I think I might have made a connection this morning between nerve pain and neuropathy. As I posted in another topic about methylation, which I might have gotten slightly off topic. I talked about how sometimes I supplemented with this vitamin b complex; however, I found that it can make me jittery and anxious at times. Other times, it works great.
Now, it could be the pqq that makes me a little wired, trouble falling asleep, etc.
On the side note, I notice when I take this vitamin, even just 1 or 1/2 capsule (I dump part of it out!), my gait (walking) seems to be better, and I have better blood sugar controls.
Here is an article about the type of vitamin b1 they use in this b complex formula. I noticed it supplemented with Benfotiamine. It says in the description in the formula that it quickly converts into the body, which I believe it does. I notice it does go quickly into my system.
Here are some things I have found out about it:
Benfothiamine is a fat soluble form of vitamin B1. It helps protect from the damaging effects caused by sugar, known as glycation. Glycation is one of the causes of aging, and occurs when sugar causes damage to blood vessels, eyes, kidneys and cells, and in the process forms damaging waste products known AGE (Advanced Glycation End products). Benfotiamine is especially beneficial for people with poor blood sugar control, and is useful for nerve pain, such as lower back pain/sciatica or neuropathies. Benfotiamine also facilitates the production of energy and is therefore useful during times of fatigue, and to enhance exercise performance. Some research also shows that benfotiamine protects heart function (reduces congestive heart failure), and may enhance mood, as well as cognitive function.
I know for the past couple years I have had problems off and on of with my feet, especially my right ankle, swelling, feet falling asleep all the time, trouble moving around, etc. It comes and goes.
I think that my health store carries just a benfothiamine supplement that I might pick up today. I need to get a couple food items anyways.
So, I think that these articles are a good tie into the body circulation topic.
If anyone else has anything else to chime in about it, they can. Just thought it didn’t hurt to share this information.
