Little Known Vitamins: Their Health Benefits and Functionality

Information of Vitamin T, P, F , and N and their health benefits. What Vitamins helps your bodily systems to function at optimal health?

When you think of Vitamins, many people call to mind the usual run of the mill Vitamins or essential vitamins that your body need but cannot make. Not much is known about the listed Vitamins, but they do play a significant role in your over all health and well being.

Vitamin T (torulitine)

Very little is known about Vitamin T, originally isolated from termites as a complex growth factor is reported to promote excess growth in insects and improve the protein uptake in rats. Vitamin T seems to ward off certain forms of anemia and hemophilia by helping the blood coagulation and the formation of blood platelets by strengthening the red blood cells, and insures proper function of the nervous system. It is reported to be valuable in restoring health to patients suffering with anemia and may improve memory and poor concentration by helping to keep the brained energized... Vitamin T is the only Vitamin that regulates metabolism of carbohydrates, protein, and fats

Good food Sources

Vitamin T is naturally derived from the yolks of eggs, fungi, sesame seeds, termites, and yeasts.

Deficiency symptoms

Anemia, slow healing, deterioration of vascular tone of veins, hemophilia, decreased blood clotting, decreased memory and nerve regeneration, decreased productivity of blood platelets. Decreased mental health, appetite, protein utilization, immunity, resistance to colds, shortened life span, fatigue.

Not being recognized as a vitamin—or even as an important health supplement—by many medical experts poses some difficulties for those wishing to factor Vitamin T into a diet. All vitamins have a recommended dietary

Vitamin P (Bioflavonoids)

Vitamin P, named for its permeability, is now known as bioflavonoids, water-soluble plant pigments, necessary for the proper function and absorption of Vitamin C. Discovered by Scientist Albert Szent-Gyorgi in 1936, Vitamin P was extracted and isolated from red peppers and lemon juice, and was believed to be more effective in the treatment of vascular fragility than ascorbic acids.

Vitamin P is naturally occurring chemical compounds that are important to maintaining optimal health. Since then, over 4000 bioflavonoids have been identified and scientists believe that many more will be discovered in the future

Good food Sources

Enjoy your favorite Green tea or Red wine knowing that you are getting your Vitamin P

Vegetables: green peppers and broccoli, the best source of Vitamin P.

Fruits: Citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, limes and tangerines as well as grapes, red and blackberries, apricots, tomatoes and cherries.

Grain: Buckwheat is a major source of Vitamin P

Deficiency Symptoms

Fragile blood vessels, easy bruising, nose bleeds, aggregation of blood cells, predisposition for blood clots, decreased Vitamin C availability, decreased Vitamin A absorption, decreased levels of epinephrine, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, decreased antiviral activity, decreased frostbite resistance.

Alpha-Lipoic Acid (Thioctic Acid, Vitamin N)

Vitamin N, reported to inhibit cancer is an antioxidant that is manufactured in the human body and can be found in stomach extracts, brains of animals, and internal synthesis. It is used in cases of liver deterioration and for amanita poisoning (poisonous mushrooms).

Alpha-lipoic acid(lipoic acid) is a universal anti-oxidant: it works in both fatty and watery regions of cells to deactivate an unusually wide range of cell damaging free radicals in many of your bodily systems such as waste products created when the body turns food into energy as well as environmental exposure to ultraviolet rays, radiation, and toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke, car exhaust, and pesticides. Free radicals cause harmful chemical reactions that can damage cells in the body, making it harder for the body to fight off infections. As a result a person becomes more susceptible to long term diseases such as diabetes and liver damage. It also helps to recycle other antioxidants, including vitamin E and vitamin C.

Deficiency Symptoms

Fatigue, decreased ATP production, decreased muscle strength, increased cholesterol levels, and decreased cancer resistance.


Vitamin F (Essential Fatty Acids)

A fat soluble vitamin composed of unsaturated fatty acids (linoleic, linolenic, and arachidonic) obtained from foods. Vitamin F helps burn saturated fats as long as the intake is balanced 2-1 (2 unsaturated fat to 1 saturated), thereby aiding in weight reduction. If sufficient linoleic acid is available, the other two fatty acids, linolenic and arachidonic, can be synthesized. Vitamin F can be destroyed by an oversupply of saturated fats, heat, and oxygen and the consumption of large amounts of carbohydrates. Although most nuts are good sources of unsaturated fatty acids, Brazil nuts and cashews are not.

Deficiency Symptoms:

Growth stops, eczema, acne, dry skin, dandruff, dry, dull, brittle, thinning hair, soft, brittle, flaking nails, dry eyes and mouth, diarrhea, allergies, varicose veins, decreased/increased weight, gallstones, decreased resistance to radiation, heart disease, cancers, deterioration of skin integrity, sterility, swollen joints, deterioration of the liver, fatigue, emotional agitation, decreased immunity, and T-cell count.
