  • Vitamins:
    • Vitamin, any of several organic substances that are necessary for small quantities for normal health and growth in higher forms of animal life.
    • Vitamins are distinct in several ways from other biologically important compounds such as proteins, carbohydrates, and lipids.
    • Although these latter substances also are indispensable for proper bodily functions, almost all of them can be synthesized by animals in adequate quantities.
    • Vitamins, on the other hand, generally cannot be synthesized in amounts sufficient to meet bodily needs and therefore must be obtained from the diet or from some synthetic source.
    • For this reason, vitamins are called essential nutrients.
    • Vitamins also differ from the other biological compounds in that relatively small quantities are needed to complete their functions.
    • In general, these functions are of a catalytic or regulatory nature, facilitating or controlling vital chemical reactions in the body’s cells.
    • If a vitamin is absent from the diet or is not properly absorbed by the body, a specific deficiency disease may develop.
  • Chemical Names of certain Vitamins:
    • Vitamin B1 - Thiamine
    • Vitamin B2 - Riboflavin
    • Vitamin B3 - Niacin
    • Vitamin D - Calcipherol
    • Vitamin E - Tocopherol
    • Vitamin K - Phylloquinone
