Benfotiamine is a more bioavailable derivative of thiamine (Vitamin B-1). Unlike normal thiamine, benfotiamine is fat-soluble and more physiologically active. It supports normal glucose utilization by stimulating transketolase, the enzyme essential for maintaining normal glucose metabolic pathways. Normal glucose levels are also vital for the promotion of endothelial cell health in the kidneys and retinas.

Asked on: February 21, 2013 Question: If I have symptoms of neuropathy but, have been tested for and do not have diabetes could these tablets help. I have pins and needles feeling in my feet and hands. Also sometimes sharp pain as a knife was sticking you. Worse at night.
00A: I'm sorry to hear of your bad night. Studies have shown that benfotiamine seems to help prevent complications of neuropathy, retinopathy and nephropathy by inhibiting the build-up of glucose in the vessels. Studies have also shown that benfotiamine may help relieve neuropathic pain. Before starting Befotiamine for any medical condition, it is always best to consult with your physician and discuss the additions of any supplements to them.
