Are You Getting Enough B1?
Published: 3/12/2013

B vitamins support adrenal function, calm and maintain a healthy nervous system, promote key metabolic processes, turn starch and sugar into energy (by acting as a cofactor for the metabolism of carbohydrates) and play an important role in nerve transmission.

Vitamin B1, more commonly known as thiamin, influences a variety of physiologic functions, including:

  1. Nervous system and muscle functioning
  2. Carbohydrate metabolism
  3. Healthy digestion

Good dietary sources of thiamin include legumes (beans, lentils), beef and pork, brewer's yeast, whole-grain breads and cereals, oatmeal, enriched pastas, rice bran and wheat germ, milk, nuts, seeds and oranges. Dr. Weil recommends 50 mg of thiamin daily as part of a B-complex supplement that contains a full spectrum of B vitamins.
