Why are Vitamins Important?


Vitamins are micronutrients which help perform important functions in our body. The most essential vitamins needed by our body are vitamin A, C, D, E, K and a group of B-complex vitamins. Special Kid full range, please click here.


Vitamin A is required to make a pigment called Rhodopsin in our eyes. Rhodopsin helps us to see in low light conditions. Thus, without vitamin A, rhodopsin won’t be produced, causing night-blindness.


Vitamin C and E are antioxidants. Unstable free radicals damage our cell’s DNA, leading to illness or cancer. Vitamin C and E neutralize the free radicals, preventing cell damage.



Vitamin D helps our body absorb calcium to build strong bones. Thus, lack of vitamin D can lead to a condition called rickets which is characterized by weak, soft bones.

During an injury, vitamin K helps the blood clot, thus preventing excessive bleeding.


Lastly, B-complex vitamins are essential for healthy functioning of our brain and nervous system.
