Best time to take Vitamin D & Krill Oil?

Just wondering whether I should add these to my morning supplements or my night supplements.

Of course this is assuming I can get in the habit of taking them at night - can't set an alarm when my bed time varies so much!

Also about the krill oil - I bought MegaRed Krill Oil on impulse today at Sam's Club after reading about krill oil here. I've been avoiding fish oil because I despise fish and just the thought of fishy aftertaste makes me queasy. Is this an ok brand? I know low cost supplements are looked down upon, and comparing to what's on Netrition these were pretty low cost.

Thanks for any help!

Both should be taken with food. Morning and evening doesn't matter as much as taking them with food.

I think MegaRed Krill Oil is a great healthy option available at Sam's or Costco. I learned to avoid vitamins and supplements with magnesium stearate or titanium dioxide. Magnesium stearate’s sole purpose is to prevent ingredients clogging the machinery. It is my understanding that it hinders the absorption of nutrients, which in my mind is counter productive for taking vitamins and supplements. A vegetable source of Magnesium stearate is fine. I have found gel or veggie caps if they use magnesium stearate it is the preferred vegetable source of magnesium stearate. As for titanium dioxide, it is solely used to make pills whiter and is a known carcinogen. So I choose to avoid it. I have included this bit on titanium dioxide on this post because if you use D3 both of these ingredients are found in some formulas.

I think if taken in the morning they'll absorb better than if taken at night. MegaRed is a pretty good brand.
