Vitamins and supplements are another class of active nutritional substances that are vital to the human body in assisting normal metabolism. In energy metabolism, vitamins and minerals act as functional parts of enzymes involved in energy release and storage. The breakdown of nutrients and the building of macromolecules, such as protein, RNA, and DNA are assisted by water-soluble B vitamins working as coenzymes. B vitamins help the body metabolize carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, and help use the stored energy in food. For example, Thiamine (B-1), helps cells convert carbohydrates into energy.
The function of Vitamin A is to help form and maintain healthy teeth, skeletal and soft tissue, mucus membranes, and skin. Vitamin A produces the pigments in the retina of the eye and, therefore, is also known as retinol. Good vision, especially in low light conditions, is enhanced by Vitamin A. Beta-carotene, a pre-cursor of Vitamin A, is one of a group of red, orange, and yellow pigments called carotenoids. Beta-carotene and other carotenoids provide approximately 50% of the Vitamin A needed in our diet. Beta-carotene is readily found in fruits, vegetables (especially carrots) and whole grains.
L-ascorbic acid, known commonly as Vitamin C, is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in citrus fruits. Unlike in most animals, the human body is incapable of synthesizing Vitamin C endogenously, therefore, it needs to be an essential dietary supplement. It plays an important role in the biosynthesis of collagen, L-carnitine, and certain neurotransmitters and is also involved in protein metabolism. Collagen plays a vital role in wound healing and is an essential component of connective tissue. As an important physiological antioxidant, Vitamin C has been shown to regenerate other antioxidants within the body, such as alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E).
In addition to vitamins, there are several supplements that target specific body functions and responses. For example, L-carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid derivative often taken for weight loss. Creatine Monohydrate is an quick energy booster. Inositol is used to regrow hair and could reverse baldness. Lutein is a supplement that could improve vision.
