    A Mini Review on Vitamins and Minerals

    Michael J. Gonzalez

    Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients because they perform hundreds of roles in the body. There is a fine line between getting enough of these nutrients (which is healthy) and getting too much (which can end up harming you). Eating a healthy diet remains the best way to get sufficient amounts of the vitamins and minerals you need. Every day, our body produces skin, muscle, and bone. It churns out rich red blood that carries nutrients and oxygen to remote outposts, and it sends nerve signals skipping along thousands of miles of brain and body pathways. It also formulates chemical messengers that shuttle from one organ to another, issuing the instructions that help sustain your life. Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrientsbecause acting in concert, they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help shore up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage. Vitamins and minerals are often called micronutrients because your body needs only tiny amounts of them. Yet failing to get even those small quantities virtually guarantees disease.

    A Review on Minerals Deficiency in Body

    Raymond R Hyatt

    Some of the most prevalent reasons include an increased need for the mineral, a lack of the mineral in the diet, or trouble absorbing the mineral through food. Mineral deficiencies can cause a number of health issues, including brittle bones, exhaustion, and a weakened immune system. Minerals are certain types of nutrients that your body requires for optimum function. When your body does not get or absorb the required amount of a mineral, you have a mineral deficit. To keep healthy, the human body requires various amounts of each mineral. A deficiency develops gradually over time and can be caused by a variety of factors. Some of the most prevalent reasons include an increased need for the mineral, a lack of the mineral in the diet, or trouble absorbing the mineral through food. Mineral deficiencies can cause a number of health issues, including brittle bones, exhaustion, and a weakened immune system.

    A Mini Review on Vitamin Deficiency

    Benjamin U Nwosu

    Vitamin deficiency is the condition of a long-term lack of a vitamin. When caused by not enough vitamin intake it is classified as a primary deficiency, whereas when due to an underlying disorder such as malabsorption it is called a secondary deficiency. An underlying disorder may be metabolic – as in a genetic defect for converting tryptophan to niacin – or from lifestyle choices that increase vitamin needs, such as smoking or drinking alcohol. Government guidelines on vitamin deficiencies advise certain intakes for healthy people, with specific values for women, men, babies, the elderly, and during pregnancy or breastfeeding. Many countries have mandated vitamin food fortification programs to prevent commonly occurring vitamin deficiencies.

    A Brief Note Deficiency of Iron in Body

    Raymond R Hyatt

    Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia, and it occurs when your body doesn’t have enough of the mineral iron. Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin. When there isn’t enough iron in your blood stream, the rest of your body can’t get the amount of oxygen it needs. While the condition may be common, many people don’t know they have iron deficiency anemia. It’s possible to experience the symptoms for years without ever knowing the cause. In women of childbearing age, the most common cause of iron deficiency anemia is a loss of iron in the blood due to heavy menstruation or pregnancy. A poor diet or certain intestinal diseases that affect how the body absorbs iron can also cause iron deficiency anemia.

    Fat Soluble Vitamins: Vitamins A, D, E, and K

    Benjamin U Nwosu

    Fats are the body's most concentrated source of energy (37 kJ/g). They also help to absorb fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K, as well as other fat-soluble biologically active components. Because they are soluble in organic solvents and are absorbed and transported in a way comparable to fats, vitamins A, D, E, and K are known as fat-soluble vitamins. Vision, bone health, immunological function, and coagulation are just a few of the physiological processes that fat-soluble vitamins play a part in. The biochemistry, transport, and functions of these vitamins are discussed in this review, with a focus on deficient disorders and potential toxicities.They absorb in the lymph, are transported in the circulation via carrier proteins, and can be stored in the liver and fatty tissues since they are fat soluble.

