Vitamin B1, also called thiamine, is used in numerous body functions. Thiamine is the currently accepted name for vitamin B1 in the US; “aneurin” is still widely used in Europe, especially in the United Kingdom. The chemical name for this water-soluble vitamin is 3‑(4‑amino-2‑methyl-5‑pyrimidyl methyl)-4‑methyl thiazolium chloride. Thiamine consists of a pyrimidine ring and a thiazole ring connected by a one-carbon link. Vitamin B1 helps fuel your body by converting blood sugar into energy. It keeps your mucous membranes healthy and is essential for the nervous system as well as for cardiovascular and muscular function.
Thiamin enhances circulation and helps with blood formation and the metabolism of carbohydrates. It is also required for the health of the nervous system and is used in the biosynthesis for a number of cell constituents, including the neurotransmitters acetylcholine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). It is used in the manufacture of hydrochloric acid and therefore plays an important part in digestion. It also helps with brain functions and depression, and assists with memory and learning. Children require it for growth, and it was shown to assist with arthritis, cataracts, as well as infertility.
