Learn More about Types of Vitamins

Of the significant vitamins, some are fat-dissolvable while others are water-solvent. Water-dissolvable vitamins must be taken into the body day by day, as they can’t be put away and are flushed out inside one to four days. These incorporate C vitamins and the B-complex vitamins. Fat-solvent vitamins can be put away for longer timeframes in the body’s greasy tissue and the liver. These incorporate vitamins A, D, E, and K. The body for legitimate working needs both sorts of vitamins.

VITAMIN A-(Carotene, provitamin A, retinol)- Fat-solvent

Strength of the tissues which make up a defensive covering on the outside and within the body, which means the skin and the mucous layers which line the stomach related, respiratory and disposing of frameworks. It is in this manner crucial for sound skin and solid organs that are ensured by the mucous layers, which act to forestall contamination of these organs. Additionally fundamental in giving eyes the capacity to adjust to brilliant and diminish light. For developing youngsters, vitamin An is required for legitimate arrangement of tooth lacquer, bones, and other development forms.

VITAMIN B1-(Thiamine)- Water-dissolvable

Discharging vitality from carbs (sugars and starches), proteins, and fats. Keeps the mind and sensory system working typically. Keeps up stamina and continuance of body and psyche. Keeps stomach related tract working furthermore to keep up a sound hunger.

VITAMIN B2-(Thiamine)-Water-soluble

Utilization of food energy, protein, fats, along with other B vitamins. Carries hydrogen through the system and helps the body use oxygen to get energy from food. Important for healthy skin tissue and eyes.

VITAMIN B3-(Niacin)-Water-soluble

Utilization of carbohydrates, protein, and fat, along with other B vitamins. Keeps nervous tissues, skin tissues, and digestive tract healthy.

VITAMIN B6-(Pyridoxine)-Water-soluble

Metabolism of proteins, so the amount of B6 required by the body depends a lot on the amount of protein consumed. Vitamin B6 is also needed for the absorption for amino acids and the transportation of them to different parts of the body. Plays an important role in releasing energy to the cells in the body; therefore has a direct and important role in the production of red blood cells and the proper functioning of nervous tissue.

VITAMIN B12-(Cobalamin)-Water-Soluble

Formation and functioning of all body cells, because it is needed for the metabolism of all the major nutrients, proteins, fats, and carbohydrates, and also for the metabolism of nucleic acids. Especially important for red blood cell formation in the prevention of pernicious anemia.

VITAMIN C-(Ascorbic acid)-Water-soluble

Formation of collagen in connective tissues, which cements body’s cells together and helps in the repair and healing processes; metabolism of proteins and many amino acids; proper functioning of adrenal glands; important for absorption of iron from the intestine and storage of it in the liver. Also helpful in combating infections since vitamin C in the tissues is depleted when infections occur.

VITAMIN D

Fat-soluble

Enabling the intestines to absorb calcium and phosphorus into the system; therefore vitamin D is connected with good bone and cartilage formation. Because young children’s bones are growing so quickly, vitamin D is especially necessary in preventing rickets, a disease in which the bones become soft due to their inability to absorb the calcium and phosphorus.

VITAMIN E-(Alpha-, beta-, gamma-, delta-tocopherol)-(Fat-soluble)

Preventing oxidation and consequent destruction of vitamin A and red blood cell membranes, and keeps the polyunsaturated fats in the body from going rancid and decomposing. Most research and speculation has gone on about vitamin E but its function in the body is still not clear, although the vitamin has had much PR in false claims given to it.

VITAMIN K-Fat-soluble

Normal clotting of blood.

The following four vitamins are part of the B. vitamin group:

BIOTIN-Water-soluble

Work involved in the metabolism of fat and protein; also required for releasing energy from glucose sugar and for the synthesis of certain amino and other acids.

CHOLINE-(Water-soluble)

Transport and metabolism of fats in the body.

FOLACIN-(Folic Acid)-Water-soluble

Blood cell formation; the metabolism of proteins and nucleic acids (substances formed by each cell for transfer of hereditary characteristics from one generation of cells to another as the body grows).

PANTOTHENIC ACID-Water-soluble

Metabolism of carbohydrates, as well as fats and proteins; involved in the synthesis of cholesterol, steroid hormones and hemoglobin, which is the iron-containing substance in the red blood cells. Found in every cell of living tissues.
