1926: Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)

Thiamin is a water-soluble vitamin that is part of the vitamin B complex group.

The B vitamins are important because they help our bodies convert food into energy.

Thiamin helps support a healthy nervous system and muscles function, assists with the flow of electrolytes, supports digestion, and carbohydrate metabolism.

Thiamin was isolated in 1926 by Barend Jansen and Willem Donath.

Converting food to energy, there will probably be no greater demand for this occurring than through the ages of a Toddler and a Teen.

Food is fuel, what we put in our Children's body's will have the greatest impact upon their health.

The most nutrient rich soil will help a plant / vegetable / flower to become the most it is capable of becoming. I don't believe there is nothing more a parent wants than to have their Child become the most they can be.

Vitamin B1 is among the more common nutrient deficiencies in the U.S.

Yet there is a very simple reason for this high risk of deficiency despite the widespread availability of vitamin B1 in foods, and that reason is food processing.

Promotes Energy Production
Like the other B vitamins, B1 is a key player in the production of energy from dietary carbohydrates and fats.

In fact, you could easily make the case that vitamin B1 plays the most critical role of all, acting as the gate keeper between the less efficient step of early carbohydrate breakdown and the very energy-rich Krebs' cycle and electron transport chain.

Offers Nervous System Support
The brain is one of the most energy hungry tissues in the human body.

As such, it shouldn't be a surprise to see vitamin B1 deficiency commonly leading to problems in the nervous system.
