pheripheral neuropathy amazing!this is Amazing! I've been taking this high dose of B1 benfotiamine recommended by Dr Berg on YouTube for natural pain relief, and particularly for pheripheral neuropathy. this helps me the most out of all supplements I have tried, for nerve damage, where I get pheripheral neuropathy pain / tingling / numbness / hypersensitivity in my hands and feet all of the time. it also helps me with feeling the cold so badly in the winter months. I recommend this product so so much +++++++
Good/badWasteful packaging - minus one star Not disclosing the amount of sulbutiamine - minus another star Other than those two issues, I purchase from this brand regularly as they have hard-to-find formulations. Sulbutiamine & allithiamine and I believe also benfotiamine are all fat-soluble versions of B1 that are highly usable by the body instead of regular thiamine hydrochloride supplements which are made thru a horrible process involving ammonia, coal tar and some other crap which is why they smell so bad. These fat-soluble versions are also synthetic but multiple studies have shown their effectiveness. There is a Dr.Berg video discussing benfotiamine for diabetics (you need thiamine to process sugar) where he discusses using four times the recommended daily dosage to megadose your system and basically saturate its b1 needs so it’s kind of forced to absorb it all …he explains it much better but i have recently started trying that and so far have noticed marked difference in hair growth patterns, still awaiting other results.
Aha! For some reason it's hard to find dose with Sulbutiamine, which is important as it shown to cross BBB to raise thiamine levels in the brain, unlike just straight Benfotiamine. This one saves the day. Thanks Natural Factors! They also have other rare formulations so I always on lookout for their products.
I wake up multiple times in the night to use the restroom since I always have the feeling at the back of my head that my bladder needs emptying. This was annoying me. I say a video of Dr. Berg where he covered this topic and he suggested that B1 deficiency could be causing this. I hence wanted to take supplementation and was looking for a safe one. This search ended when I found this product which also is coenzymated. I have already taken it for a month and I can surely see a marginal improvement in my condition. I have ordered two more and will continue to take it until my condition is full reversed. The product has all natural ingredients and am worry-free when I take these. Overall ordered and shipping process from iHerb is good as they stick to the promised delivery timelines.
Really good combo of vitamin b1. Sulbutiamine for example is really hard to find and this possibly the only product on iHerb that has it along with Bentofiamine! This products packs a wide range of organic and natural compounds as well. Make sure you take magnesium with any b1 product as it assists with its method of delivery and enhances absorption.
I stopped take this B1 supplement to observe if I felt any different. After a week, the nerve in my upper right shoulder became so painful, I could hardly sleep. So I have resumed taking 2 tablets a day. My research revealed "biocoenzymated benfotiamine" is the best way to enhance absorption.; yet, it is difficult to find.
We enjoy sulbutiamine's brain-boosting properties. However, it's been getting tougher to find. Benfotiamine is a close second, so since this has a bit of sulbutiamine, we take it with some healthy fat (nuts, sunflower lecithin, omega 3s, etc.) and enjoy a better than coffee buzz without the jitters.
I had searched for an all natural B1 vitamin and glad I found these. The tablets are very small and easy to take. There is no after taste or upset feeling later, so it must be easily absorbed. It seems like a very good quality because after taking it a few days I noticed results. The ingredients seem to have a calming effect and stress is not so noticeable. They fact it is all natural is a big factor in my purchasing it. Will continue to take it as long as I see the good results.
One of the good products for benfotiamine and you can feel the improvement in energy and circulation in the hands and legs. Helps with blood sugar control and gives a person energy. Avoid taking any caffeine with this product as caffeine inhibits this B1 vitamin absorption. Have bought this product several times.
It was too strong for my current condition, it might make my heart beat fast, so I have to wait till I get stronger and more stability to try it again. Just started taking it everyday now since I finally get back to my normal weight，I was too under weight for a year and it was a challenge even with taking certain supplement. I started noticing the nerve system is functioning much better and the clogging feeling at the right side of my brain area seems to gradually open up. I finally get the experience of being the normal me mentally and emotionally during some time of the day. Try to take it in the morning，not the evening to keep me get into better quality of sleep.
