Benfo Forte Tablet is a unique combination of Benfothiamine with Methylcobalamin, Pyridoxine, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Folic acid.
Benfo Forte is a multivitamin used to treat or prevent diabetic neuropathy. It is an essential nutrient for development of the nervous system. Treatment with benfotiamine leads to increased intracellular thiamine diphosphate levels,a cofactor of transketolase. This enzyme directs advanced glycation and lipoxidation end products (AGE's, ALE's) substrates to the pentose phosphate pathway, thus reducing tissue AGEs. Methylcobalamin is needed for the healthy development and sustenance of our circulatory, immune and nervous systems. Methylcobalamin offers nerve cell support in the brain, and contributes to stronger overall central nervous system function. Alpha-Lipoic Acid or ALA is a naturally occurring compound that's made in the body. It serves vital functions at the cellular level, such as energy production. Alpha-lipoic acid helps to prevent certain kinds of cell damage in the body, and also restores vitamin levels such as vitamin E and vitamin C. Alpha-lipoic acid breaks down carbohydrates and to make energy for the other organs in the body. Alpha-Lipoic Acid works as an antioxidant, which means that it might provide protection to the brain under conditions of damage or injury. The antioxidant effects are also helpful in certain liver diseases.
