If you drink a lot of tea, you may want to take vitamin B1. Making sure you have enough vitamin B1 is more important if you’re drinking a lot of black tea rather than herbal tea.  

 

Black tea has large amounts of tannins. A tannin is a chemical that inhibits the absorption of vitamin B1. Some kinds of tea, like green tea, are low in tannins. But, consuming a lot of black teas, like English breakfast tea and many others, can deplete you of vitamin B1 because they’re high in tannins. 

 

The first symptom of a vitamin B1 deficiency is nervous energy. Nutritional yeast is a fantastic source of vitamin B1. 

Other things that can deplete vitamin B1 (thiamine):

• Red wine/grapes

• Coffee 

• Sulfites (in dry fruit and wine) 

• Unripe fruit 

• Caffeine

• Alcohol 

• Sugar 

 

Sugar is one of the main things that can deplete vitamin B1. Caffeine not only deletes you of vitamin B1 but also vitamin D and iron.
