Classification of vitamins -- A better understanding of vitamins can lead to better supplements

Vitamins, trace elements in our daily lives, are cleverly divided into water-soluble and fat-soluble categories according to their solubility properties.

1. Water-soluble vitamins refer to a type of vitamins that dissolve in water and can be absorbed and utilized by the body.
This type of vitamin will be excreted from the body in a relatively short period of time, so it needs to be continuously taken through daily diet to maintain normal physiological functions of the body. Water-soluble vitamins include vitamin C and vitamin B complex (B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B7, B9, B12).
Food sources rich in water-soluble vitamins include a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, meat, etc. Therefore, maintaining a balanced diet is crucial to getting enough water-soluble vitamins.

2. Fat-soluble vitamins refer to a type of vitamins that can be dissolved in fats and oils. This type of vitamin can be stored in the body for a relatively long period of time, so it does not need to be taken in through diet every day, but it does need to be obtained regularly in appropriate amounts. The main fat-soluble vitamins include vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin K.
Intake of vitamins A, D, E, and K usually comes from a balanced diet, and excessive vitamin supplements may cause adverse effects. Therefore, when supplementing with fat-soluble vitamins, it is recommended to follow doctor or professional medical advice to ensure that the intake is within a safe and appropriate range.

Each of these two types of vitamins has its own "specialties" and forms the cornerstone of our health. In every colorful mouthful of food, there is a vitamin that silently supports our bodies.
