VITAMIN B: INTRODUCTION, BIOCHEMICAL ROLE AND DEFICIENCY

Vitamins are organic compounds essential for normal physiological functions. However, some of them are not synthesized endogenously by the body and therefore have to be sequestered in small quantities from the diet. Humans require 13 vitamins: namely A, D, E, K, C and the eight B vitamins: thiamine (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), vitamin B6, folate (B9) and vitamin B12.
