When is the Best Time to Take Vitamin D Supplements?
Americans are suffering from Vitamin D deficiencies – more than 40 percent of the population, according to recent studies. The good news? There are three easy fixes: sunlight, proper nutrition, and Vitamin D supplements.
First, let’s discuss who this is affecting in the U.S., and how a Vitamin D deficiency can alter your health. You may be surprised.
We all need different amounts of Vitamin D. It all depends on how deficient you are and how your body absorbs the vitamin D. That being said, there are several populations that typically suffer from higher levels of this deficiency. The list includes:
- People with poor eating habits
- Adults over age 65
- People using sunblock religiously
- Medical patients suffering from chronic diseases or taking certain medications
- People who avoid sun exposure
- People with dark skin who have higher amounts of melanin, reducing the body’s ability to produce Vitamin D from sun exposure
Why are Vitamin D Supplements Important?
This fat-soluble vitamin comes in two forms: D2 an D3. Its D3 that helps our bodies absorb and maintain calcium and phosphate. Both are linked to bone health. We’ve also found Vitamin D3 to help with acne.
What Are Examples of Foods Rich in Vitamin D?
- Cow’s milk and Vitamin-D fortified milk
- Oatmeal and whole-grain fortified cereals that are high in fiber
- Fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, herring, halibut, mackerel, and tuna
- Shrimp and oysters
- Egg yolks (Pasture-raised)
- Wild mushrooms
When is the Best Time to Take My Vitamin D Supplement?
If you are taking your vitamin D3 in pill form, experts recommend taking the pill with a full meal – preferably a fatty meal – to maximize absorption. If you take Frunutta’s vitamin D3 tablets, you don’t need to worry about any of the above since it absorbs under your tongue and directly into your bloodstream, no worries about fatty meals or no meals in the stomach, it never reaches it!
There is a debate about the best time of day to take Vitamin D3 – there is some research that suggests Vitamin D3 may negatively impact your sleep. Until further research is available, we recommend you consume your Vitamin D3 supplements first thing in the morning. Make it part of your morning ritual. It’s easier than having to remember to take them later in your busy day.
