More on B1

I've been looking for more information on the Thiamines after the recent flurry of very useful posts, here's a couple of links I found interesting.

Befotiamine vs. Allithiamine


Benfotiamine does not reach the brain, lipid soluble forms (like Allithiamine) do.


So why does Constantini recommend against lipid soluble forms?

Dear Roy,

Sorry for my late, but unfortunately I can not speak English well, so it's Dr Erika Trevi who is writing these emails to you.

We don't use benfothiamine because previous trials report it does not enter in the neural cells, that's why it is not used for the diseases which don't affect the Central Nervous System (Bettendorff L.).We administer thiamine cloridrate. For your situation 1 intramuscular injection twice a week (or an oral dose of 4 grams each day, two tablets in the morning and two at lunch time) should bring to the complete regression of the symptoms in 1 or 2 months. As an attached link, you'll find a paper with the possible thiamine side effects.

Fat soluble version of Vitamin B1 is dangerous for long term use since they and their wastes get accumulated in the body organs.
