Sulbutiamine was first reported in 1973. Although discovered in Japan, it is synthesized by Servier, a French pharmaceutical company. Also marketed and sold as Arcalion. Sulbutiamine, also known as Arcalion, is a water soluble derivative of vitamin b1 (thiamine). This substance crosses the blood-brain barrier and increases levels of thiamine and other brain chemicals responsible for physical activity, attention and wakefulness. It also acts as a regulator of the synaptic transmissions for many neural systems within the brain. Sulbutiamine has shown a wide range of benefits which effect both the mind and the body. This includes improved memory, cognition, concentration and focus, and increases mental energy. Additionally, it has been shown to lessen symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and overcome anxiety disorders. In fact, the supplement has been reported to boost the mood of some users. This effect is similar to very strong coffee, but without the associated agitation. It also may improve stamina and the ability to recover faster from illness and infection.

Scientific Studies: In an interesting 2010 Russian study, Sulbutiamine was examined in a large sample of in-competition athletic urinary drug tests. The idea was to determine if this supplement was used and relevant in sports and athletic competition. The conclusion reached was that there were a significant number of samples to indicate that the Sulbutiamine was intentionally administered and that it has ergogenic and mild stimulating properties.
