Nutrition The absorption of nutrients from food.
Vitamins Organic compounds required in very small quantities but that play an essential role in specific metabolic pathways.
Fat-soluble vitamins Vitamins A, D3, K, and E. These vitamins are absorbed primarily from the digestive tract. Vegetables are potential sources of fat-soluble vitamins.
Avitaminosis Vitamin deficiency disease. Rarely results in the dietary insufficiency of fat-soluble vitamins.
Hypervitaminosis Having too much of a vitamin causes this. Occurs when dietary intake exceeds the body's ability to store, utilize, or excrete a particular vitamin. Most commonly involves one of the fat soluble vitamins.
Water-soluble vitamins B vitamins and vitamin C. Most are components of coenzymes. B vitamins are found in meat, eggs, and dairy products, and vitamin C is found in citrus fruits.
