Thiamine is fundamentally associated with carbohydrate metabolism. By
combining with the pyrophosphoric acid in nucleated cells, particularly in
the liver, kidneys, and white blood cells, it is converted in the body to
its pyrophosphate (cocarboxylase) which acts as a coenzyme in such reactions
as the decarboxylation of alpha-keto acids, particularly of pyruvate and
alpha-ketoglutarate. In the presence of thiamine deficiency pyruvic and
lactic acids accumulate in the tissues. Thiamine pyrophosphate also acts as
a coenzyme in the direct oxidative pathway of glucose metabolism.
Pyridoxine is converted to
pyridoxal phosphate, which is the coenzyme for a variety of metabolic
functions affecting protein, carbohydrate and lipid utilization. Pyridoxine
is involved in conversion of tryptophan to niacin or serotonin.
Cyanocobalamin is a member of a
group of similar compounds, which influence erythropoiesis. It is used in
the treatment of pernicious anaemia and its neurological complication. It is
also used in the treatment of other macrocytic anaemias associated with
Thiamine is absorbed from the GIT and is widely distributed to most body
tissues. It is not stored to any appreciable extent in the body and amounts
in excess of the body's requirements are excreted in the urine as unchanged
thiamine or as metabolites. About 1 mg of thiamine is metabolised in the
body daily. Pyridoxine is converted to the active form pyridoxal phosphate.
Pyridoxal and pyridoxamine are also absorbed and converted. It is excreted
in the urine as 4-pyridoxic acid.
Large doses of cyanocobalamin are irregularly absorbed after oral
administration is impaired when intrinsic factor is deficient or when
gastrointestinal disease is present. It is stored in the liver, undergoes
enterohepatic circulation, and crosses the placenta. 50% of a dose is
excreted in the urine in 48 hours along with significant amounts in bile.
It is used as a supplement in the treatment of polyneuritis, neuralgias,
diabetic neuropathy, drug-induced neuropathy.
For therapeutic use: 1 tablet 3 times daily.
