What would be the best time to take them?
Morning, night, whenever, use with protein shake with post workout to aid w/ absorption.
Also when does the body use certain vitamins? Like vitamin C, does it use it at night more so than during the day?
Ugh, they are probably used during all time of the day. Metabolic processes do not suddenly stop or start during specific parts of the day. Recovery occurs while sleeping and awake.
I think that night would be the best time to take supplements because our body does allot of repair work during our sleep.
I know that vitamins and minerals interact and sometimes impede absorption and so taking a bunch of viatmins at night before bed wouldn't be that good.
Your contradicting yourself and that doesn't make sense. They will impede with each other no matter when you take them during the day. If you take individual vitamins then take ones that affect each other absorption at different parts fo the day. Ex Take iron and vitamin C in the morning and take zinc at a different time, etc.
Also Fat soluble viatmins are stored right? so it would make sense to not bother taking in supplements at night, if we ate a good source of vegetables during the day.
You're really confusing me.
Your thought processes are confusing me a bit.
-Its best to take them at night right?--->No... they interefere with each others absorption so I shouldn't take them at night--->No... don't take at night since veggies provide vitamins and minerals.
