In brief: Inhibits AGE's

Benfotiamine is a synthetic fat-soluble derivative of vit b1 (thiamine) that prevents formation of advanced glycation end-products (age's), which are molecules damaged by high blood sugar.
Clinically it helps treat diabetic neuropathy, retinopathy & nephropathy (nerve, eye & kidney damage) & may have anti-aging benefits in non-diabetics. For more info see http://www.Benfotiamine.Org/faq.Htm.
