What does vitamin b1 do for someone who has relapsed into drinking after a year and is this a safe way to start making them feel betterthemorningafter?

Prevent brain damage: Many heavy drinkers become deficient in b1 & this can cause permanent brain damage; thus taking b1 (ideally as part of a b complex) can prevent this. I don't think it will do much to help with hangovers. 30% of alcoholics have pyroluria & treating this can reduce cravings. High doses of b3 may also reduce cravings. See http://www.

When vitamin b1 is consumed in excess of your needs, how does the body deal with the excess?

When vitamin b1 is consumed in excess of your needs, how does the body deal with the excess?

Excreted in urine: When you take more b1 than you need your body excretes the excess in your urine, resulting in a bright yellow color & b vitamin odor. If you take b1 & this happens, it does not mean you did not need it. When you drink water much of that is eliminated in your urine, but that does not mean you did not need water or that it was not useful as it passed thru you. B1 is non-toxic- high doses don't harm.

Very rare: Vitamin b1, which is frequently called thiamine, is part of the b complex of water-soluble vitamins required for proper nutrition.

I bought 500mg of vitamin b1 thiamine, is that too much?

DANGER: Replacing any of your b vitamins (especially in high dose) without ensuring an adequate intake of all your b vitamins can result in an overall deficiency of the ones not replaced. This is because the b vitamins often work in concert. Driving pathways that require b1 that also require b2/b3 can create a relative deficiency.
