I love sharing nutrition info with you guys. I know that, for me at least, I have a greater appreciation for me food when I know what exactly I’m getting out of it. However, even I was getting kind of bored of reading (writing) big long posts on nutrition, so I figured out a way to make nutrition a bit more reader-friendly by using fun graphics!
Today, I’m continuing my Nutrition 101 series by teaching you a bit about vitamin B1, also called thiamine. I was originally going to go over all the B-vitamins at once, but decided that I’d rather break it down for you a bit more.
Thiamine is a water-soluble vitamin, which means that it is not stored in the body. This means that you should be consuming or supplementing thiamine on a daily basis, or you may be at risk for deficiency.
I also want to mention that I do not recommend supplementing individual B-vitamins. Most of the B-vitamins are reliant on each other during certain metabolic processes, so supplementing only one of them can lead to deficiency in the others.
Now get out there and make a spinach salad with some raw sunflower seeds on top with a side of beans!
