- +1) What time of day is the best to take health supplements?
- In the morning:Water-soluble vitamins, such as Vitamin C and B Vitamins, are ideal for taking in the morning, meaning you can pop these in before you even roll out of bed.
Fat-soluble vitamins, such as Vitamin E, are best when taken alongside other healthy fats such as milk in cereal or mixed nuts.
Co-Q10 vitamins help boost energy and are best taken late morning/early afternoon with a helping of dietary fats. As Co-Q10 can affect sleep, it’s generally best to take them before any signs of fatigue set in.
In the afternoon:
Zinc is a wonder for the immune system but it shouldn’t be taken first thing in the morning and should never be consumed on an empty stomach as it can cause nausea.
Vitamin D and Vitamin K are fat-soluble vitamins and promote healthy bones, teeth and muscles. Taking these in the afternoon is ideal as you get the most benefits by supplementing with a meal.
Fish Oils are amazing for good eye and heart health and are only absorbed when taken with a main meal with dietary fats. Ideally, this would be with lunch or dinner.
In the evening:
Calcium and Magnesium are two important minerals which promote healthy muscles, nerves and bones. Taken separately, calcium and magnesium are good, but taken together, they’re magic.
- +2) Does Zinc Supplement make you Obese?
- You need zinc for forming proteins and DNA and for proper immune function. Getting extra zinc in your diet isn’t likely to cause weight gain if you are already getting the recommended amount, although some studies have shown beneficial effects on weight gain in people who are zinc deficient.
A study published in 2013 found that obese study subjects who consumed zinc supplements containing 30 milligrams of zinc gluconate daily had improved body mass indices, lost weight and showed improvements in triglyceride levels.

When combined with 5-HTP, the precursor to tryptophan (which eventually gets converted to serotonin) to encourage a heavy sleep, you’ll be well on your way to a good night’s sleep.
- +4) Which supplements can help migranes headache?
- According to the Association of Migraine Disorders, a few smaller studies suggest that coenzyme Q10 is more effective than placebos for reducing the frequency of migraines. The typical dosage is up to 100 mg of coenzyme Q10 taken three times per day. Research has yet to show how or why vitamin B-2, or riboflavin, might help prevent migraines. Butterbur is an herb that may help some people prevent migraines. A recent review of the research on magnesium’s effectiveness for migraine prevention was published. The authors note that migraine attacks have been linked to magnesium deficiency in some people.
