The Proper Times to Take Pills

Fig 01- Gerbera Daisy

As we know, our body has a biological clock. Functions of organs in our body follow circadian rhythms, 24 hour cycles.

We may divide the body rhythms in at least 4 different times (please read Emily Anthes, published in The Atlantic, August 18, 2020):

1) Morning

- Increasing of our body temperature, blood pressure, cortisol levels and heart rate.

2) Mid- morning time

- our body at the level of most vigilant

3) Afternoon hours

- Performance of our body is at peak in terms of organization, flexibility, and strength.

4) Night

- pineal gland starts to release melatonin

- when sleeping: there is increasing level of gastric acid

What are consequences of our biological rhythm to our medications? let’s say relation between the proper time to take pill and activity of our body.

Here, we make examples of two medications (please read Jackie Middleton, published in Best Health, April 2, 2021):

- blood pressures medications

- cholesterol medications

It is suggested to take blood pressure medications at night, because the cholesterol level is higher at night. Hence, taking pills before bed time will reduce the cholesterol level.

Moreover, researchers found that dropping of blood pressure occurs when patients take medications at night.

Finally, we should consult to our physicians about the best time to take any medications.

  25. Great article, Evi. Really important, vital information is the word that best defines it... I had very high cholesterol levels a few years ago. I was cured by a naturopathic doctor with a grapefruit overdose, one at breakfast, another at lunch, another at snack time, and another at dinner, and another whenever I felt craving or hungry... for six months. Fortunately, it gave me the pleasure of eating grapefruit. I will be eternally grateful.

    Huge hugs ever bigger and more grateful, friend.
