Feeling burning in your Lips & Tongue? – YOUR FOOD is YOUR MEDICINE!

2 most common reasons of burning Lips and Tongue:

REASON # 1 Constipation:

There can be many reasons for having burning

sensation on your lips and tongue and the most common

known reason for it is ‘CONSTIPATION.’

about ‘CONSTIPATION,’ just click here to watch

the video on our you tube channel.

Another unknown reason is some nutritional deficiency

and that is vitamin B1 deficiency


REASON #2 Vitamin-B1 (Thiamin) Deficiency:

Your burning lips and tongue

can also be because of your

Vitamin-B1 (thiamin) deficiency.

It is important member of B group of vitamins,

and was the first vitamin to be discovered (hence it’s name-  Vitamin B1!)


Good Natural Vegetarian Sources of Vitamin B1 are:


Raw means uncooked.

Raw sprouted are very good source of B1 vitamin.

You can have hand full of mix raw sprout early in the morning.

You can add mix sprout in your salads.

Can also add sprouts as topping or for dressing

your snacks like poha or upma.

Along with B1 vitamin

it also contains good amount of vitamin -C

which is good antioxidant.


Overnight soaked 3-4 almond can be taken in the morning.

Groundnuts also have good amount of Thiamin.

You can soak groundnut overnight and

can make milk out of it adding little water to it.

You can make milkshake out of this milk .

Why ‘raw’ sprouted?

Vitamin B1 is water soluble vitamin

and bad conductor of heat.

So, when you heat your food, vitamin B1 gets destroyed.

Always have raw food for vitamin B1 to get maximum benefit.


If the burning sensation on your lips and tongue

remains for more than two weeks,

consult your doctor or your dentist.

That’s all for today.

See you next Tuesday with another Tuesday tip.

Till then…… Take care….
