B1 Deficiency, it mimics so many diseases

I have known B1 (thiamine) to be such an important vitamin.  It is so involved with your health.

But then I found an educational video by Dr. Eric Berg, D.C. about what a deficiency of B1 will do.   It is very informative.

I think with so many people depleting B1 by using caffeine, sugar, medical drugs, processed foods etc. etc.  that this is important to know.   I can affect the conditions such as  lack of tears, restless leg syndrome, sleep apnea, and even memory problems.   But, etc. etc. etc.

Here is the video:

Coffee, can it also be good for you?

After many years of not drinking coffee as I felt it wasn’t good for me.  I found some new evidence that it actually is good for you.  And this isn’t something coming by scientists doing research paid for by the drug companies, but by known nutritionists.

Here is an article by Dr. Mercola explaining some interesting information.

What can Vitamin C do for Your Nerves?

Sorbitol (a form of sugar) travels to certain parts of the body where it builds up. These parts of the body are:

– the lens of the eye where it forms a white milky film called cataracts and

– the sciatic nerve (the big nerve that runs down your leg) where it can cause nerve damage (nerve pain).

Evidence indicates that taking 2,000 mg a day of vitamin C may reduce the production of sorbitol and help strip sorbitol out of the body.

Most of the vitamin C sold in the US is ascorbic acid by itself, a whole food or food based Vitamin C is what is needed.

Why Wheatgrass?

Wheatgrass provides a concentrated amount of nutrients, including iron; calcium; magnesium; amino acids; chlorophyll; and vitamins A, C and E. It contains all the minerals known to man as well as vitamins B Complex, I and K. It’s  nutrient content is said to boost immunity, kill harmful bacteria in your digestive system, and rid your body of waste.  

In a juice form it is easily assimilated. 

Dr. Berg’s wheat grass juice powder is 100% organic and massively nutrient-dense. It is grown on an ancient sea bed in Utah, which allows the grass to absorb tons of trace minerals. It is dark green, alive and very aromatic. You’ll notice the difference between this wheat grass juice powder by its deep green color, soothing taste and aromatic smell.
