The main reason for this post is to possibly help sleep since so many have issues with sleep. Maybe, just maybe, this can help.
The best time for you to take your supplements depends on the benefit you hope to gain in some cases. Your doctor is the best resource for this but we wanted to share information "just in case" your sleep issues could be helped by this easy tweak in the way you take your supplements.
To make things a little more complicated, specific vitamins need to be combined with a meal containing some fat to absorb properly. These "fat-soluble" supplements only dissolve and get absorbed by the body when taken with fat. Taking your supplements in the morning with a fat-free breakfast could possibly even defeat the purpose of taking them. Some supplements like Iron, magnesium and fish oil supplements are the most reported for causing digestive upset when taken on an empty stomach.
Then there are supplements that are actually more helpful if taken in evening or at bedtime.
Lastly, taking supplements in the morning or afternoon gives your gut time to absorb them before bedtime.
Here are the most common supplements that should be avoided late in day/evening. It doesn't mean they can't be taken in the evening, it is just more recommended morning and afternoon.
