Vitamins are organic substances that are indispensable to the normal metabolic processes of animals. Vitamins are required in very small amounts and are classified as micronutrients. They are essential to maintain health and performance, and have to be supplied as part of the overall diet.
A deficiency or complete lack of one or more vitamins may lead to multiple metabolic malfunctions, possibly resulting in reduced performance, sub-optimal growth, fertility problems or diseases and possibly death. Furthermore, an increased supply of certain vitamins can have positive effects on health and general wellbeing (Fefana, 2014)
