I don't know if it's the best time, but I usually take a multi vitamin with dinner. Every so often I take it right before bed.
Curious what others have to say...

My multi is a two softgel dose and I take one softgel w/ breakfast and one before bed. I think that the body reacts better to having the dosages split up. If I had to pick one time, it would be before bed do my body could have a fresh shot of micronutrients to assist with recovery.

I've heard the best time to take it is with lunch. I used to take mine in the morning but a guy at my nutrition store (I don't know how reputable he is) told me it's better to take it at lunch because in the morning the stomach isn't able to digest the vitamin fully so a lot of it is lost. Sounds like bunk to me.
IMO it doesn't really matter when you take it as long as your dosing it. Either way you look at it, if you're taking 1 a day & you take it at the same time every day your simply taking 1 every 24 hours. How would what time of the day you take it vary this unless there's some sort of chemistry behind this I'm not considering.

multi's should be taken thru out the day for best results.. with food or with out food is up to you and your body.. some people can not handle the amount of some B's within a multi and thusly feel sick.. others.. like.. me.. it doesn't matter... but again.. even one a days.. do not do you much of any good... ( though its better than nothing) split them about.. morning.. noon and yes.. before bed...

I eat a lot of cereal these days (im in college) so i just started buying Total rather than wheaties... I know it sounds pretty "costo protienish" but i thought id give it a whirl.

College=the root of most young people nutritional problems. LOL
I know my diet is skewed thanks to school.

oddly enough my diet is drastically better now that im here.
I had pretty much stopped lifting (lazy/no partner) at home and i was eating out two to three times a day.
In the three weeks ive been away from home i have eaten out twice and im on a set lifting/cardio schedule.
I seriously had a pale complection when i left for college and now without tanning I have a lot more color to my face.
(but ya,,, most of the kids i live with eat like ****. (hot pockets ect.))

WTF? you people got nothing better to do? Take 'em when you remember. Before, after, during, morning, evening if I start to worry about some little **** like that... You get the point.

If they are syntetic vitamins like 99.99% of multis, the earlier u take in the day, the better.Originally Posted by ZoMbSta
But ALSO some stuff can be irritating to the stomach, so taking after a meal would be better.
To sum up, the ideal is to take your multi after the first meal of the day, which has to be a decent meal not just a juice, but our breakfast is more then decent, isnt it?

Obviously the most important thing is to take them everyday, but I like to take them after my workout when my body is starving for nutrients with my creatine and protein shake. Any other time I take it, I just piss it right through an hour later (my piss is flourecsant yellow). When I take it after working out (I usually get the flourecsant color 3-4 hours later). Just my opinion but most important is taking them everyday.

having yellow piss usually means you are not getting enough water...are you sure you drink enough??
to syr: you mean there are non-sythetic vitamins?...what is the difference?

ive read in a couple places that the best time to take it is at lunch. I do know that multis require whole food to maximize their digestion and uptake. I would guess the breakfast lunch or dinner would be fine.

i definitely drink a lot of water 1-2 gallons a day. Just a personal observation of bright flourescent yellow, not regular yellow.

haha...maybe you might be able to glow in the dark soon from ur comments...oops..not trying to be rude...but yeah..
2hrs before w/o the logic is to force the nutrients into ur body during w/o?

It's from the vitamins and its normal. I believe its the B vitamins that cause it.Originally Posted by cgcrz8

Either that or B vitamins. You should know the difference of COLOR from either caseOriginally Posted by ZoMbSta
There is some algae and herbal extracts but the amount of nutrients is unknown and so normal syntetic vitamins are the way to go. Natural nutrients of all kinds have a different absorbtion and in general there is no better time to consume them.to syr: you mean there are non-sythetic vitamins?...what is the difference?
