About the webinar

Presenter: Karen von Merveldt-Guevara, MD (Germany)

This webinar provides comprehensive insights into thiamine (vitamin B1) and its critical role in human health, including the unrecognized epidemic of B1 deficiency within the general population.

From its utilization in the breakdown of carbohydrates, amino acids, and fatty acids, to its significance as a cofactor in essential metabolic pathways and liver health, thiamine has many implications for preventing disease. Understanding the impact of acidosis, dietary factors, and medication use on thiamine levels is significant for improving patient care.

Learn about the importance of B1 throughout the lifecycle – including the epigenetic impacts of deficiency during pregnancy, its contribution to brain development, and in delaying mental and physical decline in the elderly.
