Vitamins – Deficiency & Excess

Vitamins juices

Last Updated February 21st, 2019

Overview

Vitamins are essential ingredients for a healthy life. Deficiency of these elements can lead to numerous diseases within the human body which are at times incurable. Excess quantity of vitamins also proves to be detrimental, but complications associated with them can be controlled through the reduced intake. At present, the low and middle-income countries, as well as the developing or underdeveloped countries of the world, are suffering from vitamin deficiency. A large percentage of the population in those countries suffer from malnutrition, which is directly impacting the life expectancy. According to the recent epidemiological studies by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP), about 12.9% of the current global population is malnourished.

 

What are vitamins?

Vitamins foodsVitamins are a category of organic nutrients (medically termed as micronutrients) which are necessary for a healthy life. These vitamins need to be present in adequate quantities in the regular diet because the human body is incapable of synthesizing them naturally. They play a vital role in metabolism and growth.

All total there are 13 different types of vitamins and each of them has important roles in the growth and development of the body. Proper intake of all these vitamins is necessary especially in the growing years of a child, to ensure healthy development and proper build up of immunity. It is to be noted that all the 13 vitamins cannot be obtained from a single source of food. Hence the daily diet should consist of different types of foods, each having a definite value (in terms of vitamins and essential nutrients).

According to statistics of the World Health Organization, in industrialized countries, the daily food intake by an average adult is about 600 g (dry-weight basis), of which vitamins constitute about less than 1 g.

 

Different types of vitamins

Vitamins are divided into two main classes according to their medium of solubility. These are as follows-

Fat-soluble vitamins: Fat-soluble vitamins are those vitamins which are primarily dissolved in fat before they are carried by the circulating blood to different organs of the body. Surplus quantities of fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the liver and fat tissues and utilized by the body whenever needed. There are four fat-soluble vitamins namely- Vitamins A, D, E and K.

 Characteristics of fat-soluble vitamins

 Following are the unique characteristics-

  • Storage: These vitamins are stored in liver and fat tissues and utilized whenever necessary.
  • Longevity: They last for a long time since the body does not need them on a daily basis.
  • Absorption and excretion: They are absorbed along with dietary fat through the small intestine and excreted at a slow rate.
  • Toxicity: Fat soluble vitamins stored within the body for a prolonged period can cause toxicity.

 

Water-soluble vitamins: Water-soluble vitamins are necessary on a regular basis via a balanced diet. They dissolve easily in water and are carried to the body tissues which perform several essential functions. The main water-soluble vitamins are- Vitamin B complex group and Vitamin C. 

Characteristics of water-soluble vitamins

 Following are the unique characteristics-

  • Storage: These vitamins are not stored in the body for a long time.
  • Longevity: They do not last for a long period within the body tissues and are easily excreted on a regular basis.
  • Toxicity: Since these vitamins do not stay within the body for a very long period, hence the chances of toxicity are nil.

 

Different sources of vitamins

Vitamins of any category are consumed via daily diet (preferably a balanced diet). There are two primary sources of vitamins – plant source and animal source. The different sources of all varieties of vitamins are discussed below-

  • Vitamin A: Fruits (green or ripened), green leafy vegetables (contain beta carotene and carotenoids), dairy products, cereals, fish oil, liver
  • Vitamin D: Egg yolk, organ meat, fortified milk, fish (cod liver oil), sunlight
  • Vitamin E: Whole wheat, cereals, egg yolk, nuts, avocado, peanut butter
  • Vitamin K: Soybeans, broccoli, spinach, sprouts, turnip
  • Vitamin B1: Yeast, whole grains, wheat germ, organ meat, pork, dried beans, seeds
  • Vitamin B2: Dairy products, green leafy vegetables, organ meat, nuts, whole grain, mushrooms, poultry
  • Vitamin B3: Fish, poultry, whole grains, peanut butter, mushrooms
  • Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid): Beef, corn, meat, orange juice
  • Vitamin B6: Yeast, poultry, wheat germ, whole grains, meat, potato, banana, beans
  • Vitamin B12: Fish, poultry, liver, meat, dairy products (cheese, yogurt)
  • Vitamin C: Citrus fruits (lemon, orange), green leafy vegetables, green pepper, black currant, tomato, cooked egg, non-fat yogurt, low-fat milk

How to manage and prevent nutritional deficiencies?

  • Vitamins juicesA majority of the population is deficient in vitamin D. The daily requirement of vitamin D is 2000 IU. Vitamin D2 comes from plants while D3 comes from animal products. D3 is also produced in our bodies when we expose ourselves to sunlight. Thus a balanced diet rich in fish, eggs, liver, and milk can help prevent vitamin D deficiency.
  • Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, kale, cabbage, bok choy, and cauliflower are rich in essential nutrients and also help your body Detox.
  • It is important to address the major reasons behind nutritional deficiencies among low and middle-income countries. These mainly include – maternal nutritional anemia, protein-energy malnutrition, lactation failure, and vitamin A deficiency.
  • Include healthier eating habits – consume whole grains instead of refined, fruits in place of sweet desserts, and water in place of artificially sweetened beverages.

 

Facts

  • Altogether 40 vitamins and minerals are required by the human body to sustain a healthy living. These need to come from the diet as the body cannot synthesize these as required by the body.
  • In case you consume excess of water-soluble vitamins (vitamin B & C), they will be excreted through your urine.

Facts

  • Vitamins and minerals are not the only nutrients required by the body. Amino acids and essential fatty acids are also counted as nutrients.
  • The term “vitamins” has been derived from the words “vital” (because of their importance) and “amines” (since they were previously thought to be amines).

Facts

  • There are all total 13 vitamins – 4 fat-soluble ( A, D,E,& K) and 9 water-soluble ( Vitamin C and 8 types of Vitamin B).
  • If you accidentally cut yourself or suffer a wound, vitamin K will ensure that you form clots and don’t bleed excessively and vitamin C will try to heal it as soon as possible.

Dos and Don'ts

Dos
  • Remember that in order to absorb any form of calcium you need vitamin D as well. This can be obtained from diet and natural sunlight.
  • Women should try to maintain a healthy level of iron in their bodies since they experience regular blood loss during menstrual cycles.
  • Note that Vitamin A, D, E, & K (fat –soluble) will only be absorbed in the body if these are taken with food that has a little fat content.

Don'ts
  • Consume prenatal vitamins if you are not pregnant or trying to conceive. Many women take such supplements for hair growth. But such a condition might lead to abnormally high iron levels.
  • Assume that just because you are taking vitamin supplements you can skip healthy foods. As the name suggests, these pills need to be supplemented along with food.
  • Consider that vitamin pills will compensate for heavy drinking, smoking, or eating unhealthy food.
