  • The ABCs of Vitamins | HealthiNation


I'm Lynn Goldstein, a Registered Dietitian. Sometimes “13” is a lucky number, That s because there are 13 vitamins that are essential to your health: Vitamins A, C, D, E, K and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate). Your body uses all of these for a range of metabolic processes, from digestion to proper nerve function. There are two types: water-soluble and fat-soluble. Water-soluble vitamins dissolve in water and then are easily absorbed by the gut. The body uses what it needs and then the kidneys flush out the excess. This is why you need a constant supply of these vitamins from your diet. Fat-soluble vitamins are retained in the body and therefore can be used later, and so don't need constant replenishing. This is because fat-soluble vitamins are easily stored in the liver and fatty tissues. If you eat a nutritious, well-balanced diet, you normally can get all the vitamins you need. Your body can also make two of the, Vitamins D and K. If someone isn't able to get enough of a certain vitamin from food, a dietary supplement or multivitamin might be recommended. Vegetarians, for example, often need to take extra B12. There are also certain groups with increased nutritional needs. For example, women with heavy periods need more iron. Women who are pregnant or are trying to get pregnant also benefit from taking folic acid and other prenatal vitamins. For a long time, vitamin deficiency diseases, like scurvy and rickets, were common. Then when nutritious food became more plentiful, research shifted to investigating whether large quantities of vitamins might be able to fend off certain diseases. But just because someone gets a definitive disease due to a serious lack of a particular vitamin doesn't mean that consuming more than the Recommended Daily Allowance can prevent a range of diseases. Remember when megadoses of Vitamin C were thought to be a cure-all for everything from colds to cancer? Then Vitamin E was in the spotlight because of a possible link to Alzheimer's and heart disease. Even the B's had their moment of fame. And now it's D. But follow-up studies haven't shown any conclusive preventive benefit to megadosing. And in some cases, taking too much can be harmful. But that shouldn't be so surprising. Our bodies are complex, and so it makes sense that the nutrients needed interact in really complicated ways. We also now understand that just because someone swallows a vitamin pill, that doesn't mean it's bioavailable, meaning it's in a form our body can easily use. Real foods have many components, and it's both the combination of various foods and of the components within them that helps our bodies absorb what we need in the quantities we need. And when you eat whole foods, you get a lot of other essentials, too. An orange, for example, provides not only vitamin C, but also beta carotene, calcium, fiber and other nutrients. A vitamin C supplement is missing all this other really important stuff. As a Registered Dietitian, I know that the best way to get the optimal amount of bioavailable nutrients, including the 13 vitamins we need, is not to gorge on vitamin supplements but rather to eat real, whole foods that are high in nutrients and low in calories.
