Benfotiamine – Fat Soluble Form of B1 Thiamine
Benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of vitamin B1 (thiamine), supports healthy blood sugar metabolism and helps protect against advanced glycation and oxidative stress. In studies, proven to block three of the four major metabolic pathways leading to blood vessel damage and inflammation. Benfotiamine with Thiamine is a low-cost dietary supplement that can help maintain blood sugar levels in those already within normal range, and support normal nerves, kidneys, eyes, blood vessels, and heart.
- The Most Active Form of Thiamine
- Helps Sugar Conversion Into Energy
- Support For Normal Glucose Metabolic Pathways
- Supported By Clinical Studies
Supports optimal blood sugar levels
Benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of vitamin B1 (thiamine), may help your body to support healthy blood sugar metabolism. It acts through several mechanisms to seemingly block the biochemical pathways by which high blood sugar wreaks havoc throughout the body. In a study published in the journal Diabetes Care, scientists demonstrated for the first time that benfotiamine (1050 mg per day) effectively reduced postprandial endothelial dysfunction and oxidative stress normally seen in patients with high blood sugar who were fed a heat-processed meal with a high content of advanced glycation end products.
Mega Benfotiamine may help maintain already-normal blood sugar levels and support the health of the nerves, kidneys, eyes, blood vessels, and heart. Mega Benfotiamine 250mg (S-benzyolthiamine-O-monophosphate) is a synthetic derivative of thiamin (Vitamin B1), belonging to the family of compounds known as “allithiamines.”
Benfotiamine is fat-soluble and more bioavailable and physiologically active than thiamin. Benfotiamine is reported to raise the blood level of thiamin pyrophosphate (TPP), the biologically active coenzyme of thiamin, and stimulate transkotelase, a cellular enzyme essential for maintenance of normal glucose metabolic pathways.
