The ways to intake vitamin properly

Why we should intake vitamins?

Vitamins are essential to life. They contribute to good health by regulating the metabolism and assisting the biochemical processes that release energy from digested food. They are considered micronutrients because the body needs them in relatively small amounts compared with nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, fats and water.

Enzymes are essential chemicals that are the foundation of human bodily functions. They are catalysts in the chemical reactions that are continually taking place within the body. As coenzymes, vitamins work with enzymes, thereby allowing all the activities that occur within the body to be carried out as they should be. Whole, Fresh raw foods are a good source of enzymes.


Types of Vitamin

Of the major vitamins, some are soluble in water and others in oil. Water-soluble vitamins must be taken into the body daily, as they cannot be stored and are excreted within four hours to one day. Theses include vitamin C and the B-complex vitamins. Oil-soluble vitamins can be stored for longer periods of time in the body’s fatty tissue and the liver. These include vitamin A, D, E and K. Both types of vitamin are needed by the body for proper functioning.

Oli-soluble vitamins should be taken before meals, and water-soluble ones should be takin after meals.
