Depletion varies. If you have a high need for vitamin A (retinol), you can quickly deplete any stores. We do have a limited amount of ability to absorb vitamin A (retinol) and beta carotene. You might consume 1000% of vitamin A (retinol) in a... (more)

Yes, we store water-soluble vitamins/minerals. The liver has stores of a number of vitamins/minerals. And this makes sense… why do we humans eat animal livers? Because the nutrients are concentrated/stored there. What's found there? Vitamins A... (more)
