The Problem of AGEing
Benfotiamine is a natural form of thiamin (vitamin B1). Thiamin is an effective inhibitor of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs). AGEs are produced by a detrimental chemical process in which proteins are damaged by sugar products. This damage results in deactivated enzymes, damaged DNA and unhealthy signaling in the body. Thiamin blocks the last and most important step of this process, when harmful sugar products are irreversibly converted into AGEs. Thiamin also activates an enzyme which helps the body shunt excess sugar products into a safer metabolic pathway.
A Break for Diabetics
Since AGEs are produced when there is an accumulation of sugar, it is an especially damaging process in diabetics. Benfotiamine has been shown to not only reduce AGE formation, but to protect tissue structure and function in diabetics, including nerve and kidney function. It also protects diabetic retinas from AGE damage.
Effective in the Body, Not Just in the Lab
Although thiamin is a powerful AGE-inhibitor, it is poorly absorbed by the body. Benfotiamine maintains thiamin‚„s AGE benefits while being able to pass directly into cells. This makes it more bioavailable and less toxic than other thiamin supplements.
