Thiamine‚ also known as vitamin B1‚ transforms the proteins‚ fats‚ and carbohydrates taken from food into energy. This vitamin plays a critical role in energy metabolism and in the growth, development, and function of cells. Thiamine is an essential dietary component for the proper functioning of your skeletal system‚ muscles‚ heart‚ and brain‚ all of which require a considerable amount of energy.
Low levels of thiamine can develop as a result of crash dieting‚ tube-feeding‚ excessive alcohol consumption‚ and a diet heavy on processed foods. Individuals who follow a high-carb diet‚ are taking a long-term course of antibiotics‚ or who take oral contraceptives may be at risk of thiamine deficiency. Symptoms of thiamine deficiency can include fatigue/lack of energy‚ loss of appetite‚ poor digestion‚ and long-term constipation.
In addition to thiamine, this supplement contains calcium‚ a mineral that promotes strong bones and teeth while helping nerve cells send messages to each other, and phosphorus, an essential mineral that supports nervous system communication.
