All About Vitamins
Vitamins: Know What They Are and Why You Need Them
Vitamins are nutrients necessary for the regulation of many different bodily
functions in animals and humans. They are important for the formation of

tissues, blood cells, genetic material, hormones and chemicals for the nervous system. Vitamins can either be catalysts or coenzymes. As catalysts, vitamins bind with proteins to produce enzymes that will in turn produce essential

chemical reactions within the body. As coenzymes, they act as chemical
carriers from one body cell to the next.
The history of vitamins

Vitamins as we know them today were largely unknown thousands of years
ago and whatever nutrients and benefits vitamins give were only received
through the ingestion of food. Some of the ancient civilizations discovered
through observation, experimentation or purely by accident that some foods
seemed to offer relief or cures for certain illnesses and ailments. Ancient

Egyptian doctors, for example, would prescribe liver to patients suffering from
night blindness.

Certain vitamin benefits were also discovered long before they were named. The benefits of citrus fruits, for example, a known source of Vitamin C, was first extolled in the mid 1700s long before it was known that vitamins existed.
