Thiamine is necessary for carbohydrate metabolism, and is widely accessible from many foods, including seeds, whole wheat flour, and some meats. Thiamine supplements are only necessary if you have a deficiency, which is determined only by a medical doctor. The supplement is injected into veins or muscles.
