The neuropeptide is the synthetic variant of the body-produced peptide tuftsin. Selank belongs to the hexapeptides and has a wide range of effects and application areas. Selank is used in American medicine among others to fight anxiety states and phobias. The effect of Selank closely resembles the effect of the sedative benzodiazepines, but without the anesthetic, ie sedative, side effects. As a substitute for extreme drugs such as anxiolytics and nootropics, Selank can be used to combat depression, generally anxiety and anxiety. In addition, Selank reduces mental stress, which in turn has a positive effect on different areas.
Selank is closely linked to the peptide Semax, also a recently developed peptide. However, the much more efficient variant of these two peptides is said to be selichic.
Selank, because of its above-mentioned great similarity to the body peptides Tuftsin acts as a better Nootropikum. It therefore increases the focus and general concentration capacity, reduces mental fatigue and increases the memory capacity for learning processes. The first perceptible effect is usually the stabilization of the mood, as well as a greatly improved general well-being, furthermore, Selank also helps to a much more powerful immune system.
