N-Acetyl Semax and Cognitive PerformanceThere is reason to believe that N-acetyl Semax
is an effective means of boosting learning and memory,
particularly in individuals suffering from neurological impairment of these functions.
According to research out of Canada, the United States, and China, ACTH, the natural protein
on which N-acetyl Semax is based, protects learning and memory function in mouse models of epilepsy.
The protein has long been used in the treatment of epileptic disorders as a first-line defense
against development arrest or regression.
Semax is a very effective derivative of ACTH and may offer benefits that the natural
peptide does not. Though more research needs to be done, he points out that ACTH,
even at low doses, can prevent learning and memory dysfunction in the setting of seizure.
This may, in turn, suggest that ACTH and Semax have nootropic properties and that they may be able to
not only offset learning and memory deficits in the
setting of disease,but may also boost cognitive performance if administered regularly and in low doses.
