Vitamins are essential micronutrients required by our body in small quantities to function properly. Vitamins are essential to help maintain our overall health and well-being. Vitamins are organic compounds that cannot be made by our body and must be obtained either via food and drinks consumption or supplements or both.
Vitamin B1 also known as Thiamine is part of the B Complex Vitamins. Thiamine helps the cells in the body to convert food into energy. This process will not work properly without adequate Vitamin B1. This will result in symptoms such as loss of appetite, muscle weakness and tiredness.
Good sources of thiamine from foods are beans, eggs, fish, lentils, peas, whole grains and cereals and breads fortiied with thiamine.

We must remember that our bodies require sufficient levels of all vitamins and minerals daily. It is therefore not possible to store these for several days, weeks or months. Consuming meals that are rich in a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains will provide us with most of the vitamins and minerals that we require. However due to various factors such as soil depletion, we now need to take supplements to supplement our meal intake.
As our body cannot store Vitamin B1 for long, you need to constantly replenish your supply through healthier eating or smart supplementation.
You need to be aware that not all supplements are created equal or of top quality which is why you need to connect with a clinic such as ours, as we have done and continue to test the quality of various supplements and only recommend the best as we only have one body and must give it the best. You must not waste money on nutritional supplements that are not highly bioavailable or contact nutrients in inappropriate amounts or ratios for your needs. When it comes to supplements and food intake, quality makes all the difference and we must never eat only because it is convenient or tastes good.
One of the trusted supplements suppliers we personally use and recommend is called Usana Health Sciences as they have been supplied top rated supplements and skincare for over 30 years.

It is the only supplier we know who creates supplements based on what our bodies require vs pricing based on what the majority are willing to pay and then choosing inferior quality ingredients accordingly.
Apart from helping turn food into energy, Vitamin B1 also helps produce the sleep hormone, melatonin. This encourages better sleep throughout the night, which will help your body’s organs repair itself and also leave you waking up feeling refreshed.
