Operation's Introduction

You have a percentage of people who wake up every morning and try to be the healthiest human being as possible. These people get up, work out. Watch the bad foods and still leave out important nutrients that your body needs to function at its best. There are two types of vitamins they are separated by the material in which they dissolve. The first of these are the Fat soluble vitamins which are vitamin A, D, E, and K. These vitamins dissolve in fat before they are absorbed in the blood stream to carry out their functions. Excesses of these vitamins are stored in the liver. Because they are stored, they are not needed every day in the diet. The second type is called the water soluble vitamins. These vitamins dissolve in water and are not stored; they are eliminated in urine. Because they are not stored we need a continuous supply of these vitamins because our system is always disposing them as waste in our urine. The water-soluble vitamins are the B-complex group and vitamin C. Water-soluble vitamins are easily destroyed or washed out during food storage or preparation. Of these water soluble vitamins, eight are known as the B-complex group which consist of thiamin (vitamin B1), riboflavin (vitamin B2), niacin, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin B12, biotin and pantothenic acid. These vitamins are widely distributed in foods but as soon as we start to cook our foods many of our nutrients that we seek from the foods diminish and their influence is felt in many parts of the body. They function as coenzymes that help the body obtain energy from food. They also are important for normal appetite, good vision, healthy skin, healthy nervous system and red blood cell formation.
