Mega Benfotiamine Supports Healthy Blood Sugar Metabolism

Benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of vitamin B1 (thiamine), supports healthy blood sugar metabolism and helps protect the body’s tissues against advanced glycation end products and oxidative stress. For example, the enzyme transketolase is critical to blood sugar metabolism. Like many enzymes, transketolase requires a co-factor. In this case, it needs assistance from thiamine. Unfortunately, thiamine is water-soluble, which makes it less available to the interior of the cell. Benfotiamine is fat-soluble and can easily penetrate into the inside of cells. It is also more bioavailable than the water-soluble thiamine.

 

In a landmark study, benfotiamine effectively increased transketolase activity in cell cultures by an astounding 300%, compared to a mere 20% for thiamine. This robust activation was sufficient to block three of the four major metabolic pathways leading to blood vessel damage.1 Benfotiamine also blocks the activation of the transcription factor known as nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-kB), which is implicated in numerous inflammatory conditions.1

Overall, benfotiamine can activate glucose metabolism and promote healthy blood glucose levels in those already within normal range. Benfotiamine also helps maintain healthy endothelial function and supports the health of the nerves, kidneys, eyes, blood vessels, and heart.

Quality: Making smart health choices begins with demanding excellence. You should know that we never accept anything less than the absolute best: our quality control standards actually exceed FDA mandates. Furthermore, Life Extension has earned GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) registration from NSF International — an independent organization that provides product manufacturing and testing standards for public health and the environment.
Purity: We source only the best raw materials for our nutritional supplements. We only do business with the world’s most reputable suppliers, and all raw materials are carefully processed to preserve chemical complexity. So you know that what’s on our product label is what’s in your supplement. Nothing more … and certainly nothing less … goes into your body.

Potency: Many commercial manufacturers emphasize that their supplements cost less. But cheaper is not better, because they do this by using less-than-optimal doses along with less-than-premium-quality ingredients. We never choose our ingredients based on cost — which means you always get the most nutritional potency for your dollar. And when it comes to your health, why would you settle for anything less?

Unique formulations: Our innovative formulas are based on the latest research, but also something more … our passionate belief in a clinically validated, scientific approach to better nutrition. It’s been the bedrock of our business for over 35 years. And our accumulated body of knowledge makes it possible for us to develop unique formulations you won’t find anywhere else on the market. Simply put, unequaled experience leads to unmatched products.
