In order to answer your question, I must first get you to understand the difference between Water soluble vitamins, and Fat soluble vitamins

Water soluble vitamins: Are vitamins that aren’t stored inside the body, therefore your body is in need of these vitamins on a regular basis. It’s your responsibility to supply your body with these kinds of vitamins regularly. Your body with absorb what it needs and any excess vitamins will be excreted from your body through your urine.
