Best to be taken in the morning. I prefer taking this two-three times a week, since I am already consuming carrots in my weightloss smoothie. Also, I am a little prone to acidity hence I limit the intake. If anyone following this has some acidity issue, please limit it to 2-3 times a week and take it adding a little water to it.
