This product is a life saver! I have diabeties and get awful pain in my feet which would often keep me awake through the night unless I took pain killers. I read about the benefits of Benfotiamine a two or three years ago and started taking it right away. I have found this brand to be the most effective. Well, I've only tried one other brand and it takes longer to work. I know this because when I run out of the Benfotiamine the pain begins to return. One hint about this product: Don't give up on it too early. If you are taking it for the first time, it may take two or three weeks of faithfully taking a high dose to kick in. The scientific papers say the higher to dose, the more effective it is, and I found this to be true. I take around 800 - 1,000 mg until the pain subsides and then around 450-600 daily. I am so thankful for this suppliment. I hope it works as well for you, because I know how horrible that pain can be.
I have type 2 diabetes and have been experiecing numness and discomfort in my feet and lower legs along with occasional nighttime cramps. I also have chronic gout which complicates everything. I sometimes think the Benfotiamine has helped with the numbness and discomfort but other times I'm not so sure. I'm taking two capsules twice a day. Age 68.

I was developing diabetes type II (as it turns out due to undiagnosed genetic factors), so decided to try this product, as I did have vitamin B1 deficiency. I had metabolic (mitochondrial) malfunction, so even if usually sceptical of the synthetic vitamins, I decided to test the claim that benfotiamine can pass the phosholipid barrier and enter the cells - where the effects of diabetes are felt. In just two weeks (presumably because it only was mildly elevated) my glucose stabilised, and the dreadful tiredness abated! I still take it occasionally, for as long as I need it.

I love it. I wake up without pain and a lot less stiff. By the way, it is the only benfotiamine a found without silica, that horrible ingredient that gives me and many others, nausea and headache.
Great for Nerve Health

but I like the other one that contains more than just benfotiamine in it.
Dont know if its working all the way/Revised didnt work
Posted by Reviewer1116862 on Apr 17, 2012
I feel a little better but its not helping the sciatica pain when it gets extremely severe. Where you need to go to get a pain shot. And helps a little with the throbbing pain and muscle pain. been on it 1 1/2 months so far. They say be on it 3 moths and if doesnt work no need to take it..good customer service on bottle from a homeopathic doctor. Revised review, didnt help my pain at all. Had to try the other formula after the 3rd month.
Help with Peripheral neuropathy after Chemotherapy

I have found this helpful in the reduction of nerve pain and discomfort after chemotherapy. I use this along with the Benfotiamine Multi B. Previously to using these I had constant burning and uncomfortable feeling in my feet which kept me awake at night.
