There are a variety of other uses for Vitamin B1. It keeps all metabolic functions in the body running smoothly and correctly.

The nervous system as well as cognitive systems would not be nearly as functional without a good dose of Vitamin B1 consistently running through the veins.
This supplement comes in the form of a crystalline powder with a slightly off-white or almost yellow hue. Thiamine is easily soluble in water and because the body is constantly cycling it out through the urinary tract, it needs to continually be replaced through diet or supplementation. This substance reacts easily to heat and alkali when these components are added to the solution. Because the vitamin is so popular and so necessary to sustain life it can be found in an abundance of different natural foods, however a synthetic man-made version is also available for purchase. Some of the richer sources of Vitamin B1 include oranges, sunflower seeds, asparagus, baked potatoes, raisins, various meats, beef and organ meats, wheat bread, and brown rice and fortified cereals just to name a few.
There are several types of natural Thiamine phosphate that can be found naturally, and this form is mainly utilized due to its ability to aid transportation throughout the body. The derivatives of this principle Thiamine can mainly be synthesized through various reactions in the body, and each for goes on to assist with other functions in the body such as metabolism of various nutrients, fats, carbs etc. These forms of Thiamine act as a co-factor to many enzymatic reactions that are deemed necessary in order to keep the body working correctly. Thiamine forms new blood when needed and also keeps enough neurotransmitters firing regularly that it keeps the brain alert and well stimulated.

The name Vitamin B1 was given to Thiamine not because it was the first vitamin to have ever been discovered, but because it was the first to have been classified in a group of what we now refer to as vitamins. A healthy diet will have large amounts of Vitamin B1 present in it and this diet needs to take into account a large portion of Vitamin B1 on a daily basis since it is so often expelled through the urine. This is possibly the best reason to supplement, because it makes scheduling servings of Vitamin B1 so much easier rather than having to worry whether one food has it or not. The body does not routinely store Vitamin B1 anywhere so this is why it is best to take multiple servings per day.
