Product Details
N4N tablet is a unique combination of benfothiamine with methylcobalamin, folic acid pyridoxine, ALA and inositol. This medication is a vitamin prescribed to treat or prevent beri-beri, wenicke-korsakoff syndrome, 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. If you have low levels of vitamin B12, you may feel weak, have less energy, and experience slow thinking. 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. Inositol is helpful in preventing diabetic neuropathy.

The trio of methylcobalamin, folic acid and pyridoxine helps in bringing down the level of homocysteine in blood, the major factor for atherosclerosis. Thus, this medicine reduces the major risk factors for atherosclerosis and neuropathies.

Use under medical supervision.
