Did you know sunflower seeds are one of the healthiest choices you can make when it comes to feeding your brain and removing toxic belly fat. That’s right those beautiful, tall yellow flowers are one of natures highest producers of perhaps THE most important B vitamins, B1 or thiamin. Not many foods contain significant amounts of B1 which actually helps your brain to make certain inhibitory proteins. Inhibitory proteins help you to not do things you know you should not do, like overeat for example.
Part of the way alcohol effects your brain is because alcohol causes your kidneys to excrete or remove too much of this important B vitamin. We have all seen someone who had a few too many drinks and lost the ability to make these inhibitory proteins. We even call that being intoxicated. They make wrong decisions. Decisions they are going to regret later.
I would suggest to you the same thing can happen if you are not getting enough of this essential B1 or thiamin. You may not be fully intoxicated, but your judgement can be impaired to the degree it effects your food choices and especially portion control. The remedy, make sure you are providing your brain all the B1 it needs on a daily basis.
This is part of the reason I chose organic sunflower seeds as the primary ingredient in our INBars. Sunflower seeds are just plain good for you.
