Synthesised first by Japanese researchers, Sulbutiamine is a modified thiamine (vitamin B1), that can easily cross blood-brain barrier. In the brain it eventually produces both GABA and acetylcholine, thus affecting adaptability, mood and focus. 

Official indications for Sulbutiamine use include:

  • Symptomatic treatment of asthenic disorders
  • Hypo - and - avitaminoses
  • Lingering illnesses
  • After surgical interventions

One pack of Enerion® contains 20 or 60 pills, each containing 200 Mg of the active ingredient, which is sufficient for an average of 10 days of supplementation.
