What is Sulbutiamine?

Sulbutiamine is a synthetic form of thiamine, also known as vitamin B1. This supplement is designed to improve energy transmissions within the nervous system, as well as proper energy metabolism. It has also shown to improve conditions such as chronic fatigue and insomnia.

The primary purpose of designing the Sulbutiamine supplement was to reverse the effects of vitamin B1 deficiency. For your information, vitamin B1 deficiency is associated with memory lapses, decreased attention span, mood swings, acute depression and reduced alertness.

The benefits of the supplement in the above conditions speak for themselves, however, people who aren’t deficient in vitamin B1 can still benefit from its profound effects on mood stabilization, cognition, and increased energy.

Sulbutiamine Benefits

1. Improved memory ~ Many Sulbutiamine reviews and research reports have associated the drug with improved memory through enhancement of glutaminergic and cholinergic transmission. For this reason, it has been used widely for treatment of initial stages of Alzheimer’s disease. It has also shown impressive results in schizophrenia patients by improving their memory.

2. Increased alertness and energy levels ~ It is known for boosting energy metabolism, which stimulates the ability of users to concentrate on their specific tasks. This enables them to perceive and react productively to events happening around them. Sulbutiamine has now earned a space on the front shelf as an excellent study aid due to this property.

3. Effects on erectile dysfunction ~ A study carried out on 20 patients suffering from erectile dysfunction showed significant improvement in 16 patients –with 10 of them experiencing full recovery in a period of 5 days.

4. Reduced anxiety and improved mood ~ individuals with anxiety-induced mood swings have reported great improvement after a couple of doses. This is due to the fact that Sulbutiamine stimulates levels of dopamine in the brain with the end result of increased focus, reduced anxiety, and nervousness –especially in social situations.

Sulbutiamine Dosage

There is no absolute definition of how much of the Sulbutiamine one should take. The dosage will, however depend on a number of factors such as metabolism and natural biochemistry, your overall health status, and your level of tolerance.

Most reviews and prescriptions recommend an average dosage of between 400-1000mg per day. Users are advised not exceed 1000mg to avoid cases of unwanted side effects. As with most nootropics, it’s always a good practice to start with a lower dosage and work your way up until you find a level that gives you the best results.

Whether you’re taking Sulbutiamine as a powder or pill, it’s important to note that it is fat soluble, rather than water soluble. So these means that if you have to take it with a liquid, choose a fat source such as milk or oil-based. Additionally, rather than taking one single dose per day, split the dose into 2-3 equal measures and distribute them evenly throughout the day. This will ensure that you get the most out of your pack.

Side Effects?

There are no side effects when this compound is taken within the recommended daily dosage. However, there have been a few reports of increased irritability and anxiety when significantly higher than recommended doses are used.

Nausea has also been reported in some users, though very minimal. Remember that the dosage recommendation is only applicable when using Sulbutiamine on its own, so do some research and consultations if you plan on stacking it with other supplements.


As demonstrated in the above benefits, Sulbutiamine is a powerful and proactive supplement that has recently increased in popularity and usage. With so many demonstrated benefits such as improved memory, focus, concentration, energy levels and mood; many users and researchers are widely adopting it for numerous therapy, medication and rehabilitation procedures.
