Vitamin B1 (thiamin) plays an important role in carbohydrate- and animo acid metabolism.
Vitamin B6 functions as a coenzyme and is essential in the protein metabolism, thereby synthesizing, transforming or degrading animo acids.
Ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) plays an important role in hydroxylation reactions, i.e. in the synthesis of collagen.
Decreased Vitamin K1 levels can be found in osteoporotic patients and patients with clotting disorders.
