What is the best time to take Vitamins

by Sarim Sheikh 06 Dec 2023

Hey there, health-conscious readers! 

So, you've taken the leap and started incorporating nutritional supplements into your daily routine—kudos to you! 🎉

However, the question of when to take these supplements might be nagging at you. Fret not! 

We're here to shed some light on the matter and help you make the most out of your vitamin intake. 💡


Understanding Your Vitamins- Two Types of Vitamins

Well, before giving you the answer you are looking for, let me remind you that not all vitamins are alike. So, there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer. Mainly, we divide vitamins into 2 groups.

  • Fat-Soluble Vitamins
  • Water-soluble vitamins 💧

What is the best time to take Fat-Soluble Vitamins?  

🌞🌛Fat-Soluble Vitamins, as the name indicates, are the vitamins, that require fat for optimal absorption. They include vitamins A, D, E and K. 

You can buy high-quality Vitamin D and K supplements here.💊

Consider taking Fat-Soluble Vitamins during breakfast, lunch, or dinner. By consuming them with meals, which usually contain some healthy fats, you provide the perfect environment for absorption. 🥑

Here's a pro tip: if you've noticed trouble sleeping after taking certain vitamins, it's time to be a little strategic. Some individuals have reported sleep disturbances when taking vitamin D supplements, especially when consumed with dinner. If you've experienced similar issues, we recommend avoiding vitamin D with your evening meal. Instead, try taking it with breakfast or lunch, so it has ample time to energize your day without interrupting your precious sleep. 🍽️😴

What is the best time to take Water-Soluble Vitamins?

Unlike fat-soluble vitamins, Water-Soluble Vitamins including Vitamin C and the B-complex Vitamins— B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), B7 (biotin), B9 (folate), and B12 (cobalamin) don't require fat for absorption and can be taken without food and are readily absorbed. You can take them at any time of the day without concern. 🕒👍

Since your body doesn't store excess water-soluble vitamins, taking them regularly is essential. Taking them in the morning on an empty stomach with a glass of water is recommended to avoid potential sleep disturbances from B vitamins' mild stimulation. 

For Vitamin C, taking it with food can help reduce gastrointestinal side effects due to its high acidity. Also, it is best to take Vitamin C with foods, as it can help decrease the potential gastrointestinal side effects caused by its high acidity. 💊🍽️


What is the best time to take multivitamins?

What about the multivitamins? 🤔💊

It's understandable if you're still scratching your head about the best time to take them, but fear not—I've got the answers you've been seeking! 🕵️‍♂️📚

Well, since they contain both fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins, it's generally advised to take them alongside a meal with healthy fats to enhance the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. Don't forget to drink plenty of water to help dissolve vitamins. However, for the best results, consider taking individual vitamins separately. 🥗🥑💧💊


Consistency is Key:

While there isn't a strict "best time" for taking vitamins, the key to reaping their benefits lies in consistency. Forget the myth that the window of opportunity has passed if you miss a specific time. 

Even if you take supplements at the "wrong" time, absorption only drops by a mere 5 to 10%. So, what matters most is staying consistent with your supplement regimen. ⏰🗓️


Choose a Time that Suits You:

Whether you prefer starting your day with a nutrient boost or winding down with evening supplements, staying consistent ensures your body benefits from these essential nutrients. Many people find it convenient to take their vitamins in the morning or at night. These two-time frames—morning and evening—align with the start and end of your day, making them easier to remember. ⏳🌞🌛

Remember, while supplements can complement your diet, they should never replace a balanced, whole-foods-based eating plan. Your primary source of nutrients should come from the food you eat. 🥦🍎🍳

Ultimately, the best time to take vitamins is the time that fits seamlessly into your lifestyle and allows you to maintain consistency. So, listen to your body, stick to your routine, and enjoy the journey towards optimal health! 💪
