Everybody knows that a balanced diet can provide minerals/multivitamins supplement. Minerals in your food are derived from minerals in the soil, but if the soil is depleted, there is little or no soil in the minerals. Vitamins are formed naturally in plants, but no food contains all the necessary vitamins on a daily basis. Everyone must take additional measures to fill gaps, improve health and vitality. However, not all additives are created equal, and many forms of minerals and vitamins cannot be absorbed. Let’s start with their basic vitamins and roles in human health.

Vitamins are classified into one of two groups that are soluble in fat or soluble in water, and the group that contains the vitamin is determined by how the vitamin is absorbed. Like any absorbed vitamin is complex, but can be simple. If absorbed directly through the lumen of the intestine into the bloodstream, the vitamin is classified as soluble in water. When absorbed together with dietary fat and transferred to the liver before entering the blood, the vitamin is considered fat-soluble.

Fat-soluble vitamins can only enter the bloodstream through the lymphatic system. Vitamins are responsible for the production and regulation of hormones, cellular functions and the overall homeostasis of the body. Each vitamin plays a vital role in the body, and if there is no vitamin, a person can get sick and even die.

Water-soluble vitamins are much more than their fat-soluble counterparts and include a lot of vitamin C and vitamin B. Many water-soluble vitamins are heat sensitive and can be destroyed by cooking or processing, so consuming fortified or raw food is important to get enough of these vitamins.

There are four vitamins that are considered fat-soluble; Vitamin A, D, E, K. Vitamin A has a number of different forms, and compounds are known as retinoid. Retinyl ether is a form that is found in foods that are also stored in the liver. Foods rich in ethereal retinil include fish, meat, milk, egg yolks. In plant food sources, compounds called carotenoids provide retinyl ethers. Carotenoids can be found in orange and yellow fruits and vegetables, dark green vegetables and tomatoes. After absorption in the body, vitamin A is used for several functions.

The retina is the form of vitamin A responsible for vision, and the ability to correct changes in brightness. Retinoic acid is a form of vitamin A, responsible for reproduction, growth, immune function and cell health. The lack of vitamin A can lead to a condition called night blindness, where vision is slowly restored after a flash of bright light.

Night blindness is an early indicator of deficiency, and a permanent defect can lead to a complete loss of vision. Since vitamin A is stored for a long time in the body, toxicity can be caused by too much consumption of this vitamin. Excess can cause headaches, vomiting, liver damage, bleeding and even coma. Vitamin A is also teratogenic, causing birth defects if they are too high in pregnant women. The recommended daily intake of vitamin A is 600mg per day for adults, 700mg for pregnant women.

Many vitamins are necessary for a number of functions in the human body. Minerals also have many functions, and many vitamins rely on minerals to perform cellular functions.
