Noopept is a nootropic that has cognitive improvement and neuroprotective properties. It has effects and mechanisms of actions that are comparable to those of Piracetam, although Noopept has a different chemical structure. But, these two drugs differ in terms of speed of action and strength. Noopept tends to work faster and last longer than Piracetam. Noopept has both anti-anxiety and psychostimulant properties. Since its introduction in Russia in the mid-1990s, the drug has been used as a treatment for some cognitive disorders like cerebral vascular insufficiency, traumatic brain injury, and age-related cognitive decline. Most users reported feeling the effect of the drug one hour after ingesting it. Keep reading to find out more about the benefits of the drugs:
Improved Memory and Learning
Noopept is known for being a brain booster and a memory enhancer. It improves learning ability and memory by acting on all stages of information processing. The majority of studies on the effects of the drug have been done on models of brain damage and cognitive decline. In Russia, it has been used to successfully treat cognitive disorders such as alcohol-related brain damage, age-related neurodegeneration, and organic brain disease.
Studies in animals reveal that Noopept can lower anxiety levels and mild cognitive disorders in humans. This is based on the administration of 10 mg of the drug two times every day which results in the reduction of anxiety.
These properties make Noopept effective at protecting the brain from various impairments. As a potent antioxidant, the drug protects cells against oxidative damage from free radicals. Oxidative damage is associated with age-related cognitive decline and Alzheimer’s disease.
Moreover, the drug is an anti-inflammatory agent that may further protect and improve cognition. Inflammation is associated with short-term memory, loss of spatial reasoning, as well as verbal learning and memory. It also protects and promotes neurological health by enhancing the flow of blood to the brain and inhibiting neurotoxicity due to excess glutamate and calcium.
Noopept is a famous nootropic with a growing number of users. Its standard dosage which is 100 mg makes it affordable and easy to use. It can work even better when used with other nootropics. The majority of its side effects are associated with high doses and the likelihood of developing tolerance can be easily managed through cycling. Noopept is not usually available for purchase at brick-and-mortar stores. Those who are planning to purchase the drug should order it online.
