Thiamine rich orange juice

Oranges are a treasure trove of nutrients and protective plant compounds, including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Orange juice is a healthy source of thiamine. Eight ounces of orange juice contain 0.223 milligram of thiamine, almost 19 percent of the DRI for males 19 and over and 20 percent of the DRI for females in that age group.

Thiamine is one of the B vitamins. Thiamine is naturally present in some foods or added to some food products.

Thiamine is a vital player in energy metabolism, which means it is involved in the growth, development, and function of cells. Thiamine may also play a role in supporting cognition and nervous system health. 

Thiamine is sometimes called the “anti-stress” vitamin because it supports the body’s ability to function under stressful conditions. Inadequate intake of this vitamin in diet causes dropsy, palpitations and heart failure.

Thiamine acts as an anti-beriberi or antineuritic vitamin. People with beriberi have difficulty standing, walking, and controlling their muscles. This disease was common in the 1800s in Southeast Asian countries when people started eating white “polished” rice instead of brown rice.

Thiamine also acts as an antineuritic which is preventing or relieving inflammation of a nerve.
