This month is also a special month as we know it is Women History Month, so this month make sure you celebrate every woman, lady and girl around you in a special way this month.
This month we are going to be getting to know and understand our vitamins. Firstly the question is what are vitamins? Vitamins are a group of substances that are needed for normal cell function, growth, and development. There are 13 essential vitamins, this means that vitamins are required for the body to work properly. These vitamins are;
- Vitamin A
- Vitamin C
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin E
- Vitamin K
- Vitamin B1 (thiamine)
- Vitamin B2 (riboflavin)
- Vitamin B3 (niacin)
- Pantothenic acid (B5)
- Biotin (B7)
- Vitamin B6
- Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin)
- Folate (folic acid and B9)
Fascinating isn’t! However, these vitamins are grouped into two categories, the FAT-SOLUBLE VITAMINS and the WATER- SOLUBLE VITAMINS
Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the body’s fatty tissue. Furthermore, These four vitamins in this category are Vitamins A, D, E, and K. These vitamins are more easily mop up by the body in the presence of dietary fat.
The other nine vitamins are water-soluble vitamins. They are not reserve in the body. Any leftover water-soluble vitamins leave the body through the urine. Although the body keeps a small reserve of these vitamins, they need to take them on a regular basis to prevent a shortage in the body. Vitamin B12 is the only water-soluble vitamin that can be reserve in the liver for many years.
If you ask, I would say this is getting fascinating, and I am sure you want to know more about these vitamins, like what foods and fruits have them? How regularly should they be taken? And finally, what are their individual and combined benefits?
Well people you don’t have to worry about all these questions will get their answers with even extra juicy fun fact, in addition, do you know that there some vitamin-like factors that the body needs, I know right! There are Choline and Carnitine.
Carnitine is essential for fatty acid translocation it aids muscle function, and some studies have shown that carnitine supplementation improves exercise performance. Meanwhile, Choline is a lipotropic agent that prevents the deposition of fat in the liver.
Wow! Just wow! This is interesting, however, we will be drawing for today here and continue next time, but always remember that we at secure health are just a click away.
