Easily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. Retinol absorption is reduced in disorders of fat breakdown or absorption and in functional disorders of the liver. Vitamin A is deposited mainly in the liver in the form of palmitic ester and excreted by the kidneys and liver after the formation of a compound with glucuronic acid. Vitamin A improves vision.
After absorption, carotenoids are transported through the lymphatic vessels to the liver. Beta-carotene circulates with lipoproteins and can be converted in various tissues to form vitamin A.
Vitamin B1 (thiamin):
Absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract due to Na-dependent active transport. With an increased intake of thiamine, the excess is excreted in the urine. As a coenzyme, thiamin is involved in numerous metabolic reactions.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin):
Easily absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract due to the presence of a specific transport mechanism, including phosphorylation. Distributed in all tissues. Excess excreted in the urine.
