Identify two groups of vitamins: water-and fat-soluble.
Grouping them explain their specific properties – how they are transported and stored in the body.
Fat-soluble vitamins dissolve in fat but not in water, here comes the name of the group.
They are transported in the body by the blood lipid compounds. Stored in fatty tissues in the body and liver and therefore does not need to be taken daily.
Fat-soluble vitamins are A, D, E and K.
Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water.
This determines their rapid excretion from the body through urine (they can be stored in the body in significant quantities) and the need for their continued mobilization.
Water-soluble vitamins are all the B vitamins – B1, B2, B3 (PP), B5, B6, B9, B12, and vitamin C. H
