Vitamins News

Vitamins are organic compounds that are essential for normal growth and metabolism in living organisms. Typically, the body cannot synthesize sufficient amounts of vitamins on its own, so they must be obtained through the diet. Vitamins are categorized into two types: fat-soluble and water-soluble. Fat-soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) can be stored in the body’s fatty tissues and liver, and are used as needed. Water-soluble vitamins (such as B vitamins and vitamin C) must be replenished regularly as they are not stored in the body and are excreted in urine.
