Vitamin B1 - Thiamine (elemental) - 1.1 mg
In the form of Vitamin B1 Thiamine hydrochloride - 1.4 mg
Vitamin B deficiencies are common, so a safe supplementation is justified.
For all B vitamins, it is recommended to take a B complex instead of individual B vitamins. These work in synergy with each other and a complex ensures that the underlying relationships are in balance.
Vitamin B1 plays a role in energy production from carbohydrates. Other indications where vitamin B1 can have a beneficial effect include cataract (prevention), heart failure (cardiomyopathy), neurological disorders, inflammatory bowel diseases, stroke, migraine and low back pain.
A varied and balanced diet meets the need for B1. Although the toxicity of vitamin B1 is low, there is no scientific justification for including a dose of more than three times the RDA. We place the choice on 100% of the RDA to respect the balance with the other B vitamins.
