Health Functions of Vitamins

Vitamins are essential for virtually all chemical processes within the body that create and use energy, such as digestion of food and nutrients, elimination of waste through urine and faeces, growth and development, and regulation of cell function.

Vitamins work together with proteins that regulate biochemical processes or enzymes, substances that assist those proteins known as cofactors, and other substances necessary for good health. Each vitamin has specific functions.
