Picamilon was created in Russia in 1969 and is used and approved in several countries for supporting cognitive and emotional health. Picamilon is a novel dietary supplement made by combining the neurotransmitter (brain chemical) GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid) with a form of niacin (vitamin B3) to create a superior form of GABA and a remarkable nootropic (cognitive enhancement) compound.
GABA is one of the main inhibitory neurotransmitters that regulate stress and sleep. People who have low levels (or underactive receptors) are more likely to have poor sleep, stress, problems focusing, and nervousness. Picamilon is more effective than GABA for raising GABA levels in the brain as GABA poorly penetrates the blood brain barrier. Due to its unique formulation, Picamilon can be effective in the following:
- Supporting energy levels
- Reducing the negative effects of stress
- Helping to maintain adequate sleep
- Supporting focus and memory
- Helping to maintain blood pressure already in a normal range
- Supporting visual and auditory health
