Health Benefits of Thiamine



Thiamine or vitamin B1 assists in converting carbohydrates into energy. It is essential for healthy heart, brain, and nerve function. Thiamine can be found in enriched grain products, meat, beans, nuts, and whole grains.

One of eight B vitamins, thiamine helps to produce blood cells, maintain healthy skin, regulate metabolism, and maintain the nervous system.

Symptoms of thiamine deficiency include fatigue, irritability, depression and abdominal discomfort.

People with thiamine deficiency also have difficulty digesting carbohydrates, which can lead to a build-up of pyruvic acid in the bloodstream. This condition, called beriberi, causes a loss of mental alertness, breathing issues, and heart damage. Signs of beriberi include swelling, tingling, burning sensations in the hands and feet, confusion, breathing issues, and uncontrolled eye movements.

Thiamine is a common staple in many of today’s natural health supplements.
