Thiamax contains thiamine tetrahydrofurfuryl disulfide, a derivative of thiamine (vitamin B1) with high bioavailability. This form has been shown to cross the blood-brain-barrier and can bypass normal routes of thiamine absorption, with a higher rate of uptake both in the gut and at the cellular level. Thiamax also includes a small amount of magnesium (as magnesium taurate), which plays an important role in supporting how cells can use thiamine.
Benefits of Thiamine:
- CONTROL SUGAR LIKE A BOSS: Ingestion of any type of carbohydrate, processed in the body mainly to glucose, automatically increases the need for dietary B1 (Lonsdale et al., 2006). In fact, Thiamine is so powerful at regulating blood sugar levels, that it has been used in MANY clinical trials to support blood sugar control, improve insulin sensitivity and slow diabetes (Pácal et al., 2014).
- DETOXIFIES THE HEAVY METAL LEAD: Well, who doesn’t have excess Lead in the body nowadays? In fact, Thiamine has been shown to enhances the elimination of lead from the body and that this feature may be beneficial in chelation therapy (Lonsdale, 2012).

In fact, Thiamine displays rather impressive nootropic qualities, via increasing Dopamine (The motivating/alertness promoting) neurotransmitter in the brain (Osiezagha et al., 2013). Beyond acting through Dopamine signalling, Thiamine in high enough doses can increase Acetylcholine levels, which makes you sharp and focused (Meador et al., 1993).
