1 Which foods contain vitamin B1 (thiamine)?
The human organism can only store vitamin B1 in very small amounts. For this reason, it is important that the vitamin is absorbed daily through a healthy and balanced diet. Vitamin B1 is mainly found in larger quantities in whole grain products and legumes. Besides peanuts, peas and wheat gluten, vitamin B1 is also found in sunflower seeds. Larger amounts of vitamin B1 can be found especially in muscle meat. As vitamin B1 is heat-sensitive, foods containing vitamin B1 should be prepared gently so that a lot of vitamin B1 is still retained.
2 What is vitamin B1?
Vitamin B1 is also called thiamine in medicine. Vitamin B1 belongs to the water-soluble vitamins. The human organism needs the vitamin to metabolize nutrients, especially carbohydrates, from food. Vitamin B1 supports many nerve functions in the body.
3 What is 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 a daily dose
of 1.2 mg vitamin B1. For a small child the recommended amounts are naturally lower. The need may be slightly increased when taking the contraceptive pill or alcoholism. The daily requirement varies according to height, body weight, gender and life situation. In order to avoid a vitamin B1 deficiency, vitamin B1 should be taken daily through a healthy and balanced diet. Those who do not succeed in this have the possibility to supplement vitamin B1 in the form of food supplements. These are available in the form of capsules and tablets in stores.
4 How does a vitamin B1 surplus manifest itself?
An excess of vitamin B1 through thiamin-rich food does not cause any harmful side effects. The same applies to the intake of vitamin B1 in the form of food supplements. However, consequences can arise from an excess of vitamin B1 through the bloodstream. If vitamin B1 is injected in high doses and reaches the body through the bloodstream, nausea, vomiting and cramps may occur. In severe cases, cardiac arrhythmia may occur.
