Also known as
Sulbutiamine is a synthetic derivative of thiamine (vitamin B1). In France, it is used to treat symptoms of weakness or fatigue. Efforts to develop thiamine derivatives with better bioavaiability than thiamine were conducted in the 1950s, mainly in Japan. These efforts led to the discovery of allicin (diallyl thiosulfinate) in garlic, which became a model for medicinal chemistry efforts to create other thiamine disulfides, including sulbutiamine. These compounds are hydrophobic, easily pass from the intestines to the bloodstream, and are reduced to thiamine by cysteine or glutathione.
Recommended amount per serving is 100-500 mg. Do not consume without an accurate mg scale.
Because thiamine deficiency causes problems with memory and other cognitive functions, thiamine and analogs like sulbutiamine have been studied in clinical trials in the 1980s and 1990s for age-associated cognitive decline. These multiple properties make thiamine a reliable vitamin precursor as well as a safe and effective cognition enhancer.
Do not consume without knowing an accurate dosage. A milligram scale is highly recommended.
