Understanding Vitamin Timing for Optimal Benefits

While vitamins offer fantastic benefits, the timing of when you take them can influence their effectiveness. Here's a breakdown of how to optimize your vitamin intake:

Types of Vitamins

  • Water-soluble vitamins: Dissolve in water and are best absorbed on an empty stomach.

  • Fat-soluble vitamins: Absorb better when taken with a meal containing some fat.

Specific Guidance

  • Cod liver oil: This rich source of fat-soluble vitamins can be taken anytime, but avoid it right before bed for better sleep.

  • Vitamin E: Opt for the tocotrienol form and take it with meals for maximum absorption.

  • Phytonutrients: Pair with a meal containing healthy fats (like olive oil in your salad) to enhance phytonutrient extraction.

  • Betaine hydrochloride: Take immediately before meals for optimal digestive support.

  • Digestive enzymes: Also taken right before meals.

  • Bile salts or products with bile: Ideal right after a meal.
