Ultra Benfotiamine by Douglas Laboratories contains the fat-soluble thiamine vitamin called benfotiamine, plus activated vitamin B6, alpha lipoic acid, grape seed extract and pine bark extract to support healthy peripheral circulation and the nervous system, normal kidney function, and AGE (advanced glycation end-product) production that is related to healthy glucose metabolism.
- Support for glucose metabolism, kidney function, and vascular health.
BenfoPure® is a unique proprietary form of Benfotiamine, a fat-soluble form of Vitamin B-1 Thiamine. Studies show that BenfoPure® Benfotiamine is significantly more bioavailable than traditional forms of Vitamin B-1 or thiamine. Its mechanism of action is through blocking biochemical pathways by which high blood sugar damages cells.
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) are proteins or lipids that become glycated after exposure to sugars. The presence and accumulation of AGEs in many different cell types affect extracellular and intracellular structure and function. In high blood sugar environments and in natural aging, AGEs alter cell structure and normal vascular function. Benfotiamine supports normal endothelial function by reducing the risk of AGEs, which is associated with optimal cardiovascular health.
