Thiamine is an essential nutrient that all tissues of the body need to function properly. Deficiency, which can happen in as little as three weeks, affects your heart, nervous system, and immune system. Symptoms include fatigue, irritability, nerve damage, tingling limbs (pins and needle sensation), loss of sensitivity in feet and fingers, muscle weakness, rapid heartbeat, difficulty waking up, mental confusion, coordination problems, blurry vision, nausea and/or vomiting, confusion, reduced awareness of your environment, an inability to think clearly, and memory loss.
Diabetics are often deficient in thiamine. Thiamine is key to the production of acetylcholine. This is the element that helps your body pass messages between its nerves and muscles. Without this communication, your heart wouldn’t work the way it should. Lack of thiamine is one reason for uneven cardiac function.
Allithiamine is fat soluble, it takes the thiamine across the cell membrane and into the cell. This needs to be taken with a fat such as avocado or dairy, etc. ThiamineHCL is water soluble and can be taken any time.
