Vitamins, how do they work?

A, C, E, D, B, K. These are vitamins, and just as letters build words, so too are the building blocks of the body.

vitamins, what do they do? and their functions

Vitamins are organic compounds that we need to ingest in small amounts to keep working.

They are the builders, advocates, and maintainers of the body, helping it build muscle and bone, use nutrients, capture and use energy, and heal wounds.

If you need to convince of the value of the vitamin, just think of the plight of sailors of the past, who did not have access to fresh products rich in vitamins. They became scurvy.

Either way, nutrient C, abundant in soil products, was the simple cure for this disease.

While bacteria, fungi, and plants produce their vitamins, our bodies cannot, so we have to get them from other sources.

So how does the body get vitamins from here?

It depends on what form these compounds take. There are two types of vitamins:
Fat soluble and water soluble, and the difference between them determines how the body transports and stores vitamins and eliminates excess.

Water soluble vitamins are vitamin C and B complex vitamins that are made up of eight different types that each does something unique. These are dissolved in the watery parts of fruits, vegetables and grains, which means that their passage through the body is relatively straightforward. Once inside the system, these foods are digested and the vitamins they contain are absorbed directly into the bloodstream. Because blood plasma is water based.
The water soluble vitamins C and B have their transport cut off for them and can move freely around the body.

For fat soluble vitamins, dissolved in fat and found in foods like newspaper, butter, and oils, this blood trip is a bit more adventurous.
These vitamins pass through the stomach and intestines, where an acidic substance called bile drains from the liver, breaking down fat and preparing it for absorption through the intestinal wall.
Because fat-soluble vitamins cannot use the watery nature of the blood, they need something else to move them, which comes from proteins that attach to vitamins and act as messengers, carrying soluble fat in the blood. and around the body.

So this difference between water soluble and fat soluble vitamins determines how they get into the blood.

 how are they stored or released from the body?

The system's ability to move water-soluble vitamins through the blood so easily means that most of them can be cleared through the kidneys just as easily. For this reason, most water soluble vitamins need to be 

replenished daily from the foods we eat.
But fat-soluble vitamins hold up because they can be packaged in the liver and fat cells.

How Vitamins Work

The body treats these parts like a pantry, stores vitamins and rations in them as needed, which means that we should not overload this type of vitamin as the body is usually well supplied.
 Once we understand the logistics of transportation and storage, vitamins need to do the job they came here for in the first place.
Some, like most B complex vitamins, are coenzymes, the job of which is to help enzymes release energy from food.
Other B vitamins then help the body to use this energy.
From nutrient C, you gain the ability to fight contamination and build collagen, a kind of tissue that structures bones and teeth and repairs wounds.
Vitamin A helps make white blood cells, which are essential for the body's defense, helps shape bones, and improves vision by keeping eye cells under control.
Vitamin D collects calcium and phosphorus so that we can build bones.
And vitamin E acts as an antioxidant, removing elements from the body that can damage cells.

Finally, from vitamin K, we mark the ability to clot the blood because it makes it possible to manufacture the proteins that do this work.

 Without this variety of vitamins, humans face deficiencies that cause a range of problems, such as fatigue, nerve damage, heart disease, or illnesses like rickets and scurvy.
On the other hand, too many vitamins can lead to toxicity in the body, so there is the myth that taking supplements is a great idea.
In reality, it's all about finding the right balance and getting the most out of vitamins.
