What is the best time to take your multivitamins?

Although there is no scientific evidence that suggests that taking multivitamins at a particular time can enhance its effectiveness. However, taking them at the right time may reduce any risk of adverse effects.

Why are the timings important for Vitamins?

Vitamins work in different ways. If we give a bit of thought to how to take these Vitamins or when to take them. Most people believe that multivitamins are supposed to be taken with meals. This, however, is not true in all cases. People mustn’t break their daily supplements, especially if they are taking them to manage a deficiency.

Generally, it is believed that it is better to get nutrition from a balanced diet than from a supplement taking them is a necessity, you can easily fit them into your daily schedule. Here are different types of Vitamins and the best time to take them

The water-soluble Vitamin

Vitamin C and Vitamin B are water-soluble Vitamins. Our body does not produce or even store water-soluble Vitamins. So, people have to consume these vitamins from plants, animals, or some other supplement sources. Vitamin C can be taken at any time of the day.

You can get the maximum nutritional value of Vitamin C naturally from grapefruit, lemons, and orange juice. It is important to note that the body does not retain Vitamin C, so it is advisable to get a bit of it on daily basis in small doses.

Vitamin B, on the other hand, is taken to reduce stress and boost energy. Because of its energy-boosting benefits, it is best to take them immediately after waking up. Some studies have proved that Vitamin B-6 can mess up your sleep and can help induce vivid dreams. To avoid them, you must take those much earlier in the day.

The fat-soluble Vitamins

Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K are some of the fat-soluble Vitamins. It is important to note here that these Vitamins should be consumed in small amounts as they can be quite harmful or even toxic if consumed in large quantities.

These Vitamins dissolve in oil, hence the name and that is the reason why there is a misconception that these Vitamins must be consumed along with food. Food will never get rid of the fat-soluble content of the Vitamins and usually, you get these Vitamins from a balanced diet than the supplements.

It is always better to consult your physician before starting on an Intamin supplement vitamin.
