Is a peptide best known for its nootropic, neuroprotective, and neurogenic/neurorestorative properties. It is a synthetic peptide, analog of a fragment of the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH). ACTH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland in the brain in response to stress and regulates cortisol secretion.
In the U.S. and around the world, Semax is the basis for a number of drugs that are used in clinical practice for the treatment of CNS diseases (ischemic brain stroke, dys-circulatory encephalopathy, optic nerve atrophy, etc.) and to enhance adaptability under extreme conditions in healthy people. Amongst other clinical effects, Semax is an analgesic (pain medication) and helps weaning off opioids.
Some of the benefits of Semax may include:
- reduces the number of cells damaged by oxidative stresshelps to adapt to hypoxia (low oxygen conditionsIncreased attention and short-term memory
- Improved Non-proliferative Diabetic Neuropathy
- Can help during recovery from Stroke/Hypoxia
- Improved Glaucoma Optic Neuropathy
- May act as an Analgesic (pain reliever) by inhibiting Enkephalin breakdown
- Can be helpful in the treatment of ADHD
- Nootropic (cognitive-enhancing) effects
- Neuroprotection: may help protect the brain from various types of stress and damage
HOW DOES SEMAX WORK?
BDNF are active neurotrophins, which are chemicals that help to stimulate and control neurogenesis, the birth of new neurons in the brain. Semax is known to increase the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels, which essentially means it helps to support the survival of existing neurons and encourages the growth, regeneration, and creation of new neurons and synapses.
BDNF helps to support Semax allowing nerve cells in the brain to compensate for injury and adapt to new situations or changes in the environment and reducing the breakdown of enkephalins. Enkephalins are mainly involved in decreasing pain, reducing the breakdown of inflammation, preventing cancer cell growth, and increasing immune cell activity. They also play a role in memory, learning, emotional behavior, and pain. Balanced enkephalins levels are needed to maintain normal brain function. These early findings have led some researchers to suggest that Semax may have some potential as a pain reliever, although much more research would be needed to confirm these preliminary cell-based findings.
Based on what Semax can do for brain function and health, its capabilities as a treatment option are continually being developed.
Traditionally prescribed for the treatment of anxiety and depression.
- Positively influences memory and learning process
- Enhance GABA
- Opioid and alcohol withdrawal
Delta Sleep Inducing Peptide (DSIP) in low doses has been known to promote sleep. It s a well known neuromodulator and natural somnogenic nonapeptide with many other physiologic functions. Typically found in the brain, it easily passes the blood brain barrier. It is mainly prescribed for the treatment of pain condition, alcohol and opioid withdrawal, CRH and stress related symptoms, and low testosterone (via stimulation of LH).
Pentosan Polysulfate (PPS) is an FDA-approved oral medication with anti-inflammatory properties and cartilage repair action. It is therefore used successfully in pain from osteoarthritis.
Cerebrolysin is a nootropic drug that has a neurotrophic action similar to nerve growth factors, which cause peripheral and central neuronal stimulation. It improves efficacy within the brain’s aerobic metabolic processes and improves intracellular peptide synthesis. It is used in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and the onset of dementia.
Thymosin Beta 4 is a restorative/regenerative peptide for neurological injury and neurodegenerative diseases.
NAD+ Using cognitive enhancement medications without a prescription in the United States is illegal, and the illegal use of certain compounds carries health risks. Furthermore, there a number of dubious online “sources” for certain cognitive enhancing substances and “nootropics” that purport to sell molecularly similar variants of the medical / prescription grade compound. The origin of these “sources” is often unknown or overseas, and the chemical composition & purity is speculative at best. However, the proper medically supervised administration of cognitive enhancing compounds is accepted in the medical community and is considered an effective medical treatment for cognitive decline and specific cognitive deficiencies. It is safe if administered through a qualified physician who has your health, general well-being and safety in mind. Our physicians specialize in this field, and are well-respected in the medical community.
Insulin-like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) Used in diabetic neuropathy and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
As a nerve growth factor, IGF-1 promotes nerve lengthening and branching.
As a muscle growth factor, IGF-1 promotes muscle cell differentiation, proliferation, and growth. It may also activate muscle stem cells during the regenerative process
As a blood vessel growth factor, IGF-1 promotes blood vessel formation in muscle regeneration.
Synapsin ™ Nasal Spray
Power blend of ginsenoside Rg3 and nicotinamide ribosome along with components to aid in solubilization and dispersion. Invented by renowned Jim LaVAlle, RPh, CCN, ND.
Synopsis is designed to be used in dietary supplement formulations for the support of neurological health and cognitive health. It is commonly used in combination with methylcobalamin in formulations to support neuronal function and cognition.
Epithalon Also known as Etalon or Epithalone is known to regulate metabolism in the epiphysis, increasing the sensitivity of hypothalamus to its natural hormonal influences, normalize the function of the anterior pituitary, regulate the levels of gonadotropins and melatonin in the body.
Dihexa, also known as N-hexanoic-Tyr-lle-(6) aminohexanoic amide, is an oligopeptide drug derived from angiotensin IV that binds with high affinity to hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) and potentiates its activity at its receptor, c-Met.
It has been found to potently improve cognitive function, help manage depression, enhance creative thinking and social interaction, improve heart health, brain focus and assists in the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease and Parkinson’s Disease.
