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.
