Thiamine deficiency is rare, but can occur in people who get most of their calories from sugar or alcohol. People with thiamine deficiency have difficulty digesting carbohydrates. As a result, a substance called pyruvic acid builds up in their bloodstream, causing a loss of mental alertness, difficulty breathing, and heart damage (a disease known as beriberi).
Some preliminary evidence suggests that thiamine — along with other nutrients — may lower risk of getting cataracts.
Folic Acid is essential for several bodily functions — the production of healthy red blood cells, for example. Leafy vegetables are a principal dietary source, although most of us get it primarily from fortified cereals and bread.
Sufficient folic acid intake is critical for pregnant women to prevent neural tube defects in developing embryos. It is also essential for ensuring fertility. Furthermore, it can relieve hot flashes in postmenopausal women, and may also be helpful in preventing heart disease. Folic acid has been used to help treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
