Vitamins are a group of unrelated organic compounds that perform specific functions to promote growth and maintain health. We need them in relatively small quantities, but without them we could not use the other nutrients we ingest. Vitamins act primarily as catalysts for chemical reactions to occur.

They are essential for energy release, tissue building and metabolic regulation. Multi-vitamins are a convenient way to get an adequate supply of vitamins.
