Among the many nutrients needed to make our bodies function at their best, THIAMIN/THIAMINE, whichever you prefer, is often overlooked. Also known as Vitamin B1, thiamin is an extremely important part of the energy produced from carbohydrates, in addition to the protein and fat metabolism in our bodies. It works to keep our systems operating properly and in harmony with one another… I’d say that is pretty important!
Symptoms of a Vitamin B1deficiency include fatigue, both physical and mental. This makes sense because of Vitamin B1’s responsibility to create energy at a cellular level. Every single cell in our bodies make use of ATP (energy), so it is imperative to remain in check with B1 levels (niftybenefits). Serious deficiencies can become detrimental to development:
- Motor functions
- Learning disabilities
- Nerve problems
Since B complex deficiencies are similar to each other, it can be difficult to detect when you are deficient in Vitamin B1 specifically. Beware: supplementing with another B vitamin can mask certain symptoms of another B vitamin deficiency, making someone think they are no longer deficient (niftybenefits). A physician should always be consulted before taking any supplements for these reasons. Be conscious of the following because it might just mean a thiamin deficiency.
- Confusion and memory loss
- Emotional instability/psychosis
- Heart palpitations
- Extreme weight loss, problems with appetite
Thiamin can help prevent kidney damage in people who have type 2 diabetes. It also shows potential to prevent cataracts and some genetic disorders (livestrong). Including Vitamin B1in a supplement can do a whole lot: prevent fatigue, boost not only energy, but confidence because of its effect on the nervous and muscular systems. Here’s a quick list of the areas this nutrient benefits most:
- Immune System
- Vascular Health
- Nervous System
