Things That Affect Vitamin Absorption

Hybrid Nutraceuticals, makers of MiracleMulti, knows that vitamins and mineral supplements are important for most people to be as healthy as possible. Research has found that the effective absorption of vitamins can range from 20% - 90%. It is also important to understand that there are a number of things that will affect how the supplements are absorbed into your body.

Enzymes - when you take vitamins and supplements, absorption can be increased by your body’s increase in enzymes and bile acid in your stomach. However, some foods, such as raw fruits and vegetables can interfere with the absorption of vitamins. Enzymes that destroy or inactivate thiamine (vitamin B1), are present in fish, shellfish, and other foods.

The Body’s Health - The body has many complex nutrient absorption pathways, and many of these are fragile and easily affected by illness or lifestyle, which become apparent in various symptoms. For example, chronic excess alcohol consumption can inhibit the absorption of many vitamins. In addition, as people age they have greater requirements for many vitamins, because the ability of their body to convert and absorb vitamins is often not as efficient.

Lack of proper fat in diet - Some vitamins are fat soluble, such as Vitamin D. Fat must be present in the intestines for Vitamin D to be properly absorbed. So if your daily diet does not include healthy fatty acids, your body’s ability to absorb fat-soluble nutrients will be diminished.

As you can see, there are a variety of things that can affect how much of the vitamins and supplements you take are absorbed into the body. As an educated consumer, you not only have to find quality vitamins and supplements, but you must also make sure your body can  utilize them.
