Magne B6 is a drug intended to restore the amount of magnesium in the body. Magnesium is the eleventh most abundant element by mass in the human body and is essential to all cells and some 300 enzymes. Magnesium ions interact with polyphosphate compounds such as ATP, DNA, and RNA. Hundreds of enzymes require magnesium ions to function. It is engaged in transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contraction. Normal levels of magnesium are important for the maintenance of heart and nervous system function.

The body consumes magnesium with food. Its deficiency may occur as a result of eating disorders (including reduction diets) and an increased need for magnesium in case of intense physical or mental activity, stress, pregnancy or the use of diuretics. Losses of magnesium from the kidneys also become a common cause of magnesium deficit.

Pyridoxine (vitamin B6), one of the drug’s main ingredients, participates in various metabolic processes, and in regulating metabolism of the nervous system, in particular. It improves magnesium absorption from the digestive system into the body’s cells.

The normal adult value for magnesium is 1.5-2.5 mEq/L. Lesser amounts are the evidence of magnesium deficiency, also known as hypomagnesemia. It may cause fatigue or muscle weakness, mental numbness and lack of emotion. Scientists have suggested that deficiency may also cause anxiety and raise blood pressure.

Indications

You can buy Magne B6 in cases of magnesium deficiency (might be in combination with other deficiencies) with increased irritability, sleep disorders, stomach cramps, palpitations, fatigue, pain and muscle cramps or tingling sensation.

Drug Interaction

Co-administration with drugs containing phosphates and calcium salts reduces magnesium absorption from the digestive system.

Magne B6 reduces absorption of tetracycline and iron.

Pyridoxine inhibits the activity of levodopa.

Side Effects

Abdominal pains, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, constipation or allergic response.

Overdose

PHENIBUT ®

$ 10.00$ 11.00

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.

The main substance of Pantogam Active® is a hopantenic acid developed in Japan in 1950. The hopantenic acid combines GABA and vitamin B5 that allows GABA to reach neurons of the central nervous system. GABA is the chief inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system. It plays the principal role in reducing neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system. Pantogam Active stabilizes neurotransmitters, i.e. makes them more resistant to temporary or permanent negative effects.

ADAPTOL ® [Mebicar]

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.
