If you are an avid pro tennis enthusiast, then the name Maria Sharapova is probably a household name. Recently, she came under scrutiny for her use of Mildronate as a performance enhancing agent. While WADA argues about whether or not there is actually any benefit to the use of this drug in the athletic world, I had to take a chance and try this stuff out. I’ve always been a fan of anything that can enhance performance AND is also very benign in terms of side-effects, and in this regard, Meldonium (the formal name of this product) shines in every regard. Whether you are an athlete or an anti-aging enthusiast, this unique drug will surprise you with its effect on stamina, endurance as well as overall feelings of well-being.
I ordered a box of Mildronate from cosmicnootropic.com, along with my order of Cerebrolysin and Cortexin. I had been hearing some hype surrounding this product, and had to know first-hand what benefits came from it. According to Cosmic’s site:
Back in 1975, the creator of the drug, professor Kalvins, was studying all body chemicals that can be deplenished during endurance trainings. He found that one particular chemical – Gamma Butyrobetaine – is being deplenished under physical workloads. He changed this molecule by replacing one atom of Silicon with that of Nitrogen so that the new molecule would not decompose and could act as a transmitter from CNS to peripheral cells. Mildronate was approved for use to general public in 1984. It is a metabolic enhancer that can normalise cellular energy metabolism. As such, it is usually used to treat angina, myocardial failure and reduce alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Off – label use of Meldonuim in otherwise healthy individuals includes increasing exercise tolerance, learning, memory and even sexual function.
It sounds like many of the Russian nootropic agents I’ve come across. A subtle performance enhancer that you only notice when you’re really under stress, and one that comes with a whole list of positive benefits, while seeming vague in its main mechanism of action. But I was blown away after even my first dose of two capsules. After about thirty minutes I could feel something shift in me, energetically speaking. I’m pretty stressed-out these days, and I’m pretty sensitive to the effects of various nootropics and performance enhancers, so I wasn’t surprised that I noticed a benefit. But I was definitely surprised by how noticeable it was. Some of the other more obscure Russian products I’ve tried thus far either took really high dosages to notice an effect, or they were flat-out placebo-like in my response to them.
Mildronate has been a godsend to me. It has dramatically increased my workout performance, and it also has a mood-boosting and cognitive-enhancing aspect to it. It doesn’t stimulate me per se, but it definitely relieves the malaise and “blah” feeling I would have every mid-afternoon of a stressful day. My thinking is clearer, my energy is up, and my fatigue is down in a way that is leaving me hoping I could have a never-ending supply of this stuff.
And what’s more, its anti-ischemic effects are keeping my heart and cardio-vascular system in check. It helps blood flow and circulation in a way that is unique. It isn’t a vasodilator like L-Arginine or Sildenafil (a pde inhibitor I use regularly for blood pressure, vascularization, and well… you know… Instead it just seems to make everything flow better in my body without any perceivable peripheral effects.
