PANTOCALCIN ® (Hopantenic Acid)
Buy Pantocalcin Online!
Pantocalcin is a nootropic drug with neuroprotective, neurometabolic, and neurotrophic properties. Its active ingredient is the calcium salt of hopantenic acid. Pantocalcin can contribute to the normalization of the brain function at the level of individual neurons and their synaptic connections. It is used to improve memory, perception, attention, thinking, increase learning ability, and activate intellectual functions.

What is Pantocalcin?
Pantocalcin is a nootropic drug that is used in the treatment of various neurotic disorders and psychoemotional stress. The active ingredient Hopantenic acid has neuroprotective, neurometabolic, and neurotrophic properties. Pantocalcin, the calcium salt of hopantenic acid with all the properties of this acid, contributes to the normalization of the brain function at the level of individual neurons and their synaptic connections in various pathologies.
Hopantenic acid (N-pantoyl-GABA) is the higher homolog of D(+)-pantoyl-g- aminobutyric acid (vitamin B5), in which β-Alanine is replaced by γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA). This substance was first synthesized by Japanese researchers in the early 1950s as a part of research on pantothenic acid analogs; then, it was found to be present in the brain of various animal and plant tissues. Subsequent pharmacological study of this compound was conducted in Japan and later in the Soviet Union.

What are the Benefits and Effects of Pantocalcin?
Hopantenic acid is a natural mediator of GABA in the nerve tissue, unlike other GABA-derived nootropic drugs. Hopantenic acid penetrates the blood-brain barrier and has a pronounced effect on the functional activity of the CNS due to the presence of pantoyl radical in its molecule.
Hopantenic acid has many points of application in cellular metabolism and it determines its wide spectrum of pharmacological actions:
- The drug improves glucose utilization (especially in the cerebral cortex, subcortical ganglia, hypothalamus, and cerebellum), nucleic acid metabolism.
- It also activates the synthesis of ATP, protein, and RNA, i.e. stimulates anabolic processes in the brain neurons.
- The indirect neurometabolic effect of the drug is associated with the improvement of microcirculation in the brain due to optimization of the passage of red blood cells through the vessels of the microvasculature and inhibition of platelet aggregation.
- The drug has an antihypoxic effect – it can reduce neuronal oxygen demand under hypoxic conditions;
- It has a neuroprotective effect – it can increase resistance of nerve cells to adverse factors;
- The drug also has an antiepileptic effect;
- It can facilitate information transfer in the brain, enhance wakefulness, amplify the absolute and relative power of the EEG spectrum of the cortex and hippocampus. Improved informational exchange in the brain results in improved memory, perception, attention, thinking, increased learning ability, and activated intellectual functions.
What is Pantocalcin Used For?
In the indications listed below Pantocalcin is usually used as a part of complex therapy and not as the first drug of choice.
The on-label use of Pantocalcin includes the following indications:
- Cognitive impairment in organic brain lesions and neurotic disorders;
- Cerebrovascular insufficiency caused by atherosclerotic changes in cerebral vessels, senile dementia (initial form), and residual organic brain lesions in persons of mature age and in the elderly;
- Cerebral organic insufficiency in patients with schizophrenia;
- Extrapyramidal hyperkinesis in patients with hereditary diseases of the nervous system (Huntington’s chorea, hepatocerebral dystrophy, Parkinson’s disease, etc.);
- The consequences of previous neuroinfectious and traumatic brain injuries;
- Correction of side effects caused by neuroleptics or preventively as a so-called “add-back therapy”;
- Epilepsy with a slowdown of mental;
- Psychoemotional stress, reduced mental and physical performance as well as problems with concentration and memory;
- Urination disorders: enuresis, daytime urinary incontinence, pollakiuria, and urinary urgency;
- Children with mental retardation e.g. delay in mental, speech, and motor development, infantile cerebral palsy, stuttering (mainly clonic form), and epilepsy.

What is Pantocalcin Dosage, How to Use It?
Pantocalcin is administered orally, 15-30 minutes after meals.
The recommended single dose for adults is 0.5-1 g, the recommended single dose for children is 0.25-0.5 g.
The maximum daily dose for adults is 1.5-3 g, the maximum daily dose for children is 0.75-3 g.
The recommended duration of treatment is from 1-4 months. In some cases, it can last up to 6 months. It is possible to repeat the treatment after 3–6 months.
To enhance performance, the recommended dosage of Pantocalcin is 0.25 g 3 times a day.
Pantocalcin prolongs the effects of barbiturates and enhances the effects of anticonvulsant drugs, nootropic drugs, and central nervous system stimulants; therefore, precautions should be taken to ensure that the combined use of these drugs with Pantocalcin will not result in any additional side effects.
Pantocaltcin might mitigate the side effects of phenobarbital, finlepsin, and antipsychotics.
Pantocalcin effects can be increased if the drug is combined with glycine or xydifon.

Nanotropil® (previously known as Phenotropil) was part of the cosmonaut's kit in the USSR. It is a phenyl derivative of Piracetam which is reported to be more neuroprotective compared to the original compound. It was shown to possess psychostimulatory and various adaptogenic and neuromodulator properties. Fast US domestic shipping is available.
