What are Vitamins | List of Vitamins | Vitamin Guide




What are Vitamins?
1. Vitamins are organic compounds which are needed in small quantities to strengthen life.
2. They are vital nutrient required by living things.
3. We get vitamins from food, because the human body either does not produce enough of them, or does not produce at all.

Vitamins can be divided into 2 types:
Fat soluble vitamins

Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the fat tissues of our bodies, as well as the liver. Fat-soluble vitamins are easier to store than water-soluble ones, and can stay in the body as reserves for days, some of them for months.

Vitamins A, D, E and K are fat-soluble.
Water Soluble vitamins

Water-soluble vitamins do not get stored in the body for long – they soon get expelled through urine. Water-soluble vitamins need to be replaced more often than fat-soluble ones.

Vitamins C and all the B vitamins are water-soluble




List of vitamins
Vitamin A
Vitamin B, B2, B3, B5, B6,B7, B9, B12
Vitamin C
Vitamin D
Vitamin E
Vitamin K
Vitamin A:
Food Sources:
Liver, orange, ripe yellow fruits, leafy vegetables, carrots, pumpkin, squash, spinach, fish, soya milk, milk.

Vitamin B1:
Pork, oatmeal, brown rice, vegetables, potatoes, liver, eggs

Vitamin B2:
Dairy products, bananas, popcorn, green beans, asparagus

Vitamin B3:
Meat, fish, eggs, many vegetables, mushrooms, tree nuts

Vitamin B5:
Meat, broccoli, avocados

Vitamin B6:
Meat, vegetables, tree nuts, bananas

Vitamin B7:
Raw egg yolk, liver, peanuts, leafy green vegetables

Vitamin B9:
Leafy vegetables, pasta, bread, cereal, liver

Vitamin B12:
Meat, poultry, fish, eggs, milk

Vitamin C
Many fruits and vegetables, liver

Vitamin D
Fish, eggs, liver, mushrooms

Vitamin E
Many fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds

Vitamin K
Leafy green vegetables such as spinach, egg yolks, liver

Many vitamins are found in fruit and vegetables. Ideally, these food sources should be eaten raw, as vitamins can be partially lost during the cooking process. However, just as the right amount of vitamins is essential for good health, the intake of too many vitamins can also be harmful.
