Methylene Blue (Supplement)

"19th Century Discovery, Holding Strong"

Methylene Blue is a synthetic compound used as a nootropic to increase memory, mood and longevity. Research into Methylene Blue for its therapeutic value goes back to the late 1800’s. But it’s only in the last couple of decades that scientists have been able to decode exactly how Methylene Blue works in the brain. All the way down to the molecular level in mitochondria.

How

Methylene Blue (Supplement)

can help you:

Methylene Blue is currently being studied as potential therapy for mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders. All sharing a common problem with mitochondrial function.

Brain

  • Methylene Blue inhibits monoamine oxidase and acetylcholinesterase activity which increases levels of catecholamines and acetylcholine. And boosts serotonin and norepinephrine affecting anxiety, depression and memory (1).
  • Methylene Blue assists brain cell respiration by increasing oxygen. And donating electrons to the electron transport chain within mitochondria. This same process is used to feed mitochondrial ATP when you eat. So MB provides this fuel without you having to eat (2).
  • Neuroprotectant: Methylene Blue is a potent antioxidant. Reactive oxygen species are produced inside mitochondria. The first free radical that is formed inside a cell is superoxide. MB will bind to superoxide and reduce it to water. It stops the oxidative cascade at its very beginning (3).
  • 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 4).

Longevity

  • Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are associated with a buildup of the protein Tau. Clinical trials show that Methylene Blue inhibits Tau formation. And is under consideration as a treatment for Alzheimer’s (5).
  • Methylene Blue boosts neuron resistance to the formation of amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. And helps repair impairments in mitochondrial function and cellular metabolism (6).
  • Research shows that Methylene Blue is an effective anti-aging nootropic. MB increases mitochondrial complex IV by 30%, enhances cellular oxygen consumption by 37-70%, increases heme synthesis, and reverses premature senescence caused by H2O2 or cadmium (7).

Side Effects / Contraindications

  • Please consult with your healthcare professional before using this compound.
  • May cause serotonin syndrome, do not combine with other nootropics.

Allergies

  • Aanaphylaxis resulting from methylene blue has been very rarely reported in the medical literature. To the extent of our knowledge, there have been only two reports of anaphylaxis after methylene blue dye was used for sentinel lymph node mapping in adults

Methylene blue enhances my reading speed and comprehension abilities. It seems to help me get into a flow state much easier too. I like how it makes me function at a very low dose (50-100mcg).
