A Vital Vitamin for Brain & Nervous System.

Asalam-o-Alaikum Everyone !
It's been years since I've posted anything. I apologize for that.
Today my post is not about beauty or makeup, it's to bring to consciousness the significance of Vitamin B1 or Thiamine.

Vitamin B1, also called Thiamine, is a B complex vitamin, It is found in many foods and is vitally important to keeping a body operating properly. It helps the body's cells change carbohydrates into energy. The main role of this is to provide energy for the body, specially the brain and nervous system. Thiamine also plays an important role in muscle contraction and conduction of nerve signals. It is also essential for the metabolism.
Dr, Sherry Ross, gynecologist and women's health expert at providence saint john's health center in Santa Monica, California, USA, said: "Thiamine is involved in many body functions including the nervous system, heart & muscles, it is also important in the flow of electrolytes in and out of nerve and muscle cells, enzymatic processes and carbohydrate metabolism."
Vitamin B1 also helps in maintaining a positive mental attitude, preventing memory loss, enhancing learning abilities, fighting stress and increasing energy.
Deficiency Vitamin B1 or Thiamine causes complications involving the nervous system including permanent nerve and brain damage.
Many people don't realize that they have a deficiency, as many of the symptoms are subtle and often overlooked.
Symptoms of Thiamine deficiency include:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability 
  • Reduced reflexes
  • Tingling sensations in arms & legs 
  • Muscle weakness
  • Nausea & vomiting 
  • Blurry vision 
  • Changes in heart rate 
  • Shortness of breath 
  • Confusion & inability to think clearly 
  • Hallucinations 
Humans need a continuous supply of Thiamine because it is not stored in the body. It should be a part of the daily diet.
Food sources of Thiamine include:
  • Beef 
  • Beef liver 
  • Oats 
  • Oranges 
  • Lentils
  • Peas
  • Asparagus 
  • Nuts & seeds
  • Enriched, fortified and whole grain products such as bread, cereals, rice, pasta and flour
  • Dairy products are not very high in thiamine in small amounts but when you eat large amounts of these, they become a significant source of thiamine 
Thiamine or Vitamin B1 is essential during pregnancy because it converts carbohydrates into energy which helps your nervous system, heart and muscles function normally and is absolutely necessary for baby's brain development.
The daily recommended dietary allowance of Thiamine are:
  • Infants:- 0-6 months 0.2 mg per day   
                  7-12 months 0.3 mg per day 
  • Children:- 1-3 years 0.5 mg per day
                     4-8 years 0.6 mg per day 
  • Adolescents:- 14-18 years
                      Male: 1.2 mg per day
                      Female: 1.0 mg per day 
  • Adults:- 19 years and above
                     Male: 1.2 mg per day
                     Female: 1.1 mg per day 
  • Pregnant women all ages:- 1.4 mg per day 
  • Breastfeeding women all ages:- 1.4 mg per day.
2  years back I suffered from a brain stroke due to Thiamine deficiency. 5 spots appeared on my brain, spots on a brain MRI are caused by changes in water content and fluid movement that occurs in brain tissues when the brain cells are inflamed or damaged. Left side of my body got partially paralyzed and I partially lost memory of previous 5-6 years. Alhamdulilah Alhamdulilah I'm recovering and doing much better now Alhamdulilah. I don't want anyone to go through what I've been through that's why sharing this piece of information. I tried to keep it short & simple so it's easy for everyone to read & understand. 
Much love xx
