Douglas Laboratories - Ultra Benfotiamine - 60 Vegetarian Capsules
Douglas Laboratories Ultra Benfotiamine 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) inhibition that is related to healthy blood sugar metabolism.
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. In Europe, benfotiamine has been utilized for decades in reducing the negative impact of sustained high blood sugar levels. Benfotiamine supports the body through blocking biochemical pathways by which high blood sugar damages cells. Excessive sugar intake and high blood sugar are associated with a wide range of health complications. Studies have demonstrated the following benefits:
- Benfotiamine helps support normal peripheral circulation
- Benfotiamine may reduce discomfort and dysfunction, helping to maintain a healthy nervous system while protecting against oxidative stress in the brain.
- Benfotiamine supports normal kidney function.
- Benfotiamine maintains normal endothelial function by reducing the risk of AGEs, which is associated with optimal cardiovascular health.
Vitamin B6 has been shown to help provide comfort for peripheral nerves, especially in those individuals with pyridoxine deficiency. Pyridoxal-5-Phosphate (P5P) is the active form of pyridoxine that the body utilizes directly without need for conversion from pyridoxine. Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is among the well-researched nutrients for support of peripheral nerve function. ALA may normalize nitric oxide levels to support increased circulation to the neurons. One study confirmed ALA resulted in significant reductions in lipid peroxidation.
Proanthocyanidins are a class of potent antioxidants found in pine bark extract, grape seed extract, and many other plants. OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) has been shown to neutralize free radicals, support the strength and structure of blood vessels, and support the normal inflammatory response.
MegaNatural BP Grape seed extract is different from other grape seed extracts and made by a patented water extraction process that yields a high grade extract with a low molecular weight. Mega Natural BP extract contains over 90% proanthocyanidins. Studies in humans also show it can help maintain normal arterial function and endothelium cell function.
