Hey! – Rob here
Your Daily Health Fix today is about …
Why you need it:
Essential for metabolising stored energy (from food or from body fat). It is also key for effective nerve signalling including motoric control and sharp cognition.
Across many of the largest health providers websites you’ll see breakfast cereals listed as a food rich in Vitamin B1 – The myth being that this is a good source. The vitamins found in refined grains including wheat, oats, and corn are largely destroyed during the milling process, and what remains is further degraded when heated during the cereal manufacturing process. The same can be said for dough based items such as bread and pasta. Additionally, plant based sources of vitamin B1 contain compounds that actually block effective absorption of it in the human body.
As pork products are some of the highest in Thiamine, including a 200g chop in your weekly routine and quality additive free bacon along with your eggs in the mornings can go a long way to ensuring you’re topped up with this essential vitamin.
Don’t like Bacon? – SeaFood sources like Salmon or Mussels are great alternatives rich in B1.
. . . That’s it for this dose,
Until the next time – Stay Motivated!💪🏼
