Thiamine Hydrochloride Tablets are vitamin tablets which contain thiamine (vitamin B1). They are
used to treat thiamine deficiency (when your body does not have enough of the vitamin). Even
though thiamine is found naturally in many foods (especially in yeast, wholegrain cereals, meats
and beans), sometimes your body requires a supplement. This may be because your diet does
not contain enough thiamine or you may not be absorbing it from your diet effectively. You may
also have a special need for extra thiamine, especially if you are excreting it quickly from your
body (e.g. in your urine). By taking Thiamine Hydrochloride Tablets, you can make sure you have
sufficient thiamine in your diet.
