Benfotiamine (S-benzoylthiamine-O-monophosphate) is a synthetic derivative of thiamin, belonging to the family of compounds knows as "allithiamines." Benfotiamine is fat-soluble and more bioavailable and physiologically active than thiamin. Benfotiamine raises the blood level of thiamin pyrophosphate (TPP), the biologically active co-enzyme of thiamin, and stimulates transketolase, a cellular enzyme essential for maintenance of normal glucose metabolic pathways.

Benfotiamine (S-benzoylthiamine-O-monophosphate) is a synthetic derivative of thiamin,belonging to the family of compounds known as "allithiamines." Benfotiamine is fat-soluble and thus more bioavailable and physiologically active than thiamin. Characteristic of the allithiamines is an open thiazole ring within the chemical structure of these thiamine-related compounds, making them fat soluble. In contrast, thiamine, which is water soluble, has a closed thiazole ring. The solubility of benfotiamine, conferred by this open ring, increases its bioavailablity.
