Vitamins vital for health care

Vitamins are one of the essential nutrition requirements.
Experts define vitamins as organic compounds which are required in small amounts for the proper functioning of the human body and which cannot be synthesized by it.
The lacking of or insufficiency of the vitamins can cause debility and diseases.
 The vitamins have diverse forms and functions.
Vitamins are divided into two types, namely, water soluble vitamins and fat soluble vitamins.
The water soluble vitamins are required in our daily intake as any excess is excreted.
The fat soluble vitamins are stored in the body and the excess consumption of them can cause toxicity, specially in the case of vitamin A.
Water soluble vitamins are all the sub groups in Vitamin B complex and vitamin C.
Fat soluble vitamins are vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E and vitamin K.
Vitamins are very essential for skin care, hair care and dental care.
Some vitamins are antioxidants.
The individual vitamins will be discussed in the later posts of this blog.
