Description

Methylene Blue is a powerful antioxidant, critical for health.

Antioxidants help neutralize the effects of stress and aging. They’re necessary for a healthy brain, nerves and muscles (including heart).

A deficit may cause rapid aging, emotional instability, loss of mental power.

The antioxidant properties of Methylene Blue support:

  • Helps calm nerves and stress
  • May improve sleep and energy
  • May improve immunity
  • May boost brain functions, mental alertness and good moods
  • Helps regulate homocysteine levels
  • Plays a role in neurological activity
  • Enhances growth and repair of all cells
  • Aids in metabolism of carbohydrates and fats
  • May improve protein synthesis
  • Helps protect against nerve damage
  • Especially great for vegetarians who are often deficient..

Keep on-hand for any time you need a mood and/or energy lift.

Methylene Blue is a strong dye that has been used in the past to treat malaria, urinary tract infections, and a rare blood condition called methemoglobinemia.

Due to the vast range of applications, Methylene Blue has earned the title of “Universal Supplement”.

See ‘Scientific References’ tab for the many studies on Methylene Blue.

Symptoms Associated with Antioxidant Deficiency
Abnormal gait, allergies, bone loss, chronic fatigue, constipation, very low moods, digestive disorders, dizziness, drowsiness, enlargement of the liver, eye disorders, hallucinations, headaches (including migraines), inflammation of the tongue, irritability, labored breathing, memory loss, moodiness, nervousness, neurological damage, palpitations, low blood hemoglobin, ringing in the ears, and spinal cord degeneration.

Antioxidant Properties
Methylene blue acts as an antioxidant, helping to neutralize harmful free radicals in the body that can cause cellular damage and contribute to various diseases. Studies suggest this may include inhibiting viral infections.

Improves Mitochondrial Function
Methylene blue may enhance mitochondrial function, potentially leading to increased energy production within cells.

Neuroprotective Effects
Methylene blue has shown promise in protecting against neurodegenerative symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s by reducing oxidative stress and preserving neuronal function.

Enhances Cognitive Function
Some studies suggest that methylene blue supplementation may improve cognitive function, including memory and attention, possibly by increasing cerebral blood flow and supporting neuronal health.

Potential Anti-aging Effects
Due to its antioxidant properties and effects on mitochondrial function, methylene blue may have anti-aging effects, helping to reduce age-related decline in cellular function and overall health.

Antimicrobial Activity
Methylene blue exhibits antimicrobial properties and has been used in the treatment of certain infections.

Treatment for Methemoglobinemia
Methylene blue is a common treatment for methemoglobinemia, a condition in which the blood contains an abnormal amount of methemoglobin, reducing its ability to carry oxygen. Methylene blue helps convert methemoglobin back to normal hemoglobin, restoring oxygen-carrying capacity.

Potential for Tumor Inhibition
Some research suggests that Methylene Blue may have the ability to inhibit tumor growth and induce apoptosis.

Mood Enhancement
There is evidence to suggest that Methylene Blue may have mood-enhancing effects, possibly by increasing serotonin levels in the brain.
