I am trying to include 1 or 2 intermittent fasting days per week. I will fast for 36 hours (i.e. eat on Sunday normally, begin fast on Tuesday upon waking and not eat until Wednesday). I was wondering what you thought about taking supplements on fasting days? My current supplement regime consists of:

  • High dose of Omega-3s
  • Probiotics
  • Multivits
  • Astaxanthin
  • Co Q10
  • Vitamin D (oral spray)
  • Vitamin B12 (oral spray)


I have tried taking these on an empty stomach on fasting days and I always feel very sick after about half an hour. Twice I have actually been sick!! To counter this, I now take these with a teaspoon of coconut oil on fasting days which prevents any nausea. What I am wondering is whether I should not be taking these on fasting days? Does the spoon of coconut oil negate the act of fasting? I simply cannot take these supplements without some sort of fat, but perhaps on fasting days I should just not take my supplements?

Any advice you have would be very welcome!

Thanks!
