Hi, I'm Rachael Richardson, with Nutrolution, in South Beach, Florida. In this clip, we're talking about which vitamins should not be taken together. Now, one simple thing that you can do to make sure that you're not getting the wrong vitamins taken together is eat from nature, because in nature all the different vitamins are are in the foods in the right proportions in order to be absorbed best by your body. One thing to keep in mind also is to always cook your vegetables in a little bit of healthy fat, like olive oil or butter, and this actually helps with nutrient absorption from those foods, and it also tastes good. A couple vitamins that should not be taken together are; iron should not be combined with calcium, so if you are taking iron pills then you don't want to take it with a glass of milk, or cheese, or anything like that. Instead, it's better to take it with some sort of vitamin C, so something like taking your iron with a glass of orange juice or an orange is great. Other vitamins that you don't want to combine or nutrients are different amino acids, such as lysine; combining lysine with other protein foods if you're using lysine for specific lysine purposes. This has been Rachael, in Miami Beach, Florida, with Nutrolution.
