The Newest on Water-Soluble Vitamins
Vitamin B1 – Thiamine (Water-Soluble)
Nutrients in Food
Romaine Lettuce, Asparagus,
Crimini Mushrooms, Spinach,
Nutrient inhibiting factors:
Alcohol, tobacco, stress, refined foods and drinks, processing, cooking, antibiotics, tannin, caffeine, antacids
Sufficient daily intake of vitamin B1 is required for the health of the immune system
Deficiency can result in damage to nerve endings, sciatica, muscle cramps, poor coordination, tiredness, lack of concentration, and compromised learning ability
B1 is essential for the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which activates muscle action
Alcohol depletes the reserves of this vitamin; excess alcohol intake can increase the need for B1 by a factor of 10 to 100
The process of digestion is dependent on B1
Deficiency can lead to loss of appetite, anorexia, accumulation of fat in the arteries, constipation, and stomach ulcers
Vital for children’s growth because it helps to increase their appetite and enhances the absorption of nutrients from food
Essential to increase the intake of B1 during pregnancy and lactation, and is vital for adult fertility
Thiamine increases oxygen absorption within blood, which promotes mental function and physical activity
Intake of caffeine, antibiotics, and the contraceptive pill deplete vitamin B1 by acting as diuretics, which remove water-soluble vitamins
