How To Increase Life Expectancy With Deprenyl

Popularly known as Selegiline and Cyprenil, depreny citrate is selective monoamine oxidase (MAO) B inhibitor that has been used for many years for alzhiemer's disease treatment and parkinson's disease treatment for its ability to protect brain and nerve cells against damage. Deprenyl is thus well known for its function to improve brain function and enhance mental performance.

Since deprenyl protects cells of the brain and nerves from oxidative damage and stress, this amazing mind drug can not only improve brain function but also increase the life expectancy of an individual consuming deprenyl on a regular basis as an anti ageing agent. In fact other than its basic use to treat alzhiemer's disease, parkinson's disease, and as anti depressant medicine, its ability to increase the life span of an individual is one of deprenyl's most amazing and versatile benefits.

While the exact way deprenyl works on the mind and body to increase the life span and improve mental performance is still not known, deprenyl being a MAO-B inhibitor works to increase the dopamine levels in the brain, which in turn are related to combating oxidative stress which is implicated as a common causative factor in neurodegenerative diseases and ageing.

It has been clinically proven that a consistent use of deprenyl has increased the life expectancy of rats by as much as 20% in many of the clinical trials. This is mainly attributed to its potential to offer protection against DNA damage and oxidative stress by hydroxyl and peroxyl radical trapping; and against excitotoxic damage from glutamate. In addition, selegiline stimulates the release of superoxide dismutase (SOD). SOD is a key enzyme which helps to quench the production of damaging free-radicals.

Apart from increasing the life span of individuals deprenyl can also help people suffering from senile dementia and other ageing and stress related disorders such as parkinson's disease, depression, loss of libido and otherwise healthy individuals suffering from a general loss of drive and interest in day to day activities.

While the dosage for deprenyl citrate depends on particular individual condition, a dosage of around 2.5mg to 5mg once, twice or three times a week, is recommended for people taking this brain power supplement as an anti ageing medicine to increase life expectancy. Deprenyl is a completely safe medicine with no known major side effects. Mild adverse effects, however, include headaches, insomnia, nausea and stomach upset.
