NeuroPeptide Spotlight: Cerebrolysin

Acts Like Adderall For The Brain

Primary Benefit:  CEREBROLYSIN is a potent peptide complex that is used to treat traumatic brain injury (TBI), ADHD, autism, stroke, senile dementia, and Alzheimer's disease.  Cerebrolysin is currently approved for use in 44 countries as a treatment for dementia and stroke. There is 70 years of use and research behind it.  It was approved in Austria in 1950!


  • Neuron growth

  • Improved memory

  • Neuroprotective

  • Neurotrophic repair properties

  • Penetrates the BBB, as the active portion is less than 10,000 Daltons.

  • Stimulates central and peripheral neural growth factors

  • Improves cognitive function

  • Has been used for TBI, Alzheimer’s and stroke patients.

  • Shown to be effective in autism and Asperger’s syndrome at very low doses

  • Historically given intravenously, but bioavailable and effective when given orally

Secondary Role:

  • Increased energy metabolism (the decrease in the level of lactate in the nervous tissue and the optimization of mitochondrial processes).

  • Increased synaptic regeneration, enhanced neurogenesis, decreased apoptosis, increased dendritic spine density and dendritic length as well as antioxidative and anti-inflammatory effects.

  • Increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) production... which directly leads to the increased brain plasticity needed for faster learning and better memory retention.

Dosage: 1 ml in the morning, subcutaneously, several times a week or as needed.  

1 ml contains 215.2 mg of active concentrate.  For the average person 1 ml will be enough to feel more energy, brain clarity, improve memory and cognitive functions. Use it on days when you need/want to accomplish more than usual.

Optional Dosages: 5-10 ml per day for 10-20 days intramuscular (IM).  

Higher doses up to 50 ml could be used (as an IV).  

Side Effects:  No adverse events or side effects.  Energizing. If taken too late in the day could affect sleep.   After several months, we suggest cycling off for a while.  

Description: Cerebrolysin contains natural neuropeptides that stimulate protein synthesis and neuron growth, support their functions, and help them to communicate with each other. Cerebrolysin restores damaged neurons and slows down further damage, as well as protects them from the onset of symptoms. Cerebrolysin is highly effective in treating neurodegenerative brain disorders. It also can be used by healthy people to improve memory and cognitive functions; to prevent memory loss and cognitive decline.

Cerebrolysin is a mix of enzymatically treated neuropeptides (20%) and amino acids (80%) derived from pig brains. Its constituents can include low molecular weight neuropeptides that are similar to fragments of natural neurotrophic factors (NTF), for example, ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF), brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), glial cells derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), nerve growth factor (NGF), and insulin-like growth factor (IGF).
