Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the liver and the fatty tissues in our bodies. There are four fat-soluble vitamins: A, D, E and K, all of which are need for optimal health.

Types of Vitamins

There are a total of eight water soluble vitamins. These include Vitamin C and the Vitamin B-complex group: thiamine (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin (vitamin B3), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), folate (folic acid), vitamin B12, biotin and pantothenic acid. Water soluble vitamins are not retained by the body like the fat soluble vitamins are therefore we need to replenish our levels of these vitamins on a regular basis.
