Fat-soluble Vs. water soluble vitamins.

Posted by Swati S.

There are two types of vitamins: fat-soluble and water-soluble. The body can easily flush out water-soluble vitamins, but fat-soluble vitamins are more difficult, and tend to get stored in the fat deposits of the body. And if fat-soluble vitamins, like vitamin K, D, E or A are build up in the body in a large amount, they may turn toxic. High amounts of fat-soluble vitamin in the body create different problems. They can cause something called inter-cranial pressure, which essentially means a high blood pressure in the brain. Some people have reported headaches and problems related to eyesight because of a build up of fat-soluble vitamins. So be extra careful when going for vitamins and I also feel it's a good idea to consult a doctor before putting anything in your body over a long period.

I sure would like to know the source on this piece. Vitamins are essential for the body to function. Reading this alarming report, makes me really want to know the source and the source's intentions. We do have to stay informed but this is a little general when you say "some people." Don't you think?
