Product Name: semax
Other name: H-Met-Glu-His-Phe-Pro-Gly-Pro-OH
CAS No.: 80714-61-0
Semax is a peptide nootropic drug based on a fragment of adrenocorticotropic hormone, used in nasal spray form. It was developed in the Soviet Union in the 1980s.
Semax is used in the treatment of various neurological conditions such as stroke. Besides that, it can be used by healthy individuals to improve memory and attention and is widely used recreationally for its anxiolytic and antidepressant effects.
One of the main advantages of Semax is its safety. The drug is well-tolerated and does not cause serious side effects even if taken in excessive dosages.
Semax does have a fast onset of action and is able to cross the blood-brain barrier in four minutes after intranasal administration.
According to various researches and randomized controlled studies involving EEG, Semax does improve adaptation processes in the brain and increase its resistance to stressful conditions, hypoxia, and ischemia.
Semax is what's called a synthetic heptapeptide, meaning that it's a chain of 7 amino aci-ds as a single molecule. Interestingly enough, the semax molecule mirrors a fragment of adrenocorticotropic hormone, which is released in the pituitary gland of humans in response to environmental stress.
It was originally developed in Moscow, Russia as a treatment mostly for neurological-related disorders, such as poor memory, depression, ADHD, and post-stroke treatment.
Additionally, Semax can be used as an immune-system booster or as a treatment for peptic ulcers, strangely enough.
Semax can also be used off-label as a nootropic, with many properties that make it quite suitable for regular use.
