Vitals vitamin B1
Thiamine is the precursor of the biologically active form of vitamin B1, thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP). In order to convert thiamine into TPP, magnesium is needed. Thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP) is a co-enzyme for various biological processes such as the energy metabolism, to create energy out of fatty acids, carbohydrates and protein. TPP is needed in every single cell of the body, including the heart and (central) nervous system, which means it plkays an important role for a proper functioning heart and central nervous system. TPP is also needed in the brain and nerves, that are important for focus, memory and mood.
Vitamine B1 250 mg from Vitals offers a high dose of thiamine in its purest form. The capsule itself is made from cassave starch, while the filler is made from rice starch.
It is recommended to use vitamin B1 along with a vitamin B-complex supplement or a regular multi vitamin since nearly all B-vitamins work together.

Why can resistant starch improve your blood sugar balance?
Among the most popular good intentions we have before the new year starts is to improve health and lose weight.
Sadly, for many of us, those good intentions fall by the wayside within as little as 1 or 2 weeks. The main reason for failing on any given diet is that it tends to be a too drastic change in how we tend to eat.
Which for most of us, tends to be a moderate to high-carb diet, which for most Dutch people tends to revolve around bread and potatoes. That will make it very hard if you want to make a switch to a low-carb diet as is the norm these days.
However, I've got good news for you! You may not need to give up on all of your carbs. Instead, you can try to switch from carbs that have a negative impact on your blood sugar balance, towards slow-acting carbs also known as ... resistant starch.
Even when you are quite happy about eating a (very) low-carb diet, there are still ways to increase the amount of resistant starch in your diet, without drastically increasing the amount of calories and 'net carbs'.
