I would like to begin this article off by saying, we need to really understand what a vitamin is-the two different groups, & how much you & I need to consume on a daily basis. So, what is a vitamin? A vitamin is simply an organic chemical that our bodies need & must have in very small quantities for normal growth, metabolism, & good health. What is also important about vitamins is that-they are also needed to make hormones & enzymes, these two are very important substances the body uses to produce the large amount of chemical reactions we need to live. The best place to get these very important vitamins is in your food, but they can also be taken in different supplements. If I’m not mistaking, there are thirteen kinds of vitamins, and with no objection-we need all of them, especially the B vitamin, because this is the one that converts our food into energy.
Let’s talk about how vitamins are grouped, the first group is the Fat-Soluble Vitamins, this particular vitamin are stored in our bodies, & mostly in the fatty tissues & also in the liver. The vitamins A,E,D, & K are the fat-soluble vitamins, & these vitamins will dissolve in fat but not in water. Something to remember is that-knowing A,E,D, & K vitamins are stored in our bodies, there is no reason to consume them on a daily basis-because to much of anything that is already stored, will only pile up & be to much, & that will cause some serious issues.
The next group is the Water-Soluble Vitamins, & in contrast to the Fat-Soluble Vitamin, the (WSV) cannot be stored in our bodies for long periods of time. The reason Water-Soluble Vitamins cannot be stored away within us is because unlike the (FSV) the (WSV) will dissolve in water, & will pass out of our bodies, & begin that-this is the case, the (WSV) will need to be consumed on a daily basis, so taking to many (WSV’s) & overdosing won’t take place unless you are consuming very large doses. Words of Advice, Always consult with your doctor or nutritionist before you start on any kind of vitamin so you can have professional advice on what is recommended.
Here is a list of the Water-Soluble Vitamins: Vitamin C, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Niacin, Folic Acid, Thiamin, Cobalamin, Riboflavin, & Pyridoxine.
Biotin and Pantothenic are not hard to get because they are so common in just about every kind of food we eat, even if it’s food that is unhealthy for us.
