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 activity duration than 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.
