This article is a complete introduction to explain the most important vitamins, their role and the best source of food. The article contains two water-soluble vitamins and one fat-soluble vitamin.
Follow the following pages to learn about these vitamins and their role:
A) Water Soluble Vitamins:
They are water-soluble vitamins that are not stored in the body and must be replaced every day. These vitamins are Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Pantothenic Acid, Biotin, and Vitamin C. Therefore, we start with B vitamins:
1. Vitamin B1:
Necessary to process carbohydrates, fats and proteins. Vitamin B1 is required by everyone to make the fuel the body works on. Every nerve cell requires vitamin B1 to function properly. Wheat germ, peas, beans, enriched flour, fish, peanuts, and meat are all excellent sources of Vitamin B1. As people age, poor diet and excessive alcohol consumption may lead to vitamin B1 deficiency. The suggested RDA for Vitamin B1 is unclear but the amount found in most Vitamin supplements are more than enough. Vitamin B1 works in conjunction with Vitamin B2 and Vitamin B3.
