Centrophenoxine has a wide range of benefits both cognitive and physical. Research shows it may improve longevity and mental alertness. It is widely considered to be a powerful antioxidant and neuroprotectant.
Centrophenoxine may also reduce lipofuscin, which are known aging pigments, found in liver, kidney, heart muscle and nerve cells, among others. Research shows that low lipofuscin levels correlate with healthy cellular function.
Mode of Action
The exact mechanism of action is not entirely known. Centrophenoxine is a combination of pCPA (paracholrphenoxyacetic) and a DMAE. It is cholinergic compound, meaning it enhances the action of choline, which is a precursor to the very important neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is known for its role in both motor and memory functions.
Centrophenoxine also boosts neuronal glucose and oxygen uptake in the brain, which may contribute to improving memory.
Standard dosage for Centrophenoxine is 250mg 2-4 times per day. Centrophenoxine is water soluble.
Centrophenoxine is considered non-toxic and generally safe and well tolerated. However, it should not be taken if pregnant or by those who may become pregnant.
