1. Take vitamins with meals
It’s a good idea to take some vitamins and minerals along with meals as they may have less potential to upset your stomach if your belly is full (make sure to follow directions on the label and advice from your healthcare professional). Also, associating taking vitamins with a meal is a great way to avoid forgetting. “I love recommending vitamins with breakfast,” says Mary Bamford, a registered dietitian at the Adelaide Health Clinic in Toronto. “It offers two benefits. The first is consistently eating breakfast and starting your day fueled and energized. The second is that it’s usually in the privacy of your own home, so it’s easier.”
If you’re taking any kind of medication in the morning, check with your doctor to determine the right time of day to take vitamin supplements. And always talk to your doctor before taking any new supplements.
