1. what is vitamin B1?
Thiamine is a water-soluble vitamin and is also known as vitamin B1. It is a hydrophilic vitamin and belongs to the group of B vitamins. Vitamin B1 is very sensitive to light. The vitamin also reacts easily with oxygen. Thiamine is found in both animal and vegetable foods. The vitamin must be taken in daily through a healthy and balanced diet, as the human organism can only store small amounts. 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.

- Muscular atrophy / muscle atrophy
- Loss of appetite
- Nausea, nausea
- gastrointestinal disorders
- Decrease the secretion of gastric juice
- performance constraints

3. the daily requirement of vitamin B1
The German Society for Nutrition (DGE) recommends a daily dose of
1-1.3 mg vitamin B1 for adults. Women in pregnancy are recommended to take 1.2 mg vitamin B1 daily. For a small child the recommended amounts are naturally lower. The requirement may be slightly increased when taking the contraceptive pill or alcoholism.
Anyone who does not get enough vitamins and nutrients is at risk of developing a vitamin B1 deficiency. The storage capacity of the human organism is limited, which is why a daily supply of vitamin B1 is very important. Age, sex, weight, height and metabolic situation play an essential role.
4. thiamine body stock
The total thiamine body stock in an adult human is about 30 mg. Most of the thiamine is found in the muscles. Since the half-life is rather short with 10 - 18 days, the thiamine requirement should be covered daily by a healthy and balanced diet. The human organism needs more thiamine especially during heavy physical work, a lot of sports activities and pregnancy.
