What is Noopept Peptide Nootropic Supplement
Noopept is the brand name for N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester. It delivers similar effects to piracetam and provides increased focus, mental clarity and memory.
However, unlike most nootropics that can take hours, days and even months to achieve full effect, the effects of Noopept can be felt within minutes.
This makes Noopept an excellent supplement to take just before any mentally taxing activity.
Benefits and Effects of Noopept
Noopept was first synthesized in 1996. It is a relatively new nootropic and not much research has been done on it. Of all the nootropics, there is very little known about the benefits and effects of Noopept other than a few studies and anecdotal evidence.
Noopept reportedly has the ability to increase memory, learning and attention span, reduce anxiety, improve mood, and has neuro-protective qualities.
One of the most commonly reported benefits of Noopept is its ability to enhance memory and the learning process. But it also seems useful in memory formation and language skills.
Many users have reported greater ability to recall words or remember names of people. Some users have found that when speaking a foreign language, the words seems to flow more easily from them.
While Noopept is often grouped with racetams and often compared to piracetam, it is not a racetam as it lacks the chemical composition that racetams share.
While it does provide similar benefits to piracetam, it is several thousand times more potent.
Even though it’s much more potent than piracetam, its effect is not that much more profound, it just can be taken in much smaller dose than piracetam (10-30mg, compared to 4800mg).
The effects of Noopept are relatively short-lived, so it’s recommended that you start with a minimum dose of 10mg. A dose may be repeated up to three times per day, once in the morning, mid-day and afternoon.
Due to its stimulatory effect, it’s not recommended that a dose be taken in the late evening. Do not take more than 40mg in a 24 hour period.
Noopept is available in pill or powdered form. It is water-soluble, so the powdered form can be taken under the tongue or mixed with a glass of water, juice or other beverage.
Recommended usage from the manufacturer is 1.5 to 3 weeks followed by four weeks off. Some users report a dosing cycle of 56 days on with four days off.
Noopets is considered very safe when taken at recommended levels and has very few side effects. Most of the side effects are only noticeable at high dosages. Minor side effects include: headaches, restlessness, dizziness, and irritability.
Noopept does very well on its own to boost cognitive functions but can be stacked with other nootropics to attain maximum results.
While Noopept delivers similar results as piracetam, they actually work on different receptors in the brain and can be stacked. Try a stack with 10mg Noopept, 2g priacetam, and 300mg Alpha GPC to help prevent a racetam headache.
Noopept also stacks well with aniracetam, piracetam, sulbutiamine, centrophenoxine and Alpha GPC or CDP choline.
