Description of active components Melanin (eumelanin)
The name from the Greek word melas – black. This is the collective name for black and brown pigments that determine the color of the skin and their derivatives (hair, feathers, scales, cuticles, fruit peels, etc.). Melanin is also found in internal organs, including the substantia nigra of the brain. The peculiarities of melanins make it possible to put them on a par with such vital elements of all living things as proteins and DNA. Not every melanin is capable of exerting any physiological effect on a foreign organism. Only eumelanin, which is synthesized naturally in some microorganisms, can do this. The structure of melanin is very complex, it is an amorphous mixture of polymer compounds. Eumelanin is a high molecular weight biopolymer of irregular structure belonging to the class of condensed phenolic compounds that cause the dark color of the insect cover, human hair, the cell wall of fungi, plants and microorganisms. Melanin molecules contain very high concentrations of stable free radicals, which act as traps for labile free radicals that constantly arise during pathological processes in the cells of the body. Eumelanin is a powerful antioxidant, adaptogen, helps to reduce dystrophic and destructive changes in internal organs, including the liver, hypothalamus, thyroid gland, adrenal glands. It has a high antiulcer activity, prevents malignant transformation. The structural formula of melanin is 5 cell denial, neutralizing the carcinogenic effect of various aggressive environmental factors. Soluble forms of melanin can perform a transport function, deliver nutrients to tissues. Eumelanin is involved in the elimination of any stress effect that disrupts cellular balance. Melanin of PCC X-1 has the ability to reversibly oxidize and recover due to its stable free radical state. Consequently, it is able to bind labile free radicals *, which are formed in a living cell as a result of radiation and ultraviolet radiation, thermal burns, chemical poisoning, stress, viral and bactericidal infections. Thus, PCC X-1 is a “free radical trap”.
Melanin effectively influences the key processes of cellular metabolism. It plays the role of a universal protector in conditions when aggressive physical and chemical factors act on the cell, which can lead to mutations and tissue degeneration. Tyrosine Tyrosine is an amino acid that is the main constituent of the most important proteins. It is a direct precursor of thyroid hormones, serves as the basis for the synthesis of thyroxine, adrenaline and glutamic acid, and activates growth hormone. Helps the body to resist emotional stress, helps to improve and maintain a positive emotional state. Promotes the normalization of biochemical processes in the brain.
• is effective in various forms of depression, manifested by apathy, lethargy, indifference;
• helps the body to resist stress, helps to improve mood, maintain a positive emotional state;
• contributes to the normalization of biochemical processes in the brain (in particular, improves the condition in Parkinson’s disease), during the period of getting rid of drug addiction;
• reduces increased appetite, helps to normalize metabolism;
• promotes the production of melanin in the body;
• improves the work of the endocrine system (adrenal glands, pituitary gland, thyroid gland) if their function is impaired. Symptoms of tyrosine deficiency are a decrease in blood pressure, a decrease in peripheral body temperature (cold hands, feet), and heaviness in the calf muscles.
Dopa (L-3,4-dioxyphenylalanine) plays an important role in the functioning of the brain. It is a precursor of catecholamines (mediator in the transmission of nerve signals in the central nervous system). Replenishment of DOPA is necessary for Parkinson’s disease and age-related tremor, helps to strengthen the nervous system in case of its exhaustion and depression.
