Selank is an anti-anxiety compound that improves learning and increases energy without side effects or the risk of addiction.
Selank is small and only a fraction of the size of most naturally occurring proteins. It was derived by combining the sequence of a peptide called tuftsin with another sequence that improves its stability. Tuftsin is naturally occurring and makes up one part of IgG (an antibody)
Selank stabilizes enkephalins in the blood. Enkephalins are natural peptides in the body that reduce stress
However, some mice did not demonstrate the enkephalin stabilization following dosing with Selank and did not benefit from its anti-anxiety effect.
In cells, Selank binds to GABA receptors. Most compounds that bind to GABA receptors cause a sedative effect. In mice treated with Selank, researchers discovered more activity in inhibitory neurons, which rely on GABA. This resulted in less brain activity
