Benefits of B1 (Thiamin)

Vitamin B1 (thiamin) is a water soluble vitamin needed for energy production.

Here at Forest Whole Food we think being a ‘food detective’  is so important in today’s world.  Nutrition facts are fun (for food geeks like us) so we make sure we share as much information as possible.

Thiamin is easily lost through the kidneys and we cannot store much of it in the body so a regular intake is essential.  Vitamin B1 is easily lost through food processing such as chopping, mincing, high cooking temperatures, boiling and preserving.  It is readily available in a range of wholefoods which don’t require much preparation such as chlorella and nuts.

Thiamin Suppports:

  • Normal energy-yielding metabolism
  • Functioning of the nervous system
  • Normal psychological function
  • Normal function of the heart

If you want to find foods that contain B1 (thiamin) try our organic chlorella powder, organic black rice and organic macadamia nuts.
