swelling of mouth & throat, dry/cracked lips, inflammation of mucous throat, membrane of the mouth; magenta tongue; anemia, dermatitis membrane Sources of Riboflavin: • milk, sensitive to light • • opaque containers protect riboflavin from light other sources: eggs, meats, milk & milk products, broccoli, cereals Niacin • Component of NAD + and NAD and NADP+ • DNA replication/repair & cell differentiation • RDA: men 16 mg/day // women 14mg/day • Toxicity: flushing, liver damage, glucose intolerance, blurred vision, eye edema • Deficiency: Pellagra (this is a disease of 3 Ds, dermatitis rough skin, diarrhea and dementia), pigmented rash, vomiting, constipation, bright red tongue, apathy, depression, headache, fatigue, memory loss Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) • part of coenzyme PLP • metabolism of homocysteine • RDA: 19-50 year old: men & women 1.3 mg/day • 51 years and older men 1.7 mg/day // women 1.5 mg/day • Toxicity: sensory neuropathy, skin lesions, deficiency: dermatitis, microcytic anemia, convulsions, depression & confusion • Sources: Halibut, tuna Folate • • • • • B12 • • • • Coenzyme THF or THFA involved in DNA synthesis & amino acid metabolism Metabolism of homocysteine RDA: men & women = 400 mg/day Toxicity: masking of symptoms of Vitamin B12 deficiency, neurological damage Deficiency: macrocytic anemia, weakness & fatigue, difficulty concentrating, irritability, headache, palpitations, shortness of breath, elevated levels of homocysteine, neural tube defects headache, in developing fetus in Coenzyme involved in formation of blood, nervous system function & homocysteine metabolism RDA: men & women = 2.4 micrograms/day toxicity: none Deficiency: pernicious anemia, pale skin, diminished energy, fatigue, shortness of breath, diminished palpitations, tingling and numbness in extremities, abnormal gait, poor concentration, palpitations, disorientation, dementia Pantothenic acid Pantothenic • • • • component of coA that assists with fatty acid metabolism RDA: men & women 5 mg/day no known toxicity deficiency: rare Sources of B Vitamins • mushrooms very high Biotin • • • • Compoenent of coenzymes involved in CHO, fat & protein metabolism RDA: men & women 30 micrograms/day Toxicity: none known Deficiency: red, scaly skin rash, depression, lethargy, hallucinations, burning, tingling, tickling sensations Enriched ready-to eat Cereals • Good sources of B-complex vitamins • % DRI (dietary reference intakes) DRI intakes) Thiamin 125% Riboflavin 131% Niacin 125% Vitamin B6 154% Folate 168% Pantothenic acid 198% Total Ceral =) Minerals in Energy Metabolism • Iron = component of hemoglobin (blood) and myoglobin(muscle) – carries and delivers oxygen Iron myoglobin(muscle) • Iodine = critical component of thyroid hormones → regulate human metabolism Iodine regulate • Chromium = plays important role in CHO metabolism • Manganese = cofactor involved in CHO, fat and protein metabolism Manganese protein • Sulfur = component of the B-complex vitamins thiamin and biotin Sulfur thiamin Iron • RDA ◦ Men 19 years and older 8 mg/day ◦ Women 19-50 years old 18 mg/day ◦ 51 and older 8 mg/day ◦ Pregnant 27 mg/day • Too little → iron deficiency anemia (pale skin, fatigue, reduced work performance, impaired immune & cognitive response • Too much--> constipation, GI stress Iron Sources • Clams – canned, Cereals Kellogg, Soybean, Pork & beans – canned, Tomato paste, Lentils, Spinach, Beef Worldwide deficiencies in vitamins and minerals are recognized: • Iron, Iodine, Zn, Vit A Summary • B-complex vitamins are components of coenzymes that are involved in metabolic pathways to B-complex coenzymes produce energy produce • Certain minerals are also involved in energy metabolism Certain metabolism ...
