Brand name: Olmifon
Chemical name: benzhydrylsulphinyl-acetohydroxamic acid
Description: Adrafinil is a mild central nervous system stimulant used in the treatment of fatigue and sleepiness. It is said to increase mental acuity and is sometimes marketed as a “eugeroic” (“causing good arousal”).
Brand name: Draganon, Sarpul, Ampamet
Chemical name: 1-(4-Methoxybenzoyl)-2-pyrrolidinone
Classification: learning, memory, neuro-protectant
Description: Aniracetam is said to improve memory recall, increase intellectual clarity, improve immune function, and generate feelings of health and well-being, particularly in the elderly. Though hundreds of research papers have been published about aniracetam its mechanism of action and function are not well understood.
Brand names: Dehydroepiandrosterone, Fidelin, OVIGYN-D
Chemical name: dehydroepiandrosterone
Claaification: anti-aging, memory, cognitive function
Description: DHEA is a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal gland; Natural levels drop with age. DHEA supplements are said to increase energy, enhance memory and cognitive function, improve immunity, and reduce the effects of stress.
Brand names: DMAE, Deanol
Chemical name: di-methyl-amino-ethanol
Classification: anti-oxidant, memory, learning
Description: DMAE is a precursor of choline and an anti-oxidant that is found naturally in the brain. It is said to improve memory and learning as well as increasing ability to concentrate.
Brand names: Attentil, Vigilor, BP 662, Piperazine
Chemical name: 1-(1,3-benzodioxol-5-ylmethyl)-4-[(4-chlorophenoxy)acetyl]piperazine
Classification: stimulant, learning, memory
Description: Fipexide is a mild stimulant that is thought to indirectly affect dopamine levels in the brain. It is said to improve short term memory, attention, learning, and cognition. There is a risk of serious liver damage and high fever with use. Fipexide, more commonly called by the brand name Attentil, is a drug developed in Italy in 1983. It is a psychoactive drug which means that this chemical substance acts primarily upon the central nervous system and could affect one’s brain functions, which in this case usually results in a change of mood, cognitive behavior, perception and learning.
Brand name: Neurontin, Aclonium, Novo-Gabapentin, Gralise, Horizant, Gabarone
Chemical name: 1-(aminomethyl)cyclohexanacetic acid
Classification: anticonvulsant, tranquilizer
Description: Gabapentin is prescribed — usually in combination with other medications — for the treatment of seizure disorders, though its anticonvulsant mechanism is not known. It is sometimes prescribed for the management of neuralgia (nerve pain) and has been prescribed off-label for the treatment of mood disorders, anxiety, and tardive dyskinesia (a neurological syndrome caused by the long-term use of neuroleptic drugs).
Brand names: GH-3, Procaine, Novocaine
Chemical name: 4-aminobenzoic acid 2-(diethylamino)ethyl ester
Classification: anti-aging, memory, cognition
Description: Gerovital is a combination of procaine with an anti-oxidant and preservative. It has been marketed as a anti-aging drug, but double-blind studies have shown no efficacy and significant health risks. It was banned by the FDA in 1982.
Brand names: G, Sodium Oxybate, Xyrem, Alcover
Chemical name: gamma-hydroxybutyrate
Classification: depressant intoxicant
Description: GHB is a sedative used both as a prescription sleep-aid and as a recreational intoxicant. It is known for its ability to induce a short (several hour) coma-like sleep at high doses. A number of GHB-related deaths in combination with its addiction potential led to it being controlled by Federal law in 1999.
Brand names: Maidenhair Tree, Kew Tree
Chemical name: ginkgolides, bilobalide
Classification: increases blood flow
Description: The extract of the Ginkgo leaves contains flavonoid glycosides and terpenoids (ginkgolides, bilobalides) and has been used pharmaceutically for hundreds of years. It has many alleged nootropic properties, and is mainly used as memory and concentration enhancer, and anti-vertigo agent. Ginkgo extract seems to have three effects on the human body: it improves blood flow (including microcirculation in small capillaries) to most tissues and organs; it protects against oxidative cell damage from free radicals; and it blocks many of the effects of PAF (platelet aggregation, blood clotting) that have been related to the development of a number of cardiovascular, renal, respiratory and CNS (Central Nervous System) disorders.
