Despite CosmicNootropic is dedicated to nootropics and brain function enhancement, our team can't ignore the general human enhancement in all the other ways. A good example is quitting addictions, which are not appropriate for you. This makes you stronger, sets you free, gives you more time to do the things you really want to do. Breaking up with addictions is always hard work, which takes a lot of energy and requires a high-level discipline. It's not just about physiology, it's also about psychology (which are for sure related to each other): we feel satisfied when doing familiar things in a regular way, and this is how our brain works. Nowadays, especially if living in big cities, we have much more stress factors, and this makes quitting addictions even harder. Fortunately, you have CosmicNootropic! Quitting addictions can be much easier with us. Let's see, what we have to help you with this. Just one thing: you need to understand clearly if you really want to stop being addicted!
Fight Nicotine Addiction
Tabex is an innovative mean of quitting smoking, as its active component, Cytisine, interacts with the same receptors as Nicotine does. It alleviates abstinence syndromes (bad mood, irritability, headache, etc) and can tremendously increase the likelihood of staying nicotine-free for the first days of abstinence.
It is a herbal drug containing an alkaloid isolated from the plant Cytisus laburnum (better known as broom). Its mechanism of action is similar to one of nicotine, so if using it while smoking one can feel the symptoms of nicotine overdose (actually getting cytisine instead). This causes a stop getting pleasure from smoking without any withdrawal effects.
In 1978, the USSR Ministry of Healthcare approved Mebicar for use by the general public as an anxiolytic and as a “daily” tranquilizer. Mebicar belongs to a group of non-benzodizepam tranquilizers; from the chemical perspective, it is a derivative of carbamide, an endogenous metabolite, which explains why the compound is 150 times less toxic than Diazepam. Mebicar works on the serotonergic system: taken in small doses it increases the effect of tryptophan, which is a precursor to serotonin. It is used for the treatment of nicotine withdrawal.
Fight Alcohol Addiction
The preparation helps fight alcohol intoxication. By increasing the production of succinic acid, it stimulates alcohol processing in the liver monooxygenase system and ethanol detoxication. Glutamic acid lowers the depressant effect of alcohol on the CNS. In general, the preparation has cytoprotective, antihypoxic, membrane stabilizing, antioxidant, detoxication and antiradical effects.
A nootropic medication that improves metabolism and boosts cellular energy. The drug is comprised of L-threonine and pyridoxine hydrochloride (vitamin B6). Together, threonine and vitamin B6 interact to form the amino acid glycine and cetaldehyde. The resulting substance promotes active stimulation of inhibitory processes, oxidation-reduction, and supports respiratory function, and synthesis of adenosine triphosphate in the cells. Biotredin can increase productivity and alleviate stress, but one of the primary indications is the treatment of various stages of alcoholism. It also can help with a withdrawal syndrome. Preparation can be effectively combined with Glycine.
It is a synthetic analog of oxytocin peptide. It is more potent compared to oxytocin, has a longer half-life and can be used sublingually. All these factors make this product a perfect candidate for use instead of oxytocin. Oxytocin is a subject of a lot of neurological research. It was shown to improve trust between people and make them more generous. It also plays a crucial role in bonding and can, therefore, help people come to agreement easier. Oxytocin can also be used to decrease cravings to fats, sweets, alcohol, and nicotine. It creates a feeling of satiety in people.
Hypoxen has antihypoxic and antioxidant effects and can be used by healthy people with reduced performance in extreme situations and adverse weather conditions, e.g. the Far North, highlands, etc. Hypoxenum is used by athletes to improve physical performance, yet it is not on the WADA Prohibited List. Apart from that, the drug was also shown to be effective for patients suffering from alcohol abuse problems as it can decrease cravings, improve mood, lower anxiety, and asthenia.
Phenibut is mainly famous for its nootropic effect near to tranquilizing (anxiolytic), anticonvulsant, hypnotic, muscle relaxant and sedative effects. It is used in cases of asthenic and anxiety-neurotic conditions, insomnia, logoneurosis, nervous tics, as well as a sedative before surgery. It also can help to deal with alcohol withdrawal. But it should be used in a very proper way! Read the post in our blog about using Phenibut in Russia.
This compound is based on a synthetic combination of GABA and niacin, with the former being responsible for reducing neuronal excitability and the latter acting as a strong vasodilator.
Its effects are similar to those of Phenibut as both drugs reduce anxiety and improve mood. However, unlike Phenibut, Picamilon has a much stronger impact on the energy metabolism in the brain because it stimulates the consumption of oxygen and glucose by the neuronal tissue.
The preparation can be prescribed to alleviate symptoms of alcohol withdrawal at doses of 100-150 mg per day for one week.
