Many of us have countless problems and their solution is as easy as it can get. It’s important to walk properly to get the right posture; to communicate properly; etc to improve the overall quality of life. But what if we are unable to walk or talk well because we don’t eat properly due to the deficiency of a certain Vitamin?

People may become deficient in thiamine either by not taking in enough vitamin B1 or by excessive use which may occur in pregnancy, hyperthyroidism, fever or lactation. Beriberi affects the cardiovascular system (wet beriberi) or the nervous system (dry beriberi). Body’s inability to use thiamine, excessive alcohol or poisoning and a rare genetic disorder may cause beriberi too.
