Cognitive and Mitochondrial enhancer. Delays cellular aging and enhances key mitochondrial biochemical pathways. Improves cellular and mitochondrial function and decreases the production of proteins linked to Alzheimer’s.
How it works
Your brain’s neurons rely almost entirely on mitochondria-derived energy. Failure of mitochondrial function can affect the rest of your body. But it’s particularly detrimental to your brain. This is where Methylene Blue steps in as one of the most important anti-aging and neurological disease-preventing biological agents.
Methylene Blue quickly crosses the blood-brain barrier. It improves mitochondrial efficiency and respiration, acts as an antioxidant, and increases brain cell lifespan, resulting in improved memory and mood. At low dosages, Methylene Blue is used to enhance mitochondrial function, increase cerebral blood flow, and acts as an antidepressant.
- Methylene Blue improves memory by increasing brain cell respiration, or how the brain cell utilizes oxygen. It increases ATP production to provide more cellular energy for better overall brain function including cognition, mood, and memory.
- Methylene Blue is an antioxidant. MB is a metabolic enhancer and an antioxidant. Methylene Blue binds to superoxide and reduces it to water. It stops the oxidative cascade at its very beginning before it gets a chance to do damage.
In 1891, German physician and Noble Prize recipient Paul Ehrlich pioneered the use of Methylene Blue in the treatment of malaria.
Ehrlich discovered that MB would quickly concentrate in the brain and selectively target diseased tissues in the body.
Methylene Blue is called “Magic Bullet” for this unique action.
Methylene Blue has since been used to treat dementia, cancer chemotherapy, malaria, methemoglobinemia, urinary tract infections, cyanide, and carbon monoxide poisoning.
How we age
As we live life, our brain chemistry, and metabolism changes.
↓ Mitochondrial energy levels decline
↓ Attention, memory, and mental agility decline
↓ Tau proteins and amyloid plaques clog the brain
↓ Are radicals damage brain cell mitochondria
↓ Cerebral blood flow declines
All of these changes can happen at any age. And are a product of the food we eat, what we drink, lifestyle habits, the air we breathe, and more.
Methylene Blue to the rescue
Methylene Blue helps age-related cognitive decline by boosting brain cell mitochondria energy levels and improving cerebral blood flow.
At low doses, methylene blue (MB) has been shown to protect the brain from disease by acting as an electron donor to the mitochondria which increases adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production. ATP is the currency of life and the energy that powers humans. If our production of ATP declines, our physical and mental performance declines. Even healthy individuals can benefit from a boost in ATP production.
MB is also able to increase the amount of NAD+ produced by mitochondria.
Low dose Methylene Blue provides memory-enhancing effects, boosts cognition, works as an antidepressant, is anti-aging, helps dementia, Huntington’s, and Alzheimer’s is anti-microbial, and even slows skin aging.
Methylene Blue is an antidepressant
Methylene Blue is a monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI). It inhibits MAO-A more than MAO-B but inhibits both at large doses
