All supplements are best taken at varying times of the day dependant on the reason for taking them, your goal, your personal preference and the product itself. For example, some supplements that are “one per day” are best simply took with food on a morning, whereas other supplements may benefit from split dosages and or specifically timed dosages. We’ve given a few examples of the most popular supplements and when best to take them below:
Grass-Fed Whey: As a dietary supplement whey is best taken at anytime of the day as a snack with yoghurt, as a shake in your Blender Bottle with water or juice or even mixed into curries or chillies. As an exercise or performance-enhancing supplement it’s best taken 1hr before exercise to provide energy for your workout, and within 1 hour after exercise to aid repair and recovery.
Omega 3 Supplements: Fish oil supplements are best taken with foods or meals containing fat, as the production of bile and enzymes used to metabolise the fats in your meal can assist and enhance digestion and absorption of your omega 3.
Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is best used as a baking, frying or cooking agent, but some people supplemented it once or twice per day by the spoonful for it’s energy boosting properties.
Magnesium: Magnesium’s uptake is thought to be higher in the evening due to it’s mild sedative affect on the nervous system, meaning evening dosages can enhance sleep and recovery if taken 1-2 hours before bed time.
