- Strengthening the immune system
- Stressful situations
- Muscle function
- Skin, hair, and nails
One thing that can happen if thiamine is deficient is nightmares or bad dreams.
Alcohol and drugs (including medical drugs and antibiotics) use up Vitamin B1 quickly. Also, it gets used up faster during detoxification or weight loss.
