BenfoMax helps maintain healthy advanced glycation end (AGE) activity to support vascular, nerve, retinal and kidney cellular health. As a primary ingredient, benfotiamine has been researched to support retinal function as well as nerve comfort.
Benfotiamine, S-benzoylthiamine-O-monophosphate, is a fat soluble vitamin B1(thiamine) derivative that exhibits enhanced bioavailability and bioactivity. It is found naturally in small amounts in vegetables from the Allium genus, including garlic, onions, and leeks. Experimental pharmacokinetic data indicates that benfotiamine has a greater absorption rate and duration of activity compared to water-soluble thiamine, including thiamine HCl. It has also been found to be better tolerated than thiamine. Research suggests that benfotiamine maintains healthy advanced glycation end (AGE) product activity to support vascular, nerve, retinal and kidney cellular health.
