View full lesson:

Vitamins are the building blocks that keep our bodies running; they help build muscle and bone, capture energy, heal wounds and more. But if our body doesn’t create vitamins, how do they get into our system? Ginnie Trinh Nguyen describes what vitamins are, how they get into our bodies — and why they are so crucial.

  110. I feel so healthy by watching this video.

  111. Lovely but just a note: bile is not acidic, and it doesn’t break down lipids in the sense of digesting it but only emulsifying it (breaking larger droplets into smaller droplets of lipids) making it easier for lipases to digest it.
    I know it is not the focus of the video but for KS4 students it is very relevant and I rather not suggest the video if these minor details might get them confused.

  112. Vitamin K is a whole mood

  143. Is it Jack sparro 🤠

  144. I guess now I wonder though, what benefit the plants were getting from the vitamins in order to produce them. Carrots are high in vitamin A, but they don’t have white blood cells or night vision. Green leafy vegetables are high in vitamin K but its not like they need to form blood clots.

  202. i like how begrudgingly and contemptuously the “non water soluble” vitamin is looking at the vitamin c casually and nonchalantly floating through the bloodstream without a single care in the world

  203. Yea it’s cute and all but how do they know what a body needs, how do they know if supplement works. If our body don’t make these things why do our bodies need them?

  530. I loved vitamin c

  531. Why vitamin k block the blood vessels and it could be a risk of a heart attack

  532. Can those vitamins be my babies?

  533. To me this is more like a ‘What do Vitamins do in your body?’ video, but it doesn’t explain how they actually work. Okay, they make this, help doing that, they built this and defend us against that again. But how?? How do they know where to go when they entered our body? How do they actually DO all the things when they reached their destination? Like do they move their little arms and legs or is it all a chemical chainreaction and if so how does it work?
    And what makes them do it, or regulate what they do?? I want to understand T.T

  534. Awesome!! The Best Ted Ed Video I’ve Seen!!

  535. Vitamin C fighter germs. Vitamin A makes white-blood-sells.

  551. Excellent! But please take a look a Dr Andrew Saul on You Tube! His work on Vitamin research is amazing. He puts it across very well and gives some incredible information about Vitamin C. Great vid thanks.

    1. NATURELO multivitamins. Noone can compete with them.

    2. Hello , subscribe this scientific channel plz

    3. TheRepairSpecialist I watched your recommended video.

      The video was elaborate and enlightening on the various versatilities of vitamin c, and how it can be used to cure AIDS, HIV, Fluenza (pardon my spelling) and many other health issues. The video reveals how underestimated vitamin c really is and how insufficient the RDI/RDA is compared to the amount we ought to be taking, now based on an illness situation a greater amount of vitamin c ought to be taken.
      It also reveals the researches regarding vitamin c that has per se swept under the carpet.

  552. /hello/

  553. The vitamins are cute! XD

  554. This is so cute

  555. I loved this animation on vitamins. Great work!

  567. I’m watching this in my class we are watching this

  568. And vitamins are cute!

  569. “Too much of any vitamin can cause toxicity in the body.”
    Being a kid who grew up with Flintstones vitamins, I can personally say that isn’t true.

  570. The animation is super cute but the voice actor’s voice is super pleasing too.Wonder who he is🤔?

  571. 4:02 Spiderman Spiderman

  572. Lowkey thought E was gonna hang himself

  573. I can only imagine how proud are those who study medicine because they know this already

  574. I love how the “they got scurvy” is layed on kinda monotone. like a passive aggressive way of threatening you into eating vitamins………. did my mom make this?

  575. summary :

    there are 2 types of vitamins – lipid soluble and water soluble
    water solubles are easily absorbed and leave so need constant replacement
    lipid solubles travel in the bloodstream by bonding with proteins that carry them around, the vitamins are stored in liver or fats so dont overload
    Jobs of the vitamins:
    A-make white blood cell, shape bones, and keep eye cells in check
    B- release energy
    C-fight infection and make collagen
    D- gather calcium and phosphorus for bones
    E- antioxidant, get rid of harmful elements in body
    K- clot blood

    lack of vitamins can cause problems, but too much of anything would be toxic.

  576. The “protein taxi”! I love it 😀

  577. i wanna b cute like protein taxi

  578. Has anyone died of vitamin overdose ?


  580. I love how you show the vitamins working on the body in such a cute way!

  581. Vitals a-e makes sence and k me:what who descovered that vitamin professor ku klux

  586. The animations are so adorable but they often distract me

  587. Thank you to publishers and creators! THIS IS SUPER ADORABLE!

  588. 😢😒🤐😟

  589. *Bile is alkaline, one of its uses is to neutralize stomach acid

  590. Daddy there a Cancer cell in my body

  591. i like how cocky vit C was thrown away …and at same time how vit K get trapped…karma bitch lol 😅

  592. bit pointless if you don’t have a clue how much of any vitamin you are getting in the food or whether you may benefit from supplementation

  593. b looks like a butt. and b stands for butt. lol

  594. Awesome animation. 🙂 🙂 🙂

  595. cute cute vitamins

  608. vitamin C was just chill lasting and smiling until he saw his doom

  609. Nice teaching keep it up bro

  610. vitamin D is good from mercury an animnlamDHRUMANT

  611. This was so helpful, so much more than my nutrition textbook.

  612. French subtitles please

  613. Would it be possible to just live only on vitamin pills?

    1. Unfortunately no, because things like proteins and fats (which are needed almost on a daily basis much like vitamins), are difficult to put into pill form in a way that would last. Proteins and fats tend to go bad, so even if you could get them into pill form with all the other vitamins the pills wouldn’t last very long. This is why vitamin pills are called supplements, you take them on top of whatever else you eat day by day to make up for any vitamins that your food is lacking in. If you could make a pill that gave you EVERYTHING you needed to live, that would be some Jetson’s kind of miracle-pill that could be used to solve world hunger.Maybe someday, though 🙂

  614. 4:12 dab

  615. i love these cute animations and his voice is the most plesant in my opinion

  616. Spider vitamin!! Spider vitamin!!

    see kids ?
    this is why we so be vegetarian

  620. lol k looks so cad

  621. Let’s not forget magnesium which works with vitamin c

  622. I bet this creepy ass animation with the ugly characters and frightened vitamin characters induces anxiety in children. Good typical mkultra work, ted scumbags.

