What Is Methylene Blue

Methylene Blue, acts as a nootropic, to enhance mitochondrial function leading to a variety of benefits such as increased energy levels, improved physical health, and enhanced cognitive function. With the ability to reduce inflammation and the build up of toxic proteins in the brain as well as provide neuroprotective effects, Methylene Blue may be an answer to slow or halt the progression of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

Health Benefits of Methylene Blue

COGNITIVE ENHANCEMENT:The cognitive benefits arise from the ability to elevate energy production in brain cells and enhance mitochondrial activity. These actions support neurotransmitter function and facilitate smoother communication between neurons, resulting in greater memory, attention, and overall mental performance.

MOOD ELEVATION: Methylene Blue can amplify the activity of neurotransmitters such as serotonin and norepinephrine aiding in mood regulation and alleviating symptoms associated with depression and anxiety.

ANTI -AGING BENEFITS: Mitochondrial dysfunction has been linked to the aging process. Methylene Blue may enhance mitochondrial function to slow aging as well as remove senescent cells, allowing healthy new cells to form instead.

NEUROPROTECTIVE EFFECTS: Through inhibition of neurofibrillary tangles and plaques, Methylene Blue may be an answer to slowing or halting the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. It also prevents neurodegeneration in cases of traumatic brain injury and Parkinson’s disease via its mitochondrial effects.

ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTI-INFLAMMATORY EFFECTS: As a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent, Methylene Blue can help neutralize harmful free radicals that may damage cells and will help modulate the body’s inflammatory response.

INCREASE IN ENERGY: By supporting the electron transport chain, mitochondrial function improves, therefore increasing ATP synthesis and overall energy production.

WARNING: Methylene Blue will discolor bodily fluids. Methylene Blue is an MAOI (monoamine oxidase inhibitors) therefore at high doses there may be a concern when combined with other serotonergic agents such as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors)it should be noted that the dosing suggested is considered low dosing, therefore, providing great benefit while avoiding serotonin syndrome.
