Thiamine was discovered mainly through the discovery of its deficiency syndrome beriberi which is characterised by a polyneuritic paralysis that affects mainly the lower limbs. Beriberi was found in the Far East but became prevalent during the 19th Century, when the introduction of steam-powered rice mills began to permit highly efficient polishing and thus removing this vital nutrient. Beriberi can also present as a ?wet? form of the disease, characterised by heart failure and by widespread oedema, especially in the lower limbs. Thiamine functions as part of an enzyme, thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), which is required for energy production, carbohydrate, fat, and alcohol metabolism, and nerve cell function.
INSECT REPELLANT - Some studies suggest that taking large doses of thiamine is effective in reducing mosquito bites. This safe vitamin apparently produces a skin odor that is not detectable by humans, but is disagreeable to pregnant mosquitoes (Pediatric Clinics of North America, 16:191, 1969). It seems to be especially effective for hypersensitive allergic individuals. Thiamine takes about 2 weeks before the odor fully saturates the skin.
ENERGY PRODUCTION (ATP) - thiamine in the form of thiamine diphosphate (TDP) is required for ATP production. It is essential in the conversion process of pyruvate through to Acetyl-CoA - this then feeds into the Kreb's cycle.
ALCOHOLISM - Chronic alcohol abuse is frequently associated with a range of symptoms that can include Wernicke's encephalopathy, Korsakoff psychosis, or a combination of these known as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome. Alcoholics often have a low intake of thiamine, impaired absorption, and impaired utilization. Thiamine supplements frequently produce dramatic clinical improvement.
BRAIN FUNCTION - thiamine is essential for proper energy production in the brain. De