      Unsaturated Fats are the Structure Squares of the Fat in Our Bodies

      Gwangseok R. Yoon*

      Unsaturated fats are the structure squares of the fat in our bodies
      and in the food we eat. During assimilation, the body separates fats
      into unsaturated fats, which would then be able to be retained into the
      blood. Unsaturated fat particles are generally consolidated in
      gatherings of three, shaping an atom called a fatty substance. Fatty
      oils are likewise made in our bodies from the sugars that we eat.
      Unsaturated fats have numerous significant capacities in the body,
      including energy stockpiling. On the off chance that glucose (a sort of
      sugar) isn't accessible for energy; the body utilizes unsaturated fats
      to fuel the cells all things being equal.

      Unhealthiness and Its Outcomes are Enormous Supporters

      Difo Voukang Harouna*

      Human nourishment manages the arrangement of fundamental
      supplements in food that are important to help human existence and
      great wellbeing. Helpless nourishment is an ongoing issue frequently
      connected to destitution, food security, or a helpless comprehension
      of healthful prerequisites. Unhealthiness and its outcomes are
      enormous supporters of passing’s, actual deformations, and
      handicaps around the world. Great nourishment is vital for kids to
      develop actually and intellectually, and for typical human organic turn
      of events. The human body contains synthetic mixtures like water,
      carbs, amino acids (found in proteins), unsaturated fats (found in
      lipids), and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA). These mixtures are made
      out of components like carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and
      phosphorus. Any investigation done to decide healthful status should
      consider the condition of the body prior and then afterward analyzes,
      just as the synthetic structure of the entire eating routine and of the
      multitude of materials discharged and killed from the body (counting
      pee and defecation).

      Around 25% of the Iron in the Body is Put Away as Ferritin, Found in Cells and Circles in the Blood

      Des R. Richardson*

      The primary job of iron in the body is in the red platelets where it
      helps convey oxygen to the body's cells and tissues. In the red
      platelets, iron consolidates with a protein called hemoglobin. At the
      point when we take in, oxygen in our lungs is drawn to the iron in
      hemoglobin, and consolidates with it to frame oxyhaemoglobin. Iron
      is significant for the legitimate working of all cells in our bodies. The
      primary job of iron in the body is in the red platelets where it helps
      convey oxygen to the body's cells and tissues. In the red platelets,
      iron joins with a protein called hemoglobin. At the point when we take
      in, oxygen in our lungs is drawn to the iron in hemoglobin, and joins
      with it to frame oxyhaemoglobin. Oxygen would then be able to be
      moved around the body by red platelets, and delivered any place it is
      required.

      Vitamin-K and its Deficiency

      J Floege*

      Nutrient K alludes to primarily comparable, fat-solvent vitamers
      found in food sources and advertised as dietary enhancements. The
      human body requires nutrient K for post-blend alteration of specific
      proteins that are needed for blood coagulation (K from coagulations,
      Danish for "coagulation") or for controlling restricting of calcium in
      bones and other tissues. The total amalgamation includes last
      change of these alleged "Gla proteins" by the compound gammaglutamyl
      carboxylase that utilizes nutrient K as a cofactor. The
      presence of uncarboxylated proteins demonstrates a nutrient K
      insufficiency. Carboxylation permits them to tie (chelate) calcium
      particles, which they can't do something else. Without nutrient K,
      blood coagulation is truly hindered, and uncontrolled draining
      happens. Examination proposes that lack of nutrient K may likewise
      debilitate bones, possibly adding to osteoporosis, and may advance
      calcification of supply routes and other delicate tissues. Nutrient K2
      or menaquinone is one of three sorts of nutrient K, the other two
      being nutrient K1 (phylloquinone) and K3. K2 is both a tissue and
      bacterial item (got from nutrient K1 in the two cases) and is typically
      found in creature items or aged foods.

