Vitamins Health Topic

Vitamins are essential nutrients that are necessary for human health, but that must be obtained through diet because they cannot be synthesized in sufficient quantities by the body. These micronutrients are only needed in small amounts, but they cannot be stored in the body. Daily intake is necessary, whether from the diet or in supplemental form.

Vitamins are either fat-soluble or water-soluble. They have a variety of functions including roles as antioxidants, hormones and co-enzymes.

Vitamin deficiency diseases can be caused by poor diet lacing the necessary vitamin, or by a factor preventing vitamin absorbption and use, such as certain medications or illnesses. Not Found
