Chrononutrition is a field of study that examines the impact of the timing of nutrient intake on the body's rhythms and health. Recent studies have shown that consuming certain nutrients in the morning can positively affect daily energy efficiency and health status.


Timing of Nutrients and Their Effects

  • EPA and DHA: Taking fish oil at the start of activity (e.g., breakfast) improves blood levels of EPA and DHA. This supports insulin function and may contribute to improved overall metabolic function.

  • Amino acids (Histidine): Consuming in the morning can promote wakefulness and potentially reset the body clock.

  • Lycopene and fat-soluble vitamins: Recommended for intake at breakfast time. This is when bile secretion is most active, allowing for the most efficient absorption of fat-soluble nutrients.

Optimizing Nutrient Intake

Morning meals should include fats and proteins, while dinner should limit the intake of carbohydrates and fats. This eating style optimizes insulin sensitivity, enhances daytime energy efficiency, and prevents excessive blood sugar spikes at night.

Nutrient Intake Before Sleep

Consuming nutrients such as ornithine and serine before sleep can enhance sleep quality. These regulate the secretion of melatonin, promoting better sleep.

Adopting this approach to align nutrient intake with the body's natural rhythms can contribute to health and longevity.
