Thiamine supports glucose metabolism. The more glucose you have
running through the body, the higher the blood sugar. Which would lead to thiamine deficiency. The lipid solubility allows Benfotiamine to penetrate nerve cells more easily. With diabetes, there are four main tissues involved, studies show taking Benfotiamine can prevent or help to treat all of them. Kidney-Nephropathy, Eyes-Retinopathy, Heart vessels-MED. The most preeminent reason why Benfotiamine is taken is due to its significant results in treating Diabetic
