- raw sea foods contain thiaminase, a substance which seriously inhibits
B-1 absorption, sea foods such as:

B-1 Fortified Foods NOT Effective
Food manufacturers have tried to replace the lost vitamin B-1 by fortifying their foods with it, but this has proved to be largely ineffective.
Occurs in Whole Foods
It occurs in large quantities only in whole, unprocessed foods. B-1 deficiencies are not uncommon today because we eat so many highly processed foods, in which the B-1 has been destroyed.
B-1 is for Healthy Skin
B-1 is also necessary for normal growth; healthy skin, hair, blood and muscles; appetite and digestion.
Foods Are The Best Source
- Good sources of this vitamin (Thiamin) are:
- brown rice
- rice bran
- oat bran
- whole wheat
- wheat germ
- crushed sunflower seeds
- soy foods
- Alcohol destroys B-1.
- If you have even one drink every day you may need supplementation.
- If your chart shows deficiencies of any B vitamins:
- increase your intake of vitamin B-rich foods
- take a good multivitamin/mineral capsule or a B-complex tablet daily (with a meal)
- and follow all recommendations to improve your digestion.
