Sulbutiamine Powder

Many people are constantly tired from always being on the go. This can also lead to a lack of focus and even endurance. If you are having any of these issues, feelings of anxiety, or even something as simple as extra stress, then it only makes sense to seek out natural solutions.

What is it?

Sulbutiamine is a synthetic version of thiamine which was discovered in Japan by researchers trying to develop a way people could better absorb thiamine. This supplement is lipid soluble, but will still mix in water. Sulbutiamine has several benefits, ranging from an improvement of strength to relaxation and even helping users to convert food into energy more efficiently.

The supplement works by crossing the blood-brain barrier fairly efficiently and raising the levels of thiamine and thiamine phosphate esters in the brain [1]. It is also known as a brain supplement, which is meant to promote increased brain energy and cognitive function. There is also some evidence to suggest that sulbutiamine may be helpful with neurotransmission [2].

Side Effects and Benefits

This nutritional supplement, which also goes by the name of Arcalion, is widely used by athletes interested in improving not only strength but also recovery time. In addition to these advantageous sulbutiamine side effects, this substance is also known to help improve one's stamina and endurance [2].

Other reported sulbutiamine benefits include those related to a generally improved mood and enhanced feeling of well-being. There is also an increase in energy and mental alertness [2].

Sulbutiamine Dosage

Taken daily, the recommended sulbutiamine dosage is 12.5 mg/kg [3]. Many users report taking anywhere between 100 and 1200 mg per day, usually in evenly divided doses two or even three times a day. It may be taken with or without food, although taking sulbutiamine with a meal is recommended, since this supplement is fat soluble.
