the naturopath told me it didn't really matter but suggested one pill with each meal. I can't remember that when I'm out, so I take one in the morning and two in the evening. I tried adding an Align to my Forte in the evening but found it gave me a stomachache in the night. Maybe I need to try it with food, earlier in the day.
