Semax is a designer drug, produced in Russia during the 1980s with the express intention of improving cognitive function.
Semax is a neuroactive peptide derived from corticotropin with the structure Pro8-Gly9-Pro10 ACTH(4-10). It shares a similar history, potency and chemical make-up with Noopept powder. It was initially pursued as a treatment for stroke victims suffering bran damage but was subsequently determined to promote significant cognitive enhancement in healthy individuals as well.
In addition to stimulating the central nervous system (enhancing energy and metabolism) it works to modulate receptors for various brain chemicals: acetylcholine, dopamine, serotonin, adenosine, and histamine.
This results in the mental boost associated with the drug and allows users to perform brain tasks with increased vigor, clarity, and efficiency.
Semax may also have some use in reducing symptoms associated with stress and depression. At least one study has shown that (for those suffering from mental illness, at least) it had a calming, sedative effect that reduced many of their anxiety related issues.

Effect of Semax
It is particularly beneficial to victims of systolic stroke and other forms of head trauma at the distal end but also has been used to treat cognitive disorders, optic nerve diseases and peptic ulcers.
In addition, Semax increases the synthesis of neurotrophins, proteins, and biological substrates to protect and repair neurons, while also reducing antibiotics. The drug has high neuroprotective properties.
Semax has a wide range of advantages, which can improve memory, learning ability, alertness, reasoning ability, perception, attention, production, immune system function, and even improve mood.
Other benefits related to learning and memory come from the fact that Semax enhances neuroplasticity and increases glutamate and cholinergic activity. After continuous exhausted mental work, Semax has been observed to improve the brain's ability to adapt to environmental stressors and relieve fatigue symptoms.
By increasing levels of dopamine and serotonin, it can be used as a treatment for depression, anxiety and even sleep disorders. It is also possible to use Semax to cure or reduce the benefits of aging-induced Alzheimer's and other degenerative cognitive impairments or memory loss.
Side effect of Semax
Safety and possible side-effects of long-term semax use haven't been established in clinical research studies.
