Noopept is considered a part of racetam family. It boosts cognitive function and also causes psycho- stimulation. A synthetic nootropic molecule, N-phenyl acetyl-L-prolyl glycine ethyl ester is responsible for all the nootropic effects, a brand name for which is Noopept.
As compared to racetam, it is several times more efficient, and taken in small doses. It can significantly help people suffering from cognitive or physical trauma.
Noopept can also improve the motivation levels for some, but for others, it may have no effect at all. Noopept can also reduce oxidative stress. Therefore, it is can also help improve overall brain function. It can help people who have Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and other age-related memory dysfunction. It can also revert the memory loss due to hypoxia, i.e. when oxygen supply to the brain is depleted. Many short-term, as well as long-term users, report benefits related to memory, alertness, concentration, learning abilities, focus, brain fog, mood enhancement, improved creativity, reduced anxiety and other brain functions.
Noopept has a low toxicity level, and is tolerated by almost everyone. Although Noopept is widely reported to have therapeutic effects for many people, it cannot precisely be determined how effective it can prove for a particular person. It all varies depending on lifestyle, current cognitive abilities, diet, emotional stress and many other factors.
Benefits & Effects
How It Works
Within 15 minutes, it reaches the brain in significant concentrations and starts showing its effects. This drug also has a very high bioavailability which means it is readily available for absorption and most of it will come into circulation.
Noopept reacts to the AMPA receptor sites in the brain. It prevents the breakdown of Glutamate, which is a neurotransmitter. This prevention of breaking down of glutamates provides the cognitive benefits like reduced brain fog, improved concentration, etc. Binding of Noopept to AMPA receptors allow the glutamates move freely between the brain cells and improves brain plasticity and improves its function.
Noopept is known to increase alpha-wave function in almost all tested brain regions. In the right cortex and hippocampus, it increases the beta-1 wave function and decreases the delta function. Its overall effect on the brain is an improvement in the cognitive function.
Noopept can cause nausea to many people who take large doses or use it longer than the recommended duration. Generally, it does not cause any gastrointestinal issue as it is consumed in minuscule amount.
It may increase irritability in some people. People suffering from sleep disorders were particularly prone to the side effects of irritability as Noopept is a psychostimulant. Inability to sleep may increase irritability further in individuals who consume Noopept.
Some people may also be allergic to this Noopept. Therefore, it is important, to begin taking small doses and increase doses gradually after ensuring that you are not allergic to it.
People who are suffering from hypertension need to consult their doctor before using this drug. Their body might not react well to the stimulation caused by this drug.
Pregnant and Lactating Women
Pregnant and Lactating Women should avoid consuming Noopept. In case they feel a strong need, they should consult their doctor first.
Noopept is available in the powder as well as tablet form. Recommended dosage for Noopept is up to 10-30mg per day, in one dose or two doses. The cycle completes on the 56th day, and after that, it must be stopped to reduce the tolerance developed by the body.
As Noopept is a highly potent drug, you must begin with the small doses of 5mg and then increase them slowly. You can increase them to 10mg dose twice per day within a week, and this is the recommended dosage for long term use. It is important to remember that you must never take a dose greater than 60 mg in a day. It can cause over stimulation of Glutamate receptors and cause side effects such as nausea, irritability, and hyper-alertness.
