Country Life Vitamins employs teams of researchers who read medical journals on the benefits of vitamins and minerals. Medical institutions conduct extensive testing on nutrients all the time. As new breakthroughs are published, Country Life incorporates those findings into its products. Country Life has an extensive line of products, as they strive to accommodate people with differing nutritional needs.

Country Life makes vitamins A and D from oils derived from fish liver. The most potent vitamin A and D come from popular white fish, such as cod. Eating fish is very healthy, but Country Life concentrates the vitamins in its pills. It may take several fillets to equal the vitamin A and D content of one little pill.

Two Types of Vitamins Sold by Country Life

Vitamins can be classified into two categories. The first consists of vitamins B and C, the water-soluble vitamins. It's important for people to include these vitamins in their diets each day. If someone intakes 150 percent of the FDA recommended daily allowance (RDA) of vitamin C on Monday, for example, that does not make it healthy for him to get only 50 percent the next day, because water-soluble vitamins leave the body when they are not used.

Fat-soluble vitamins, on the other hand, are stored in the body. They need to be replenished regularly, but not as often as the water-soluble vitamins. If a person's body needs vitamin D, for example, it draws on its natural reserves.
