All about fruitarianism with a long-term fruitarian, Lena

After yesterday's 45 minutes swim in the cold and seaweedy Pacific ocean, in a restrictive wet suit, today's flat blue water surface seemed unreal.

I made 2 swimmer's miles (132 x 25 yards) or 3000 m in over 86 minutes. The day before yesterday I made only one, but in 42 minutes, the fastest by now.

This sunny afternoon was peaceful - wish you many of these.

My watch after 3K swim today

Vitamin B1 Thiamine

Vitamin B1 (Thiamin, Thiamine) is one of 8 B vitamins, the first B vitamin discovered. All B vitamins help the body convert carbohydrates into glucose, which the body uses to produce energy, B-complex vitamins also help the body metabolize fats and protein. All B vitamins are water soluble.

All living organisms use thiamine, but it is synthesized only in bacteria, fungi, and plants. Animals must obtain it from their diet, therefore for humans it is an essential nutrient.  Your body needs it to form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which every cell of the body uses for energy.

B1 helps convert food into energy, needed for healthy skin, hair, muscles, and brain. 

Thiamine deficiency has a potentially fatal outcome if it remains untreated. In less-severe cases, nonspecific signs include malaise, weight loss, irritability and confusion.

Recommended daily amount: 1.1 - 1.2 mg (~ 50 g of flaxseeds, or sesame tahini, or 100 g pine or sunflower seeds, or corn flour).
