Have you ever wondered when is the best time to take supplements? Do you know if you should take your collagen in the morning, zinc in the evening, and Vitamin C before you go to bed? It’s a question we get asked a lot. So is there a best time to take supplements?
Although there is no WRONG time to take vitamins in terms of impacting your health, certain vitamins do benefit you in different ways depending on when you take them. So, we have put together the ultimate guide as to the best time to take supplements.
Good Morning Vitamins
Water Soluble Vitamins
The best vitamins to take in the morning are water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin C and B vitamins. This is because they provide a natural energy boost and help fight that early morning grog. They also don’t need to be taken with food, meaning you can pop these in before you even roll out of bed.
Fat Soluble Vitamins
You can take fat-soluble vitamins anytime throughout the day, but you do get the most benefit first thing in the morning as they naturally kick-start your circulation. Vitamin E, for example, is best when taken alongside other healthy fats such as milk in cereal or mixed nuts.
Co-Q10 helps boost energy and are best taken late morning/early afternoon with a helping of dietary fats. As Co-Q10 can affect sleep, it’s generally best to take them before any signs of fatigue set in.
