Vitamins - Fat-Soluble (A, D, E & K)
Vitamins are necessary to maintain good health and can be obtained regularly from the food we eat such as fish, meat, all types of vegetables and fruits. There are two different kinds of vitamins: fat-soluble and water-soluble. Vitamins A, D, E and K are all fat-soluble vitamins and are stored in the body in the liver and fatty tissues for long periods of time. Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water and are not stored in the body, so they need regular replacement.
Small amounts of fat-soluble vitamins are needed to perform many functions in the body. Since these vitamins are absorbed into the blood stream before playing their roles, they are stored in the adipose (fatty) tissue when not used, so they are usually not necessary to take everyday*.
It can be hard to obtain vitamins through diet alone and deficiencies can lead to health problems, so supplementation may be necessary to adjust any deficiencies. It is also possible to get too many vitamins, since very large doses can be toxic. Please check with your doctor to determine if vitamins are necessary
*Those with deficiencies of these vitamins may be required to take them everyday, please check with a healthcare professional
