Developed in the Soviet Union for the needs of the military, Bemitil (also known as Metaprot and AntiHot) has a long history of usage in clinical practice and in sport. It was developed in the 1970s and was successfully used during the Afghanistan war, the Chernobyl catastrophe, and the Olympic Games in Moscow.
The main purpose of Bemitil is to increase the physical and mental performance in people exposed to stressful conditions and accelerating the recovery process after physical exertion. That makes it useful for athletes, especially for bodybuilders and runners. What is important is that even healthy individuals can feel the benefits of the Bemitil.
But sport is not its only off-label usage. Bemitil works synergistically with other nootropics and can potentiate their effect, which makes this drug a possible part of a nootropic stack. According to clinical studies, the combination of Metaprot with the standard nootropic therapy is significantly more effective in the treatment of chronic fatigue, than standard therapy alone.
Bemitil has quite a wide field of application in clinical practice, too. In Russian medicine, this drug is used in the complex treatment of:
- Asthenic conditions (chronic fatigue);
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Meningitis, encephalitis;
- Cerebrovascular and cognitive disorders.
Mechanism of action
The chemical structure of Bemitil is similar to that of nucleobases adenine and guanine, which can explain its pharmacological effects.
Bemitil increases the expression of RNA and proteins in the skeletal muscle, brain cells, liver, and kidneys. It also stimulates ATP formation and gluconeogenesis. Gluconeogenesis is the process of the formation of glucose from non-carbohydrate substrates, such as lactate, fats, and glucogenic amino acids, which plays an important role in the energy supply during exercise. Fasting, physical exercises, and a low-carb diet rich in proteins and fats have also been shown to stimulate gluconeogenesis.

Cereton® is a very efficient cholinergic supplement in terms of increasing brain concentration of choline. In the brain, choline and its metabolites are needed for the process of communication between neurons. Increasing phosphatidylcholine and acetylcholine as a result of taking Cereton (Alpha-GPC) might improve certain cognitive functions, including memory, retention, focus, and neuroplasticity.

Cavinton® (Vinpocetine or ethyl apovincaminate) improves blood flow to the brain and is used to treat cerebrovascular disorders such as strokes and atherosclerosis. The vasodilatory action of Vinpocetine is mediated by a smooth muscle relaxation and a decrease of blood viscosity. According to clinical trials and anecdotal experiences, the drug can also be used to relieve tinnitus. In the US Cavinton (Vinpocetine) is often included in supplement stacks.
