Vita Vita Vitamins - Life amine!

I will make a rough text about the vitamins we have and a brief explanation about them.

  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin B
  • Vitamin B12
  • Vitamin C
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K
By making a list, we can seperate the Fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins like this.

  • Vitamin B
    Vitamin C
  • Vitamin A
  • Vitamin D
  • Vitamin E
  • Vitamin K
Their roles:
  • Vitamin A's purpose is to:
    Give us better sight.
    Normal growth and bone formation.
    Smooth skin and mucous membranes.
    Hormone formation.
    Resistance to infections and cancer.
  • Vitamin B is important where food turns into energy, vitamin b also got b1 - b9 and b12 as subclasses. but i won't go so much into detail about them as i only have heard about b9 - b12. Good sources of vitamin B are animal products such as fish, eggs, cheese, kidneys, liver, milk and beef, and yeast, coarse cereals, nuts, fruits and vegetables.
  • Vitamin C is important in the construction and maintenance of the body's connective tissue. The vitamin is also needed to regulate the body's absorption of iron. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant, which together with vitamin E helps to neutralize attacks against the body that can damage cells, proteins and genetic material. You can find Vitamin C most recommended in Potatoes, paprika and oranges.
  • Vitamin D The main task of vitamin D is to ensure that sufficient calcium is taken up in the intestine, and that you always have enough calcium and phosphate in the blood. This is important because it is these two minerals that make your bones strong and hard. (yes i did use google translate here).
    You can get hold of Vitamin D by simply eating fat fish or Fish liver oil or if you are lucky enough to live where the sun always shine, you are able to produce this vitamin yourself by simply letting your skin touch sunlight.
  • Vitamin E is an antioxidant, which probably acts by stabilizing cell unsaturated lipids against oxidation and to maintain certain Fe-Se-groups decreased. You can find vitamin E in eggs, margarine, butter, and fish.
  • Vitamin K, the letter K stands for the coagulation (blood drying). Vitamin K is involved in coagulation of blood and K2 involves in uptake of Vitamin D
    You can find good resources of vitamin K from g
    reen plants such as lettuce, broccoli and spinach contain a lot of vitamin K. Other sources are dairy products, cereals, meat, fruit and chocolate. Vitamin K2 in fermented cheese and natto, a Japanese right made of fermented soy beans.
Well, that is about what i have got about vitamins in food.
I hope you find this helpfull.
