THIAMIN


THE BREAKDOWN
    Exports energy from food source
  • Breaks down carbohydrates and fatty acids
  • Steady growth
  • Maintains proper muscle, skin tone and hair growth
  • Maintains equilibrium in the brain
  • Absorbs alcohol


IN THE BODY
A daily intake of Thiamin is crucial to maintain a balanced system.


WITHDRAWALS
Depression, loss of intelligence, tired all the time, cramps, upset stomach and perhaps beriberi, which can lead to paralysis. If you are a heavy drinker, you could be suffering from a lack of thiamin intake.


NATURAL FORMS
Nuts, fish, whole grains.


DAILY DOSE
  • Women 1.2 mg
  • Men 1.1 mg
  • When Pregnant: 1.4 mg
  • When breast feeding 1.5 mg

OVER DOSAGE
If there is an excess intake of Thiamin in the human body, the effects could be irritability, hyperthyroidism, headaches and the inability to sleep.


FIGHTING AGENTS
Alcohol blocks Thiamin from being absorbed by the body. If you are lacking the proper amount of Thiamin, consumption of indomethacin, anticonvulsants, antacids or diuretics can help balance you out.


WARNINGS
If you are having problems with digestion or chronic fatigue, Thiamin supplements can be used to correct the disorders. It is also used when dealing with people over the age of 65 who might have trouble maintaining proper vitamin intake.
