Vitamin B1, thiamin or thiamine is essential for glucose metabolism. It extracts energy from our food and converts it into ATP (adenosine triphosphate), which is the biochemical form in which our body stores and uses energy. Vitamin B1 also maintains proper nerve, muscle and heart function. It is a water-soluble vitamin just like others in the B-vitamin family.
