Thiamega provides a high dosage of vitamin B1 (thiamine) in four different forms, each possessing unique properties. Benfotiamine, sulbutiamine and TTFD may increase brain levels of thiamine, support cognition and central nervous system function. Each capsule delivers a total of 400mg of thiamine.
Three of these forms are synthetic derivatives originally developed in Japan and are known to possess much greater bio-availability compared with ordinary thiamine salts.
Benfotiamine is an S-acyl derivative of thiamine known for its ability to improve blood sugar management and support peripheral nerve function. Sulbutiamine contains two molecules of thiamine bound together by a disulfide bond. Thiamine Tetrahydrofurfuryl Disulfide (TTFD) contains one thiamine molecule bound with a sulfur-mercaptan group, which provides it with unique properties.
The molecular structure of these three thiamine derivatives allows them to pass through intestinal and cellular membranes without the requirement for a transport system. Once inside the cell, they deliver thiamine which can be activated and used as a cofactor in important biochemical processes.
Frequently Asked Questions
Thiamega is intended for people who have experience with taking thiamine in doses of 400mg or above, or who consume different thiamine derivatives separately. For people who have never taken thiamine before, this product is NOT advised. It is best to start with Thiamax or alternatively one of our B complexes (ThiActive B or Thiavite).
Start at one capsule per day. To reach high dosages, up to five capsules can be taken per day.
Thiamega is best taken in the morning time or early afternoon. If taken in the evening, it may disrupt sleep. It should be taken at least 1 hour before, or two hours after consuming coffee and/or green and black tea.
It is advised to take this product with a meal, but it can also be taken away from food.
Initially some people can experience a “paradoxical reaction” with thiamine supplementation. This might include a temporary period of increased fatigue, brain-fog, and poor concentration. This reaction usually subsides within a few weeks. For people experiencing these symptoms, it is advised to use a product with a lower dosage of thiamine, such as Thiamax.
It is advised not to exceed five capsules per day.
It is advised to take a full spectrum B complex, such as ThiActive B or Thiavite, alongside this product. Furthermore, magnesium and other mineral co-factors are advised when supplementing with high doses of thiamine, each of which is included in our mineral formula ThiAssist.
