Vitamins deficiency can cause a disease or syndrome known as an avitaminosis or hypovitaminosis. This usually refers to a long-term deficiency of a vitamin. When caused by inadequate nutrition it can be classed as a primary deficiency, and when due to an underlying disorder such as malabsorption it can be classed as a secondary deficiency. An underlying disorder may be metabolic as in a defect converting tryptophan to niacin. It can also be the result of lifestyle choices including smoking and alcohol consumption.
With our current lifestyle, we are less bothered about the food intake we do in our daily routine. The food is high in fats, preserved and sometimes unhygienic. This unhealthy, unbalanced diet results in certain deficiencies. One of which is of vitamins. Vitamins are considered to be essential nutrients because they perform hundreds of roles in our body like they help in healing wounds, bolster immune system and shore up bones. They also repair cellular damage and convert food into energy.
