    Could this be why OJ is so addicting for me? Rich in sugar and thiamine also. I often find myself drinking straight from the OJ jug when I need a quick boost.

    I also find that cheese & jello made with OJ, gelatin, honey to be almost rocket fuel. I'll wake up at midnight and have that for a snack and go from being groggy to so energetic that sometimes it can be hard to go back to bed lol. Didn't RP say one should consider a quart of OJ a day for general stress resistance? :rightagain2

    Can someone please explain why Thiamine HCL in doses of up to 100mg feel VERY different to a simple B-Complex with the same amount? Subjectively, Thiamine on its own is insanely good for mental clarity and energy!

    Isolated from other Bs, it's potassium opposing effect will be highlighted. Thiamine taken alone for several weeks, without counterbalancing with enough K, can lead to hypokalemia.
    It's great for the brain, especially when properly balanced.

    Look it up. I have no horses in this race as I dont eat fruit, but milk and oranges are a much better source of b1 than liver and or eggs.

    Yeah I did look it up on cronometer at the time, just thought it was weird how Peat said the same. Only thing I can think is, Peat is wrong or its more bio available in those foods, a bit like the folate in milk.

    Interesting. Perhaps this is why I have been getting facial twitches so much. Where can I find this antagonistic relationship in the literature?
