Vitamin B1 is fundamental to produce energy, therefore it should never miss from our diet. Here where to find it!
Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, is a water soluble vitamin that has a fundamental role for our health. It is part of the basic process that makes our organism produce energy. Unfortunately, the human body cannot store large quantities of it, therefore it is important to take the right dose through our daily diet. What are Vitamin B1 functions and where to find it?
Why we need it
The main role of this substance, together with the other B group vitamins, is to turn glucose into energy, in order to allow the normal functioning of our organs. Moreover, researchers proved that it is fundamental for our neuronal functioning, because this substance cooperates in the transmission process of the nervous stimulations starting from our brain. Moreover, it is part of many brain activities, such as focusing and memory development.
Our heart and muscles also benefit from Vitamin B1. Researchers are actually studying the role of this substance in preventing and fighting the Parkinson’s disease.
What foods contain it?
Pork and beef liver, but also fish, seafood and shellfish contain this substance. Among the other foods, there are wholewheat cereals and their flours, wheat germ, brewer’s yeast and some legumes (especially chickpeas and white beans).
Lesser quantities of this vitamin can be found in milk and dairy products, as well as in eggs. Instead, fruits and vegetables barely contain it.
Vitamin B1 deficiency
In this context, our liver’s role is to store this substance, but it can only do it in small quantities. Therefore, it is important to be careful and avoid deficiencies. The main causes of them can be intestinal problems, too much urines and not eating the right foods.
The main symptoms of a lack of this vitamin are muscle weakness, mental confusion, no concentration, loss of appetite, nausea and vomit. Moreover, if you neglect this condition, you can also develop heart problems, vascular lesions and brain diseases that can lead to coma.
