When someone who hasn’t yet used nootropics hears about them for the first time, such a person raises the question of serious unwanted effects – body tension, anxiety and fear of overdose. Of course, these are all prejudicial assumptions based on something they heard somewhere or from someone who is also poorly informed. However, there are rare cases when a name of a specific nootropic receives a positive treatment by both uninformed and experienced nootropic community because of the reduced adverse effects.
One of those compounds is Bromantane. If you’re wondering why then it’s probably because it gets accepted by the users more gracefully and quicker due to its stimulant and anxiolytic effects in the body.
Bromantane is Russia’s pharmaceutical product originally called Ladasten (Ладастен).
Experienced nootropic users have graced Bromantane with more and more attention in the last few years, which means that beginners have the biggest chance of starting out with this supplement. It’s not addictive and it gives more endurance towards mental fatigue. That’s the most appealing factor for those interested in nootropics.
During the research related to petroleum solutions, there was an amazing discovery of adamantane back in 1993. This created completely new chemistry field which was dedicated to the further research of polyhedral organic compounds and its synthesis. After deeper analysis and research trials for an antiviral substance that could cure Influenza, Amantadine popped out as a possible treatment for viruses. I must be sounding like a broken record, but after further research, the scientists discovered that adamantine itself and its derivatives behaved as dopamine receptors and were classified as stimulants.
These helped a lot in the past in treating early stages of Parkinson’s.
Besides being a stimulant, it’s widely used to treat exhaustion, depression, neurosis, anhedonia, and neurasthenia. Interestingly, anhedonia enables you to feel pleasure, and therefore taking Bromantane is recommended in order to fix that.
Mechanism of Action
Just after the breakthrough in the research of adamantine,
huge funding supported the development of pharmaceutical product made out of this chemical. Bromantane exploded throughout the Russian pharmaceutical market back in the 80s as a unique stimulant drug at that time.
Presently, the nootropic nature of Bromantane is the subject of a constant dispute among users on various forums like Reddit and others. I personally think that it does fall under nootropic category. Bromantane’s chemical effect on the human organism stimulates serotonin and dopamine, but at the same time is being put in a category of low addiction potential.
Substances like Bromantane act like anxiolytics, adaptogens, and stimulants. The tolerance threshold is very low, which means the long-term and regular use guarantee the benefits of the described chemical influence.
The results of Bromantane’s pharmacological action are amazing:
Resistance to overheating
Restoration and increase of mental and physical working capacity
Halting of the development of fatigue processes
Improves learning processes and coordination of movements
Improves inotropic action without heart chronotropic function or arterial pressure
The complex version of a mechanism of bromantane action is all about working to increase the movement of the lower centers of the central nervous system which consists of the hippocampus, the reticular nuclei of the operculum and the hypothalamic nuclei.
The enhancement of body immunity after a single dose of by increasing the level of B-cells and circulating immune complex in the bloodstream is the result of the bromantane pharmacological effect.
Bromantane is able to impact on the detoxification of liver functions and reduction of hypnotic action of thiopental sodium because it stimulates synthesis of cytochrome P-450.
Price And Comparisons
I honestly don’t know why are users complaining about the price. Ordering Ladasten online cost about 39 euros or 46 US dollars, and it contains enough daily doses of up to 50 mg to last for 20 days.
Bromantane’s one of those nootropics that will boost both your physical and mental abilities. The difference between classic psychostimulants and Ladasten is in the non-exhaustive cycle of it. There’s no oxygen consumption nor any body heat. Take that along with the lack of side effects and you got yourself a perfect little gem.
The list of benefits:
Increase of the immune system
Decreased levels of anxiety
Reduction of overheating and protection against hyperthermia
Almost non-existent side effects
Non-addictive with no withdrawal symptoms
Increase in muscle strength
Increase in memory and learning
What’s the right dosage for Bromantane?
It’s the same advice like with any other nootropic, take it slow and see what’s your endurance if any. Since they are already making 25 mg pills, take one a day for starters. The threshold where the effects kick in is lower than 10 mg. See where it takes you. If you don’t feel anything you can take it up to 50 mg, which is the normal daily dose.
Longtime users usually have these habits:
Take one pill (50 mg) in the morning
If you’re raising the dose, then you can do one capsule after breakfast and the other one in the afternoon. That’s the 100 mg/day variant.
A daily dose of 100 mg or two pills should last for two to four weeks tops.
I also have to answer the concern of taking Bromantane in the workplace. If I were you, I would keep this on a low-key. Employers in 99% of the time frown upon using stimulants during working hours. However, there are some jobs where you have work late shifts or pull a double shift, then it’s expected from you to take something to boost your performance. Some drink Red Bull, you can pop a Bromantane.
As far as experiences go, we’ve scoured the internet looking for all kinds of experiences that might help you decide if this is a nootropic worth trying.
This section should be understood as a list of pointers made out of various personal experiences, but the fact is that you should listen to your own body for response.
There’s this guy from Reddit can’t remember his name, but for the sake of argument let’s call him Superman. This guy has been taking 100 mg of Bromantane every day for a month without any adverse effects. Superman felt what usually happens – boost in stamina, confidence, and motivation. He earned this kind of nickname because on top of 100 mg/day in a 30-day cycle, he took a custom stack made out of the variety of God knows which other nootropics and again, without any side effects. My personal recommendation for this kind of supplementation is – don’t try this at home.
The large number of various feedbacks were “clean” as far as the side effects go. Most users took 50 mg/day and felt calm, euphorically happy and eager for physical activities. They didn’t need much sleep, social interactions were extremely pleasant. One guy even spent 3 hours helping his colleague with his report – this guy obviously doesn’t care if he gets busted using this while on the job.
There was this girl that struggled with depression. She said she took Bromantane for the period of two weeks and felt amazing. On one hand, she managed to force out depressive thoughts and feelings, on the other, she gained more mental energy and improved her libido. Everything was fine at first, but after she felt a small headache and little bit weak.
Let’s take a look at the experiences with bromantane coming from the users that felt nothing.
One user shared his experience on Reddit, where he explained how he fell asleep just an hour after popping one pill. That happened at first. After that, he started taking 100mg a day for a month and described feeling motivated and happy. He had some troubles with the waves of anxiety from before which stopped as soon as he started taking Bromantane, and additionally improved his ability to focus for extended periods of time.
