Product properties


Each ml contains 200 mg thiamine hydrochloride.

Mechanism of Action:

Thiamin (vitamine B1) is a water soluble vitamin that plays an important role as a part of coenzyme in complete oxidation of glucose via krebs cycle. In any situation where carbohydrates are the major energy source, or when glucose is added to the diet, thiamine requirement is increased significantly.

Tissues dependent on glucose or lactate-pyruvate for energy such as the brain and heart are particularly compromised in thiamine deficiency. Thiamine deficiency may be primary, due to deficiency in the diet, or secondary, because of destruction of the vitamin in the diet by thiaminase. The principal cause of thiamine deficiency is the presence of thiamine-destroying agents which are widely distributed in nature, and produced by rumen microflora. Growing sheep are particularly susceptible, and outbreaks of cerebrocortical necrosis have been associated with sulphur in the diet.


Thiamine is absorbed rapidly after intramuscular injection and distributed in tissues. Thiamine is stored in very low amount in liver, kidney, heart and brain. The excess is excreted in the urine as a pyrimidine or as unchanged material.
