Additional Physical Format: Online version: Eddy, Walter Hollis, Vitaminology, the chemistry and function of the vitamins. Baltimore, Williams & Wilkins, The present book contains in one volume a comprehensive survey of the entire field of vitaminology.

The first few pages discuss the history and definition of vitamins, and the remainder of the book is devoted to a discussion of each of the known vitamins and some of the postulated vitamins. Vitamins are a group of organic nutrients of various nature required in small quantities for multiple biochemical reactions for the growth, survival and reproduction of the organism, and which, generally, cannot be synthesized by theFile Size: 1MB.

Vitamin, any of several organic substances that are necessary in small quantities for normal health and growth in higher forms of animal life. Vitamins generally cannot be synthesized in amounts sufficient to meet bodily needs and therefore must be obtained from the diet or from some synthetic source.

The body's stores for different vitamins vary widely; vitamins A, D, and B 12 are stored in significant amounts, mainly in the liver, and an adult's diet may be deficient in vitamins A and D for many months and B 12 in some cases for years, before developing a deficiency condition.

However, vitamin B 3 (niacin and niacinamide) is not stored in significant amounts, so stores may last only a Pronunciation: UK: /ˈvɪtəmɪn, ˈvaɪ-/, US: /ˈvaɪtəmɪn/. Medical definition of vitaminology: a branch of knowledge dealing with vitamins, their nature, action, and use.

Vitamins are classically categorised into fat-soluble vitamins and water soluble vitamins. This article only looks at the medicinal chemistry of vitamins from a fat-soluble perspective, beginning with Vitamin A. Vitamin A. The compounds in this group are polyenes.

The most prominent function of the vitamins is to serve as cofactors (co-enzymes) for enzymatic reactions. The distinguishing feature of the vitamins is that they generally cannot be synthesized by mammalian cells and, therefore, must be supplied in the diet.

The vitamins are of two distinct types, water soluble and fat soluble.

Generally, we can stick all of the vitamins into two broad categories. The fat soluble vitamins, vitamins A, D E, and K, can be stored by our bodies in the liver or in fatty tissues. Information resources on the chemistry and biochemistry of vitamins. Vitamins are organic chemical compounds required as a nutrient by an living organism.

A Vitamin cannot be synthesized biochemically by the organism, so it must be obtained from the diet. This book explores the known biochemical functions of the vitamins, the extent to which we can explain the effects of deficiency or excess and the scientific basis for reference intakes for the prevention of deficiency and promotion of optimum health and by: The book does a nice review of what the body's major nutrients (vitamins, minerals) are and why they are important.

Better still, it also outlines the major food sources containing these nutrients. However much of this information is readily available online, and I found the book a bit too aggressive in giving examples of what happens when one Cited by: 1. Abstract. There is no simple, overall statement which embraces each and every biological function of the vitamins.

Water-soluble vitamins are stored in smaller amounts in the body and must be consumed more often. They include the B vitamins and vitamin C. Excessive amounts of water /5(3).
