Picamilon | Nootropic and Help for Diabetes

While researching a new nootropic (smart drug) I came across the intriguing finding that the substance also offers promise in fighting diabetes. Of course the best treatment for type 2 diabetes is cutting out the carbs and doing exercise. But as the following abstract indicates, there is evidence that picamilon can fight diabetic neuropathy (nerve damage resulting from decreased blood flow to nerves), presumably through increased vasodilation. It may also prevent neuropathy from occurring or advancing. Picamilon is a relatively safe substance that has a whole host of ancillary benefits, including mood boosting through GABA-ergic action, reducing stress, reducing anxiety, and other positive effects. (Testimonials.) Additional information is available from the Life Extension site: How And Why Picamilon Works (July 1997)(Accessed Aug 29, 2008). Researchers concluded: "The findings confirm the important role of picamilon and aldose reductase inhibitors in the prevention and treatment of diabetic neuropathy." In my opinion, this is a strong and promising lead toward relatively side-effect-free treatment for this increasingly prevalent condition.
