What Are Brain Supplements

brain booster pills Just what is Idebenone? Those of you with inquired into this compound will see that the world wide web is awash effortlessly manner of bizarre and fascinating claims; a far more advanced version of coq10 is a very common claim, a biologically available version of coq10 another – one site even purports (not much of a surprise because they sell just coq10) that idebenone is usually a synthetic, Indian chemical totally unrelated to coq10 and intrinsically dangerous. Confused? Smartnootropics to save the day.


Idebenone is usually a short-chain quinone when compared to coq10 an extended chain quinone therefore possesses both superior bioavailability and also a faster peak plasma concentration profile. Idebenone is really a potent antioxidant and that is currently being investigated due to the therapeutic role in neuromuscular disorders and unlike coq10 has demonstrated the power to renew cellular ATP levels in abnormal conditions through cytosolic-mitochondrial shuttling. Idebenone also increased learning and memory in mice studies and has now been claimed to activate NGF inside the human brain. Finally Idebenone is shown to uprate producing the life-extending enzyme: superoxide dismutase in specific cortical regions.


May benefit neuromuscular disorders

Improves memory and learning and could increase brain dopamine levels

Has been indicated to accelerate the sell of the neurotransmitter serotonin.

Powerful antioxidant

May improve age related mitochondrial decline

Increases manufacturing of superoxide dismutase


At high doses idebenone has demonstrated a capability to cause cellular death via genomic DNA fragmentation, although the study dose could be near impossible to suit in-vivo reducing doses exhibited no such toxicity. Idebenone is theorised to stimulate oxygen radical production in mitochondrial electron transport plus some now label it a “pro-oxidant” efficient at accelerating your aging – it truly is unclear whether its antioxidant profile and manufacturing of superoxide dismutase are sufficient to counteract this or whether an extra antioxidant (ALA) could sufficiently nullify idebenone’s pro-oxidant capacity.


Idebenone is well tolerated and doses range between a mere 70mg as much as 200mg or greater. As always you need to err assisting caution and initiate with an allergy test.


I cannot inquire into Idebenone’s antioxidant capacity. From a single 150mg dose daily for the week I experienced an apparent increase in energy and positivity I would normally associate with the uprating on the neurotransmitter serotonin. No unwanted side effects were noted. Due to the possible pro-oxidant nature of the chemical I prefer to suspend further testing until more numerous studies have been completed.
