Bari Life Vitamin B-1 100 mg - 100 Tablets/Bottle
Vitamin B-1 (thiamine) is a water-soluble vitamin necessary for the conversion of fats, carbohydrates and amino acids into energy. It ensures proper nerve impulse transmission and has a beneficial effect on mental attitude. Vitamin B-1 is needed for the body's manufacture of hydrochloric acid for digestion. Vitamin B-1 may be in short supply in your diet due to foods that lack it due to processing as cooking also removes it, diets high in fats and sugar, the overuse of alcohol or dieting and fasting.
Vitamin B-1 is reputed to be a mosquito and insect repellent when 100 mg or more is taken daily. Vitamin B-1 may improve digestive muscle tone, and even improve dental post-operative and dry socket pain and healing. There is no toxicity to taking extra Vitamin B-1.
Take one tablet daily or as directed by your health-care professional.
Signs and symptoms of a Thiamine (Vitamin B-1) deficiency include excessive vomiting, loss of appetite, weakness, sleepiness, burning feet, calf and leg pain, abdominal pain, constipation, headache, and cramping. It is especially important to evaluate thiamine deficiency in patients presenting with neuropathy and normal B-12 status.
More About B Vitamins
As co-enzymes, the B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important role in energy production, including the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. B vitamins are also important for blood cells, hormones, and nervous system function. As water-soluble substances, B vitamins are not generally stored in the body in any appreciable amounts (with the exception of vitamin B-12).
Therefore, the body needs an adequate supply of B vitamins on a daily basis. Thiamine (Vitamin B-1) is an essential coenzyme in energy production. Thiamine is converted quickly into thiamine pyrophosphate, which is required for glycolytic and Krebs cycle reactions. Thiamine also appears to be related to nerve impulse transmission.
No adverse side effects have been reported.
