Vitamin B1 Information

Vitamin B1 is also known as thiamine.

Vitamin B1 can be obtained through the diet via foods such as:

  • Green Leafy Vegetables
  • Legumes
  • Nuts
  • Peas
  • Protein Rich Foods
  • Wheat Germ
  • Whole Grain Cereal

Apart from helping with Alzheimer’s disease, vitamin B1 can also help with the symptoms of the following health conditions:

  • Anaemia
  • Diabetes
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hepatitis
  • HIV Support
  • Indigestion
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Motion Sickness
Vitamin B1 and Alzheimer’s Information

With Alzheimer’s disease, the parts of the brain called the cholinergic neurons, which are responsible for nerve transmission, start to deteriorate.

Trials have shown that people with Alzheimer’s disease have less activity of enzymes which are dependant on vitamin B1.

Trials have also shown that by taking vitamin B1 supplements, the progression of Alzheimer’s disease is slowed.

How Much Vitamin B1 To Take To Help With Alzheimer’s Disease?

Vitamin B1 is non-toxic and excessive amounts are easily excreted in the urine.

Amounts up to 300mg per day of vitamin B1 are the most common dosage.

Vitamin B1 works best as part of a B complex supplement.

In one clinical trial, doses of 3g were taken per day, this showed a small improvement in the mental functions of Alzheimer’s sufferers.

So, too sum up…

Apart from Alzheimer’s disease, vitamin B1 can help with other health conditions such as aneamia, diabetes, fibromyalgia and indigestion.

If you are concerned about someone who has Alzheimer’s disease, clinical trials have shown that by supplementing their diet with vitamin B1, it can help to improve their memory and delay the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

I hope this Alzheimer’s information was useful.
