Structurally, Centrophenoxine is closely related to Dimethylethanolamine (DMAE), which is produced in small quantities in our brain. Scientists suspect DMAE inhibits the metabolism of acetylcholine in the peripheral tissues of the brain, and by doing so the compound increases the levels of the neurotransmitter and thereby boosts various cognitive functions.
The second compound in Centrophenoxine, Parachlorphenoxyacetic (pCPA) is the synthetic version of plant grown hormones called Auxins. Binding with DMAE, pCPA increases the bioavailability of the nootropic supplement. Once the supplement crosses the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB), it’s broken-down to pCPA and DMAE.
Apart from boosting acetylcholine levels in the brain, Centrophenoxine plays a major role as a neuroprotectant and brain energy booster. The supplement reduces accumulation of waste material inside the cells. As we age, more and more waste builds up inside the cells and causes liver spots on the skin. This is called as lipofuscin. Centrophenoxine removes 50% of the cellular waste in just eight weeks. In addition, the supplement increases oxygen and blood flow into the brain.
Centrophenoxine and ADHD: In the 1960’s, Deanol, a prescription form of Dimethylethanolamine was used to treat ADHD. In a research study, 74 children were split into two groups. One group was given 500mg of Deanol, and the other was prescribed 40mg of Ritalin. After 3 months, it was found that DMAE was as effective as Ritalin in treating ADHD.
Centrophenoxine and Fluid Intelligence: A number of cognitive abilities can be bundled up to define the term fluid intelligence. Abilities such as working memory, logical thinking, problem-solving and other related faculties make up our fluid intelligence. It’s believed that Centrophenoxine helps in the growth of new neurons and new brain synapses. The neurons and synapses fully develop in due course and enhance the overall cognitive functioning of the brain. The supplement also enhances creative thinking by increasing the communication between neurons in the two halves of the brain.
Centrophenoxine and Memory: Good memory is vital for everyone, not just those above the age of 60. A precursor of acetylcholine, Centrophenoxine is widely considered as one of the best choline sources currently available. The neurotransmitter acetylcholine plays a number of crucial roles in the brain, including the creation of new neurons and new synapses, controlling other neurotransmitters, memory formation, and promoting several cognitive processes. By increasing the levels of acetylcholine, Centrophenoxine helps improve reasoning and memory of the user.