      Fatty Acids and its Importance

      Irene Mackraj*

      Nutrient B6, or pyridoxine, is a water-solvent nutrient discovered
      normally in numerous food varieties, just as added to food sources
      and enhancements. Pyridoxal 5' phosphate (PLP) is the dynamic
      coenzyme structure and most normal proportion of B6 blood levels in
      the body. PLP is a coenzyme that helps in excess of 100 catalysts to
      perform different capacities, including the breakdown of proteins,
      carbs, and fats; keeping up with typical degrees of homocysteine
      (since significant levels can mess heart up); and supporting safe
      capacity and cerebrum wellbeing. Nutrient B6 has been generally
      read for its part in sickness counteraction. The nutrient in supplement
      structure shows the most guarantee for the treatment of pregnancyinitiated
      queasiness; however such use ought to just happen under
      the oversight of a doctor. Sufficient blood levels of B6 might be
      related with lower hazard of malignancies, contrasted with low blood
      levels. Notwithstanding, the utilization of independent B6
      supplements (aside from the RDA sums in run of the mill multivitamin
      arrangements) is uncertain and not suggested.

        Editorial Note on Essential Vitamins and Minerals for Health

        Srikanth

        The basic substances that our bodies need to grow and function normally are vitamins and minerals. A, C, D, E, and K are recognized vitamins, and B vitamins include: thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxal (B6), cobalamin (B12), biotin, and folate/folic acid. For health, a variety of minerals are essential: calcium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, chloride, magnesium, selenium. 'Vitamin means' essential to life. Compounds necessary for the proper functioning of our bodies are vitamins and minerals. To help us develop, to see correctly, to shape bones, muscles, skin and organs, as well as to help us combat infections, we need vitamins and minerals. Deficiencies in some minerals and vitamins can lead to serious issues. Providing a wide range of fresh foods from the five food groups, including whole grain bread and cereals, vegetables, fruit, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, nuts and legumes, and dairy products such as milk, cheese and yoghurt, is the best way to ensure your child receives enough vitamins and minerals for balanced growth and development.

        Editorial note on importance of Vitamin- D

        Sanchika kd

        Vitamins & Minerals Journal covers the information regarding Micro nutrients, Trace minerals, Probiotics, Multivitamins, Macro nutrients, Vitamin A, Vitamin B, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Beta Carotene, Flavonoids, Biotin, Folic acid, Riboflavin, Mineral density, Essential Vitamins. The Journal has a wide range of fields in its discipline to create a platform for the authors to make their contribution towards the journal. WHO declared SARS-CoV-2 a global pandemic. The present aim was to propose an hypothesis that there is a potential association between mean levels of vitamin D in various countries with cases and mortality caused by COVID-19. The mean levels of vitamin D for 20 European countries and morbidity and mortality caused by COVID-19 were acquired. Negative correlations between mean levels of vitamin D (average 56 mmol/L, STDEV 10.61) in each country and the number of COVID-19 cases/1 M (mean 295.95, STDEV 298.7, and mortality/1 M (mean 5.96, STDEV 15.13) were observed. Vitamin D levels are severely low in the aging population especially in Spain, Italy and Switzerland. This is also the most vulnerable group of the population in relation to COVID-19. It should be advisable to perform dedicated studies about vitamin D levels in COVID-19 patients with different degrees of disease severity.

          Injectable Vitamin D for Bariatric Patients Unresponsive to Oral Supplementation

          Ara Keshishian*, Terhas Asfiha Weldeslase and Miguel Rosado

          Introduction: With an increasing incidence of obesity and weight loss surgery, there is an increased awareness of vitamin D deficiency and its metabolic sequala. The conventional treatment for vitamin D deficiency is not adequate for a subset of bariatric patients, both pre-and postoperatively. Compounded injectable vitamin D is an alternative for most people who do not respond adequately to oral Vitamin D supplements after bariatric surgery.

          Method: Those patients diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency were all prescribed oral supplementations and levels rechecked in three and six months and yearly after that. Our recommendations included Vitamin D injections to those patients who had either not responded or further worsened their vitamin D levels. Repeat levels of vitamin D of both those on injection and oral supplements were rechecked. We did not include those Patients with preexisting Primary hyperparathyroidism or hypercalcemia. Their work up included medical, nutritional, and psychological evaluations, also to complete metabolic panel. At the time of the operation, all patients were older than 18 years old and younger than 67.

