BenfoPure® is a unique proprietary form of Benfot iamine, 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. I t s mechanism of action is through blocking biochemical pathways by which high blood sugar damages cells.
A dvanced glycation end products (AGEs) are proteins or lipids that become glycated after exposure to sugars. The presence and accumulation of AGEs in many different cell types affect extracellular and intracellular structure and function. In high blood sugar environments and in natural aging, AGEs alter cell structure and normal vascular function. Benfotiamine supports 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. Alphalipoic 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. In animal research, A LA supplementation result e d in increased blood flow and nerve conduction.
Proanthocyanidins are a class of potent antioxidants found in pine bark extract, grape seed extract, and many other plants. OPC (oligomeric proanthocyanidins) neutralize free radicals, support the strength and structure of blood vessels . MegaNatural ® BP Grape seed extract is different from other grape seed extracts and made by a patented water extraction proce ss that yields a pure extract with a low molecular weight. Mega Natural BP extract contains over 90% proanthocyanidins. Studies in humans have shown it supports healthy arterial and endothelium cell function.
