A vitamin is an organic compound that organisms need as nutrients in small amounts. Vitamins are obtained from the diet because the body is unable to synthesize them by itself. Not all the organisms need all the vitamins and there are some of them that are only used in certain situations. The term vitamin does not include other essential nutrients such as minerals, essential fatty acids and many other nutrients that are health promoters but are needed in a lesser amount.
Vitamins can be water-soluble or liposoluble. In humans we can find 13 types of vitamins, 4 liposoluble (A, D, E i K) and 9 water soluble (8 B vitamins and vitamin C).
Water-soluble readily dissolve in water, are not stored in the body and are eliminated from the body through urine, so that should normally consume. Liposoluble are absorbed through the intestinal tract with the aid of lipids (fats), and are stored primarily in the liver, which can be consumed at a lower frequency. By concentrating in the body there is a risk to occur hypervitaminosis.
The Vegan Society of the United Kingdom, the Vegetarian Resource Group and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, among others, strongly recommend vegans (vegan), that consume foods fortified with B12 or take an vitamin supplement, daily or weekly, to cover the recommended intake (Wikipedia)
Eating a healthy diet that includes 5 servings of raw vegetables or fruit the required daily amount of vitamins is provided, and avoid developing a vitamin deficiency. This deficit can be primary or secondary. The primary is when the body can not get the recommended daily allowance of vitamins and the secondary is when a disorder due to a factor due to lifestyle prevents or limits the use or absorption of the vitamin. It may be due to the habit of smoking, alcohol, excessive medications or miracle diets that limit or prohibit the consumption of some foods.
