Water & Fat Vitamins

Fat soluble vitamins are soluble in lipids (fats). These vitamins are usually absorbed in fat globules that travel through the lymphatic system of the small intestines and into the general blood circulation within the body. Fat-soluble vitamins include Vitamins A, E, D, and K. They dissolve in fat but not water and typically require protein carriers for transport through the body. They are primarily stored in the cells associated with fat and the liver. Because these vitamins are stored for longer periods of time.

There is a difference between the vitamins that are naturally water soluble: vitamins B and C and the "water solubilized" form of a vitamin (such as vitamin E) that is naturally a fat soluble vitamin. This form of vitamin E is "water solubilized" by the addition of certain compounds during a specific manufacturing process. It is hypothesized that this "water solubilized form" of vitamin E is more efficiently absorbed through the intestinal wall into the body.

water-soluble vitamins absorb directly into our blood and circulate freely into the water-filled compartments of the body. Water-soluble vitamins have many tasks in the body. They are involved in energy production, they help cells multiply and they make collagen, which knits together wounds, supports blood vessel walls and forms a base for teeth and bones.
