How Does The Body Absorb Vitamins?

absorb-vitamins

“A full day’s supply of vitamin C! A full day’s supply of 12 vitamins and minerals! A single glass of vitamin-D-fortified milk sending half a day’s recommended dose of the vitamin coursing through your body! It’s very exciting, all this vitamin-y goodness. Vitamins, which are organic substances found in plant and animal sources, help our bodies function properly. They’re crucial to the activities of our cells, our organs, immune systems and general energy supply. They may even help ward off cancer. What exactly does that mean, though, to consume vitamins?

The record-breaking vehicle is Sunswift’s fifth car, the Sunswift eVe. The vehicle previously ran in the 2013 World Solar Challenge, a 1,864 miles solar car race in Australia that runs from Darwin to Adelaide. The car has a top speed of 86mph with an electric-only range of approximately 310 miles, or up to 497 miles when its solar cells are also active – all while using about as much power as a kitchen toaster when travelling at freeway speeds. The solar system was turned off to adhere to the electric car specific record attempt.” w/ photos
