Vitamin B1 Info

Vitamin B1 is another water soluble vitamin from the B complex group. Called thiamine, it is essential for the growth, development and healthy function of all cells and tissues, in particular your peripheral nervous system and cardiovascular system.

Vitamin B1 Benefits

Beriberi is the disease of thiamine deficiency. It damages peripheral nerves and cardiovascualar function and is potentially fatal if left untreated.

Thiamine deficiency is a symptom of poor nutrition, either from a dietary imbalance or from chronic disease such as alcoholism, GI tract diseases, HIV/AIDS or bulimia. Over consumption of tea and coffee can also deplete the body’s vitamin B1 levels.

Vitamin B1 deficiency affects every cell in the body, and consequently all organ systems. Fatigue, weight loss, irritability and mental confusion are early signs of deficiency. People with diabetes may be thiamine deficient, contributing to the neurodegenerative complications associated with this disease.

Brain damage can occur in extreme cases. Wernicke’s encephalopathy and Korsakoff psychosis are two diseases of severe thiamine deficiency most commonly found in developed societies and usually associated with alcoholism.

Vitamin B1 Side Effects

Vitamin B1 (thiamine) should always be taken in conjunction with a B complex supplement, as all the B group vitamins need to be present in the correct ratio for optimal effect.

  • Works!

    I've been taking this product every summer for three years now! Though I found it takes a month or so to build up enough B1 in your system to repel the mosquitos, this product is awesome, living next to the sea we have major mosquito problems over summer, so I just start taking this Anti-Bite a couple of months prior to the mosquito season, and may only get one or two bites the entire season, whereas prior to taking this I was covered in bites daily!!
    Just remember to build up by taking 3 tablets of Anti-Bite for at least a month (even two months) before you need it!!

    This is great stuff. I am usually covered with bites. A number of years ago I took this and had no bites all summer. Then I could not source it and sort of forgot about it. Used sprays which was inconvenient and I did not like them. Then I spotted it on Health Post site. Bought first bottle. It did not work effectively to start with. I was getting small pimply blisters. Thought I might have an allergy reaction. I contacted Health Post who consulted their experts. Health Post advised me to stop and refunded me in full. However I persevere as I was planning a trip to Asia in a few months. The blisters settled down and I was so very glad. While in Asia I had the occasional bites but it was a small nip, did not itch and settled down the next day. If I had not taken BI Anti Bite, I would have been in agony with big swollen bites and be driven crazy with the itch! My poor travelling companions were bitten and suffered from prickly heat. Whereas I had none of these issues. Now I am taking one every other day. Definitely recommend Pro Life Anti Bite Vitamin B1!!
