Vitamins and minerals - How long does it take to Feel the difference?

You’re taking supplements to experience beneficial effects, and you want to experience these effects as soon as possible. The world of nutrition is complex, which can make it difficult to find out what kind of timeline you can expect.

Our new Feel Multivitamin is packed with even more health-boosting nutrients than ever before, and now’s the time to find out just how soon this epic multivitamin will start unloading its benefits. Here are some quick facts to get you started:

  • Nutrients work faster or slower depending on your level of deficiency
  • Not all supplement types absorb at the same rate
  • Water-soluble nutrients work faster than fat-soluble nutrients
  • Vitamins, minerals and other nutrients work together in your body
  • Some nutrients are much more effective when paired with others

Different supplements absorb differently

There’s nothing simple or straightforward about how the human body works on the inside. Minerals like boron, for instance, mainly serve to boost the effects of other nutrients, and you need both iron and vitamin B12 to prevent anemia. Nature was never intended to be picked apart by science, so as we unveil the mysteries of nutrition, we have to proceed carefully.

The human body is miraculously complex

Human nutrition is anything but mechanistic; individual nutrients work with each other in synergy to manifest a holistic health boost throughout your whole body. Taking a specific nutrient on its own won’t do you much good, and certain nutrients only work well if they’re paired with other substances. Turmeric is 2000% more bioavailable when paired with piperine, for instance, and your body has trouble digesting calcium without vitamin D.

Supplement effects timeline

Supplements affect everyone differently. If you’re seriously deficient in a particular essential vitamin or mineral, it could take weeks or months to fully cure your deficiency. Not all supplements are made equal, either. Lots of different forms of calcium are used in multivitamins, but only a handful are safe. There’s a golden rule you should remember going forward:

Water-soluble nutrients absorb much faster than fat-soluble nutrients

Some of the nutrients you consume bind to water and absorb into your tissues rapidly. Other nutrients, however, bind to fat, which takes much longer and usually results in longer tissue retention times. 

After - 1 day

Twenty-four hours after your first Feel capsule, you might start to notice the effects of the B vitamins and some of the other highly-soluble ingredients in your multivitamin. These results, however, will disappear unless you keep taking a Feel capsule every day.

  • Mild energy boost
  • Better sleep
  • Improved digestion

After - 1 week

After a week has passed, you might start noticing an overall boost to your energy, digestion, and mood. Some of the less-bioavailable nutrients in your daily Feel capsule are starting to set in, and this glow you’re feeling will only get stronger if you keep providing your body with the nutrients it needs.

  • Reduced inflammation
  • Healthy biological cycles settling in

After - 2 weeks

Two weeks into your daily Feel regimen, some of the systemic effects of your nutrition-boosting choices will start becoming apparent. You might notice a reduction in your aches and pains, and your skin might seem healthier and more radiant. Your supplementation routine is really starting to pay off, but the truly profound effects are still yet to come.

  • Healthier skin and nails
  • Better energy processing leads to reduced anemia and other deficiency-related   conditions

After - 1 month

By the time you’ve been taking the vitamins and minerals your body needs for a month, you’ll have gone through a major cycle of your biological clock, and your body will get used to the nutrients you’re feeding it.

Remember that Feel Multivitamin contains much more than just the essential vitamins and minerals that have already been named. From turmeric to reishi mushrooms to spirulina, our one-of-a-kind multivitamin formula also contains the hottest ingredients that are trending in natural medicine today.

  • Nutrient synergies start working together to balance your body
  • Greater alertness, health, and well-being
  • Most deficiencies cured

After - 3 months

After three months of daily supplementation, your body will be in a nutrient-rich groove that will carry you effortlessly through life. Nutrients have fully deployed through your system, and you’ve reduced your risk of osteoporosis and cardiovascular disease.

  • Fat-soluble vitamins and minerals have fully absorbed into your tissues
  • Your bones are stored up on calcium, and your cells have all the compounds they   need to grow

After - 1 year

You’ve now completed 12 whole months of nutritional improvement with WeAreFeel. Your overall risk of disease has dramatically decreased, you have more energy, and your psychological well-being has improved immensely. Overall, your perspective on life has changed substantially, and you’re more open to the experiences life brings. Professionally, you’re right on track, and you haven’t had this much energy in years.

  • Your body has entered a harmonious nutrient schedule thanks to repeated supplementation with your daily Feel capsule
  • As long as you continue giving your body what it needs, your improved health will lead to greater happiness throughout life

Vitamin and Mineral Timeline FAQ

How long does it take for vitamin B12 to work?

Since vitamin B12 is water-soluble, this nutrient absorbs into your tissues rapidly. However, vitamin B12 only works at peak efficiency when it’s paired with the other B vitamins; each vitamin in the B complex serves a vital role, and together, these nutrients work together in synergy.

How long does it take vitamin C to work?

Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient, so it absorbs rapidly. If you want to reduce the intensity of a cold, you should start to notice the effects of your vitamin C supplements within about 24 hours.

How long does it take for vitamin D3 to work?

Vitamin D is fat-soluble, which means it takes a while for this nutrient to absorb. You should expect to notice the effects of your vitamin D supplements within about a week, and all the beneficial effects of this nutrient generally set in within around a month.
