Natural Vitamin B1+

Are vitamin B1 supplements linked to cancer?

B1 typically it's water soluble. It's not going to be a problem. There are fats soluble, but I think it's just the reverse because cancer originates in the mitochondria and vitamin B1 actually protects the mitochondria. It helps the metabolism within that Krebs cycle. I think it can reduce your chances of cancer versus causing cancer, even at higher levels. I've never seen any problems with that. Of course, you have also the synthetic version of B1, which I think I would go for the natural one because it's going to be better. But typically, nutrition in general, you want to find a good source of it. You don't want to just do the synthetic, even the antioxidants because they try to synthesize the exact replication. But in nature, nothing comes as one individual fractionated nutrient. It always comes in a complex, especially with the antioxidants because think about it.

When you have this free radical, which is like, if you look at it, it's called an unpaired electron. It's kind of like this plate spinning around in a circle. That's kind of wobbly because it's not balanced with two weights. If it's a free radical, it's an unpaired electron, right? So then it creates a lot of destruction. So here this antioxidant comes in and it donates an electron to help balance that free radical and now it's stable. But what just happened to that antioxidant? It now becomes unstable because it had a donated electron.

So in nature, you have networks of antioxidants that they borrow another electron from another antioxidant and they keep doing that and they keep doing that until the point where it becomes very stable. So in nature, when you take a lot of like one antioxidant, it creates some additional problems, even increased risk of cancer. If you stick with food based antioxidants, food based nutrition, for the most part, you're going to stay out of trouble.
