Water-Soluble vs Fat-Soluble Vitamins
There are 13 indispensible vitamins your body needs and they are split up into water- or fat-soluble vitamins.
Water-soluble vitamins arenít stored in the body when consumed. They travel through the bloodstream and whatever is not used is urinated out. This means that they need to be replenished because they donít stay in the body for long. These are vitamin C and all the vitamin Bs.
On the other hand, fat-soluble vitamins, consisting of vitamin A, D, E and K, store inside the fat tissues in your body and liver from a few days to 6 months until the body needs them.
