My apologies for the delay, I have been working hard on my online program. Lets continue on with our series on Vitamins and talk about Vitamin B1. Being new to making healthy food choices, sometimes we can be short on our daily requirements. Here are the symptoms of this deficiency along with other important details and always if you suspect you are deficient or having health issues please, speak with your doctor about them. Better safe than sorry.
Signs of Deficiency: Loss of appetite, tingling in arms and legs, muscle weakness, fatigue and irritability. Daily Requirement: The daily requirements do vary per gender. Men 1.2 mg and women 1.1 mg Job: This vitamin supports our nervous system and keeps our metabolism function optimally Common food sources: (healthy foods to eat) Asparagus, Brown rice, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Eggs, Flax Seeds, Fish, Green beans, Green peas, Lemon, Orange, Peanuts, Pecans, Meat, Watermelon, Whole grain products Nice and simple, that's how I roll. Hope this helps understand the importance of Vitamin B1. Being a picky eater we face different challenges, but knowledge is power. So knowing what we need and signs we are short are good to be familiar with. Until next time,
