Thiamine mononitrate is a nitrate salt form of Vitamin B1. The food and drug industries use thiamine mononitrate in supplements and foods as it is a stable form that can counteract the loss of vitamin B1 during processing. Like all B vitamins, thiamine mononitrate is water-soluble and an essential nutrient. Scientists named it vitamin B1 in 1910, as it was the first identified water-soluble vitamin. It is a prerequisite for every cell in the body to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the body’s primary fuel source for energy. It’s also crucial for proper nerve function and metabolizing carbohydrates, fatty acids, glucose, and branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs).
Thiamine mononitrate is a critical factor for producing cellular energy. It is a cofactor for pyruvate dehydrogenase and 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase. The body uses these enzymes to synthesize ATP for cells to use as energy. The body can also store ATP as energy for future use.
Vitamin B1 plays several important digestive and metabolic roles. It is an essential cofactor for enzymes that metabolize carbs, lipids, BCAAs, and glucose. Thiamine plays a role in breaking down proteins too. It also stimulates hydrochloric acid production for better digestion.
Vitamin B1 is important for a robust immune system. Stressful conditions and circumstances can weaken the immune system, but thiamine boosts immunity by strengthening its resistance and endurance during these situations. Unsurprisingly, thiamine deficiencies decrease the effectiveness of immune system functions.
Thiamine is an essential component of maintaining a healthy central nervous system. It supports numerous cognitive functions, and it’s critical to form the myelin sheaths that protect nerves. Without sufficient thiamine, individuals may begin to experience neurological symptoms.
The richest food sources of thiamine include yeast, whole grains, pork, legumes, and some fruits. Certain risk factors put individuals at a higher risk of developing a thiamine deficiency. These include:
Thiamine deficiencies can remain undiagnosed for a long time, as the symptoms are often vague or mimic other health conditions. Some common signs of a deficiency include:
Most individuals tolerate thiamine mononitrate well. As a water-soluble vitamin, the body excretes any excess thiamine it doesn’t need. However, consuming excessive thiamine doses can have serious side effects. Individuals with a sensitivity to vitamin B1 may experience hives, itching, flushing, or nausea after taking supplements. Consult with a physician before taking any new supplements.
