CEREBROLYSIN

42.00 $69.00 $

Cerebrolysin ® is a neurometabolic stimulator based on neuropeptides (20%) and amino acids (80%) isolated from pig brain proteins. Unlike the majority of peptide drugs, Cerebrolysin has all the amino acids which compose the central nervous system; this can explain many additional positive properties of Cerebrolysin.  It is usually named as the most effective nootropic to date.

PHENIBUT ®

9.00 $10.50 $

Phenibut® is a derivative of the naturally occurring inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, which can cross the blood-brain barrier much better than the original compound. Unlike usual tranqualizers, Phenibut® has both psychostimulating and anxiety reducing effects.

It has been more than 40 years since Cornelia E. Giurgea - a Romanian chemist - synthesized a compound that was "capable of selectively influencing integrative mechanisms of the brain”. This chemical compound was Piracetam, which later appeared on the market under the brand name Nootropil®, simultaneously giving birth to a whole range of pharmaceuticals which we now call nootropics.

MILDRONATE [Meldonium]

8.00 $31.00 $

Mildronate® is 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 sexual function.

A perfect alternative for the discontinued Ladasten (Bromantane)

Picamilon® 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 energy metabolism in the brain because it stimulates consumption of oxygen and glucose by neuronal tissue.

MEXIDOL ®

12.00 $30.00 $

Mexidol® is a unique development of the Russian pharmaceutical industry. Due to the universal mechanism of action and a wide range of pharmacological effects, Mexidol® is effective in the treatment of acute and chronic diseases caused by ischemia and hypoxia of various origins. Nowadays the drug is widely used in neurology, therapy, cardiology, psychiatry and narcology. Mexidol® is produced at leading pharmaceutical manufacturing sites in the Russian Federation, which operate in accordance with GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) production and quality control standards.    

Grandaxin® [Tofisopam] is a non-sedating anxiolytic drug with a unique pharmacological action different from typical benzodizepines. Tofisopam was first synthesized in 1966 in Hungary, and has been successfully used for anxiety management since 1970s.

ADAPTOL ® [Mebicar]

18.00 $46.00 $

Mebicar (or tetramethylglycoluril) is an anxiolytic medication that works on the serotonergic system: taken in small doses it increases the effect of tryptophan, which is a precursor to serotonin. Mebicar purportedly has anti-anxiety properties. It is also used to aid smoking cessation and in the treatment of ADHD symptoms. Mebicar decreases the brain noradrenaline level, exerts no effect on the dopaminergic systems, increases the brain serotonin level, and does not elicit cholinolytic action.

Demoxytocin (desamino oxytocin) is a synthetic analogue 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.

TABEX ® [Cytisine]

15.00 $34.00 $

Tabex® is a 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.

GLYCINE FORTE

3.00 $14.00 $

Glycine is a nootropic medication which improves metabolic function in the brain. Due to its safety, it is one of the most popular and commonly sold nootropic supplements in territories and countries of the former soviet union. This product includes B vitamins which increase its nootropic effect.

Hypoxen [Hypoxenum]

30.00 $34.50 $

Hypoxen is an adaptogen developed in 1976 by a group of scientists in the Institute of Macromolecular Compounds of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, Leningrad. The active compound of Hypoxen is Sodium salt of (poly-(2,5-dihydroxy-phenylene))-4-thiosulfonic acid. Hypoxenum and coenzyme Q10 have a similar structure.

Naltrexone

4.50 $35.00 $

Naltrexone is an opioid antagonist and primarily used to manage alcohol or opioid dependence. It reduces the effect of opioid analgesics (analgesic, antidiarrheal, antitussive); eliminates the side effects of opioids (including endogenous ones), with the exception of the symptoms caused by the histamine response. In alcoholism, it binds to opioid receptors and blocks the effects of endorphins. A low dose of naltrexone (up to 4.5 mg per day taken orally) is recommended by some doctors for use in autoimmune diseases such as Crohn's disease and multiple sclerosis.

RIBOXIN

7.00 $

Riboxin® (Inosine) is a metabolic agent, a precursor of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Inosine is an important nucleoside that is essential for proper translation of the genetic code in wobble base pairs. It provides antihypoxic, metabolic and antiarrhythmic effect. It increases the energy balance of the myocardium, improves the coronary blood flow and prevents consequences of intraoperative renal ischemia. The drug participates in the glucose metabolism and promotes metabolism activation under hypoxia and in the absence of ATP.

Biotredin is a nootropic medication which 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:В The amino acid glycine, Acetaldehyde.The resulting substance promotes active stimulation of inhibitory processes, oxidation-reduction, and supports respiratory function, and synthesis of adenosine triphosphate in the cells.

Heptor [S-Adenosyl methionine]

40.00 $60.00 $

Heptor is a drug based on ademetionine (S-Adenosyl methionine), which is currently considered one of the most powerful hepatoprotectors. Ademetionine takes part in transmethylation and is a biosynthetic precursor of cysteine, taurine and glutathione. Apart from its hepatoprotective properties, ademetionine also has anti-inflammatory, painkiller and antidepressant effects. Heptor is a choleretic and cholekinetic drug.

METADOXIL

20.00 $60.00 $

Metadoxil is a drug used for the treatment of alcohol intoxication. Recent clinical studies also suggest that it can be used as a non-stimulant ADHD medication. Metadoxil is a salt of pyridoxine (vitamin B6 form) and pyrrolidone carboxylate. The drug does promote the metabolic degradation of ethanol and restore the functional state of the liver, thus decreasing the toxic effect of alcohol on the brain and body.

Limontar is a combination drug which stabilizes tissue metabolism. It has antihypoxic and antioxidant properties, improves appetite and reduces the toxic effect of ethanol. It enhances the oxidation-reduction processes and the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), and thus it activates functions of organs and tissues and improves mental and physical performance.

Glutargin Alkoclean is a drug based on arginine and glutamic acid that is intended to increase metabolism. It is used for prevention and treatment of alcohol intoxication, lowering hepatotoxic effect of alcohol and as part of complex therapy of disorders caused by acute alcohol intoxication.

Deltaran® is a powerful neuroprotector that has a powerful antioxidant, stress protective and antidepressant effect. It protects neurons from the destruction by toxic, infectious and other damaging agents, and also prevents the death of nerve cells because of stress. The use of Deltaran® makes it possible to compensate for the deficiency of endogenous neuroprotectors in the body, which ensures unimpaired functioning of the central nervous system in extreme situations.

Tiolepta is an endogenous antioxidant that binds free radicals and stabilizes lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It has hepatoprotective, lipid-lowering, hypocholesterolemic and hypoglycemic properties. Thioctic acid (alpha-lipoic acid), its main component, is an antioxidant that is widely used as a dietary supplement and as a pharmaceutical drug. Alpha-lipoic acid is most commonly used to treat diabetes and nerve-related symptoms of diabetes including burning, pain and numbness in the legs and arms.
