CORTEXIN is used for various purposes related to the central nervous system. It is derived from the brain tissue of young animals, typically pigs or cattle, and contains a mixture of neuropeptides and amino acids. Cortexin is believed to have neuroprotective and neuroregenerative effects.
Cortexin is commonly used in the treatment of various neurological disorders, such as traumatic brain injury, stroke, neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s), and cognitive impairments. It is also sometimes used in the management of epilepsy and in postoperative recovery to support brain function.
- 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.
The exact mechanisms of action of Cortexin are not fully understood, but it is thought to enhance the metabolism and energy supply of brain cells, improve neuronal communication, and promote the growth and repair of nerve tissue. It’s important to note that Cortexin should only be used under the supervision and prescription of a qualified healthcare professional. The specific dosage and treatment regimen will vary depending on the individual’s condition and medical history.
