The Best Internist And Integrative Medicine Doctor In Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Cho’s clinic utilizes Selank, a synthetic peptide enhancing mental function and mood. Derived from tuftsin, it boosts learning, memory, and energy, while acting as a neuropsychotropic agent to reduce anxiety and stress, leveraging GABA receptors to improve brain cell communication and mental activity.

 

Selank: The Natural Xanax, Anxiolytic Peptide

Selank is a synthetic peptide derived from the human peptide tuftsin, a tetrapetide associated with the immune system. The use of selank has been shown to help improve learning, memory, cognition, depression, and energy in patients. In the human body, selank acts as a stable neuropsychotropic, antidepressant, and antistress to help reduce anxiety and relieve aggression. Through allosteric modulation of GABA receptors, Selank regulates communication between brain cells to help influence processes involved in nootropic action and stimulation of mental activity.

Why Would I Want to Use Selank?

In clinical trials, Selank has been shown to be useful for the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder. Although its actions are similar to those of tranquilizers or traditional anxiety treatments, such as xanax and benzodiazepines, it has no sedating or negative cognitive side effects and has no associated addiction or withdrawal problems.
