Why should calcium and iron not be taken at the same time?

  • Calcium interferes with iron absorption.

    For most people this is not a big deal and taking all of your supplements at the same time is fine, especially if it helps you remember to take them. If you are iron deficient, or at risk of becoming iron deficient (as in pregnancy), then it is best to take the iron on an empty stomach with something acidic such as orange juice or a vitamin C tablet.
