Vitamin B1, thiamin or thiamine is essential for glucose metabolism. It extracts energy from our food and converts it into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the biochemical form in which our body stores and uses energy. Vitamin B1 also maintains proper nerve, muscle and heart function. It is a water-soluble vitamin just like others in the B-vitamin family.

Sounds important, doesn’t it? It is, indeed, as one realises when the level of this vitamin goes low!

The recommended daily allowance of Vitamin B1 for an Indian adult male is 1.2 to 1.6 mg per day and for females it is 1.1 to 1.5 mg per day, which increases by 0.2 mg during pregnancy and by 0.3 mg per day for breast-feeding moms. Thiamine deficiency or beriberi can lead to muscle wasting and cardiovascular disease. Symptoms like poor appetite, nerve damage, fatigue, muscle weakness and rapid weight loss could indicate a shortfall of Vitamin B1. This may be caused by alcoholism, vomiting and other gastrointestinal illnesses.
