How digestion of vitamin takes place in human body?? Explain

Vitamins are an essential part of our dietary regimen to maintain bodily functions. Our body cannot make vitamins on its own, so they must be obtained from the foods we eat.The availability of vitamins is dependent upon the food eaten, which releases the vitamins in the intestines. Fat-soluble vitamins(A, D, E, K) require fat or lipid micelles as a carrier for transportation in the blood to travel to the liver and other fatty tissues. Water-soluble vitamins(B and C) ,  are digested and transported into the blood through active-transport channels in the intestine, meaning the concentration of the vitamin allows for channels to open and the vitamin to cross the intestines to a specific protein in the blood. 

I hope it's clear! :)
