Vitamin B1 (Thiamine)
What is Vitamin B1?
Vitamin B1, also called thiamine or thiamin, is one of eight essential B vitamins. Thiamine, like all B vitamins, is essential for helping the body convert foods into fuel, which the body uses to produce energy. Vitamin B1 is also believed to help strengthen the immune system and help the body endure stressful situations. Thiamine can be found in both plant and animal sources and is present in many foods. The best sources of thiamine include meats, wheat germ, nuts and whole grain foods. B vitamins are water soluble meaning they cannot be stored in the body. Unused quantities are excreted from the body. It can be difficult to ensure you are consuming enough with diet alone for this reason, supplementation may be necessary.
