Put simply, a vitamin is both:
• An organic compound (contains carbon).
• An essential nutrient that the body cannot produce enough of on its own, so it has to get it from food.
There are fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins.
Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the fat tissues of our bodies, as well as the liver. Fat-soluble vitamins are easier to store than water-soluble ones, and can stay in the body as reserves for days, some of them for months. Vitamins A,D,E and K are fat soluble.
Water-soluble vitamins do not get stored in the body for long - they soon get expelled through urine and need to be replaced more often than fat-soluble ones. Vitamins C and all the B vitamins are water-soluble.
There are currently 13 recognised vitamins but we currently use only vitamins A, C and E in our products.
