Thiamine (Vitamin B1) participates in many important metabolic changes in the body as a coenzyme. It protects the nerves from damage and ensures the proper quality of transmission in the nervous system. It affects the improvement of memory and cognitive abilities. Taking appropriate doses of thiamine ensures proper functioning of the nervous system. Importantly, thiamine is responsible for the transformation of carbohydrates from food, which are the basic source of energy for both the body and the nervous system. Independent studies have confirmed that thiamine is involved in the formation of myelin sheaths. Thanks to this, its use is necessary to protect the nerves from damage, as well as to ensure the proper quality of neurotransmission. Thiamine is a water-soluble vitamin, its excess is not toxic, because its absorption from the gastrointestinal tract is limited, and the remaining part is regularly removed with urine (this vitamin is soluble in water).
