Water-Soluble Vitamins

Water-soluble vitamins like vitamin B-6, vitamin C, and folic acid are easily absorbed by the body when consumed. Your body uses these vitamins when it needs them, then excretes any excess water-soluble vitamins in your urine. Because these vitamins are not stored in the body in any fashion, there is a lot less risk of toxicity than with fat-soluble vitamins, but there is a greater risk of being vitamin-deficient.
