“Vitamins are only to be found in living things, like minerals they are an essential building block for our bodies, however high dosages of some vitamins can be harmful. We get our vitamins from both plants and animals. They come in two forms: water-soluble and fat-soluble.
Fat- Soluble vitamins are to be found in animal-derived products as well as fatty foods, such as oily fish, liver, eggs, dairy and vegetable oil. These fat soluble vitamins are stored up in the liver for use when required, to much of these fat soluble vitamins can be harmful.
All fat soluble vitamins must be eaten with fat since it is fat soluble and wont be absorbed without it.
Water-Soluble vitamins are not stored in the body, excess vitamin intake is flushed out when you urinate, so you will need to replenish these more often. The water soluble vitamins can be destroyed by heat and can be lost in the water when cooking. When boiling vegetables containing soluble vitamins it is best to make soups and sauces with the water to gain all of the vitamin content of the vegetables.
Google your favorite foods to see what key vitamins and minerals you are consuming and which you are not.”
