Fat-Soluble Vitamins, Explained

Mostly Absent In Food & Multivitamins

D — A — E — K

The Fat-Solubles provide vitality and energy that runs from your core to your fingertips.

Involved in every biological process, the Fat-Solubles affect energy levels, immunity, and hormonal functions like sleep and digestion.

Vitamin D is best received from sunlight, and liver troubles can prevent carotenes from converting to Vitamin A.

Vitamin E is nearly absent in most diets, and Vitamin K is provided by beneficial gut flora, which are often missing.

The story is one of deficiency across the board — with food and multivitamins unable to help.

The 4 Fat Solubles

The beneficial roles of each Fat-Soluble vitamin are extremely broad: “Vitamin D is good for bones” or “Vitamin A is good for the eyes” are both much too narrow descriptions.
