I take mine before bed because that's the only time I'll remember to take them, plus I eat dinner pretty late so I know I'm not taking them on an empty stomach, which I think is not advisable.

I take my multi after breakfast.

It's best to take vitamins after you eat. First of all, you're less likely to have an upset stomach if you take them after a meal. Plus some vitamins can only be absorbed in the presence of fat. (A, D, E, K).

well dont take anything with vitamin D in before bed as that tells your body you are out in the sun and can cause restless sleep.

I take mine about 10:00am. I can't take them at bed time because i take my body detox from my doctor and don't want the vitamins to just wash out.

I personally take mine right after lunch - they are absorbed along with whatever I eat. That, and if I take them without having food first, I feel ill

I'm interested in what people say about this too, because my boyfriend and I argue about this allll the time. He thinks it's a waste to take a vitamin any time other than right before bed, because "if you take it during the day your body won't absorb it and you'll just pee it out".

I think this is ridiculous, and believe our bodies absorb nutrients at the same rate no matter what time it is. I usually take mine with dinner, because that's when I usually happen to remember.

This might be a dumb question but I am curious. Is there a time of day that is best to take your vitamin? Or does it not matter?
