When you suffer from beri beri, it basically means that you are deficient in vitamin B1, also known as thiamine. This essential vitamin can affect many parts of the body, including the function of your nervous system. There are two kinds of beri beri, wet and dry, and both of them can result in serious or life-threatening symptoms. Milk is one of the best ways to counteract the symptoms of beri beri, as it is rich in nutrients like vitamin B1, and is readily available around the world. Breastfeeding mothers should especially increase their milk intake, as breast milk drains a significant amount of vitamin B1 from the body. Protection Status
