Eat to Nourish: Vitamin B1 (Thiamin)

Updated: Mar 29, 2020

Why it matters to include Vitamin B1 (also known as Thiamin) in your diet.

Conventional fresh food supply chains take days even weeks to get fresh produce to you the customer. As a result, a lot of nutritional value is lost due to natural decaying processes and vitamins are especially volatile and you lose a lot of nutritional value very quickly. Spinach can lose up to 90% of its Vitamin C content in 24 hours.

Because Nourishing Hub is local to the community we sell our greens still growing and you harvest when you are ready to eat, you have no loss of nutrients.


  • People who may receive thiamin to treat low levels of vitamin B1 include those with peripheral neuritis, which is an inflammation of the nerves outside the brain, or pellagra.

  • People with ulcerative colitis, persistent diarrhoea, and poor appetite may also receive thiamin. Those who are in a coma may be given thiamin injections.

  • Some athletes take thiamin supplements to boost performance
