Selank is a 7 amino acid synthetic analogue of the naturally occurring tetrapeptide ‘tuftsin’1. Selank is considered to be a nootropic substance – something that improves one or more aspects of cognitive function, like memory, motivation, and attention2. Selank acts as a regulator of serotonin and monoamine neurotransmitters, which is typical of many anti-anxiety medications – something Selank was first developed to be3. With further research, Selank was found to increase mental focus and calmness4 in animal test subjects, along with having positive anxiolytic and anti-depressant properties.
Selank shows great potential as an agent to reduce anxiety side effects5 in patients undergoing necessary steroidal or androgenic treatments for conditions like muscular dystrophy. Animal trials have demonstrated that Selank alleviates symptoms of anxiety, of excess excitability, and of anhedonia6 – the inability to feel pleasure – replacing them with the nootropic effects of mental alertness, motivation, and a sense of general well being. It has been suggested that this combination of therapeutic action would be desirable to apply in the recovery treatment of drug users, who may experience anxiety, depression, and anhedonia as well7.
Many anti-anxiety or anti-depressant drugs, like benzodiazapines, for example, have a sedative effect8. Animal trials with Selank have demonstrated that this agent is not only effective in stabilizing mood and avoiding anxiety, but also improves motivation, reduces mental fatigue, and leads to a sense of mental sharpness. Also unlike most anti-anxiety or anti-depressant drugs, Selank is reported to have no tendency of inducing dependence or withdrawal symptoms9.
