The body, itself, produces many substances which may, ultimately, form a vitamin. However, generally, vitamins cannot be made inside the body. Instead they must come from the foods we eat.
These substances, although tiny in amounts, are quite potent and essential for several bodily functions and processes. Some vitamins are soluble in water and others in oils.
Many mysteries still exist about vitamins. Research to identify and isolate vitamins continues in laboratories all over the world. Sometimes they are “discovered” when a human or animal is steadily deprived of certain kinds of foods. The resulting conditions help researchers decide that a specific substance is causing the undesired effect. In other cases, a given malfunction or disorder in the body corrects itself when sufficient amounts of a specific substance is supplied.
