iHerb Customer Reviews
The "Read-More-Reviews--Here" concluded that allithiamine, a disulfide derivative of vitamin B-1 or thiamine, is "foul" because the "foul" taste persisted for some time. Yes, no wonder it persisted in her/him for a long time. Take a look at how many things this person tries and reviews. It is no wonder that allithiamine's tasted foul to this person who takes everything but 'essence of kitchen sink' and has reviews that span ten pages. This person obviously has gastroparesis that is supplement induced. Allithiamine if taken properly (with sips of water before and after taking it) in an individual who does not obviously have gastroparesis does not taste "foul" or persist in the stomach for a long time. Allithiamine is a form of vitamin B-1 that both crosses the bilipid layer separating the inside and outside of the cell AND crosses the blood brain barrier. It can be very useful in the treatment of centrally driven (i.e., brain driven) severe snoring. If one has gastroparesis whereby food and pills persist in the stomach for a LONG time, then this disulfide derivative of vitamine B-1 can taste "foul". It also can taste bad if one plunks three capsules into a dry mouth and does not wash it down promptly with water. Allitiamine can be an alternative to Benfotiamine, another fat soluble derivative of thiamine that DOES NOT, unlike Allithiamine, cross the blood brain barrier.
Foul. I threw it away - it was *that* awful to take. Think nasty artificial garlic-flavoured cough medicine that you end up 'tasting' all day or something (opposite end of the spectrum from yummy roasted garlic etc). Won't buy again and wouldn't recommend. If this review was helpful to you, please click YES below - thank you.
