General Information

A vitamin is an organic compound required by the organism not as a source of energy but in order to perform vital functions. Vitamins can usually not be synthesised by the body itself. What they have in common is that they need to be ingested, hence they are essential.

Vitamins can be divided into two groups: the water-soluble vitamins of the B group and vitamin C, and the fat-soluble vitamins E, D, K and A.
