Doctor's Best Benfotiamine

Benfotiamine (S-benzoylthiamine-O-monophosphate) is a synthetic derivative of thiamin (Vitamin B1) belonging to the family of compounds known as antihistamines. Benfotiamine is fat-soluble and more bioavailable and physiologically active than thiamine.* Benfotiamine helps maintain healthy cells in the presence of blood glucose, provides support against oxidative stress, and supports healthy aging.*

How does it work?

Benfotiamine raises the blood level of thiamin pyrophosphate (TPP), the biologically active coenzyme of thiamin, and stimulates transketolase, a cellular enzyme essential for maintenance of normal glucose metabolic pathways. Benfotiamine can greatly improve thiamin status, especially in comparison with regular forms of thiamin. In a randomized, double-blind crossover trial comparing bioavailability of benfotiamine to that of thiamin mononitrate (the most common supplemental form of vitamin B1) in 12 individuals, benfotiamine caused an average 5-fold greater increase in blood thiamine levels than thiamin mononitrate, with a concomitant greater thiamine concentration in red blood cells. Benfotiamine is converted to S-benzoyl thiamin (through removal of the O-monophosphate by the digestive tract), which readily passes through intestinal cells and is converted into thiamin.

Why take Best Benfotiamine?

Benfotiamine is fat-soluble and more bioavailable and physiologically active than thiamine.* Benfotiamine helps maintain healthy cells in the presence of blood glucose, provides support against oxidative stress, and supports healthy aging.* Benfotiamine helps maintain healthy glucose metabolism by increasing blood and tissue levels of thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP), the biologically active co-enzyme form of thiamine.*TPP acts as a co-enzyme for three critical enzymes involved in glucose metabolism: 1) transketolase, 2) pyruvate dehydrogenase, and 3) a-ketoglutarate decarboxylase. The latter two enzymes are involved in utilizing glucose for fuel. Thus, TTP is vital to the cell's energy supply.
