Vitamins are organic essential micronutrients that we need to obtain from our diet or through supplements in order to prevent deficiencies. Vitamins assist us with a range of biochemical processes.

 

 

There are two categories of vitamins: fat-soluble and water-soluble. The fat-solubles are Vitamins A, D, E and K. Vitamin A (retinol) is typically found in animal products such as milk and eggs, though can be derived from plant-based foods in the form of beta-carotene (two molecules of retinol linked together). Vitamin D is the well-known sunshine vitamin. The sun sends us specific wavelengths of (helpful) radiation—which are in the 290-315 nanometer range, in case you’re interested—that stimulates production of Vitamin D in our skin. The basic starter molecule or building block that we need for Vitamin D synthesis is actually cholesterol. That's right, we need cholesterol to manufacture vitamin D! The human body truly is a weird and wacky science. Some of the best food sources are cod liver oil and there is a little found in fatty fish. Vitamin E can be found in whole grains, one of the best natural sources of which is wheat germ oil, while Vitamin K is found in green leafy vegetables.

 

 

The water-soluble vitamins are B Complex and Vitamin C, which perform countless functions in the human body. Some of the roles of B Vitamins are assisting with the functioning of the krebs cycle, which is involved in energy production, and serving as cofactors for the synthesis of neurotransmitters in the brain. This makes B vitamins important for supporting mood and managing psychological stress. Vitamin C is a well known vitamin commonly used during winter to ward off colds and flues. However, some lesser known roles for Vitamin C, amongst many others, are for the synthesis of hydroxylysine and hydroxyproline, important for connective tissues such as tendons and cartilage, and for the health of the adrenal glands. Other important vitamins for immune function are Vitamins A, D and E.

 

 

Lately, activated versions of B vitamins have made their way to the Australian market. Some vitamins, like Vitamin B12, need to be "activated" within our own bodies before they are of any use to us. One example is cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12). This nutrient needs to be converted to either Methylcobalamin or Adenosylcobalamin in order to be "active". However, depending on genetics and what we call polymorphisms, we may or may not possess the enzymes necessary to perform this function at a fast enough rate for optimal health. Therefore, taking our Vitamin B12 supplement as Methylcobalamin can be advantageous. Other examples are pyridoxine (Vitamin B6) and pyridoxal-5-phosphate (activated form), riboflavin and riboflavin-5-phosphate (activated) and folate and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (activated). However, there may be some benefit from taking Vitamin B6 in both forms.
