Benfotiamine Overview

Benfotiamine Benfotiamine is a synthetic derivative of thiamine (vitamin B1) with enhanced bioavailability. It is often used as a dietary supplement to support overall health and address conditions related to thiamine deficiency. Unlike thiamine, benfotiamine is lipid-soluble, allowing it to penetrate cell membranes more effectively. This enhanced absorption is believed to contribute to its potential therapeutic benefits in managing diabetic complications, neuropathy, and oxidative stress.

Buprenorphine Overview

  • Buprenorphine extended-release injection is used to treat opioid dependence (addiction to opioid drugs, including heroin and narcotic painkillers) in people who have received buccal or sublingual buprenorphine for at least 7 days. Buprenorphine extended-release injection is in a class of medications called opiate partial agonists. It works to prevent withdrawal symptoms when someone stops taking opioid drugs by producing similar effects to these drugs.
