Facts about vitamins

Nutritional supplement information and facts about vitamins that make it easier for you to pick the best daily supplements that your body can use.

You need to know that there are two groups of vitamins.

1. Water Soluble Vitamins …and

2. Fat Soluble Vitamins

Facts about vitamins – water soluble vitamins

Water soluble vitamins are Vitamin C and the B-Complex Vitamins.

These vitamins need to be replaced every day as our body does not store them.

If you do not consume enough water soluble vitamins in your daily diet, then you should be supplementing them.

Water soluble means that they dissolve in water within your body. They then enter the blood stream; the body uses what it needs and the rest is excreted through the urine.

Because your body doesn’t store these vitamins, you need to be sure that you are consuming enough Vitamin C and B-Complex foods.

 Keep in mind that foods that contain these vitamins lose their nutritional value by the storage, preparation and cooking process.

If you don’t get enough water soluble vitamins in your food, then you need to include some Supplements in your daily diet.

Facts about vitamins – fat soluble vitamins

Fat soluble vitamins are Vitamins A, D, E, and K and they are needed to assist in the maintenance of good health.

Unlike the water soluble vitamins these foods do not lose the nutritional value when cooked.

When these vitamins are taken into the body, they are used, right then, as needed and the rest is stored in body tissue for later use.

 Due to various health problems, some people’s bodies do not store fats properly but rather excrete them through the stool.

If your body does not store these vitamins properly or your diet lacks sufficient fat soluble vitamins, then to guard you health, you should be including supplements in your diet every day.

More facts on vitamins

Should we depend on our daily foods to supply enough water soluble and fat soluble vitamins?

In an ideal situation where your daily balanced diet consisted of fresh organic fruits and vegetables that have been grown in nutrient rich soil and you include some unprocessed, untreated meat products and fresh, uncontaminated fish …and you are already in good health, then the answer is YES.

Otherwise you should include some vitamin supplementation to supply your bodies needs.

Hi! My name is Nick and I’m 56 yrs. old and this is part of my story. Let me tell you, I was like a lot of people out there and I had no idea that skin cancer was anything bad. I had Basal cell back in 2007, but that was no big deal and it was removed and that was the end of that. No one told me that it was a type of skin cancer (I looked it up on my computer). But still no big deal, it would not kill me.
But I did know the word "Melanoma"....." --by Nick

Bottom Line
The Weather Channel has done well posting this information and photos to help you spot skin cancer, including melanoma.
It can be hard to spot, even for a professional.
The bottom line is to get an expert's opinion about any suspicious mole or lesion on your skin. If necessary, get a second opinion  and/or request a biopsy. it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Don’t put your very life at risk!
