No. A vitamin is one of a group of organic compounds that is essential for normal growth and nutrition. Vitamins are required in small quantities in the diet because they cannot be synthesized by the body. Minerals are inorganic compounds that are also required in small amounts for proper bodily function.
Micronutrients are vitamins and minerals. Consuming adequate amounts of micronutrients can prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies, which are often precursors to more serious diseases. Vitamins have roles in blood clotting, protein metabolism, antioxidant defenses, immune function and bone function. Minerals have functions in growth and development, nerve impulses and blood pressure regulation, to name a few.
