It's a new year — and chances are you're adding a few new habits to your daily routine. Hopefully, one of these involves taking your Binto supplements (if you're not already!). If so, you might be wondering when is the best time to take your vitamins.
Good news: We've got you covered — and it's probably a lot more simple than you may think.
Here's the general rule of thumb: Take one packet per day, ideally at nighttime. If mid-morning (after breakfast) or lunch time works better for your schedule, that's okay too. It's important to keep it consistent, so the best time to take your vitamins is the one you'll remember.
Swallow your supplements with 12 ounces of water to ensure you don't experience indigestion. And don't take them on an empty stomach, as this can cause some women to experience nausea. Taking vitamins after a meal helps your body absorb and digest the nutrients better, too.
Finally, before starting any new supplement routine, double-check with your doctor to make sure all your vitamins are compatible with any other medications you may be taking. Most of Binto's vitamins will be safe with most medications, but if you're taking any herbal supplements, you'll want to make sure they're not interfering.
Some other precautions to follow include:
- If you are trying to become pregnant, take a prenatal vitamin. These should include 800mcg of folate and iron, vitamin D3, vitamin K, DHA/EPA, and B vitamins. Binto's personalized prenatal kit includes the supplements you need to fill in the gaps in your daily diet — without overdoing it.
- If you're a woman of childbearing age, you should be getting at least 400mcg of folate per day, which helps prevent neural tube defects of the fetus. We use methylated folate, which is the more active form of folate, compared to folic acid. (Learn more about our highest-quality ingredients here.)
- If you take Synthroid or a thyroid medication in the morning, take your supplements in the p.m.
- If you're on antibiotics, still take your probiotic — just not at the same time as your antibiotic.
