Vitamin B1 (Thiamin), 500 mg 100 capsules
- Helps maintain energy level*
- Supports nervous system function*
- Promotes proper heart function*
Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, was one of the first organic compounds to be recognized as a vitamin. Like all the other B complex vitamins, it is water soluble and not stored in the body. Rather, excess amounts of B1 will be excreted. And like the other B vitamins, it helps the body convert the foods we eat into usable fuel to maintain life-sustaining functions.
Vitamin B1 must be in adequate supply for aerobic energy production to take place. This is the process in which sugar (glucose) is converted into usable energy.
Vitamin B1 also plays roles in the nervous system. It promotes the healthy development of myelin sheaths, the material that surrounds and protects most nerves. Insufficient vitamin B1 intake can result in degradation and damage to the myelin sheath. Symptoms such as pain, prickly sensation, and deadened nerves may be linked to a vitamin B1 deficiency.*
Thiamine is needed for the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that relays messages between the nerves and the muscles. Acetylcholine’s importance in maintaining muscle tone makes vitamin B1 a significant nutrient in maintaining proper heart function because the heart is a muscle whose performance is vital to human life.*
Absorption of vitamin B1 requires sufficient supplies of vitamin B6, B12, and folic acid.
