Highly bioavailable vitamin B1*
- Supports nerve function
- Prevents thiamin deficiency
- Supports glucose metabolism
Benfotiamine is a form of thiamin (vitamin B1), an essential nutrient that is one of the eight water-soluble vitamins in the B-complex family. It plays a critical role in ensuring a healthy nervous system and enhancing the cardiovascular functioning of the body. Thiamin is an effective inhibitor of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). It also activates an enzyme which supports the body’s ability to properly disperse sugar throughout the body.
Some of the symptoms of thiamine deficiency are poor appetite, digestive problems, degeneration of parts of the brain, nerve damage, vascular resistance, and dilation of the heart, among others. While thiamin is poorly absorbed by the body, benfotiamine helps maintain thiamin’s AGE-inhibiting benefits and allows it to pass directly into cells.
AOR’s Benfotiamine highly bioavailable formula helps support nerve function, promotes healthy aging, and prevents thiamine deficiency.
DISCUSSION: Benfotiamine is a naturally-occurring form of thiamin (vitamin B1). Benfotiamine’s superior ability to penetrate cell membranes increases its bioavailability over conventional thiamin supplements. This allows for the use of benfotiamine to promote all of the benefits of vitamin B1.*
