What Nootropics Do

brain booster pills Just what is Idebenone? Those of you who’ve inquired into this compound will see that the web is awash operating manner of bizarre and fascinating claims; an even more advanced version of coq10 is a very common claim, an even more biologically available version of coq10 another – one site even purports (not just a surprise given that they sell just coq10) that idebenone can be a synthetic, Indian chemical totally unrelated to coq10 and intrinsically dangerous. Confused? Smartnootropics can provide relief.


Idebenone can be a short-chain quinone when compared with coq10 a lengthy chain quinone and therefore possesses both superior bioavailability plus a faster peak plasma concentration profile. Idebenone is really a potent antioxidant and that is currently being investigated for the therapeutic role in neuromuscular disorders and unlike coq10 has demonstrated the power to renew cellular ATP levels in abnormal conditions through cytosolic-mitochondrial shuttling. Idebenone also increased learning and memory in mice studies and contains been claimed to activate NGF within the human brain. Finally Idebenone may uprate the creation of the life-extending enzyme: superoxide dismutase in specific cortical regions.


May benefit neuromuscular disorders

Improves memory and learning and could increase brain dopamine levels

Has been indicated to accelerate the start of the neurotransmitter serotonin.

Powerful antioxidant

May improve age related mitochondrial decline

Increases creation of superoxide dismutase


At high doses idebenone has demonstrated a capability to cause cellular death via genomic DNA fragmentation, nevertheless the study dose can be near impossible to check in-vivo minimizing doses exhibited no such toxicity. Idebenone been specifically theorised to stimulate oxygen radical production in mitochondrial electron transport and a few now label it a “pro-oxidant” able to accelerating growing older – it’s unclear whether its antioxidant profile and creation of superoxide dismutase are sufficient to counteract this method or whether yet another antioxidant (ALA) could sufficiently nullify idebenone’s pro-oxidant capacity.


Idebenone is well tolerated and doses vary from a mere 70mg around 200mg or greater. As always you ought to err assisting caution and start with an allergy test.


I cannot inquire into Idebenone’s antioxidant capacity. From a single 150mg dose daily for just a week I experienced an obvious increase in energy and positivity I would normally associate with the uprating on the neurotransmitter serotonin. No unwanted side effects were noted. Due to the possible pro-oxidant nature in this chemical I prefer to suspend further testing until more numerous studies have been completed.
