Semax is a synthetic peptide, acting as an analog of adrenocorticotropic hormone. The adrenocorticotropic hormone regulates many processes related to stress and bodily rhythm. When administered, semax has been found to increase levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor, or BDNF. Through this increase in BDNF, it is theorized that semax optimizes cognitive and hormonal functioning.
Multiple studies have been carried out to determine the effects and benefits of semax. One study on animals saw a 40% increase in BDNF levels. In this experiment, semax was used regularly and intranasally. This led researchers to the conclusion that semax modulates levels of BDNF in the hippocampus. Another study looked into the effects of semax on the serotonin and dopamine systems within the brain. Subjects were injected with semax, and notable increases in activity were observed.
