Vitamins 101

Updated: Feb 25

The Ingredients That Work Together To Make It Happen


What are vitamins?

Vitamins are organic compounds which the body needs to function normally. Needed in small amounts, there are 13 known vitamins which can be classified as fat or water soluble. Fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, and K) are easier for the human body to store than water soluble vitamins (C and the group of B-complex). Fat soluble vitamins get stored in the liver therefore regular consumption may not be required, whereas water soluble vitamins need to be consumed regularly as they cannot be stored in the body.

What do they do for me?

Each vitamin serves its own distinct purpose in the human body, supporting essential bodily functions, health and normal growth.

What foods can I get vitamins from?

Vitamins are present in animal and plant based foods. Whilst many foods can be a source of multiple vitamins, certain foods are rich in certain types of vitamins.
