Picamilon is a nootropic supplement that was developed by combining GABA (the key inhibitory neurotransmitter) and niacin (Vitamin B3). By combining these two nutrients into one formula, scientists in the Soviet Union were able to get a range of cognitive enhancing and neuroprotective effects. This GABA-containing vitamin agent reaches the brain easier than two supplements taken separately. It has been used in humans for over 30 years.
Interestingly, Picamilon is a hybrid nootropic as it has tranquilising and mild stimulant properties combined into one compound. Its tranquilising effects without a sedative component prevent the negative effects of emotional stress, whilst stimulatory action provides a boost in mental energy. It also increases the blood flow and circulation in the brain. Some evidence suggests that it may be so effective that it even rehabilitates overstrain working capacity.
Over-excited neural activity in the brain is regulated by GABA, which prevents stress reactions and leads to a calm state. Hence, Picamilon is often used by people who suffer from mood disturbance (irritability), emotional instability and high levels of anxiety. Other positive nootropic effects include an increase in mental well-being, motivation and drive.
Overall, Picamilon is more effective as a mood enhancer and regulator than a cognitive enhancer.
Picamilon works by rapidly crossing the blood-brain barrier where it is split into its two main components - GABA and niacin. GABA is then free to bind to receptors and produce an anxiolytic effect. Niacin decreases cerebral blood vessels tone and causes vasodilation which increases blood flow and circulation in the brain. A combined action of these two nutrients improves the functional state of the brain. Picamilon usually starts to work within an hour and its effects last between 4-6 hours.
The recommended dosage is between 50 -100 mg, taken three times per day. Lower doses (i.e., 50 mg) are used for tranquilizing and mood stabilizing effects, whereas higher doses (i.e. 100 mg) provide a stimulatory effect for increased mental energy and endurance. After prolonged use (i.e., several weeks of daily usage) Picamilon’s effects become cumulative and more evident. The above dosages should be reduced when taken with other nootropics as Picamilon is believed to be synergistic.
Picamilon is generally considered safe with a very low toxicity and no allergenic or carcinogenic properties. However, minimal side effects may include occasional headaches, nausea and dizziness.