          Results: Between February 2011 and June 2019, 147 patients were recommended vitamin D injections since oral supplements failed to improve the serum levels. There was a significant improvement in the Serum level for those patients who received Vitamin D compared to those who continued on higher dose oral supplements.

          Conclusion: Compounded Vitamin D injections should be considered a treatment option for patients who do not respond to oral supplementations following weight loss surgery.

          Vitamin B 12 Assay: Are we on Track

          Rateesh Sareen* and G N Gupta

          Vitamin B12 assay is one of the most frequently ordered tests particularly as a part of regular medical checkups. The deficiency is rampant in vegetarian population. It is of immense importance that laboratories establish their own reference interval (RI) of analyte specially Vitamin B12 as a diagnosis of Vitamin B12 deficiency based on RI of kit insert inadvertently leads to unnecessary treatment or work up. A blind reliance on RI of kit insert should be discouraged as they do not take into account population characteristics and do not truly reflect RI specific to the population under study.

          Identification and Treatment of Hypovitaminosis-D among In-Patients Setting of Cavan General Hospital, Ireland and Its Implication on Different Health Perspectives on Quality of Life

          Ishaq-Khan MR, Muthalagu P, Yousaf A, Bashir F and Hannan K

          Aim: : People who are at risk of developing vitamin D deficiency are not usually tested for vitamin D when present to hospital. The aim of this study was to explore the incidence of Hypovitaminosis-D and its treatment in admitted patient category of Cavan General Hospital, Ireland. Methods: This is a cross sectional study which was conducted randomly among admitted patients in medicine department at CGH from August 2016 to August 2017. A random data was collected from total of 100 patients. All blood samples were stored and labeled properly in the CGH Hematology lab till further blood profile analyzed. Data was statistically analyzed through using DSAASTAT (Onofri, Italy). Results: Selected population of 100 patients expressed almost equal numbers in gender distribution including males and females at 51% and 49% respectively. The data was analyzed on the basis of age and gender distribution. Selected Population was divided in 3 age groups. There were 9 patients under the age-group of 30-50 years, 47 of 51-80 years and 44 of >80 years age-group. Among these patients, males comprised of 57% with hypovitaminosis D (vitamin D deficiency) and females were 43% respectively. Out of these 100 patients, 33 people were recorded with normal vitamin D level and 67 patients found to have low vitamin D level. These 67 patients with low vitamin D levels were selected for treatment with vitamin D as per guidelines. Out of these 67 patients, unfortunately 3 people died, 11 lost their follow up, so remaining 53 patients participated in receiving treatments. Out of those 53 patients with low vitamin D, there were 29 males and 24 females. After receiving treatment with vitamin D, 40 people ± 0.0001 recovered, showing vitamin D level >30 nmol/L, 9 patients ± 0.0002 found mildly deficient with vitamin D levels between 21-30 nmol/L and 4 patients ± 0.0003 were severely deficient with levels of <10 nmol/L. All those people with severe deficiency were more than 80 years-of-age and also were not sure about their compliance with medications. The probability value was p ≤ 0.05. Conclusion: This study was conducted to determine hypovitaminosis D (Vitamin D deficiency) in population, admitted to hospital with previous comorbid medical conditions which are prone to develop its deficiency. This study showed that 67% population has hypovitaminosis D with almost equal percentage in both genders. After receiving treatments with Vitamin D replacement, almost majority (>90%) showed recovery of vitamin D levels with very small number (8%) showed persistent severely low levels.

          Vitamins & Minerals: Path to Improved Health

          Vitamins & Minerals

          Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals found in food that help to nourish and sustain your health. They are essential for your overall well-being. The best way for your body to get what it needs to be balanced is to eat foods rich in vitamins and minerals every day. However, studies consistently show that most Americans' diets are deficient in vitamins and minerals. Adult Americans, according to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), do not get enough of the following nutrients: Magnesium, fibre, calcium, potassium, Vitamins A, C, D, and E all contain. Try to incorporate more of these nutrients in your daily diet. It’s best to get these nutrients through food, instead of just taking a multivitamin. This is because it is easier for your body to absorb micronutrients through food. Calcium is a mineral that is present in, it is needed for the development of strong bones and teeth in childhood and adolescence. Calcium is necessary to maintain bone mass as an adult. According to the USDA, the average American adult can consume 1,136 milligrammes of calcium per day (based on a 2,000-calorie diet).