Human Growth Hormone
Brand names: HGH, Somatotropin, CB-311
Chemical name: adenohypophyseal growth hormone
Description: Human Growth Hormone is a protein produced by the pituitary gland to promote cell growth. It has been marketed as an anti-aging supplement though there is little evidence to support this claim and incidence of side effects is high.
Brand names: Hydergine, Gerimal, Niloric, Alkergot, Circanol, Deapril-ST, Redergin, Trigot
Chemical name: Dihydroergotoxine mesylate
Classification: anti-oxidant, memory, blood flow, dementia
Description: Ergoloid mesylate is a dihydrogenated ergot (Claviceps purpurea) derivative alkaloid used as a vasodilator agent. Ergoloid Mesylate is the only vasodilator that has shown mild benefits in the treatment of vascular dementia. It was approved by the FDA in 1951.
Brand names: Centrophenoxine, Lucidril, Acephen
Chemical name: (4-chlorophenoxy)acetic acid 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl ester
Classification: memory, anti-aging
Description: Meclofenoxate is broken down by the liver into DMAE and PCPA (parachlorphenoxyacetic acid). It has been shown to cause mild memory improvement in people with dementia and has been marketed as an anti-aging supplement.
Brand names: MEL, Melatonin, MLT, Circadin, Mela-T, Melatol, Melatonex, Melatonine, Melovine, MT6, Night Rest
Chemical name: N-[2-(5-methoxy-1h-indol-3-yl)ethyl]acetamide
Classification: sleep regulator
Description: Melatonin is a biogenic amine that is found in animals, plants and microbes. Aaron B. Lerner of Yale University is credited for naming the hormone and for defining its chemical structure in 1958. In mammals, melatonin is produced by the pineal gland. The pineal gland is small endocrine gland, about the size of a rice grain and shaped like a pine cone (hence the name), that is located in the center of the brain (rostro-dorsal to the superior colliculus) but outside the blood-brain barrier. The secretion of melatonin increases in darkness and decreases during exposure to light, thereby regulating the circadian rhythms of several biological functions, including the sleep-wake cycle. In particular, melatonin regulates the sleep-wake cycle by chemically causing drowsiness and lowering the body temperature. Melatonin is also implicated in the regulation of mood, learning and memory, immune activity, dreaming, fertility and reproduction. Melatonin is also an effective antioxidant. Most of the actions of melatonin are mediated through the binding and activation of melatonin receptors. Individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) may have lower than normal levels of melatonin. A 2008 study found that unaffected parents of individuals with ASD also have lower melatonin levels, and that the deficits were associated with low activity of the ASMT gene, which encodes the last enzyme of melatonin synthesis. Reduced melatonin production has also been proposed as a likely factor in the significantly higher cancer rates in night workers.
Brand names: Provigil, Modavigil, Armodafinil, Nuvigil, Modiodal, Sparlon, Alertec
Chemical name: benzhydrylsulphinylacetamide Classification: stimulant, wakefulness promoter, narcolepsy treatment
Description: Modafinil is a stimulant drug marketed as a ‘wakefulness promoting agent’ and is one of the stimulants used in the treatment of narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is caused by dysfunction of a family of wakefulness-promoting and sleep-suppressing peptides, the orexins, whose neurons are activated by modafinil. The prexin neuron activation is associated with psychoactivation and euphoria. The exact mechanism of action is unclear, although in vitro studies have shown it to inhibit the reuptake of dopamine by binding to the dopamine reuptake pump, and lead to an increase in extracellular dopamine. Modafinil activates glutamatergic circuits while inhibiting GABA.
