Product Brand Name: Centrophenoxine®
Generic Name: Lucidril
Description: Centrophenoxine cleans out
the cells in your body and brain, improving their function and their longevity
Centrophenoxine has long being known to be extremely effective at reducing
lipofuscin levels. Lipofuscin describes the potassium build up in the
brain, heart, lung and skin cells. This biochemical clutter accumulates
over a lifetime, sometimes reaching 30% of the cell volume in aged animals.
The more lipofuscin a cell accumulates, the less functional it becomes,
and once a critical threshold has been reached the cell may die. Both
human and animal studies have shown that low lipofuscin levels correlate
with healthy cellular function, while high lipofuscin accompanies poor
Through a variety of animal experiments measuring learning abilities
and memory, aged animals whose high lipofuscin levels were reduced by
Centrophenoxine, also had their memory and learning abilities restored
to a level similar to healthy young animals, while untreated high lipofuscin
control animals did not.
Centrophenoxine also generally improves brain function. It enhances neuronal
glucose (the chief brain fuel) and oxygen uptake, while increasing carbon
dioxide production. In addition, Centrophenoxine raises neuronal RNA (derived
from DNA in the cell nucleus) which enables neurons to form proteins which
help encode memory, as well as repair cell damage.
Centrophenoxine reverses the age-related drop in RNA and protein production.
One study with 76 healthy elderly, who suffered from significant intellectual
deterioration, found that Centrophenoxine increased storage of new information
into long term memory, while also increasing vigilance and alertness,
after only several weeks of treatment.
Elderly people with significant intellectual decline/ may need three to
six 250mg tablets per day taken preferably with breakfast and lunch, in
order to avoid insomnia. Healthy younger people may need only one or two
250mg tablets daily with breakfast or lunch. To avoid any slight acetylcholine
excess occurring, it is wise take occasional breaks from dosage (say,
one day a week).
Centrophenoxine is a powerful enhancer of brain and peripheral nervous
system acetylcholine levels, and too much acetylcholine can lead to headaches,
neck, jaw and shoulder muscle tension, insomnia, irritability and hyperexcitability,
agitation and restlessness. If any of these occur, simply discontinue
Centrophenoxine for a few days and then try a reduced dosage. Also, those
with major depression, mania, seizure disorders or Parkinson's disease
should avoid Centrophenoxine, as too much acetylcholine may worsen these
conditions. Also, pregnant women should avoid Centrophenoxine.
