Buy Cortexin® Online!
Cortexin is a complex of low molecular weight neuropeptides, amino acids and vitamins derived from the cerebral cortex of cattle. Cortexin is similar to Cerebrolysin, but it has a significantly larger amount of peptide fractions and fewer amino acids.

What is Cortexin?
Cortexin is a mixture of neuropeptide fractions, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, all of which have a mild positive effect on the brain. Similar to Cerebrolysin, Cortexin is based on neuropeptides and amino acids. While the former is produced from pig brains only, the latter is extracted mostly from young horned cattle cerebral cortex by acetic acid extraction. For more information on the comparison of the two compounds please read our blog post.
Cortexin comes in injection form only: 10 mg – for adults, and 5 mg – for children.
What are the Benefits and Effects of Cortexin?
Cortexin has the following effects:
- Nootropic effect: it improves higher cerebral functions, processes of learning and memory, concentration, attention, and tolerance to mental and physical stress;
- Neuroprotective effect: Cortexin protects neurons against different endogenous neurotoxic factors (glutamate, calcium ions, and free radicals) and reduces the toxic impact of psychotropic agents;
- Antioxidant effect: Cortexin inhibits lipid peroxidation, increases survival of neurons under oxidative stress and hypoxia;
- Tissue-specific effect: this drug activates metabolism of neurons of the central and peripheral nervous system as well as reparative processes; also, it promotes stimulation of cortical function and general improvement of the nervous system.
What is Cortexin used for?
Intended uses of Cortexin are defined by its correction of impaired molecular and cellular processes. Cortexin injections are prescribed in the following cases:
- cerebral circulation disorders;
- encephalopathy of various genesis;
- acute and chronic encephalitis and encephalomyelitis;
- traumatic brain injury and its consequences;
- infantile cerebral palsy;
- psychomotor and speech retardation in children;
- cognitive disorders (dysfunction of memory and ideation);
- reduced learning ability.
There are evidences that Cortexin may relieve post-COVID syndrome.

What is Cortexin Dosage, How To Use?
Cortexin has indication-specific dosing. The most common regime is intramuscular injections once daily: 10 mg per day for a period of 10 days for adults. For pediatric dosage please refer to the official instruction. If necessary, the course can be repeated after 3–6 months of discontinuation.
Cortexin shall be taken in the first part of the day, before 3 p.m.
Please use sterile needles, sterilize the administration site, wear sterile plastic gloves, and administer as soon as you open the vial. Before injection dissolve the content of the vial in 1-2 ml of 0.5% procaine (Novocain) solution, water for injection, or 0.9% sodium chloride solution. Relax your muscles and inject slowly.
What are the Side Effects of Cortexin?
No adverse reactions were observed during administration when taken as indicated. Individual hypersensitivity to the product components is possible. Please pay close attention to your body response when you administer the drug for the first time.
