Taking supplements on an empty stomach
August 3, 2017 8:14 AM   Subscribe

I'm taking Xiao Yao San herbs for women's health issues per my acupuncturist. I'm supposed to take them on an empty stomach several times a day. I'm finding conflicting information about to time this. I've been waiting 2 hours after I eat, taking the dose, then waiting 45 minutes to an hour to eat again. Is this sufficient time for 1.) the food to digest, and 2.) the herbs to get into my system?

I used to be on the same med with the same schedule of not eating right around them, three times a day. What you're doing sounds fine.

Yes. This is fine. It won't affect their efficacy.
