Benfotiamine (benfothiamine) is an allithiamine, a naturally-occurring lipophilic form of thiamin (vitamin B1). Benfotiamine's superior ability to penetrate cell membranes increases its bioavailability over conventional thiamin supplements, thiamin pyrophosphate, and other allithiamines.
Benfotiamine is a powerful "late-phase" inhibitor of Advanced Glycation Endproduct (AGE) formation (so called AGE-breaker), acting through several mechanisms to reduce the irreversible nonenzymatic modification of the structure and function of bodily proteins by sugars, resulting in documented maintenance of the structure and function of retinal, nervous, glomerulal, and other tissues.
Benfotiamine relieves the symptoms of diabetic neuropathy and may reduce the risk of diabetic complications.
