Vitamins are vital organic nutrients required in tiny amounts in the diet, because they cannot be synthesized in sufficient quantities by the body.

Vitamins have diverse biochemical functions.

Some have hormone-like functions as regulators of calcium metabolism (vitamin D), others support cell and tissue growth and differentiation (vitamin A) or work as antioxidants (vitamin E and vitamin C).

The largest group of vitamins (the B vitamins) are precursors of cofactors, that assist enzyme functions in the metabolism.
