Here is a list of vitamins and there key roles in our metabolism.

  • Vitamin A: (= retinol) Essential for growth, particularly cell differentiating.
  • Vitamin B1: (= thiamine) Important for carbohydrate- metabolism.
  • Vitamin B2: (= riboflavin) Important to get energy from nutrients.
  • Vitamin B3: (= niacin) Necessary for proper functioning of the skin, nerve system and metabolism.
  • Vitamin B5: (= pantothenic acid) Necessary to get energy from nutrients.
  • Vitamin B6: (= pyridoxine) Has a role in protein-metabolism.
  • Vitamin B8: (= biotin) Has a key role in protein-metabolism.
  • Vitamin B12: (= cobalamin) Necessary for the production of blood.
  • Vitamin D: (= cholecalciferol) Has a key role in the production of bone structure.
  • Vitamin E: (= tocopherol) Contributes to muscle functions and antioxidant mechanisms.
