Vitamins

  • David S. Goodsell

Abstract

Vitamins are vital links in our metabolism: molecules that our body absolutely needs, but that our cells cannot make themselves. Somewhere in the evolution of our distant ancestors, we lost the ability to make these molecules, presumably because they were always available in the diet. Today we have no choice. We must obtain these important molecules in our food.
