Benfotiamine, pyridoxine hydrochloride.
1 dragee contains: Benfotiamine (vitamin B1 derivative) 100 mg, Pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6) 100 mg.
Gluten-free, contains no lactose.
Benfotiamine is a derivative of vitamin B1. It is absorbed by the body many times better than equal quantities of the traditional water-soluble vitamin B1. After being taken up by the intestine, benfotiamine is converted in the body to vitamin B1 which is active in the neurological system.
Pyridoxine hydrochloride is also designated as vitamin B6.
These two vitamins are micronutrients which are essential for life.
If they are not taken in by the body in sufficient quantities, they may in time result in deficiency syndromes such as neurological system dysfunction, usually accompanied by functional disturbances in the metabolism of the nerves. The consequences, especially in the legs and feet, may be pains and sensory disturbances.
