Ok this may be a stupid question.....I'm taking Floradix and it says "take before meals." Does this mean right before meals? 10 minutes before? an hour before?

Oh and just out of curiosity, why/how does taking it with a half glass of juice make it kosher?

I take it right before I eat or right after and I've had no problems.

I don't know quite what they mean or why, but I have found that if I take it and then eat soon after, I feel fine, but if I take it after eating it gives me lots of burp type gas and some heartburn.

It means within 15 minutes before eating... DH is in supplement sales and is a homeopath and that seems to be the generall recognized protocol for "before meals".

Not sure about the juice tho.
