Please note: We do not encourage intake of Noopept. This chemical is intended for research purposes only. Any side effects or adverse events with the intake of this nootropic agent are the sole responsibility of the user.

The discovery of piracetam paved the way for many researches on drugs that can improve one’s cognitive abilities without causing any serious side effects. Following piracetam, numerous nootropic agents including noopept were identified. Despite the unprecedented discovery of other nootropic agents, noopept remains to be very popular due to potency and effectiveness.

The overwhelming positive feedbacks and raves regarding this supplement make it one of the “hall of famers” when it comes to nootropic compounds. People across the globe are fast to include it on their daily health and wellness regimen after learning its potency.

You may be very excited by now to use noopept, however, we suggest that you learn more about it. Hence, in this report, we will give light on the physical properties of noopept. We will try to answer most of your questions regarding this novel nootropic drug.


Drug classification of noopept

Noopept has been classified as a nootropic drug. It is primarily used as a neuroprotective drug particularly in Russia and its neighboring countries.


Chemical name of noopept

N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester


Where does noopept comes from?

Similar to most nootropic drugs such as adrafinil and piracetam, noopept is a synthetic compound that can only be developed from laboratories. It was first synthesized in Russia and 1996. Noopept cannot be derived from any dietary source; hence, if you are interested in you must take it as a supplement.


What is the structure of noopept?

Despite not having the same 2-oxo-pyrollidine nucleus as the rest of drugs under the racetam class, it is classified as one because of its psychostimulatory, anxiolytic and cognitive promoting effects. Noopept is a water soluble drug having a proline (cycloprolyglycine) and a dipeptide structure. It is also considered as a dipeptide conjugate of its predecessor, piracetam.


What does noopept looks and taste like?

If you want to ensure that you are able to buy authentic noopept powder, you can do so through determining its physical properties. Firstly, noopept powder is white or colorless rather. Users report that it tastes like “a very bitter grapefruit.” Nonetheless, the taste is tolerable, as you will only need to take a pinch. 10 to 30 mgs of noopept per day is enough for you to experience its benefits. Noopept is available as an injectable, powder form and/or capsules/tablets.


How is noopept metabolized in the body?

Noopept is rapidly absorbed and metabolized in the body minutes after ingestion. The kinetics of its metabolites is still unknown nonetheless, researches have observed that it has the ability to easily cross the blood brain barrier (BBB) resulting to very rapid effects.


How long do the effects of Noopept lasts?

The half-life of noopept is quite short - about 30 to 60 minutes. Although individual reports from users vary widely, this particular half-life is a good estimation. Its short lasting effects are the primary reason why it is important to take divided doses of noopept within a day. For most of you, this makes noopept a less attractive cognitive enhancer. However, bear in mind that the effects (though it will only be just half as effective earlier) will last for another hour after the 60 minutes limit.

In addition, some theorists argue that being metabolized and absorbed as it is (to produce its cognitive enhancing effects), is just the tip of the iceberg. They argue that once noopept is metabolized into other compounds (e.g. cycloprolyglycine), it also produces beneficial cognitive enhancement on the brain making its effects lasting.  This might be the reason why many users report experiencing noopept’s beneficial effects even after its determined half-life.


How should you store noopept powder?

You should store noopeptpowder and tablets/capsules on a water-resistant container.


What is noopept used for?

Noopept is primarily used for its purported beneficial effects on cognitive enhancement. A number of studies have shown that noopept has the ability to improve immediate recall, increase learning capacity and enhance overall mental capability. The intensity of these beneficial effects varies from one individual to another. Some people experiences increased productivity and motivation while some are able to recall important information vividly. Many users report that noopept is very helpful in increasing their attention span, focus and concentration. Moreover, it is said to be quite effective in improving linguistic processing and verbal fluency - a very important effect for those who are always dealing on social settings.


Other than the abovementioned short-term effects, there are numerous potential long-term effects that can be gleaned from noopept use. Noopept is thought to have a strong affinity on the latter stages of memory consolidation and retrieval. It helps enable the development of long-term memory which is considered more important than short-term memory.

Noopept is also acts similarly to an antioxidant. It rids your brain from unwanted toxins (e.g. calcium). It also prevents the apoptosis (programmed cell death) of your brain cells while protects it from poisons that can otherwise contribute to the deterioration of your brain health. Some studies have even shown that noopept has potent ability to reverse the damage that has been done to the brain due to excessive intake of alcohol.

Lastly, noopept is able to increase the levels of brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) and nerve growth factor (NGF) – both of which are critical in the survival and growth of some neurons as well as on the development of new synapses and neurons. The activities of BDNF and NGF are critical in the development of long-term memory, cognitive health and general intelligence. Furthermore, noopept has the ability to improve the communication between the hemispheres of your brain. These benefits make noopept an excellent addition on your daily health and wellness regimen.



Despite these potential beneficial effects, it is critical that you consult your doctor before taking any nootropic agent or supplements. Special precautions should be considered if you are suffering certain health condition, lactating or pregnant.
