Introduction to Vitamins

All the best exercise in the world is useless without the proper nutrition. But the thing is, barely anyone knows how to eat.A healthy diet goes side by side with physical exercise.

In this line, a healthy eating style does not know deficiency in Vitamins and minerals. Taking Vitamin supplements for energy is certainly good practice.

The Vitamin is an organic molecule required by a living organism to a definite degree for proper bodily functioning.

Each Vitamin is crucial to a corresponding specific bodily function.

In the same way, deprivation of a particular Vitamin will render the organism concerned at the mercy of diseases associated with the lack of that Vitamin.

For this reason, Vitamin supplements are sold in Vitamin shoppes the world over. Vitamins are known as either water soluble or fat-soluble.

The former means they dissolve easily in water, and the latter means they are absorbed through the intestinal tract with the help of lipids.

Some of the greatest Vitamins are natural Vitamins and water soluble, such as Vitamin C and all the B Vitamins - Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pyridoxine, Folic acid, Cobalamin, Biotin, and Pantothenic acid.

Fat-soluble, health food Vitamins include Vitamin A, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, and Vitamin K.

In contrast to fat-soluble Vitamins, water-soluble Vitamins need to be replenished daily as they are not stored in the tissues but expended by the body on a daily basis.

In fact, fat-soluble Vitamins can accumulate, posing potential danger. By and large, an organism must obtain health Vitamins or at least their metabolic precursors from outside the body.

They are most often sourced from the organism's diet or whole food Vitamin. For one, Vitamin A can be derived from precursors such as beta carotene. Niacin can be obtained from the amino acid tryptophan and Vitamin D from exposure to sunlight.

From the cellular perspective, nutrition Vitamins make enzymes and hormones, the essential parts of our living.

Enzymes are responsible for catalyzing vital chemical reactions in your body and act as chemical messengers between remote body organs.

Meanwhile, hormones directly influence your growth, sexual characteristics, blood pressure, heart rate, glucose levels, and many other functions.

Vitamins and minerals contain no calories, thereby releasing no energy for the body.

Nevertheless, they lead to the processes that can cause energy. Vitamins must not be confused with other essential nutrients such as dietary minerals, essential fatty acids, or essential amino acids.

As of now, there are a total of thirteen known Vitamins, each one critical to stable health. Recommended daily allowances are standardized for the sole prevention of diseases arising from Vitamin deficiency.

There are many cheap Vitamins available in the market today, and Vitamin stores are in no shortage. There are herbal Vitamins, antioxidant Vitamins, liquid Vitamins, even weight loss Vitamins.
