Promotes healthy digestion cellular energy and healthy nerve and muscle function.*. What is benfotiamine? . Benfotiamine is derived from thiamine (vitamin B1) part of the family commonly known as B-vitamins. It is well understood that thiamine plays a vital role in nerve function energy dynamics and the digestive process.* Thiamine is well researched for its important role in the metabolism of sugars.* . . As people age the conversion of sugars in the body can lead to age-associated glycation end products (AGEs) which are created inside the body through normal metabolism and aging. This process involves the adherence of sugars to proteins reducing the proper function of those proteins and the accumulation of these undesireable AGEs. Benfotiamine plays a role in blocking the age-associated glycation end products (AGEs).*. . Benfotiamine is an amphiphilic S-acyl thiamine derivative that is virtually fat soluble. It is very well absorbed in the body but does not appear to cross the blood-brain barrier.*. . How does benfotiamine support health? Supports the digestion of food and carbohydrates.*. Supports desirable by-products related to sugar metabolism.*. Slows the formation of age-associated glycation end products which can be caused by aging.*.

"When I tore the seal off of this bottle of Vitacost Benfotiamine there was a really strong odor of sulfur or rotten eggs. The label states this product is free of milk, eggs, etc. My husband has a PhD in nutrition and when he smelled the bottle he stated that he did not know what would cause such a smell, but he would not recommend using these. I previously used Doctor's Best Benfotiamine and never experienced this smell with them."
"I can't really tell yet whether taking 300 mg Benfotiamine twice each day will solve my problem of Peropheral Neuropathy in my feet, I have only used the Benfotiamine since i received it in the mail from you. So far I still have the problem."
"It seems to work. I noticed a change in my fatigue within the first day. I don't know if there is a limit to the quantity one can take. I don't know what the simptoms would be if I have taken too much of the product."
"Benfotiamine is a form of vitamin B1, and it's great for reducing the nervous, irritable feelings that come with stressful situatiions. It has definitely increased my overall sense of calm and well-being. Great product!"
