    Be Careful When Buying Thiamine Supplements

    I just realized that the thiamine I had been buying for over a year was thiamine mononitrate. I thought I was buying the HCL form, but that was not the case. Hopefully this saves someone from making my mistake.

    Thiamine HCL May Increase Muscle Mass

    The orthodox reaction model (Brezlow) is shown below from Wikipedia. Coenzyme A can be seen taking the acetyl group from the thiamine complex. Notable is that there is no opening of the thiazole ring in the Breslow mechanism. However, A.J. Knell has some things to say about this mechanism...