              Role of Vitamin C Supplements for Health

              Alan M. Diamond

              Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It's involved in many body functions, including formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the proper functioning of the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. Good sources of vitamin C: citrus fruit, such as oranges and orange juice, peppers, strawberries, blackcurrants,broccoli, brussels sprouts, potatoes. Vitamin C is a vital nutrient for health. It helps form and maintain bones, skin, and blood vessels. It is also an antioxidant.Vitamin C occurs naturally in some foods, especially fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C supplements are also available.Other names for vitamin C include L-ascorbic acid, ascorbic acid, and L-ascorbate. Vitamin C is water soluble, and the body does not store it. To maintain adequate levels of vitamin C, people need to consume food that contains it every day.

              Scenario of Vitamins and Minerals in Present Days

              Okhee Han

              Since ancient civilization, humans have applied mining techniques when mining rocks and minerals on Earth’s surface. The importance of minerals in our everyday lives can be recognized all around us. From eating nutrient-rich foods to powering smartphones with copper, almost everything we use is a mineral resource. Here are a few common ways we use minerals today.

              Impact on Lack of Vitamins and Minerals in Daily Life

              Eric J. Sorenson

              Vitamins and minerals are essential nutrients because they perform hundreds of roles in the body. There is a fine line between getting enough of these nutrients (which is healthy) and getting too much (which can end up harming you). Eating a healthy diet remains the best way to get sufficient amounts of the vitamins and minerals you need. Every day, your body produces skin, muscle, and bone. It churns out rich red blood that carries nutrients and oxygen to remote outposts, and it sends nerve signals skipping along thousands of miles of brain and body pathways. It also formulates chemical messengers that shuttle from one organ to another, issuing the instructions that help sustain your life. Vitamins and minerals are considered essential nutrients—because acting in concert, they perform hundreds of roles in the body. They help shore up bones, heal wounds, and bolster your immune system. They also convert food into energy, and repair cellular damage.

              Okhee Han

              Mined minerals are an important part of human nutrition. Iron, manganese, selenium, and calcium all provide day-to-day nutrients that the body needs in order to function. Foods that are full of micronutrients (or vitamins and minerals) can help strengthen cells, fight against harmful viruses, and boost the immune system. Mineralsâ?¯can be found in many of the products that we know and love. In fact, we use or consume more than 25 minerals daily.

                Fat Soluble Vitamins and its Significance

                Benjamin U Nwosu

                Fats are the body's most concentrated source of energy (37kJ/g). They also help to absorb fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E, and K, as well as other fat-soluble biologically active components. Because they are soluble in organic solvents and are absorbed and transported in a way comparable to fats, vitamins A, D, E, and K are known as fat-soluble vitamins. Vision, bone health, immunological function, and coagulation are just a few of the physiological processes that fat-soluble vitamins play a part in. The biochemistry, transport, and functions of these vitamins are discussed in this review, with a focus on deficient disorders and potential toxicities. They absorb in the lymph, are transported in the circulation via carrier proteins, and can be stored in the liver and fatty tissues since they are fat soluble.

                Calcium Deficiency in Body: Hypocalcemia

                Michael J. Gonzalez

                Calcium is a mineral that is necessary for life. In addition to building bones and keeping them healthy, calcium enables our blood to clot, our muscles to contract, and our heart to beat. About 99% of the calcium in our bodies is in our bones and teeth. Every day, we lose calcium through our skin, nails, hair, sweat, urine and feces. Our bodies cannot produce its own calcium. That’s why it’s important to get enough calcium from the food we eat. When we don’t get the calcium our body needs, it is taken from our bones. This is fine once in a while, but if it happens too often, bones get weak and easier to break.
