Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) is the anti-anaemic substance or factor absorbed by the villi of the small intestine and stored in the liver. It is satisfactorily absorbed only in the presence of intrinsic factor produced by the cells in the lining of the stomach. Vitamin B12 is essential for the proper development of red cells in the red bone marrow and of nervous tissue. Folic acid is required in the body for the maturation of red blood cells. It is derived from green vegetables. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is water soluble and is found in citrus fruits (oranges, grapefruits and lemons), green vegetables and potatoes.

Cod liver oil and halibut liver oil are very rich in vitamin D. Vitamin D can also be built up in the body; the ultraviolet rays from the sun act on a fatty substance in the skin called ergosterol, which produces vitamin D. Vitamin D is necessary, with calcium, for the formation of bone. Lack of vitamin D and/ or calcium leads to rickets in childhood, osteomalacia and osteoporosis in adults.
