Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) – A beneficial element for our metabolism

Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine, is a vital substance for our metabolism because it transforms the sugars contained in food into energy. Furthermore, it is very important for the heart, skeletal muscles and the nervous system: in particular, it is essential for the transmission of nerve stimuli from the brain and spinal cord to different parts of the body, and vice versa.
Since it is not stored in our body, we need a varied and balanced diet that includes Vitamin B1 in the food we eat.
