Picamilon | Miracle Compound

The Russians have come up with a winner. The scientists behind the Iron Curtain wanted to develop a drug that could go into the brain, but most drugs do not. So they hooked the drug up with niacin, a B-vitamin that passes the blood-brain barrier. The drug they hooked up was gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA is a neurotransmitter that inhibits nerve impulses. Taking picamilon does not cause lethargy or impede muscle tone; however, it does calm an individual and lead to increased brain efficiency and increased cerebral vasodilation and blood flow. The investigators said:
Picamilon . . . was shown to induce a significant increase of cerebral blood flow in conscious cats.
Basically this is good news. Apparently the substance also prevents and alleviated headaches.
