I take this B1 (water soluble) together more importantly, with Benfotiamine(fat soluble B1) for years and it really does work ! I am a type 2 diabetes sufferer with all the usual complications including kidney and nerve damage. I can definately say that it helps tremendously with my peripheral neuropathy. no more tingling, numbness, burning feeling with the hands and feet.Also read R&D university Reports that it may also help with diabetic kidney damage. I take 3xBenfotiamine and 2xB1 a day. It works for me !

I am a diabetes type 2 sufferrer. I take chromium WITH alpha lipoic acid and also magnesium. What a difference it makes! I no longer have any Hypo's. My hunger/food cravings are well under control. I have managed to reduce my insulin dosage and intend to continue. I need to start a daily exercise program to help me further. The above-mentioned relatively inexpensive supplements have definately helped me.
contains a good high dose of ALA per capsule. I take it together with magnesium citrate and chromium to curb my type 2 diabetes. It works wonderfully ! No more hunger and sugar cravings. It prevents Hypo's when you're blood sugar levels fall low. Usually you have all the syptoms like cravings, cold sweats,tiredness,confusion etc. I no longer have them, therefore no need to snack at odd times.Takes you comfortably through the day till your next mealtime without any symptoms !
I bought this for my wifes Artritic knee problem. You got to take these over a long period of time and allow your joints to build up the cartilage before you see any tangible results. take this together with 'Yarrow' Ginger for the inflammation. A good size bottle and unusually, very reasonably priced coming from Solgar.

This is my follow up review. I have been using this product for over a year now and it really works !! I am a diabetic on insulin with kidney damage and suffering retinopathy, all of which are diabetic related. The syptoms of nerve damage have dissapeared. I am so glad I can feel the return of normasl sensations in all my limbs. I take two inthe morning and one at night. It is worth having a try if you are a diabetic sufferer, it certainly has changed my life. Good Luck !

Just finished my first bottle. I bought it to help with my diabetic vision problems. I cant say whether its working at this stage. Maybe its a little early. Encouraging reviews as a joint pain reliever though. I will continue to use it as it may be helping with my other diabetic ailments.
I have been using Benfotiamine(fat soluble B1) together with the regular water soluble B1(thiamine) and it works wonders for diabetics suffering from neuropathy problems. No more cramps, pains,numbness, pins and needles effect.heard ongoing reorts and studies that it may also help with diabetic related kidney disease. I take 3xbenfotiamine a day and 2xB1(thiamine) a day ! I would certainly recommend this. have a go for a month and see the results. You will be pleasantly surprised !

I am a regular Q10 user and i find this product to be advantageous since it has a higher dosage and reasonably priced.

A good product. I used to take this a few years ago than switched to capsules and tablets. switched back again because it is easily absorbed. I think i will stick to this product.
I have been taking coQ10 regularly for a long time now. I even switched over to the better absorbable Ubiquinol version for a time. But, that is more expensive to buy, so I switched back to this. It appears to be good value for money with a reasonable dosage per capsule. So far, so good !
