The benefits of noopept are not fully studied in humans, but animals show tremendous promise. Noopept is incredibly fast-acting compared with similar smart drugs like piracetam. It can cross the blood-brain barrier well and is considered even faster than potent racetams like aniracetam and oxiracetam.
Noopept increases BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), which great improves cognitive performance. This nootropic is great for usage in cognitive decline. For people with physical or chemical trauma of the brain, noopept can also halt and in some cases reverse neuro degeneration. Noopept also has a restorative effect on oxidative stress, one of the most harmful causes of aging.
The manufacturer of noopept recommends taking dosages ranging from 10 – 30mg for cognitive deficiency, but for enhancement the optimal dose is unknown. Sublingual noopept is absorbed better, which suggests lower dosages can prove effective for cognitive enhancement.
Mode of Action
Noopept has many modes of action. One is antioxidation, which protects neurons from apoptosis. Another mechanism of action includes inhibiting glutamate neurotoxicity (which often leads to degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s disease). The most important mode of action is on neuroplasticity, which improves learning and memory.
Some noopept side effects are seen at higher doses because of the potency. However, animal studies show no toxicity in doses of 10mg/kg. A human equivalent could be as high as 170 mg for a 155 pound individual.
