But first, let’s understand what regular Thiamine HCL (B1) can do for you…
✅CONTROL SUGAR LIKE A BOSS:
Ingestion of any type of carbohydrate, processed in the body mainly to glucose, automatically increases the need for dietary B1 (Lonsdale et al., 2006). In fact, Thiamine is so powerful at regulating blood sugar levels, that it has been used in MANY clinical trials to support blood sugar control, improve insulin sensitivity and slow diabetes (Pácal et al., 2014).
🛡DETOXIFIES THE HEAVY METAL LEAD:
Well, who doesn’t have excess Lead in the body nowadays? In fact, Thiamine has been shown to enhances the elimination of lead from the body and that this feature may be beneficial in chelation therapy (Lonsdale, 2012).
😛IMPROVES MOOD AND MOTIVATION:
It is extremely well known that Thiamine can influnence your brain function. In fact, Thiamine displays rather impressive nootropic qualities, via increasing Dopamine (The motivating/alertness promoting) neurotransmitter in the brain (Osiezagha et al., 2013).
Beyond, acting through Dopamine signalling, Thiamine in high enough doses can increase Acetylcholine levels, which makes you sharp and focused (Meador et al., 1993).
The liver requires both B1 and B2 to completely inactivate Estradiol (the strongest form of estrogen), thereby leading to improved overall hormonal balancing (Singher et al., 1944).
