The Best Times of Day to Take Your Supplements

September 15, 2017

Is there a best time and an ideal way to take your supplements?


Dietary supplements can get pricey, and there are several factors that influence how well you're going to absorb your nutrients from them. 


There are an incredible number of variables at play.


Some nutrients:

  • Block absorption of other nutrients

  • Block absorption of medications

  • Help increase the absorption of other nutrients

  • Are fat-soluble and must be taken with food

  • Are water-soluble and can be taken away from food


How are you supposed to know?


Keeping the above in mind, the supplement information we've provided here is based on our research surrounding a typical dose and way to take it. Of course, always talk to your doctor first to consider any drug interactions and potential risks of starting a supplement regimen.


Many of these supplements are critical for thyroid patients or are found as common nutrient depletions in Hashimoto's and thyroid patients. However, these nutrients can have tremendous benefits for those who are healthy or recovering from a chronic illness.


Above all, do not blindly supplement without knowing your nutrient levels, as having too much of these vitamins and minerals in your system can be extremely dangerous. For example, Vitamin D is a critical nutrient (and not a vitamin, but a hormone!) can cause nausea, vomiting, or anxiety. Because it is a fat-soluble nutrient, it can take time to leave the body if levels are too high.
