Vitamin B1, or Thiamine is an 'anti-stress' vitamin because it may strengthen the immune system and improve the body’s ability to withstand stressful conditions. The body needs it to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy. Alcoholics, people with Crohn’ s disease, anorexia, and those undergoing kidney dialysis may be deficient. Thiamine is also used for AIDS and boosting the immune system, diabetic pain, heart disease, alcoholism, aging, a type of brain damage called cerebellar syndrome, canker sores, vision problems such as cataracts and glaucoma, motion sickness, and improving athletic performance. Other uses include preventing cervical cancer and progression of kidney disease in patients with type 2 diabetes. Some people use thiamine for maintaining a positive mental attitude; enhancing learning abilities; increasing energy and fighting stress. Symptoms of thiamine deficiency are fatigue, irritability, loss of mental alertness, difficulty breathing, and heart damage, depression and abdominal discomfort and trouble digesting carbohydrates. Beriberi is a B1 deficiency with symptoms which include swelling, tingling, or burning sensation in the hands and feet, confusion, trouble breathing because of fluid in the lungs, and uncontrolled eye movements called nystagmus. Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome is a brain disorder caused by thiamine deficiency, often caused by malnutrition due to alcoholism. Korsakoff syndrome is characterized by memory problems and nerve damage. Thiamine may lower risk of developing cataracts and might help Alzheimer’s disease. 100mg taken 10 days before and during going into mosquito territory can repel mosquitoes
