Abstract

The functions of vitamins and selected vitamin-like biofactors are summarized. Basic mechanisms of actions are described that are important to an understanding of the deficiency signs or symptoms that are observed when such compounds are limiting in the diet of animals. With respect to given biofactors, primary and secondary metabolites that are present in diets, compounds with definable health-related functions are highlighted. Particular attention is given to secondary metabolites that influence oxidative metabolism and mitochondrial function.
