Deprenyl To Prevent Mental Decline
Deprenyl is an amazing brain power drug to boost cognition, improve memory, increase alertness and decrease depression and mental decline. As a mind boosting drug, deprenyl belongs to the category of medicines known as nootropic drugs. Also known as selegiline or cyprenil, deprenyl stimulates the brain activity by increasing the dopamine levels in the brain.
This wonderful mind booster was first designed and introduced as a ‘psychic energizer’ with anti depressant effects. As deprenyl acts by increasing the dopamine levels in the brain which linked with a person’s mood and energy, deprenyl acts as an effective anti depressant to brighten mood and enhance the overall energy of the mind and body.
Today deprenyl is used to treat a variety of mental disorders and conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, senile dementia, alcoholism, dyslexia, and alzhiemer’s disease. As an effective alzhiemer’s disease treatment, deprenyl is known to slow down mental decline along with improving memory and concentration.
Apart from this, deprenyl also has therapeutic benefits in conditions such as: cerebral infarction a stroke ), hormone inadequacy, amyotrophic lateralizing sclerosis ( Lou Gherig's disease ), fatigue, chronic pain, gastric ulcers, senile dementia, sexual dysfunction, multiple sclerosis, learning difficulties, blepharospasm, hypertension, depression and cancer.
As deprenyl increases the dopamine levels in the brain, it is also known to protect and preserve nerve cells from an increasing number of neurotoxins and other such free radical damage and cognitive decline. Deprenyl thus apart from being an effective cognitive enhancer for alzhiemer’s disease, depression and other mind related disorders also act as a wonderful anti ageing supplement to rejuvenate and revitalize the mind and body and prevent the occurrence of any serious age related mental decline.
Since dopamine levels in the brain are known to decrease with age, it becomes imperative that after the age of 40, if a person feels a slight decline in his mental abilities along with experiencing mild depression and general low mood, one must supplement his/her diet with deprenyl selegiline to boost memory, increase energy and thereby increase the overall life expectancy.
As deprenyl is a nootropic drug, it has very few to zero side effects with no known contraindications and toxicity. Deprenyl’s dosage is 2.5mg to 5mg once, twice or three times a week, or, 1mg to 3mg per day, with regular breaks. Few mild side effects related to the use of this medicine are nausea, heartburn, upset stomach, irritability, hyper-excitability, psychomotor agitation and insomnia. You must therefore consult a doctor before taking this medicine.
