Free and Best Vitamins Informatio Source - List of all the known Vitamins - Fat Soluble and Water soluble


Vitamins are organic molecules that function in a wide variety of capacities within the body. The most prominent function is as cofactors for enzymatic reactions.

The distinguishing feature of the vitamins is that they generally cannot be synthesized by mammalian cells and, therefore, must be supplied in the diet.

Water Soluble Vitamins

When you eat foods that have water-soluble vitamins, the vitamins don't get stored as much in your body. Instead, they travel through your bloodstream. And whatever your body doesn't use comes out when you urinate.

Fat Soluble Vitamins

Fat Soluble vitamins are stored in the fat tissues in your body and in your liver. They go and wait around in your body fat until your body needs them. Fat-soluble vitamins are happy to stay stored in your body for awhile - some stay for a few days, some for up to 6 months! Then, when it's time for them to be used, special carriers in your body take them to where they're needed.
