Thiamin

Thiamin is one of those nutrients that you might see on a nutrition label and wonder what the heck it is and why the heck you need it. The fact is you don’t need much Thiamin and men are only required to get 1.2mg/day while women are recommended to get 1.1mg/day. It’s a good thing you don’t need too much because it’s only found in very minute quantities in foods such as pork, seafood, and pinto beans but it’s not found at all in refined foods.

Thiamin not only helps control your appetite but it also gets energy from carbohydrates, and helps the nervous system, heart, and muscular functions.
