CORTEXIN is a peptide and vitamin complex for improving brain energy metabolism. Cortexin provides nootropic, neuroprotective, antioxidative and tissue-specific action. It improves cerebral functions, learning abilities and memory, alertness and stress tolerance. Stimulates reparative processes in the brain and prevents the formation of free radicals.
Improves Higher Cerebral Functions.
Improves Processes of Learning and Memory.
Increase Concentration of Attention.
Increase Tolerance to Different Stresses.
Neuroprotective Effect Protects Neurons Against Different Endogenous Neurotoxic Factors.
Antioxidant Effect Inhibits Peroxidation of Lipids in Neurons, Increases Survival of Neurons.
Tissue-specific Effect Activates Metabolism of Neurons of Central and Peripheral Nervous System.
GUARANTEE & EXPIRY DATE
100% Original from the Russian JSC GEROPHARM.
Cortexin is a complex of polypeptide fractions penetrating the blood-brain barrier and affecting nervous cells. Has a neuroprotective effect and reduces toxic impact of psychotropic agents. Due to its antioxidative action Cortexin inhibits oxidative stress. The drug improves the bioelectrical activity of the brain. Mechanism of action of Cortexin is determined by activation of neuronal peptides and neurotrophic cerebral factors; optimization of metabolic balance of excitatory and inhibitory amino acids, dopamine, serotonin; and GABAergic action.
