Vitamins Intake with Water: Do we really need vitamins?

| 2

Fat soluble vitamins differ from the water soluble in that they are absorbed, together with fat from the intestine, into the body's circulation. So, any disease or disorder that affects the absorption of fat, such as coeliac disease, could lead to a deficiency of these vitamins. Once absorbed into the circulation these vitamins are carried to the liver where they are stored. Fat soluble vitamins include A, D, E and K, with vitamins A, D and K stored in the liver and vitamin E is distributed throughout the body's fatty tissues. Sometimes these vitamins can build up to toxic levels, but they can be removed by antibiotics. Fat soluble vitamins are best taken with food.

For those who eat healthy diets with vitamin-filled foods as well as take vitamins in the form of pills, they could be at risk of overdose. There can be too much of a good thing when it comes to vitamins. Vitamins, especially pyridoxine (B6) should be taken with eight glasses of water each day. Too many of certain B vitamins can cause liver damage.

Vitamins should traditionally be taken with a full glass of water. It is also noted that multivitamins also be taken with a glass of water. However, some new products allow you to literally take vitamins with water. SoBe, a hip beverage maker, has launched a new vitamin water line called SoBe Life Water. The beverage, which comes in five flavors, contains vitamins C, E and several of the B family. There are also many of health food and drink companies who have been making vitamin water for years.

Whether you get the essential vitamins you need daily through a healthy diet, or through taking daily doses of a vitamin, making sure you have all the right amounts of those letters A, B, C, D, E and K are sure to keep your body healthy and happy. Add plenty of water to the mix, and the vitamins will get to the right place.
