Vitamin B1: Main Image

How to Use It

While the ideal intake is uncertain, one study reported the healthiest people consumed more than 9 mg per day.47 The amount found in many multivitamin supplements (20-25 mg) is more than adequate for most people.

Vitamin B1 is nontoxic, even in very high amounts.

Where to Find It

Wheat germ, whole wheat, peas, beans, enriched flour, fish, peanuts, and meat are all good sources of vitamin B1.

Possible Deficiencies

A decline in vitamin B1 levels occurs with age, irrespective of medical condition.48 Deficiency is most commonly found in alcoholics, people with malabsorption conditions, and those eating a very poor diet. It is also common in children with congenital heart disease.49 People with chronic fatigue syndrome may also be deficient in vitamin B1.50, 51 Individuals undergoing regular kidney dialysis may develop severe vitamin B1 deficiency, which can result in potentially fatal complications.52 Persons receiving dialysis should discuss the need for vitamin B1 supplementation with their physician.
