This dietary supplement contains a high potency amount of benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of thiamine (vitamin B1) that is highly absorbable.
Thiamine is an essential B-vitamin that plays a key role in many functions throughout the body. It is crucial for proper nerve conduction, muscle function, and synthesis of genetic material. It also helps convert carbohydrates into energy and supports antioxidant protection. Major food sources of thiamine include meat (especially lean pork), legumes, whole or enriched grain products, and sunflower seeds.
To support optimal thiamine nutrition, this product provides benfotiamine, a naturally-occurring, fat-soluble form of thiamine that has up to 3.6 times higher absorption than water-soluble forms of thiamine that are more commonly used in dietary supplements. This highly bioavailable form of thiamine is ideal for efficiently replenishing vitamin B1 levels and is provided in small, easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsules.
This product can be used whenever a need for supplemental thiamine exists. It may be particularly useful for pre- and post-bariatric surgery patients and individuals with malabsorption syndromes. Clinical studies show that benfotiamine may be especially beneficial for patients with diabetes mellitus, chronic renal insufficiency, and chronic alcoholism to support neurological function and antioxidant activity. This product is free of the following common allergens: milk/casein, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat/gluten, corn, yeast, and soybeans. Contains no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.
