Noopept is an artificial member of the racetam family. Noopept is often compared to Piracetam however it is much more potent therefore it is taken at a much lower doses (please see below). This is mainly because of its high level of bioactivity. Therefore, people who use the nootropic must be very careful when utilizing it.
Noopept is very rapidly absorbed and metabolized and demonstrates a stimulatory effect on Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) and Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). Both of these neurotrophins play a key role in cognitive function, including learning, by promoting the growth and survival neurons.
- Heightened memory and clear thinking
- Reduced stress anxiety and depression
- Enhanced mood, focus and perception
How does Noopept work:
Even though the components and structure of Noopept are not yet fully understood, it is presumed that it behaves in the same way as other racetams. This means both, the AMPA and NDMA receptor sites, and their lanes of passage are affected and controlled. The supplement also has a major impact on the Acetylcholine system, along with the brain controlled ACh receptors.
As is the same with other racetams like Aniracetam, an anti-anxiety effect is imposed on the Noopept users. However it should be highlighted that these effects may not always be visible. If you are looking to reduce your level of stress and anxiety Aniracetam would be a more appropriate choice.
Recently there has been much published research that conveys the idea that Noopept might have the potential ability to treat a plethora of cognitive and nerve conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease. A large number of this research is done in Russia, since it was first discovered and developed there.
Tests conducted on laboratory rats show that after administration of the supplement nerve growth factor is increased. This is leading many to believe that there is the potential to reconstruct old or damaged receptor sites and cells.
Benefits and Usage of Noopept:
Although Noopept is relatively expensive compared to other Nootropics it is easily obtainable. The improved effect on cognition as well as reduced symptoms of neurological disease are noted by many users all over the world. Many studies have also shown that Noopept is effective at improving memory and learning.
“Noopept can improve a long-term memory, affect memory formation and recall.”
Noopept has also been known for its ability to increase the levels of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) in laboratory tests. NGF is believed to be the main cause of growth and sustainability in certain types of neurons. By understanding such processed new ideas on how to help suffering patients from diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s.
It is also primarily why there are various scientists now concluding that some Nootropics have positive long lasting effects on the brain after usage. The supplement is also believed to assist in other ways. This includes having the ability to form connections with both hemispheres of the brain.
In other words, it helps improve communication between the neurons, thus leading to an enhancement of creativity, recall, and even memory. Adding to its list, Noopept also behaves as an anti-oxidant, which helps to remove excess toxins and calcium from the body and the brain.
A typical dose of Noopept falls within the range of 10 and 40 mg taken up to three times a day. Some people report to feel powerful effects with even a 10 mg dosage, but others will need a much larger dosage for it to kick in. Because the supplement increases a blood flow and alertness of the body, it is recommended that it is not taken late in the evening as it may prevent from falling asleep.
The dosages provided in this article are intended for a use of the supplement on its own, but many people will try to mix Noopept with other nootropics, such as Alpha GPC, Citicoline, Piracetam and Pramiracetam. While a few have safely experimented with Noopept in high doses, it is potentially dangerous and it is recommended that you not exceed the recommended dosages.
Noopept side effects:
In clinical trials Noopept has been determined to be safe. Noopept has also been seen to be effective and low in toxicity at the recommended dosage. Right now there does not seem to be any risk of overdoses, but the substance is very powerful and should only be taken within the recommended levels. At high doses users may experience various unwanted side effects. Always check with a certified physician or doctor before using Noopept.
