Ok I had a quick question when is the best time to take my multi vitamin, before I go to bed or with breakfast in the morning?
That depends. Let me explain what I mean.
The #1 rule of vitamins is: Don’t take them on an empty stomach! If you do, you may feel nauseous.
But here’s what you can do. Take a mult-vitamin with food. Now if you have one of those types that is just one pill, you can take it with breakfast or with dinner. But some multis come in packets. And eventually you may find yourself taking 20 pills a day.
Now this is where you might want to split it up over your various meals.
And my rule has always been to just follow the directions of the brand you are taking. Each multi is different. Some are one pill. Some are more potent and are made to be spread out during the day or a portion of them taken in the evenings.
My current Animal Paks recommend you take all 5 with a meal. I usually do that with breakfast so that my body can absorb what it needs for a workout later. I tend to tapper off at night as my metabolism is slower and I don’t want a bunch of things in my system when I’m at my restful state.
However, spreading them out is just fine. And you might have to do that depending on which multi-vitamin you have.
So it really depends on the brand, the recommendations and the type of vitamins you have. If it’s a more potent pack, and there’s many to take, spreading them out will help. But if it’s simply just one multi-vitamin, you might as well start off the most important meal of the day (breakfast) with a power punch.
