Phenylpiracetam and Noopept are two most powerful cognitive enhancers on the market. Nootropic users often compare and contrast Phenylpiracetam and Noopept because they are known to be more effective than other racetams. Therefore if you are looking for something with more potency than you have experienced before this article will help choose between the two.
Phenylpiracetam is about sixty times more powerful than the original racetam, Piracetam. Structurally Phenylpiracetam is basically Piracetam with a phenyl group added to it. However, there are major differences between them in terms of their effect on the Central Nervous System and mental abilities.
Phenylpiracetam offers a physical and mental increase. Besides improving one’s ability to focus it also increases wakefulness, energy and motivation.
“Its effects on cognitive abilities along with an increase in motor function provide the user with an energizing experience.”
Similar to most racetams, the exact methods of action of Phenylpiracetam are unknown, but there is some evidence to suggest that it works by affecting a number of receptor sites and neurotransmitters.
These include GABA and acetylcholine. As a result, Phenylpiracetam effects are often more defined in comparison to other racetams. A recommended dosage for Phenylpiracetam is 100 mg a day.
“Learning ability is also increased along with an enhancement of mood.”
In recent studies Noopept has been shown to contain properties that are significant to brain plasticity. Noopept should be taken 2-3 times a day with each dosage between 10 mg and 20 mg. You should not exceed 60 mg a day.
Noopept and Phenylpiracetam: Which is better?
If you have an all-night study session (e.g. preparing for an exam or have an important deadline to meet) Phenylpiracetam should be your preferred choice. With Phenylpiracetam you will become mentally and physically energized. This will allow you to achieve whatever task you need to finish, with minimal distraction.
However, an observed problem with Phenylpiracetam is that you may develop tolerance after 2-3 days of continuous use. Thus, it is suggested that you do not use it on a long-term basis. This is why Phenylpiracetam is great during times when you need sudden bursts of physical and mental energy levels.
In contrast, Noopept can be cycled regularly and safely. It is cumulative, and most users indicate that they experience peak effect after 1-2 weeks of use. Noopept can help you improve your attention span and overall study ability by increasing memory and ability to recall information.
In summary, Noopept and Phenylpiracetam are great brain boosters and cognitive enhancers. While both provide increases in cognitive functions, they should be taken dependent on the task that needs to be completed. Phenylpiracetam can be a massive help if you need to study or work over a few very demanding days while keeping a high level of mental sharpness.
Whereas, Noopept can be a great addition to your stack of Nootropics. This will give you an improvement in mental abilities along with a range of other neurological benefits. In addition, due to their high level of potency Noopept and Phenylpiracetam should not be taken at the same time. Finally, both Nootropics should be taken at the recommended dosage level alongside Choline source, such as Alpha GPC, to relieve headaches that may occur because of an increased level of acetylcholine.
