Most water soluble vitamins are not stored in large amounts by the body. This makes their regular consumption necessary. These vitamins are required in increasing amounts during periods of stress.
Stress of all kinds, including emotional stress and overindulgence, increases the excretion of vitamin C from our bodies and therefore raises our need for this vitamin. Studies indicate that vitamin C intake benefits the body in numerous ways, including providing an antioxidant role against contaminants such as pollution and cigarette smoke.
B group vitamins are necessary for normal function and maintenance of the nervous system. Alcohol consumption can impede the absorption and utilisation of the B vitamins, especially vitamin B1. Vitamin B1 is required for alcohol metabolism.
