We get this question a lot. And the best answer we can muster is “it depends.” When it comes to BoxJump supplements, we try to put the best and most specific dosage instructions on the bottle. Certain supplements are best taken on an empty stomach, and others that are better to take with a meal. It all depends on how your body metabolizes a particular nutrient, or perhaps if it could cause upset on an empty stomach.
Unless there is a specific direction to take a supplement on an empty stomach, we typically recommend taking your supplements with breakfast. We recommend this for a couple of reasons. First, the majority of nutrients are best absorbed if they are accompanied by the consumption of healthy fats and proteins. Second, it’s simply a good habit. As we’ve noted in other blog posts, habit formation is huge. If you can incorporate a supplement routine into your typical day, you are much more likely to remember to take them and therefore get the most benefit from them.
