What is the difference between fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins and what is its clinical importance?
Water-soluble vitamins, as named, dissolve in water. This means that any excess amount can be removed from the body via the excretory (urinary) system. Fat-soluble vitamins, on the other hand, dissolve in the fat and can be stored in bodily tissues, therefore, making them not as easily removed. It is important that individuals avoid intaking more than the recommended amount of either vitamin, however, an excess of fat-soluble vitamins can pose a greater risk to the human body. This is because they can build up in the tissues and cannot be removed through urine, as water-soluble vitamins can.
