Difference of Fat Soluble from Water Soluble Vitamins:
Fat Soluble:
Small amounts of vitamins A, D, E and K are needed to maintain good health.
Foods that contain these vitamins will not lose them when cooked.
The body does not need these every day and stores them in the liver when not used.
Most people do not need vitamin supplements.
Megadoses of vitamins A, D, E or K can be toxic and lead to health problems.

Water Soluble:
B-complex vitamins and vitamin C are water-soluble vitamins that are not stored in the body and must be replaced each day.
These vitamins are easily destroyed or washed out during food storage and preparation.
The B-complex group is found in a variety of foods: cereal grains, meat, poultry, eggs, fish, milk, legumes and fresh vegetables.
Citrus fruits are good sources of vitamin C.
Use of megadoses of vitamins is not recommended.
