Not all vitamins and supplements break down in your body the same way. So, it’s important to know when to take each product to best benefit you.
Consistency is Key
Keep in mind, supplements are most effective when taken consistently. Creating a routine will form a healthy habit and help you get the most from your supplements.
Whether that means writing down a reminder in your agenda, setting an alarm in your phone, or purchasing a weekly pill organizer, find what works best for you and stick with it!
Omega 3 Fish Oil
Omega 3 Fish Oil is better digested when taken with high-fat meals.
If your breakfast typically involves high-fat foods such as eggs, butter, avocados, or smoothies, this might be the ideal time. If your lunch or dinner consists of fish, meat, or nuts, then this might be a better time for you.
Ultimately, you’ll get the best health benefits from omega 3 fatty acids when you split up your dosage with different meals rather than taking them all at once. This can improve bioavailability and provide your body with a consistent supply of omega 3 throughout the day.
One serving of Dr Tobias Omega 3 Fish Oil contains 2 softgels so you can split up your dosage throughout the day.
Vitamin A, D, E & K
All these vitamins have something in common – they’re fat-soluble. Your body has the ability to store them for when they’re most needed. Like Omega 3 Fish Oil, they’re better absorbed when taken with a high-fat meal.
Vitamin B & C
Vitamin B and C are both water-soluble. Unlike fat-soluble vitamins, your body can only absorb a certain amount at any given time.
Therefore, we recommend splitting up your dosage to give your body a consistent supply throughout the day. Our Dr Tobias Adult Multivitamin is split into 3 tablets a day for ultimate effectiveness.
Probiotics & Prebiotics
There hasn’t been a whole lot of research done around ultimate consumption times for probiotics and prebiotics. However, if you’re taking them for digestive reasons, we recommend consuming them with a meal.
The bottom line is, whatever it is you take, it’s important to take your vitamins and supplements consistently to see their true effects.
