B1 - Thiamine - like many of the B Vitamins it helps to make energy from our food.

It is essential for glucose metabolism. It's also really important for healthy nerve, muscle and heart function, are you beginning to see how important these B's are?

Fatigue, irritability, loss of appetite, poor memory and sleep disturbances.

Foods to focus on:

Beans, black beans, lentils & green peas

Yeast Extracts like Marmite & Bovril

Fish, pork, beef & liver

Wholegrains like brown rice and whole wheat


Whether meat eater, vegetarian or vegan, if you are eating enough protein daily, this will usually cover your thiamine needs. Each food below represents one portion of protein, we should aim for at least 3 of these each day.
