Addresses the Root Cause of Tingling
A second study found that benfotiamine gets down to the root cause of what causes tingling, numbness and pain: Blood sugar.
You see, when your blood sugar gets too high, your organs are toast. Literally. The toasting occurs during a process called glycation. Quite simply, glycation is a process where sugar chemically combines with protein or fat.
You've seen the effects of glycation in the kitchen. For example, when you put bread in the toaster, the sugars and proteins in the bread combine and cause the bread to turn brown.
This same browning occurs any other time you combine a protein or fat with sugar. For example, it occurs when you glaze a chicken… when you barbecue ribs… or when you caramelize onions. Well, glycation doesn't just occur in the kitchen. It also occurs when you have too much blood sugar.
When you have too much blood sugar, your body can't metabolize it fast enough. As a result, the excess sugar reacts with the proteins in your cells and the proteins become “toasted.” This leads to the creation of nasty substances called Advanced Glycation End Products, or AGEs for short. And it is the AGEs that cause your nerves to be tingly, numb or painful.
To see how benfotiamine relieves tingling, numbness and pain, researchers gave people a meal high in AGEs-producing food. Then they measured how the AGEs affected the patient's bodies. Once they had these measurements, they split the patients into two groups:
One group was given a benfotiamine treatment. The other group was given a placebo. 28 days passed and they measured the blood again. The result: The level of AGEs in the blood of the benfotiamine group dropped by an incredible 40%! Which is amazing, because normally the effects of AGEs are permanent.
So if you suffer from tingling or numbness in your hands and feet, we recommend taking benfotiamine. We think benfotiamine is one of the most important nerve health breakthroughs of the last 50 years.
The result is a product called Advanced Nerve Support. And it has the right amount of benfotiamine that was used in the studies at the quality these studies recommend. But that’s not all… we decided to add four more ingredients. Ingredients such as:
