Benfotiamine is a lipid-soluble derivative of thiamin that demonstrates improved absorption and duration of
activity compared to water-soluble thiamin. Benfotiamine activates transketolase activity, thereby facilitating
conversion of harmful glucose metabolites and positively affecting AGE formation. It supports peripheral
nerve health and may support vascular health, including the microvasculature of the retina and kidney.
Benfotiamine is also an excellent way to improve thiamin status.
