When is the best time to take in multivitamins? I have work at 3am-12nn and school at 1pm-6pm. I am taking enervon caps.
Early or mid-day: Multivits (esp. B vitamins) tend to give energy so it is best to take them relatively early in the day. You might take it before work or before school- when do you need more energy? You could try it at both times to see if taking it at one time helps you more than at the other time. It's generally good to take with food, as some vits are better absorbed with food & it will minimize stomach upset. ...Read more
What is the best time to take fish oil or multivitamin pills, morning, afternoon or night time? Before or after meal?
I am taking multivitamin, omega 3, vitamin d and alpha lipoic acid daily. When is the best time to take each of them. Eg. Before or after meal.
When should I take omega 3 and multivitamins (i play gym and I go to school. What's the best time)?
Best not together...: I advise taking multivits in the morning &/or afternoon- if it's a single pill am is best (as they may give you energy), if multiple pills can take some in am & some in afternoon. The minerals in the vitamin are better absorbed on an empty stomach but a/d/e better absorbed after food. Stomach upset less likely after a meal. Best to take omega 3's after a meal but at a different time. See comment:. ...Read more
Anytime: It doesn't matter when you take them but as with all medications you should stick to a prescribed routine and don't exceed the recommended dose. For multivitamins (mvi) that is usually once a day and if its not at the same time each day its ok. Understand that in healthy individuals who eat a balanced diet there is no evidence that mvi's are helpful nor will they make up for an unhealthy diet. ...Read more

If you eat a well balanced diet, you may not need a multivitamin and if you take one as a "safety net" know that you may exceed what your body needs or can use. Beta carotene by smokers actually increased the incidence of lung cancer

We usually take a daily B-100 (along with a multivitamin) but all they had this time around was B-50. So I though we would take two 50's is that on?
While it is perfectly safe to take a B-100, for the vast majority of people a B-50 is perfectly adequate, so you may find that taking one B-50 is all you really need.
As for multivitamins, some are much better than others. See https://drrandybaker. Com/2014/01/01/multivitamins-are-not-a-waste-of-money-beware-of-flawed-studies-and-biased-conclusions/ ...Read more

Ate about 10 multivitamin gummies am I okay? I always take the suggested amount, this is the first time and last time doing this.
It would help if you told us the brand/type as there are many, but none would create problems from eating 10. The only vits that can be toxic in high doses are A, D, E and B6 but you'd probably have to take hundreds of gummy vits to get toxic.
The greatest hazard of toxicity from supps is from excess iron but one would need to take at least 1000 mg of elemental iron. Most gummies are iron-free. ...Read more

Prenatal vitamins: Prenatal vitamins contain the needed amounts of iron and folic acid. Folic acid 800 micrograms (0.8 mg) is the typical dose in prenatal vitamins.

All are needed so...:
By definition all vitamins are essential for health so they are all important. Deficiencies of each are common, so I advise a good quality multivitamin. See http://drrandybaker. Com/2014/01/
While it is possible to get most vitamins with an exceptional diet, in fall and winter most Americans need D as we can't get enough from the sun. I advise extra D3- 5000 iu/day in fall & winter. ...Read more
Centrum is ok: I don't specifically endorse any one brand but I recommend a good mulivit has about 100% of the rda for most vitamin components. I see it as a nutritional seatbelt and huge excess percentages can be indicated but you need to have a reason to take then and a professional review it. Some have iron and some don't. In general, premenopausal women can have ones with iron. ...Read more
Maybe ok, unless...: It is ok to take several multivitamins and supplements at the same time, UNLESS those vitamins and supplements are not needed (because the person is already getting enough of those items via his foods and drinks). So, the answer depends on knowing what is needed, and what's in each tablet. If there is not a vitamin deficiency, then one should not take more than the total daily recommended amount. ...Read more

Is it better to take a daily multivitamin, or to take juiceplus brand supplements (anyone familiar with these?)? Or perhaps it's best to take both?
Both helpful: Studies have supported the benefits of taking a multivitamin a day. Taking too many separate vitamins, without any vitamin deficiency, may cause hypervitaminosis syndrome, which may lead to adverse effects. Vitamins, usually do not increase energy. Combining a healthy diet and 1 pill of a multivitamin per day is fine. Thanks. ...Read more

Consult: Consult with your doctor first, someone who knows your whole healthy history. Some multivitamins contain folic acid which is not the best form to take in those with reduced enzymes that metabolize folic acid. Excess folic acid= from supplements can predispose to colon cancer. Supplements may not be as harmless as you think. COnsult with your health care professional first. Good health to you. ...Read more

MVI (multivitamin) + Fe: Taking a multivitamin and iron at the same time is fine. The acidity in vitamin c helps you absorb iron better so that is good to take too. Just be careful you aren't taking anything that interferes with iron absorption at the same time, like calcium, tea, zinc, or acid-blockers like pepcid, zantac, (ranitidine) prilosec, or prevacid. ...Read more
