Action
Pharmacology: Vitamins are organic compounds required for the normal growth and maintenance of life by humans. Their functions fall into two categories, the maintenance of normal structure and normal metabolic functions. All vitamins cannot be synthesised in the tissues of humans and there is no one natural source which contains all the vitamins in the proportion that are needed for human nutrition. Hence, to meet the nutritional requirements for normal growth and development and maintenance of good health, vitamin supplementation is necessary.
