I've been taking benfotiamine for a month and tried this the evening I got it. Don't take it at night as it will possibly keep you awake from the extra energy. I've had lupus/fibro/cfs flares whilst taking "normal" doses of B1 so I needed something more potent. This does the job and seems to be decent quality. Glad I found this combination with the magnesium. 👍 if this helped
The first vitamin supplement I started taking and immediately felt the effects of was vitamin B1. I used to suffer from hangovers due to my weakness for alcohol, but since I started taking vitamin B1, I have been able to go to work normally the next day without getting drunk. In addition, the mouth ulcers that have always plagued me have been drastically reduced, if not eliminated.

With my multivitamin, I had Niacin Flush so badly. So I found out exactly what my system is lacking and now I take only those supplements. Thankfully, iHerb carries a wide assortment of specific vitamins/minerals.
B1 is important. See Nobel Laureate Dr. Linus Pauling best-selling book 'How to live longer and feel better" Every day I take this, plus: . Vitamin C 8000 mg per day ( divided 3 times) . Multivitamin . B Complex . Vitamin A 25000 IU . Vit D3 5000 IU . Vit E 1000 IU . Zinc 50 mg . Selenium 200 mcg . Omega 3 2000 mg . Kelp - Iodine 1000 mcg . Calcium/Magnesium tablet
Purchased to help combat fatigue thats getting me down, on day 2 so its too early to comment on effect yet. The tablets are quite large, I can struggle with swallowing tablets but manage to get these down ok despite the size. Note that these include magnesium citrate which doesnt agree with some people, including me (can cause diarrhea). The dose in these isnt high enough to send me running to the loo but I do note a slight discomfort. If you tend to get constipation then this would be a benefit! Good thing is the pill can be broken in half so I´ll be trying that and taking in 2 doses through the day. Hope this helps, wishing you well on your journey to feeling better.
Great supplement from a brand that can be trusted. I was very surprised to find B-1 at such a high dose per tablet/capsule. I had no idea until i decided to do a high dose detoxification protocol needing about 1800 mg a day. What a pleasant find at such an affordable price. This vitamin is very vital for adrenal health and other carbohydrate metabolism pathways and i hope to get great results with this. I will be back to update and for now highly recommend this dose for those needing high dose B1. Its very convenient. . Please click the like button . Thanks Ib
I take this for not feeling overwhelmed and stressed but also for avoiding getting mosquito bites. It works excellent!! When you take B1 and quite high doses you leave a smell that mosquito’s don’t like. Even if they sometimes bite I don’t get this big bites and allergic reaction. However if I forget to take one capsule and it was around 24 hours since the last they usually start to bite me more again. I told many friends to try and all of them told they noticed a huge difference. It’s definitely wort trying.
Excellent B-1 high potency tablets. B-1 is a water-soluble vitamin, a colorless crystalline substance that breaks down when heated. Vitamin B-1 (Thiamin) is essential for energy metabolism, important for maintaining ionic gradients, mechanisms of nerve impulse conduction, acetylcholine synthesis and other processes in the nervous system. Protects cell membranes from the toxic effects of peroxidation products. Alcoholism causes deficiency of this vitamin due to impaired absorption, use and storage of the nutrient in the body. The risk group for developing vitamin B-1 deficiency includes patients on parenteral nutrition without thiamine supplements, as well as patients on prolonged renal dialysis.
