Highest concentration of thiamin
lean pork, ham, Brazil nut
required for amino acid metabolism and conversion niacin to tryptophan
- Vit D
- -promotes mineralization of bones by promoting absorption of calcium.
- -Increases the absorption of calcium by the kidney and maintains normal blood levels of calcium
Conversion of Calciferol when skin exposed to sunligh
- natural hormone in the skin
- 7-dihydry vitamin ----> Cholecalciferol when to sunlight
Plant form of Vit D
- Vit A
- -Maintains integrity of skin and epithelial tissue, required for night vision and growth.
- -Regulates structure/function of cellular/subcellular membranes.
- -Bone/tooth formation, and plays role in immune reactions.
Transport form of Vit A
Active form of Vitamin A
Vit A stored in the liver as
an ester, vitamin A acetate
- Vit E
- -protect membranes and RBC from oxidative damage or breakdown by inactivating free radicals.
- -oxidative protection of Vit A
- -protects RBC WBC and improves immune response
-required for the syntheiss of blood clotting factors such as prothrombin ond other proteins
Found in green plants
formed by bacterial action in the GI tract
Synthetic form and most biologically reactive
- necessary for blood coagulation, muscle function, transmission of nerve impulses, regulation of cell permeability.
- -Calcium homeostasis- if blood Ca levels fall, vit D, parathrome and calcitonin aid in regulation.
Cl, Na, K
aid in regulation of fluid balance, acid/base balance and cell membrane transfer
- makes insulin action more effective and aids in glucose homeostasis.
- -role in CHO and fat metabolism
- -part of enzymes necessary for RBC syntheis
- -required for iron absorption in the form of hemoglobin.
prevents dental carries by improving teeth and bone strength
-synthesis of thyroxine in the thyroid gland
hormone that regulates cellular oxidation and basal metabolism
In foods, iron is found in what form
iron is stored as

Pancreatic and intestinal protease
Digestion of FAT in small intestine
Bile, pancreatic lipase
Digestion in Large Intestines
intestinal bacteria produce Vit K and absorbed here. Water absorption
- cell concentration > lumen
- -Glucose and amino acids pumped thru membrane this way
- process of free transfer of substances across membrane to reach equilibrium.
- Sodium follows water passively
movement of nutrients across membrane from high to low concentration
Carrier mediated diffusion
a carrier shuttles nutrients across membrane
membrane engulfs particles. some whole proteins enter this way.
