Vitamins: Vitamins are required by the body for its various metabolic processes and the normal working of the body. They are required by the body in very small amount. Vitamins do not yield energy but enable the body to use other nutrients. For a healthy person these requirements are met by a normal, well balanced diet. However, if our diet is lacking in any vitamin, we suffer from deficiency diseases.
