Description

General description

Oleamide is a lipid or a brain fatty acid, that is found in the CSF (cerebrospinal fluid). It is originally obtained from the cerebrospinal fluid of cats, that are sleep-deprived.

Application

Oleamide has been used as a supplement in glucose and galactose media to prevent the rescue of galactose-induced Leigh syndrome (LS).

Packaging

100, 500 mg in poly bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Oleamide has the ability to stimulate sleep. It possess several properties, like cannabinoid-like activity. Oleamide can also disable the communication, facilitated by gap junction between rat glial cells.

Sleep-inducing brain lipid, which allosterically modulates GABAA receptors and potentiates 5-HT7 serotonin receptor responses. Selective endogenous agonist of rat and human CB1 cannabinoid receptor.
