The most important thing when dealing with a case of Leigh’s disease is improving the strength of the central nervous system. This is most effectively done with nuts, which provide a steady stream of vitamins, most notably Vitamin B1 (thiamine).Thiamine is well known to improve the body’s metabolic functions and support nervine health. Pistachios, almonds, walnuts and cashews are all great sources of not only vitamin B1, but also fiber and other vitamins and minerals that our bodies need to stay healthy!
