Vitamins are essential to life, growth and reproduction. They are called micro-nutrients because we need them in tiny amounts in our diet. Vitamins can be water soluble and fat soluble.
Water soluble vitamins are not stored in the body but are quickly and easily lost. That means that we need these vitamins every day. Some examples of water soluble vitamins: B Vitamins, Folic Acid, Vitamin C.
Fat soluble vitamins are stored in the body, mainly in the fat cells and liver. They are Vitamin A (Retinol), Beta Carotene, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K.
