B1 protocol

Anyone familiar with this as opposed to thiamine hcl?

Benfotiamine is a dietary supplement that is a derivative of thiamine (also known as vitamin B1), a B vitamin found in a variety of foods including legumes, nuts and seeds, wheat germ, fortified grain products such as bread, cereal, pasta, rice, and flour, and some meat and fish. Since benfotiamine is fat-soluble and appears to have higher bioavailability and absorption by the body than thiamine, some people use it to raise their thiamine levels and manage certain health conditions.

Doc Costantini says benfo does not enter the brain on cellular level.

I choose to follow his advice. Thiamine hcl.


I noticed it is synthetic which gave me pause.
