Vitamins and minerals for an energetic and healthy you

First of all, we make a distinction between water-soluble and fat-soluble vitamins. Water-soluble vitamins are found in fluid contained in food. They enter the bloodstream directly. Water-soluble vitamins circulate in parts of the body that are filled with water (tissue fluid). You don’t store them. One exception is vitamin B6. This vitamin is stored in the muscles. You just pee out the excess of the other water-soluble vitamins. This is why it is so important to supplement these vitamins every day.

Fat-soluble vitamins are mainly found in dietary fats. Via the lymphatic system they eventually end up in the bloodstream. These vitamins are stored in fatty tissue and the liver. The surplus of fat-soluble vitamins is not easily lost by the body. That is why it is better not to take in too much of them. An overdose can even be harmful.

Prevent a vitamin and mineral deficiency

Many people do not get enough vitamins and minerals. The risk of a vitamin and mineral deficiency is even greater if you have had weight loss surgery. You only notice a shortage when you don’t get these important nutrients (anymore). Some deficiencies are difficult to correct, such as an iron deficiency. With a daily multivitamin you can make up for most deficiencies and prevent problems.
