Peptide Therapy for Brain and Cognitive Function: Semax

WHAT IS SEMAX?

Semax is a peptide best known for its nootropic, neuroprotective, and neurogenic/neurorestorative properties. It was developed based on the molecular structure of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH).

Semax increases brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels. BDNF is among the most active neurotrophins, which are chemicals that help to stimulate and control neurogenesis, the birth of new neurons in the brain.

BDNF has been shown to play a role in neuroplasticity, which allows nerve cells in the brain to compensate for injury and adapt to new situations or changes in the environment. Basically, BDNF helps to support the survival of existing neurons and encourages the growth, regeneration, and creation of new neurons and synapses.

Semax also helps reduce the breakdown of enkephalins. Enkephalins are mainly involved in decreasing pain, reducing 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.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SEMAX?

Some of the benefits of Semax may include:

  • Increased attention and short-term memory
  • Improved Non-proliferative Diabetic Neuropathy
  • Can help during recovery from Stroke/HypoxiaImproved 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
