Why it's important for hydration

Vitamin B1 is a key component to helping electrolytes flow in and out of cells. It also supports proper functioning of your nervous system, muscles and major organs like your brain, heart and stomach.

Why it's important for overall health

It’s used by nearly all your cells and is responsible for converting food into energy.

Fatigue and a lack of energy are two of the most common symptoms of vitamin B1 deficiency. There’s a bevy of research linking the two.

Low vitamin B1 levels commonly result in irritable moods.

Scientists have also looked at thiamine as a possible treatment for cataracts, kidney disease and potentially Alzheimer’s.
