Are vitamins stored in the body? Yes. Some more than others.

Lipid-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin E, are stored in fat cells

until needed.


Vitamins stored in the body are fat-soluble; they are vitamins

A, D, E, K.

Vitamins that are not stored in the body are water-soluble:

Folate, Biotin, Pantothenic acid, Thiamin (B1), Riboflavin(B2),

Niacin (B3), Pyridoxine(B6), B12* and C.

*B12 is the only water-soluble vitamin that can be stored in the

body, primarily in the liver.
