There are only two (and a half) of the essential vitamins our bodies need that can be absorbed through the water, all the rest require fat to break them down.
The water soluble vitamins are the Bs, C, and A but only in the Beta-Carotene form.
The great thing about water soluble vitamins is that it takes a very short time to get the nutrients into our system. Almost immediately after intaking B, C or A (Beta-Carotene), it is sucked right into the body.
Even better, you can’t overdose on water soluble vitamins. While they get carried around the body to our organs and tissues, they are not stored there so any excess B, C, or A (Beta-Carotene) gets flushed out of the body along with any extra water.
What are the benefits these vitamins can provide our bodies?
A is good for enhancing vision, immunity, bone development, and producing new cells.
B1 (Thiamin HCL) is good for converting food into usable energy, as well as maintaining heart and nervous system function.
B2 (Riboflavin) is used in yellow food colorings and is essential in the creation of red blood cells.
