Methylene Blue (also called Methylthioninium Chloride) is a remedy more specifically, for the treatment of malaria; there is over 120 years of research behind this potent nootropic, which makes it quite safe to use.
Methylene Blue crosses the brain-blood barrier with ease and affects numerous processes in the brain:
it modulates ATP production, which basically means more energy for the brain through mitochondria.
both it acts as an electron carrier and donor which helps with mitochondrial respiration, a process crucial for the production of energy in the brain.
it destroys superoxide in the brain and turns it into water. ( Superoxide is a free radical created through the process of respiration) ; it means that Methylene Blue first increases energy production, which may lead to oxidative stress but also prevents the latter from occurring by acting as a potent antioxidant.
