What Is Alcohol Related Brain Damage?
People who have been drinking large amounts of alcohol for long periods of time run the risk of developing serious and persistent changes in the brain.
Damage may be a result of the direct effects of alcohol on the brain or may result indirectly, from a poor general health status or from severe liver disease.

Thiamine, also known as vitamin B1, is an essential nutrient required by all tissues, including the brain.
