function of vitamin A
1) maintaining night and colour vision
2) improve and supports reproduction and growth.
in men - improve sperm development
in women- promote fetal growth and development
3) health and maintenance of cells ( protein synthesis and cell differentiation)

inability to see well in the dark, a condition called night blindness.
also causes dry and rough skin.
one can become more susceptible to infectious diseases because damages the lining of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts, so they can't act as effective barriers against bacteria.
plugging of hair follicle with keratin, forming white lumps
vitamin D ( calcitriol)
animal version :
plant version :
mineralization of bones by :
a) raises blood calcium and phosphorus by increasing absorption from digestive tract.
b) withdrawing calcium from bones
c) stimulating retention by kidneys.
synthesized in the body with the help of sunlight.
fortified milk, margarine, butter, cereals and chocolates mixes
beef, egg yolks, liver, fatty fish, (salmon, sardines) and their oils.
rickets in children
a) Inadequate calcification, resulting in misshapen bones (bowing of legs).
b) enlargement of ends of long bones (knees and wrists).
c) Deformities of ribs (bowed with beads or knobs).
d) Delayed closing of fontanel, resulting in rapid enlargement of head.
e) Lax muscles resulting in protrusion of abdomen.
f) Muscle spasms.
sources of vitamin E
function of vitamin E
function of vitamin K
sources of vitamin K
deficincy of vitamin K
1) antioxidant (stabilization of cell membranes, regulation of oxidation reactions, protection of polyunsaturated fatty acids and vitamin A)
2) reduce platelet aggregation and oxidation of LDL and reduce heart disease.
3)protect oxidative damage to red blood cell membrane.
4) help in iron metabolism
5) maintain nervous tissue and immune function
deficiency symptoms :
a) red blood cell breakage
b) nerve cell damage
necessary for blood clotting and synthesis of proteins found in plasma, bone and kidneys.
bacterial synthesis in the digestive tract
leafy green vegetables, cabbage type vegetables.
more likely to have bruising and bleeding
hemorrhaging (the loss of blood or blood escape from the circulatory system
vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
vitamin B2 (Riboflavin)
vitamin B3 (Niacin)
vitamin B5 (Pantothenic acid)
vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine)
vitamin B7 (Biotin)
vitamin B9 (folic acid)
vitamin B12 (Cobalamins)
part of coenzyme TPP used in carbohydrate metabolism and branched chain amino acids.
nerve function-synthesis neurotransmitter, conduction of nerve impulse.
vitamin B2 ( Riboflavin)
involved in breakdown of fatty acid
activate vitamin B6 coenzyme to convert tryptophan to niacin.
used to produce ATP
exp : glucose to
help to make red blood cells
part of a coenzymes used in energy metabolism, fat synthesis, and glycogen synthesis
part of coenzymes THF
used in DNA synthesis
amino acid metabolism
neural tube defect
helps to maintain nerve cell
reform folate coenzymes
helps to breakdown fatty acid & amino acids
amino acid metabolism
helps in absorption of iron
sources of retinol includes eggs, meat, fortified milk, cheese, cream, liver, kidney.
Sources of beta-carotene include:
Bright yellow and orange fruits such
as cantaloupe, pink grapefruit, and
Vegetables such as carrots, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, and winter squash
Include broccoli, spinach, and most dark green, leafy vegetables.
polyunsaturated plant oils (margarine, salad dressings, shortening)
leafy green vegetables, wheat germ, whole grains, liver, egg yolks, nuts, seeds.
part of coenzyme A
used in energy metabolism
water soluble VS fat soluble
