The right time to take various nutrients

Compound vitamin, is better taken after the meal. Vitamin is divided into two kinds, one is fat soluble, such as vitamin A, D, E, K, the other is water soluble, such as vitamin C and B. After meals, fat-soluble vitamin can dissolve in food lipid, which is easier to be absorbed by human body. Generally compound vitamin contains both fat-soluble vitamin and water soluble vitamin, so after meals, they can be better absorbed.
Calcium tablet is better absorbed before bedtime. The best time for taking calcium tablet is in the evening, 2-3 hours before bedtime.

  rotein powder should go with meals. The vegetarians and people who want to keep good figure will choose protein powder as a supplement. Taking it during meals can better the absorption.

There is no consensus yet as to the best time to take it.
