An In-Depth Examination of Vitamins and Their Role in Bodily Function

Meeting the daily recommended intake of vitamins and minerals through diet alone can be tough, leading many to turn to supplements. In fact, 58% of adults take a multivitamin, and approximately 75% of Americans use dietary supplements. However, it’s crucial to be mindful of the potential for vitamin overdose.

Vitamins are divided into two categories: fat-soluble and water-soluble. Water-soluble vitamins are used by the body as needed, with any excess typically excreted, making toxicity less likely. In contrast, fat-soluble vitamins — specifically A, D, E, and K — are stored in fat and the liver, which can lead to toxicity if consumed in large quantities.

It’s recommended to consult with a healthcare provider before starting or adjusting any supplement regimen to ensure the doses are safe and beneficial. The infographic “Are Vitamin Supplements Safe?” provides a detailed overview of the careful use of vitamin supplements.
