Vitamins for Energy Extraction:
Just as we need a daily dose of energy in the form of calories to sustain ourselves and perform various household, professional, sports, and leisure activities, we also need something that lets our body to extract energy from these calories. Merely gorging on carbohydrates, fats, and proteins that are the sources of calories doesn’t grant you the required energy.

Vitamins B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), and B3 (Niacin) are involved in the metabolic processes within the body.
Junk foods contain ‘Empty Calories’, which refers to mere calories with no nutrition in the form of vitamins or minerals. This leads to storage of energy causing obesity. With no vitamins, the body won’t be able carry out the metabolic processes that help burn energy for usage. And the result is, you eat and swell while still feeling low. This is the reason why most people feel weak and lethargic even after consumption of too many calories.

Vitamins are micronutrients essential for men, women, and kids although the RDAs for each of the categories vary. Pregnant and breastfeeding women, working professionals, and sportsmen need a higher dose of vitamins to fulfill their extra requirements. However, this doesn’t mean that vitamins are required only for tough physical activities.

Vitamins for Beauty and Intelligence:
Even if you are an actress or a model, who does nothing but ramp walking or acting, you must not skip on your daily vitamins as they are absolutely essential for skin health, hair quality, and other body functions. Even your mental prowess depends on vitamins. Children’s vitamin requirements must be given special attention else their learning abilities, intelligence, and overall growth may be hampered.
Whether it is for eye care, joint care, fertility, or weight maintenance, vitamins govern all these functions in the body. Vitamin E is known to improve skin quality considerably. Vitamin A is crucial to eye health. Vitamin E acts as an antioxidant protecting the brain from free radicals. Vitamin B is essential for a feel-good feeling as they are involved in production of brain chemicals like serotonin, epinephrine, and dopamine.
