Nutrition & Diets : Best Time to Take Vitamin B Complex

My name is Christine Marquette and I am a
Registered and Licensed Dietitian with The Austin Regional Clinic and I am going to talk
to you about the best time to take a Vitamin B Complex. In general the best time to take
it is in the morning after you have had a meal, after you have had breakfast. With these
vitamins in particular you really want to take them in the morning as opposed to in
the evening. The reason why is that these vitamins are used in metabolism and for this
reason they do cause an increase for most people, an increase in their levels of energy.
Now again all of those B vitamins have various roles in our metabolic pathways, they are
actually used as catalysts to make sure that our metabolism is occurring correctly so for
this reason they are used in breaking down carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Now when
those foods are broken down again generally your body is using those calories for energy
so if you were to take a B vitamin before you were going to go to bed that would again
effect your metabolism, you would have that boost in energy and you would probably have
some trouble relaxing and actually getting to sleep so again the best time is to take
it in the morning. You also want to take it after you have eaten something because remember
it is involved in breaking down carbohydrates, proteins, and fats so it is best to have some
food in your system. If you don’t have any food in your system you lose some of the benefit
of those B vitamins. You won’t absorb as many of them. You won’t get as much benefit out
of it and you just won’t use as many of them. So again the best time to take a B complex
is first thing in the morning after you have had your first meal.
