ThiaminVitamin B1

Ingredient Type: Vitamin
Additive Number: 101

Thiamin, also known as vitamin B1, is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for the proper functioning of the nervous system, muscles, and heart. It is naturally found in a variety of foods, including whole grains, meat, fish, and legumes.

Thiamin is often added to protein powders and other supplements because it is involved in the metabolism of carbohydrates, which are a primary source of energy for the body. Thiamin helps to convert carbohydrates into glucose, which can then be used by the body to produce energy.

Additionally, thiamin may have other benefits for overall health, including supporting proper brain function and reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. Some research also suggests that thiamin may help to improve mood and reduce symptoms of depression.

Thiamin is generally considered safe when consumed in recommended amounts.
