Vitamin B-1 (thiamin) is essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates, some amino acids and alcohol. B-1 is necessary for the production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and for the detoxification of both alcohol and lactic acid (a by-product of strenuous exercise). Thiamin has important roles in the production of energy and ATP derived from reactions in the Krebs cycle. A high carbohydrate diet, strenuous physical exercise, or chronic alcohol consumption may increase the physiological need for vitamin B-1.
