Thiamine - Vitamin B1

(Aneurine)


Thiamine is a water-soluble B-complex vitamin that is unstable in the presence of heat, air, and water. It is essential for carbohydrate metabolism through its coenzyme functions and also plays a role in the conduction of nerve impulses and in aerobic metabolism.

Thiamine is not stored in the body in large amounts and therefore must be supplied daily through diet. Older people absorb thiamine less efficiently.

 

FOOD SOURCES

Asparagus, spirulina, brewer's yeast, dairy products, poultry, meat and offal, salmon, brown rice, dried legumes, gotu kola, wheat germ, whole grain, pulses, nuts and seeds.

SUPPLEMENTATION

Thiamine hydrochloride, thiamine mononitrate, aneurine mononitrate, beta-hydroxy-ethylthiazolium chloride as a part of a B-complex preparation.

SIGNS OF DEFICIENCY

Appetite loss, beriberi, constipation, depression, difficulty concentrating, enlarged heart, fatigue, gastrointestinal disorders, hypersensitivity, memory loss, mental confusion, muscle weakness or paralysis, nausea, polyneuritis, rapid heartbeat, vomiting. Eating sugar, smoking, and drinking alcohol or carbonated drinks depletes thiamine in the body.

SIGNS OF TOXICITY

There are no known toxic effects at moderate doses, however, large doses may cause B-complex imbalances.

DAILY REQUIREMENT

Approx. 10-30mg
