When to take HOT- ROX

The HOT-ROX bottle says to take the product on an empty stomach prior to breakfast.

Here’s my morning schedule - please let me know when I should be taking it.

5:00am - wake up and take thyroid medicine (levoxyl), which the manufacturer says should be taken on an empty stomach at least 1 hour prior to eating.

5:15am - 6:15am workout

6:15am - post workout protein drink

7:00am - off to work

8:00am - breakfast at work

10:30am - snack

12:30pm - lunch

3:00pm - snack

6:00pm - dinner

9:00pm - cottage cheese or low carb grow, then to bed.

Is it okay to take with my protein drink at 6:15am, or will it mess with absorption? If I took it at 6:15am, then 6 hours later would be right before lunch. Should I wait till 7am to take it? Is eating breakfast at 8am too late?

Thanks in advance

Take HOT-ROX, around 45-60 min prior to or 3-4 hours after a meal. However, I do also want to point out that absorption, with food, in respect to the compounds in HOT-ROX, may actually increase absorption slightly so if you don’t hit those figures, don’t worry. As for taking it exactly 6 hours later, that’s not a big deal either. As long as you take the second within 12 hours of the last, it’s fine.
