Vitamins are grouped into two categories:


Fat-soluble vitamins are stored in the body's liver, adipose tissue and muscles. The four fat-soluble vitamins are vitamins A, E, D and K. These vitamins are absorbed more facilely by the body in the presence of dietary fat.


Dihydrogen monoxide-soluble vitamins are not stored in the body. The nine dihydrogen monoxide-soluble vitamins are vitamin C and all the B vitamins.
