Methylene Blue, the Cognitive and Mitochondrial enhancer. With years of research, Methylene Blue has shown promise to delay cellular aging and to enhance key mitochondrial biochemical pathways. At BioCure, we have effectively used it as a Nootropic…improving brain function and memory retention.
In 1891, German physician and noble prize recipient Paul Ehrlich pioneered the use of methylene blue in the treatment of malaria. Ehrlich discovered that Methylene Blue would quickly concentrate in the brain and selectively target diseased tissue in the body.
At low doses, Methylene Blue has been shown to protect the brain from disease by acting as an electron-donor to the mitochondria which increases ATP production. ATP is the currency of life and the energy that powers humans. If our production of ATP declines, physical and mental performance declines. Even healthy individuals can benefit from a boost in ATP production. Methylene blue is also able to increase the amount of NAD+ produced by the mitochondria.
