What is Selank?
Selank belongs to a class of molecules called synthetic peptides. Combining the sequence of a peptide called tuftsin with another sequence that improves its molecular stability produces Selank. Tuftsin is a peptide that closely relates to immune function. It occurs naturally and makes up one part of the natural antibody IgG.
It is a small peptide compared to most naturally occurring proteins. Selank was developed at the Institute of Molecular Genetics of the Russian Academy of Sciences along with the nootropic drug Semax, sometimes called its cousin peptide.
Selank has been approved in Russia for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) and for its use as a nootropic. In clinical trials, the drugs shows it provides a sustained nootropic and anxiolytic effect. This is useful for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
Benefits of Selank
While most prescription drugs cause many unwanted side effects, studies show this peptide to have no negative side-effects or risk of addiction. Studies show Tuftsin and Selank reduces anxiety and increases serotonin levels in animal models.
Additionally, some of the potential benefits of Selank may include:
- Improves anxiety
- Improves learning
- Enhances memory
- Helps with brain damage recovery: Increases BDNF (Brain-derived neurotrophic factor), an important brain-growth compound
- Helps stabilize enkephalins in the blood: These counteract the stress response
- Aids in alcohol withdrawal
- Helps prevent weight gain and reduce cholesterol
Selank may be able to strengthen immune function by increasing IL-6 in blood cells. IL-6 is an inflammatory protein that is believed to help fight off infections. Research shows Selank stimulates the release of interferons, which are anti-viral molecules.
Selank is a peptide nasal spray. This is because it will be digested by the stomach if taken orally. Inhaling it is more effective for delivery to the bloodstream and into the brain.
