What’s The Right Time of Day To Take High-Quality Supplements?

Here at NutriFlair, we’re proud to offer you high-quality supplements that are made right here in the United States. But once we put them in a box and ship them to you, we have no control over how you take them. Certainly you should read the label on any supplements you take, whether you purchase them online or at a brick and mortar store. And, of course, it’s always a good idea to get a doctor involved whenever you make any changes to your diet and exercise routine.

There are as many ways to take health-promoting capsules as there are people, but we thought we’d break down some of the more common ways the people take high-quality supplements from NutriFlair.

When They Agree With You

One thing you’ll quickly notice when taking supplements is that they may affect you differently at different parts of the day. Some people find that even the highest-quality supplements can lead to an upset stomach, but it tends to vary by person. So you’ll want to try them at the most convenient time for you, and if that works out, then great! If not, try them at a different time of day, perhaps with different foods. Speaking of which...

With A Meal

Some supplements should be taken with a meal, others should be taken 30 minutes before you eat so that they can start to work before the food hits your stomach. Capsules are delivering a lot of similar vitamins, minerals, or supplements at the same time, which could upset some stomachs. When you take it with food, you’re increasing the amount of other nutrients that are being absorbed at the same time and taking in the supplement over a longer period of time. See the list at the bottom of this blog for suggestions on whether or not you should take our high-quality supplements with food.

Have Some Fat

Fat can actually help you absorb some vitamins better than other foods, especially fat-soluble vitamins. Heavier foods can also help avoid upset stomachs.

How Does Your Day Work?

Everyone’s schedule is a little different. While some people are racing out the door every morning just to catch the subway, others are up for a leisurely two hours before meandering to work. But the person who meanders to work might not even get a proper lunch, while the person who rushed out the door might take a leisurely lunch every day. Of course, not everyone wants to take pills in front of other people, even if they’re preventive pills and not prescribed ones. The time of day you take our high-quality supplements might depend entirely on the way you live your life.

If You’re Taking Multiple Supplements...

Many people like to take multiple supplements to keep on top of their health routine as well as possible. They might be taking our psyllium husk pills in order to help with a colon cleanse and our DHEA capsules to help with energy. Once you start taking more than a couple of supplements, or if you find that they are interacting with your stomach in a negative way, it might be best to break them up throughout the day. By taking one with each meal you can absorb the supplements throughout the day. Of course, most people don’t like one more thing to remember at each meal, so that bring up our next point...

Breakfast Has Its Advantages

If your body doesn’t mind taking supplements in the morning, breakfast might be a good time. Why? Because if you forget, you still have two more meals to catch up!

But Maybe Not With Breakfast

Of course, breakfast can have its disadvantages if you’re not having any fat with it. Sugary, low-fat breakfasts like donuts won’t help with the breakdown and uptake as mentioned above. Also, many people have hot tea or coffee with breakfast, which can affect the uptake of certain vitamins or minerals. When it comes to probiotics, avoid extremely hot drinks; you’re dealing with live cultures and don’t want the heat to kill them.
