Prohormone & Supplement Ingredients:

Thiamine Mononitrate (Vitamin B1)

A water-soluble component of the B vitamin complex found particularly in pork, organ meats, legumes, nuts, and whole grain or enriched breads and cereals. The active form is thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP the active form of thiamine, serving as a coenzyme in a variety of reactions, particularly in carbohydrate metabolism), which serves as a coenzyme in various reactions. Deficiency can result in beriberi and is a factor in alcoholic neuritis and Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Also written also thiamin.

Thiamine plays a key role in the metabolic breakdown of glucose to yield energy in body tissues. It isn't stored in the body and must be supplied through diet. A deficiency mainly affects the nervous system, circulation, and the GI tract.

The RDA in most countries is set at about 1.4mg for an adult. However, tests on female volunteers at daily doses of about 50 mg have claimed an increase in mental acuity. There are no reports available of adverse effects from consumption of excess thiamine by ingestion of food and supplements. Because the data is inadequate for a quantitative risk assessment, no Tolerable Upper Intake Level (UL) can be derived.
