The 6 Nutrients
By : Sarah Bono
Vitamins & Minerals
Vitamins - fat soluble and water soluble. Fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. These vitamins tend to remain in the body longer than water soluble vitamins meaning that if you have too much, you may potentially have a dangerous condition. Water soluble vitamins are vitamins B and C. Water soluble vitamins do their jobs just as the other vitamins but they just go through your body quicker.
Minerals - you need 16 each day. Calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, sodium, chloride, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, manganese, iodine, selenium, molybdenum, chromium, and fluoride.
