Thiamine Hydrochloride (Vitamin B1)

Vitamin B1, also called thiamine or thiamin, is one of 8 B vitamins. All the B vitamins help the body convert food into fuel. These B complex vitamins also help the body metabolize fats and protein and are necessary for healthy skin, hair, eyes, and liver. They also help the nervous system function and are necessary for optimal brain health.

All the B vitamins are water-soluble. This means the body does not store them.

Thiamine is named B1 because it was the first B vitamin discovered. It's found in plants and animals and plays a crucial role in certain metabolic reactions. It's required for the body to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy.

Thiamine deficiency is rare, but can occur when a person gets most of their calories from sugar or alcohol. People deficient in thiamine can experience fatigue, irritability, depression and abdominal discomfort. People with thiamine deficiency also have difficulty digesting carbohydrates. As a result, a substance called pyruvic acid builds up in their bloodstream, causing a loss of mental alertness, difficulty breathing, and even heart damage.

Most foods contain small amounts of thiamine. Large amounts are found in pork and organ meats. Other good dietary sources of thiamine include whole-grain or enriched cereals and rice, legumes, wheat germ, bran, brewer's yeast, and blackstrap molasses. Thiamine is easily destroyed when exposed to heat, so cooking acan reduce thiamine levels in food.
