Why Choose Both Life Extension Benfotiamine with Thiamine?
Benfotiamine and thiamine are both necessary for unlocking the true nutritional potential of vitamin B1. For example, transketolase is an enzyme which is critical to blood sugar metabolism. Like many enzymes, transketolase requires a co-factor in order to function optimally. In particular, it benefits greatly from the presence of 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.
By combining both benfotiamine and thiamine, this potent supplement from Life Extension ensures that every cell of the body is able to access the nutritional benefits of vitamin B1. These benefits range from brain and cognitive function to clear eyesight and energy levels.
