Thiamin by Seeking Health provides 50 mg of thiamin (as thiamine hydrochloride) per vegetarian capsule. Thiamin, also known as vitamin B1, is a water-soluble B vitamin that is hydrolyzed, or broken down in the intestine. It plays a crucial role in metabolic reactions such as forming adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy.
Thiamin may support the nervous system, healthy brain function, a positive mental state, normal energy levels, healthy stress response, and a healthy immune system. Much of the thiamin in the body takes the active form, thiamin diphosphate (TDP). Thiamine hydrochloride eventually is converted into the metabolically active form, TDP, in the body. It may play a role in supporting catalysis of the enzymes involved in metabolism of fats, starches and sugars.
