9-Me-BC  Powder

9-Methyl-β-carboline is a research chemical that has shown a lot of Nootropic properties. It is a methylated derivative of β carboline with the molecular formula C12H10N2.

Beta-Carbolines (BCs) is derived from tryptophan and its derivatives forming endogenously in mammals and humans. They are present in the human brain, cerebrospinal fluid, and plasma.

The chemical is part of the beta-carboline family and has been shown to have a lot of potent dopaminergic properties in various studies.

In some in vitro studies, 9-Methyl-β-carboline was also shown to induce elevated levels of hippocampal dopamine. This led to improved spatial learning performance. This is actually the main reason why 9-Methyl-β-carboline is seen as a potentially effective Nootropic.

But that is not all. Some studies have also shown that 9-Methyl-β-carboline may trigger the restoration of tyrosine hydroxylase expressing neurons that may in turn help to prevent the pathogenesis of degenerative brain disorders such as Parkinson.

Also, 9-Me-BC, identified as an inhibitor of both monoamine oxidase A and monoamine oxidase B, has been suggested for further exploration in the context of Parkinson’s disease treatment.
