It's The Best Time To Take Vitamin Supplements

LENGKONG, AYOBANDUNG.COM – Some people may be accustomed to taking vitamin supplements at night before bed. But there are also those who often do it in the morning after waking up. Which is the best?

Actually there are several things that need to be taken into account to choose the best time to take vitamin supplements. One of them is how the vitamin supplement affects sleep quality.

Raixa Rivas MD family doctor does not recommend taking vitamin supplements at night. The reason is, some vitamin supplements can stimulate neurological activity.

“And disturbing sleep, especially vitamin B-complex,” said Rivas, as reported by Pop Sugar, Wednesday (30/12/2020).

In line with Rivas, dermatologist Russell Cohen MD also said some supplements are not recommended for consumption before bed. However, there are also supplements that are actually best taken at bedtime. One of them is a magnesium supplement because it has soothing properties.

Apart from the impact on sleep, another thing to consider is meal times. This consideration is important, especially for water-soluble or fat-soluble vitamin supplements.

Water-soluble vitamin supplements tend to be better taken in the morning. The reason is, the absorption of these vitamins is better when the stomach is empty. Some examples of water soluble vitamins are vitamin B12, vitamin C, folic acid, and other B vitamins.

However, fat-soluble vitamins are best absorbed after a meal. Therefore, these vitamins should be consumed after meals. Some examples of fat-soluble vitmain are vitamins A, D, E, and K.
