How vitamins are made. Production secrets

Synthetic vitamins are preparations obtained by chemical means. These medications are produced by the pharmaceutical industry using special technologies.

Thanks to modern production methods, it is possible to obtain high-quality preparations that are perfectly absorbed by the body, in which all the beneficial properties of natural vitamins are fully preserved.

How vitamins are made. Production secrets

Examples. B vitamins are made from natural raw materials (extracted from a natural source). Manufacturers apply innovative synthesis of microorganisms. Ascorbic acid is isolated from natural sugars (glucose), and chokeberry and citrus fruits are used in the manufacture of vitamin P. To obtain high biological activity, special substances are added to vitamin preparations.

For example, ascorbic acid is made with the addition of:

  • bioflavonoids;
  • routine;
  • tyrosinase;
  • ascorbinogen and other substances in certain proportions.

Vitamin preparations are modified by pharmaceutical companies, which is necessary for their better absorption in the body. For example, vitamin C is offered as calcium ascorbate. This substance is not as acidic as ascorbic acid. Not everyone can take ascorbic acid. People with diseases of the digestive system who are diagnosed with increased acidity of gastric juice after taking ascorbic acid suffer from heartburn, and calcium ascorbate is taken without problems.

Nicotinic acid (vitamin PP) in some patients leads to allergic reactions. Now, for such patients, special vitamin complexes with nicotinamide have been developed, which do not give allergies and can be taken by a large number of people of different ages.
