Chronic, poorly-controlled diabetes can lead to a variety of complications, some of which can be life-threatening if left untreated. Some of the most common diabetic complications include heart diseases, stroke, nerve and kidney damage, blindness, skin infections etc.
It's therefore important to manage diabetes, not only from the blood sugar level per se, but also counteracting the complications that may arise from high blood sugar levels.
Kordel's Neuromag Benfotiamine Plus 60's is a multivitamin and mineral specially formulated for people with diabetes. Aside from the neurotropic (nerve-protecting) B vitamins – B1, B6 and B12, this product is also added with vitamins B9, E and Magnesium, which are known to be deficient in diabetics.
This formulation offers a whole spectrum of protection from blood sugar management, to supporting energy production and relieving complications from chronic, fluctuating blood sugar levels.
Each 450mg capsule contains 50mg Vitamin B1 (Benfotiamine), 50mg Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine), 20mcg Vitamin B9 (Folic Acid), 300mcg Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamin), 50IU Vitamin E and 50mg Magnesium (as Magnesium Oxide).
Benfotiamine is a fat-soluble thiamine precursor which will transform to active ThDP form of vitamin B1 in our body. Benfotiamine is clinically tested to have 5x better absorption with 3.6x higher bioavailability and up to 7 days retention in our body than regular thiamine.
Growing evidence supports the use of benfotiamine in reducing the risk of diabetic complications such as neuropathy, retinopathy and nephropathy, attributable to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
B12 - Methylcobalamin is the natural form of B12, which produces Methyl with better absorption (no cyanide metabolite as in cyanocobalamin and 1% cyanocobalamin is absorbed). Chronic cyanide exposure depletes the body’s glutathione stores.
Magnesium is a must-have supplement for Diabetics. It controls more than 300 enzymatic processes in our body. Magnesium deficiency increases risk and severity of diabetes and make diabetes control difficult.
Adults: Take 1 – 2 capsules once daily, after meal.
