1. when do I have a vitamin B1 overdose?
An overdose of vitamin B1 through food is usually not possible. Even if you take a lot of vitamin B1 through your food, there are no serious consequences. If the organism receives too much vitamin B1, the excess is excreted via the urinary tract. A serious overdose can result from the excessive intake of vitamin B1 in the form of food supplements. An extreme overdose can cause symptoms such as headaches, skin changes and itching.
2 What is vitamin B1?
Vitamin B1 is an essential vitamin. In medicine, vitamin B1 is also known as thiamine. The vitamin belongs to the water-soluble vitamins. The human body needs the vitamin to metabolize nutrients, especially carbohydrates, from food. Vitamin B1 supports many nerve functions and essential processes in the body. The human organism cannot use vitamin B1 immediately. It is converted into a special enzyme. This is called thiamine pyrophosphate, or TPP for short. After the conversion, the enzyme helps the body, especially for the metabolism.
3 The effect of vitamin B1 in the body
Vitamin B1 is essential for the human energy metabolism. It helps to obtain energy from carbohydrates and fats. The transmission of excitation between muscles and nerves can only take place with vitamin B1. The German Nutrition Society (DGE) recommends a daily dose of 1-1.3 mg vitamin B1 for adults. Women in pregnancy are recommended a daily dose of 1.2 mg vitamin B1. For a small child the recommended amounts are naturally lower.
4. signs of vitamin B1 deficiency
A vitamin B1 deficiency often manifests itself through many different symptoms. Memory problems and fatigue often appear quickly. In the case of a severe deficiency, performance decreases. This is often accompanied by a numbness in the hands or feet. However, this should not be confused with a magnesium deficiency.
