Fat Soluable Vitamin B-1 (Thiamin). Suitable for Vegetarians. Benfotiamine is a more bioavailable derivative of thiamine (Vitamin B-1). Unlike normal thiamine benfotiamine is fat-soluble and more physiologically active. It supports normal glucose utilization by stimulating transketolase the enzyme essential for maintaining normal glucose metabolic pathway. Normal glucose levels are also vital for the promotion of endothelial cell health in the kidneys and retinas.
"Can't say how well these work because I threw them away. The tablet are a pressed powder form and hard to take because they can get stuck in your throat. Also, they crumble! I put a couple in a pill box and they were falling apart less than 24 hours later. I've never had that happen with any other tablet."
