Fat-Soluble Vitamins: How To Use Them For Your Benefit

Vitamins A, D, E, and K are four fat-soluble vitamins required to maintain good health.

Each vitamin has its distinct metabolism and distinct mechanism of action.

Vitamins are organic substances that classify as either fat-soluble or water-soluble vitamins.

Stored In Your Body

Fat-soluble vitamins can store in tissue 🗗. Meaning that fat-soluble vitamins are retained by the body for a longer time than water-soluble vitamins.

Because fat-soluble vitamins are stored in your body longer, are more likely to cause toxicity 🗗. The body cannot excrete them quickly enough. In general, a healthy diet will not cause toxicity, but taking supplements at high levels may create an imbalance of vitamins and cause illness.

Throughout The Life Cycle

Fat-soluble vitamins, including vitamins A and E, are essential nutrients throughout the life cycle. For instance, maternal vitamin A deficiency increases the risk of complications during pregnancy and in the postpartum period.

Fat-soluble vitamins play vital roles 🗗 in vision, bone health, immune function, and coagulation.
