Cerebrolysin is a nootropic drug which consists of low-molecular peptides which possesses neuroprotective and neurotrophic repair properties. The active fragment of Cerebrolysin is made of proteins with very low molecular masses that do not exceed 10.000 daltons. This means they can penetrate the blood-brain barrier and reach neurons directly. Cerebrolysin has been proven to have neurotrophic action similar to nerve growth factors, which cause peripheral and central neuronal stimulation.
It improves efficiency within the brain’s aerobic metabolic processes and improves intracellular peptide synthesis. The neuroprotective properties of this nootropic agent help to shield neurons from lactocidosis, to prevent the formation of free radicals, and have been studied in Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS ALS, TBI, and stroke. Cerebrolysin helps promote the growth of new brain cells, which helps improve brain cell communication enhancing learning capacity.
