Many people have low vitamin D levels and therefore supplement their normal diet by taking a vitamin D supplement. Current studies indicate that 60-90% of the German population has a low vitamin D level. To achieve an optimal effect, we explain in the following blog post when the best time to take vitamin D is.
1 When should I take vitamin D?
With high-dose vitamin D preparations, the time of day plays only a minor role. Whether you take a capsule or tablet in the morning, at noon or in the evening is not important for the efficiency of the intake. If you are generally sensitive to food supplements, vitamin D should not be taken on an empty stomach.
2. Should I take vitamin D with a meal?
Some studies suggest that vitamin D intake is improved when taken with a meal. Since vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, the fat content of the diet allows for optimal absorption.
3. Should I take vitamin K2 in addition to vitamin D?
Vitamin D should always be taken together with vitamin K2, as both vitamins work synergistically. This means that taking a high dose of vitamin D can lead to a decrease in vitamin K2 levels. A vitamin K2 deficiency leads to problems with the integration of calcium into the bones. For this reason, both vitamins should always be taken together.
4 Which vitamin D preparation is suitable for me?
If you want to supplement your diet with a vitamin D preparation, you should choose a product from Germany. This should be free of artificial additives to avoid allergies and intolerances. Vitamin D is a synonym for vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol). Anyone who is generally sensitive to food supplements or nuts should pay attention to the origin of the active ingredient. Many vitamin D3 preparations are made from peanut oil or sheep fat (lanolin). To avoid interactions, a herbal vitamin D3 preparation should be used.

5. conclusion: When should I take vitamin D?
Vitamin D can be taken at any time of the day, but should be taken with a meal. This leads to an optimized intake. Those who take high amounts of vitamin D should also take vitamin K2 in order to avoid negative effects on calcium utilization. Vitamin D3 capsules without additives, which are produced in Germany, are particularly suitable as a food supplement. These should contain vegetable cholecalciferol to exclude side effects.
