  • ‘first thing in the morning’… or ‘afternoon’ or ‘evening… depends on what hours you work?! I work nights. Dr. Suzuki, thanks you for explaining the ‘right before… ‘ part. Otherwise I would’ve always stuck with the ‘first thing in the morning’… and then I go to sleep!

I always makes it at home and keep it in fridge or freezer. Liquid vitamins always can absorb your body easy. But buy it from health store to make sure you are getting the good quality. Always stay a way process food and white sugar and white flour. Eating healthy keep you from those doctors,to give you free drugs because their part of arrangements with drug companies. Take care of yourself as no one cares ����
