Vitamin B1 or Thiamine By: Jordan STanley

Definition- Vitamin B1, also called thiamine or thiamine, is one of 8 B vitamins. All B vitamins help the body convert food (carbohydrates) into fuel (glucose), which the body uses to produce energy.

This means that if a person takes in too much of a fat soluble vitamin, over time they can have too much of that vitamin present in their body.There is a difference between the vitamins that are naturally water soluble (such as vitamins B and C) and the form of a vitamin that is naturally a fat soluble vitamin.
