    Product Overview


    • For Longer Life
    • Fat & Water Soluble Vitamin B1
    • Dietary Supplement

    Benfotiamine is the fat soluble form of vitamin B1 clinically tested to offer protection against advanced glycation end products, typically associated with blood glucose irregularities.

    Mega Benfotiamine

    Benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of vitamin B1 (thiamine), supports healthy blood sugar metabolism and helps protect the body’s tissues against advanced glycation end products and oxidative stress.66 For example, the enzyme transketolase is critical to blood sugar metabolism. Like many enzymes, transketolase requires a co-factor. In this case, it needs assistance from thiamine. Unfortunately, thiamine is water-soluble, which makes it less available to the interior of the cell. Benfotiamine is fat-soluble and can easily penetrate into the inside of cells. It is also more bioavailable than the water-soluble thiamine.

    In a landmark study, benfotiamine effectively increased transketolase activity in cell cultures by an astounding 300%, compared to a mere 20% for thiamine. This robust activation was sufficient to block three of the four major metabolic pathways leading to blood vessel damage. Benfotiamine also blocks the activation of the transcription factor known as nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB), which is implicated in numerous inflammatory conditions.

    Overall, benfotiamine can activate glucose metabolism and promote healthy blood glucose levels in those already within normal range. Benfotiamine also helps maintain healthy endothelial function and supports the health of the nerves, kidneys, eyes, blood vessels, and heart.

    May Help Lessen Nerve Pain

    Posted by iHerb Customer on Nov 03, 2017 | Verified Purchase

    With some products it is hard to tell if they work, so all I can relate is that when my husband was in dire pain with a pinched nerve we looked for supplements that fought inflammation and therefore pain. This came highly recommended. After taking it for a month or so he is in less pain. In fact he is in the process of reducing the amount of medication.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    This is a very good form of B1 as it is more bioavailable than ordinary B1.

    Little bit of Relief so far

    Posted by iHerb Customer on May 25, 2017 | Verified Purchase

    To be honest I expected more from these. I actually get more pain relief to my feet from an Asprin. I take 4 a day, that should be sufficient, or maybe I need to wait a little longer. I really don't know. I'll keep the faith and purchase 1 more bottle. If that doesn't work then I'll know I've been caught. Simple as that
