Question: Hi,
I am taking supplements for IBS and Chronicle Prostatitis.
I take for IBS: L-Glutamine, Probiotics and Omega 3.
For Chronic Prostatitis :Zinc and Pygeum.
I would like to ask if I can take these supplements daily without stopping or should I take a break period and take a scheduled rotation?
If I should take an on / off rotation schedule, could you please tell me what the rotation should be?
These supplements really work for my issues.
Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Take them without break

Detailed Answer:
hello and thank you for asking HCM,

I understand your concern especially while you are taking so many supplements. But there is no reason for fear. You can take them daily without breaks, especially while they give good results.
If you manage worse od your symptoms contact your GP, because than you will need including these supplements also other medication.

I hope this answer was helpful to you.
