Who Needs Zobria®?
The following conditions have been shown to cause LowB1; symptoms of LowB1 may be helped by Zobria®:
About one-half of all diabetics will develop numbness, tingling, burning, or pain in their feet and legs. The breakdown in the functioning of these nerves may be due to many factors, one of which is LowB1.
A group of respected research scientists recently published a study that showed diabetics have 75% less circulating vitamin B1 in their blood plasma than non-diabetics. They showed that this was due to excessive urination of thiamine by diabetics as compared to non-diabetics.
Studies have shown that reversing LowB1 in diabetics with the key ingredients in Zobria® generally improves the functioning of the nerves in the feet and legs within a month.*
Diabetics on metformin are at even greater risk of vitamin B1 deficiency because metformin blocks the absorption of vitamin B1 from the intestines.
A history of alcohol abuse
Excessive and chronic alcohol consumption has been shown to have a toxic effect on the intestines, impairing the absorption of vitamin B1. As such, many people who have abused alcohol develop LowB1. This can cause numbness, tingling, burning, or pain in their feet and legs. It can also cause impaired functioning of the brain. The use of a key ingredient in Zobria® has been shown to improve numbness, tingling, burning, and pain in the feet and legs. It has also been shown to improve brain function in people who have abused alcohol excessively over long periods of time.*
Use of certain medications
Many medications can cause LowB1, including:
- Metformin—the most commonly prescribed medication for the treatment of diabetes—inhibits the absorption of vitamin B1 from the intestines.
- Diuretics, also known as water pills, are used in the treatment of high blood pressure and swelling in the legs. Diuretics can cause excessive urination of vitamin B1—causing LowB1.
- Drugs used in the treatment of cancer such as fluorouracil, paclitaxel, and nivolumab.
- PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU HAVE CANCER YOU SHOULD ALWAYS CONSULT THE PHYSICIAN MANAGING YOUR TREATMENT BEFORE TAKING ANY DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS OR NUTRIENTS—INCLUDING ZOBRIA®.
LowB1 is common in people older than 65 years of age and it likely causes the nerves in the feet and legs to function less successfully causing numbness, tingling, burning, or shooting pains. One study found that these symptoms affect over 25% of people aged 65-75, and over 50% of people 85 years of age or older.
Obesity and/or gastric bypass surgery
A recent study found 16% of people considered obese have LowB1 with over one half of them suffering from numbness, tingling, burning, or pain in the feet and legs.
LowB1 also affects about 1 in 5 people after gastric bypass surgery. It has been found that many people who have undergone surgery for weight loss are unable to properly absorb vitamin B1 from the intestines. This often causes LowB1.
