The Role of Vitamins in the Body

Vitamins are considered essential nutrients and are needed in small quantities to maintain proper function and good health in the body.  While humans and animals can obtain adequate healthy vitamins from a proper diet, more often than not, the body does not produce as many vitamins as the body requires.

Vitamins are classified as either water-soluble or fat-soluble. In humans, 13 types of vitamins are recognized as essential for the proper functioning of the system.

Each vitamin has a special function from the production of red blood cells, healing wounds, to boosting the body’s immunity. Four types of vitamins A, D, E, and K fall under the fat-soluble category and the other nine types of vitamins including B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, B6, B12, and folate) and C fall under the water-soluble category.

Most vitamins are water-soluble and will dissolve fast in the water. They are also excreted equally fast out of the body. This essentially means that while the body needs them to function, they cannot be stored in the body and a frequent intake is required to sustain normal body function. Fat-soluble vitamins, on the other hand, mostly occur in high-fat animal proteins like egg yolks and dairy products.

Fat-soluble vitamins are absorbed and stored in the adipose tissue and the liver through the intestines in the presence of lipids. Unlike water-soluble vitamins, the intake of fat-soluble vitamins should be regulated.

Where do manufacturers source Vitamins?

Naturally, vitamins occur in plants and animals. Therefore, vitamins can be extracted from plants and food sources or synthesized chemically in a specialized laboratory to be ingested in the form of nutritional supplements or incorporated as an ingredient in other products.

Commercially produced vitamins are mostly synthetic vitamins as they are cost-effective to produce compared to natural extracts. For instance, Vitamin A can either be derived from fish liver oil or synthetically produced from acetone while Vitamin C can be extracted from citrus fruits or synthetically produced from keto acid.

It is important to note that there is no difference between the chemical composition of vitamins derived from plants and animals and those produced synthetically.  Also, the same processes are used for the production of both synthetic and natural vitamins hence both are safe for human consumption. However, the techniques that different laboratories employ in the production of vitamins vary. All vitamins distributed by Arichem Limited are sourced from certified manufacturers and produced under highly controlled and regulated production facilities and processes that comply with the highest safety standards.

When produced in the forms of tablets and capsules, vitamins will typically be combined with excipients such as to facilitate their processing. Excipients are also responsible for their shape, color, stability, and other biopharmaceutical attributes. Excipients such as maltodextrin and microcrystalline cellulose are commonly used as fillers to increase the volume to aid the processing of vitamins while also facilitating their formulation into the appropriate sizes for consumption. Stearic acid acts as a lubricant in vitamin tablets, starch acts as a disintegrant or binder, and cellulose bases such as ethylcellulose as a coating film.
