Centrophenoxine gives the body and brain a boost, and improves energy levels. Shown to be extremely effective in the treatment of senile dementia and Alzheimer’s, it is also an invaluable weapon in the war against ageing.
Centrophenoxine, also known as Lucidril, works by ‘cleaning out’ the cells in your body and brain. It contains a combination of DMAE, a natural substance, commonly found in fish, and pCPA, a synthetic compound that resembles a variety of plant hormones.
Centrophenoxine is considered to be completely non-toxic, and have a number of therapeutic benefits. It has been widely used in the treatment of cerebral atrophy, brain injury, Alzheimer’s, and strokes. It has also been found to be very effective in the treatment of brain damage caused by chemicals or drugs, including excessive alcohol consumption.
More generally, Centrophenoxine is known to improve memory in older people and enhance overall cognition. People taking it report feeling a general sense of improved mental performance, including increased vigilance and alertness. After just a few weeks of treatment, patients find their memory has improved and they are more able to retain new information.
Centrophenoxine stimulates chemical activity in the brain. It works by enhancing the uptake of glucose and oxygen. Glucose is the chief brain fuel, and is essential for energy production.
As we age, the nerve cells of the brain become damaged and in senile dementia, these changes are much worse. By stimulating the uptake of glucose to the brain, Centrophenoxine helps rectify the damage caused by the ageing process.
Centrophenoxine also removes potassium build-up in the brain, heart, lung and skin cells. This build-up is described as Lipofuscin, and over a lifetime it can sometimes reach 30 per cent of the cells’ volume. The more lipofuscin a cell accumulates, the less functional it becomes, and once a critical threshold has been reached, the cell may die.
Studies have shown that low Lipofuscin levels lead to healthier cellular function. By ‘cleaning out’ this biochemical clutter, Centrophenoxine improves the function and longevity of cells in your body and brain.
By combating potassium build-up in the cells, Centrophenoxine can also remove the visible signs of ageing on the body – known as age or liver spots.
Centrophenoxine also increases the production of chemicals that are essential to the proper functioning of the brain, such as RNA and protein. RNA is derived from DNA in the cell nucleus, and enables neurons to form proteins, which help encode memory, as well as repair cell damage.
It is Centrophenoxine’s ability to slow down – and even stop the deterioration of the brain functions – that makes it an extremely important drug in treating brain diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and senile dementia.
Part of a class of drugs known as nootropic drugs – or ‘smart drugs’, Centrophenoxine is one of the original anti-ageing, neuro-energizing drugs.
The word nootropic itself is derived from the Greek words ‘noos’ or ‘mind’ and ‘tropein’, which means bend or turn.
Centrophenoxine is an anti-ageing drug, widely used to increase brain energy. It has been found to be extremely effective in the treatment of brain damage due to old age, stroke or toxic chemicals.
Centrophenoxine is used to enhance the body’s defense against free radical damage caused by ageing. It is particularly useful in the treatment of senile dementia, where regular use can prevent further mental deterioration.
Often referred to as an ‘ageing reversal drug’, Centrophenoxine has been clinically proven to improve memory and increase the speed at which new information is stored and used. It is effective in fighting both cerebral ageing and age-related diseases.
Centrophenoxine is used in the treatment of:
Centrophenoxine is also beneficial in protecting against harmful environmental chemicals.
Developed at the French National Scientific Research centre in 1959, Centrophenoxine has been studied and used for many years. It has played a central role in many anti-ageing experiments and has found to be extremely effective in the treatment of senile dementia and Alzheimer’s.
In a double blind trial of 50 dementia patients with an average age of 76, half of them demonstrated mental and physical improvements within just eight weeks of a 250mg twice-daily dosage of Centrophenoxine.
This, and many other experiments were carried out by Professor ZS Nagy, an internationally renowned proponent of the use of Centrophenoxine as an anti-ageing agent. Professor Nagy reports that people who use Centrophenoxine regularly have “better mental and physical performance compared to their counterparts”.
Studies on animals, measuring learning abilities and memory, showed that older animals whose Lipofuscin levels were reduced by Centrophenoxine, also demonstrated improved mental performance. Their memory and learning abilities were restored to the level of similar, healthy young animals.
Older people with significant intellectual decline may need three to six 250mg tablets per day, taken preferably with breakfast and lunch in order to avoid insomnia.
Healthy younger people may need only one or two 250mg tablets daily. To avoid any slight acetylcholine excess in the body occurring, it is wise to take occasional breaks of around one day a week.
Centrophenoxine is a powerful brain enhancer that increases peripheral nervous system acetylcholine levels. Too much acetylcholine can cause headaches, neck, jaw and shoulder muscle tension. It can also lead to insomnia, irritability and hyperexcitability, agitation and restlessness.
If any of these symptoms occur, simply discontinue Centrophenoxine for a few days, then try a reduced dosage.
If you are suffering from depression, mania, seizure disorders or Parkinson’s disease, you should avoid Centrophenoxine, as too much acetylcholine may worsen these conditions. Pregnant women should also avoid Centrophenoxine.
Centrophenoxine - formerly known as Lucidril increases the brain's use of glucose and improves brain energy levels. It also removes a potassium build up in the brain, heart, lung and skin cells, and is vital for the efficient communication of a cell to transfer potassium and sodium across its membranes. Centrophenoxine has shown an ability to remove the visible signs of excessive potassium build up - age or liver spots
Centrophenoxine "cleans out" the cells in your body and brain, improving their function and their longevity
Centrophenoxine has long being known to be extremely effective at reducing lipofuscin levels. Lipofuscin describes the potassium build up in the brain, heart, lung and skin cells. This biochemical clutter accumulates over a lifetime, sometimes reaching 30% of the cell volume in aged animals.
The more lipofuscin a cell accumulates, the less functional it becomes, and once a critical threshold has been reached the cell may die. Both human and animal studies have shown that low lipofuscin levels correlate with healthy cellular function, while high lipofuscin accompanies poor cellular health.
Through a variety of animal experiments measuring learning abilities and memory, aged animals whose high lipofuscin levels were reduced by Centrophenoxine, also had their memory and learning abilities restored to a level similar to healthy young animals, while untreated high lipofuscin control animals did not.
Centrophenoxine also generally improves brain function. It enhances neuronal glucose (the chief brain fuel) and oxygen uptake, while increasing carbon dioxide production. In addition, Centrophenoxine raises neuronal RNA (derived from DNA in the cell nucleus) which enables neurons to form proteins which help encode memory, as well as repair cell damage.
Centrophenoxine reverses the age-related drop in RNA and protein production. One study with 76 healthy elderly, who suffered from significant intellectual deterioration, found that Centrophenoxine increased storage of new information into long term memory, while also increasing vigilance and alertness, after only several weeks of treatment.
Dosage: Elderly people with significant intellectual decline/ may need three to six 250mg tablets per day taken preferably with breakfast and lunch, in order to avoid insomnia. Healthy younger people may need only one or two 250mg tablets daily with breakfast or lunch. To avoid any slight acetylcholine excess occurring, it is wise take occasional breaks from dosage (say, one day a week).
Caution: Centrophenoxine is a powerful enhancer of brain and peripheral nervous system acetylcholine levels, and too much acetylcholine can lead to headaches, neck, jaw and shoulder muscle tension, insomnia, irritability and hyperexcitability, agitation and restlessness. If any of these occur, simply discontinue Centrophenoxine for a few days and then try a reduced dosage. Also, those with major depression, mania, seizure disorders or Parkinson's disease should avoid Centrophenoxine, as too much acetylcholine may worsen these conditions. Also, pregnant women should avoid Centrophenoxine.
