Vitamin B1 also known as Thiamin or Aneurin is required by the body to convert carbohydrates into energy. Thiamin helps your body:
- resist depression & anxiety
- convert food into energy.
- keep your heart beating regularly
- maintain brain & nervous function
Thiamin containing foods lose much of their nutritional value if they are refrigerated, or come in contact with food preservatives. It is available in many foods, but is water soluble, and is washed out of the body when drinking alcohol, tea or coffee.
Absorption of thiamin relies on getting enough vitamin B6, vitamin B12, and folic acid.
Vitamin B1 Deficiency Symptoms Include:
- Poor concentration
- Weakness and muscle pains
- Numbness and prickling in legs
- Water retention
- Nausea and stomach pains
