Fat And Water Soluble Vitamins

Is it possible to get too much of a vitamin?

Hi Everyone!

Did you know that there are two types of vitamins?

Your body needs both fat and water soluble vitamins. The simple, but key difference is that one can be stored in your tissues and the other can be eliminated through your urine.

Vitamins A, D, E, and K are all fat soluble. They travel through your lymphatic system and small intestine. These vitamins need fat in order to be absorbed properly, and can be stored in your body tissues.

These vitamins help your eyes adjust to light, moisten the sinuses, build proteins, and clot blood. They also play an important role in bone development, reproduction, cell division, gene expression, and regulating the immune system.

Your B’s and C vitamins are water soluble. You get them through fruits, veggies, and grains. These vitamins are more fragile and can be damaged by heat or exposure to air. Your body doesn’t hold on to these vitamins like it does with the fat soluble ones so you need a continuous supply to maintain your body’s stores.

It’s important to know the difference between these two, as it’s actually possible to get too much of your vitamins, a condition known as hypervitaminosis. 

It’s more likely to happen with the fat soluble vitamins A, D, E or K as these vitamins are stored in your tissues. This is pretty rare, however, as most people need more vitamins, not less.

That’s why we’ve designed our vitamin patches to be supplementary. Most vitamin companies add in 200-300% of your recommended daily value to their products. But with the Vitamin Patch Club, you get a healthy boost that’s enough to get you feeling good, but not to put you in danger of getting too much.

We’ve designed our B12+, Biotin, and D3 to give you the correct dosage, so you don’t have to think about it!
