Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant essential for cellular life, collagen formation, it promotes the maximum use of other anti-oxidants. Involved in all cellular and water-soluble oxidation phenomena, it is destroyed in the body by food toxins, pollution, stress, oral contraceptives, alcohol and tobacco.
Vitamin B1 (thiamine, its discovery dates back to 1910) is important for carbohydrate metabolism, it participates in the breakdown of alcohol by the liver and is important for the proper functioning of the nervous system. It is one of the water-soluble vitamins.
The need for vitamin B1 is proportional to the carbohydrate and energy intake of the diet.
Its role : Once assimilated, thiamine is transformed in the liver into thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), which is the active form of vitamin B1.
-TPP is essential for the activity of several enzymes. In particular, it allows the production of energy from carbohydrates (sugars). -It also participates in the degradation of alcohol. Vitamin B1 is essential for the proper functioning of the brain and the entire nervous system , which essentially use carbohydrates as a means of fuel. -It is also important for the muscles. -TPP is also used to develop thiamine triphosphate, which is a neuromediator.
Vitamin B1 interacts in the body with other vitamins of group B : B2, PP or B3, B5, B6, B9.
The recommended intake should therefore be increased from 0.5 to 1.5 mg per day in athletes.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin), is part of water-soluble vitamins. Its discovery dates back to 1933, when it was isolated in milk. It is necessary for the manufacture of many enzymes. Derivatives of this vitamin are involved in the breakdown of fatty acids, amino acids and proteins.
Within the body, low reserves exist in the liver, heart and kidneys. Once assimilated, vitamin B2 is incorporated into the structure of two coenzymes (FMN and FAD), essential for the activity of more than one hundred enzymes.
Among these enzymes are : Acyl-coA dehydrogenase (involved in burning fat for energy purposes), glutathione reductase (which is used to regenerate glutathione, a powerful antioxidant).
Vitamin B2thus contributes to the metabolism of carbohydrates (sugars), lipids (fats) and proteins.
It is involved in the production of keratin, a protein that gives strength and is indispensable to hair, nails and skin.
It also intervenes in the vision.
It interacts with vitamins B3 and B6.
Vitamin B3 (PP, *Nicotinamide) is involved in the breakdown of glucose, it is also water-soluble. It is derived from nicotinic acid (another form of vitamin PP) by amidation
The term *niacin includes two neighboring compounds :
nicotinic acid and nicotinamide, both of which have identical biological activity.
Its deficiency leads to a disease called pellagra with skin, digestive and nervous problems.
It can be ingested directly as niacin in food or produced by the body from tryptophan, an amino acid (which makes up proteins).
In the liver, vitamin B3 is incorporated into the structure of two coenzymes (NAD and NADP), essential for the activity of many enzymes.
In these forms, it participates in the production of energy within cells, in the manufacture of different lipids and their derivatives : bile salts (essential to digest fats well), steroid hormones (corticosteroids, estrogens, testosterone ...).
It also makes it possible to repair DNA in the event that it is damaged.
It intervenes in the functioning of the nervous system.
Vitamin B3 interacts with other B vitamins, including B1 and B2