  623. this is the greatest video ever

  624. vitmen b is a butt shape

  625. TED-ED ur people are just awesome making complex things easy to understand .

  626. If this getsmlost in the sea of comments……… remember me!

  627. Protein taxis face its like “sooo…are you from around here?”

  628. Now that he mentioned that the body generally is stored with enough supply of vitamins I think I’m over doing it with the vegetables. I also went to the store and purchased a load of supplements that I do not need. This is confusing because if vitamins are stored for future use then why should we continue to consume them if overloading has the potential to be hazardous. I’m so afraid of lacking iron again.

  629. Is this lesson from a Vietnamese?

  630. I love your animatons

  631. I love videos lie this were the little ‘things’ or whatever is in the video are alive and have like a whole system it really helps me to understand. instead of showing just complicated dna pictures and circles going through tubes this shows what they do inside and personal in a way it’s easy to understand. I hope they make more videos like this!

  632. Thanks a lot.

  633. Vitamin B is *T H I C C*

  634. I really enjoyed the animation on this one

  635. I love Addison Anderson’s voice *.*

  636. I loved this video 😀 😀 😀 It’s very well done and animated.

  637. This is my favorite video. 🙂

    1. awww…………..

  638. the white blood cell factory tho

  639. the animations made me laugh

  640. C me.

  641. bile from the liver ??? from gallbladder you mean

    1. The gallbladder just stores it and the liver actually produces it

  642. the animation makes vitamins interesting

  643. poor C had to lift all of them

  644. I have a question that may sound stupid but I’ll ask it. What does vitamin B12 do?

  645. vitamin B… for butt XD

  646. That animation was so cool.

  647. Fucku

  648. But the milk it is not a healthy food… We need vegetables, cereals, fruits, healthy oils and sometimes a little portion of meat. That milk that they sell us it’s for the calf, for their development until to be a cow or bull. Has their own hormones that they need for this phase.

  649. ▶ ⚫—————— 00:10
    Voice comments are so cool!

  650. best lesson ever

  651. I thought with sun exposure we could synthesize our own D vitamins?

  652. The use of vitamins is doubted after study. Particularly Vitamin C and Inflammation… But at least they hint at the uselessness of vitamin supplements for healthy peolpe.

  653. nice

  654. B for but right?

  655. vitamin K hates vitamin C xD

  656. What you said about vitamin C fighting infection is actually incorrect. Vitamin C helps with iron absorption, but don’t do anything to help with your immune response. This is a persistent false idea started in the 70s, but that doesn’t stop it from being false.

    1. Nice

    2. Kate Speaks i totally agree same as vitamin D which is used to absorb calcium

  657. DACKBE

  658. Great Video, Thank you!

    B Butt
    C Corn

  677. lol batmans head looks like an ass

  678. 3:05 oh s**t! we are vitamins nazis

  679. Isn’t bile an alkaline substance that emulsifies fat?

  680. I drink a lot of milk so vitamin k is for me.

    1. @Eraser How bout’ no.

    2. And my nose bleeds are fairly short.

  681. #EsLongLegs

  682. XD I love this..

  683. Thank you for share….

  684. Actually the current intake recommendation is way too low especially the vitamin c ppl should atleast take 10,000mg of vitamin c daily

  685. Awesome video.

  686. What’s the deal with vitamin supplements not being as good as vitamins from food?

    1. Geoff Heimy you need things like fat to get certain vitamins.

  687. I’m a normal person, if I want to get taller,should I consume calcium tablets? Would it be too much?

    1. Children tend to be taller than their parents. Like Verkkariritari said, it is the genetics that play the biggest role.

    2. Genetics play the biggest part in it but u can supplement it with a healthy, diversified diet.

    3. +Miguel Angel Hernández Solís i taller than both my dad and mom

    4. @snow white​ I see you probability will have the same height no matter what you do

    5. @Miguel Angel Hernández Solís my mom maybe 5ft, my dad maybe 5.5ft

  688. Now I feel sorry for the vitamin K 🙁

    1. you are right

    2. Vitamin k just turned into Spider-Man

    3. wdym they get to become spooderman

    4. And I feel sorry for the pirate at the end 🙁

    5. R.I.P Vitamin K

  689. B looks like a butt

  690. in 2:05 minutes of the video,the narration says “an acidic substance called bile” which is not correct. According to books and medical science,bile has a ph between 7 and 8 which makes it slightly alkaline and definitely not acidic. This can be a matter which the channel should look into. Otherwise,its a great video,truely enjoyed watching it. God bless Ted-ed

    1. Yes

    2. @Bananappleboy World wasps litteraly do help out the ecosystem

    3. And some of them said some false facts, such as wasps “helping with ecosystems.”
      Some of these videos are also simplified.

    4. None of these ppl know anything about a body

    5. Bile is composed of bile acids and salts, phospholipids, cholesterol, pigments, water, and electrolyte chemicals that keep the total solution slightly alkaline (with a pH of about 7 to 8)

  691. 0:57 1:59 2:01 2:08 2:13 2:34 2:38 2:58 3:03

    5. @Daniyal Shah but they make them
