What is Noopept? It is a Russian-manufactured nootropic that is made from the racetam family of drugs. It is known for its cognitive enhancing properties. Noopept is prescribed in Russia and many other Eastern European countries.
Why choose Noopept?
Noopept is believed to be as much 1,000 stronger than Piracetam, its racetam predecessor, which is why you need a lower dose than almost all other nootropic drugs. Clinical trials in Russia have shown that Noopept is both a nootropic and a neuroprotector agent. In fact one study showed that it improves the cognitive functions of stroke patients after two months of use.
Here are more benefits of Noopept
Noopept is known to have all of the cognitive enhancing properties that are associated with other nootropics such as:
· Improved memory
· Improved learning
· Better attention
However, it also has some more unique benefits that are not easily associated with other nootropics including
· It acts as a psychostimulant
· It has significant neuroprotective effects
· Reduces anxiety and stress levels
· Noopept also has antioxidant properties that helps the brain to get rid of toxins caused oxidation. It eliminates the toxins by increasing oxygen circulation in the brain
· It enhances metabolism in the brain to increase energy produced to be utilized in cognitive tasks
There isn’t much information about its history and origin but it is believed to have been made in a Russian lab in 2004. Scientist just stumbled on it while working in the Lekka lab on Pramiracetam prototype, another drug from the racetam family. They made some modifications on it and then came up with what is now is known as Noopept. The manufacturing company got a patent in 2006 before it was released to the public as a dietary supplement. Most people take Noopept subliqually to be absorbed faster into the bloodstream but the powder doesn’t taste great in the mouth. That is why some prefer Noopept capsules to avoid the bitter aftertaste.
