⚖ Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)
Vitamin B1 plays a major role in metabolizing food into energy.Too little vitamin B1 causes beriberi, a disease affecting the heart, digestive system, and the nervous system.
Beriberi is found in patients who are malnourished, and in those who are heavy drinkers of alcohol. Symptoms of beriberi include difficulty walking, loss of sensation in the hands and feet, and paralysis of the lower legs — and it may even lead to congestive heart failure.
People who consume large amounts of alcohol should take a vitamin B complex supplement to be sure they get enough B1.

For this reason, you may want to take a B-complex vitamin, which includes all the B vitamins

Vitamin B6 is important because it's involved in more than 100 enzyme reactions in the body's cells, helping us metabolize amino acids from our food and build new red blood cells. There is intriguing research that B6 may help reduce the risk of heart disease, but this benefit has not yet been definitely established.
The health benefits of vitamin B6 uncovered by clinical research include reduction in heart disease risk. Although deficiency in this vitamin is rare, it can lead to muscle weakness, depression, irritability, short term memory loss, nervousness, and difficulty concentrating.
