What is Noopept?
Noopept is the common name for N-Phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester, a powerful nootropic that often draws comparisons to Piracetam due to its similar benefits on the brain. What many don’t realize is that Noopept was actually designed to be an upgraded version of Piracetam since Piracetam requires high doses and its effectiveness is limited on various populations of people. Developed in 1996, Noopept is up to 1000 times more potent that Piracetram. The effects of Noopept are similar to Piracetam in that they are both water-soluble and enhance cognition. They also both are able to improve memory, help with problem solving, and repair damage to the brain. They help create proteins that your brain requires for growing and healing neurons. The difference between the two nootropics is that Noopept also can help with memory retention and recall. In addition to its cognitive enhancements, Noopept also can positively affect anxiety and has anti oxidant elements as well. This is due to the fact that Noopept turns to cyclprolylglycine (CPG), a natural occurring chemical in the brain that affects mental wellness. However, while Piracetam is a descendant of the Racetam family, Noopept has a different chemical structure and is not technically considered a Racetam. With that being said, the biggest difference between the two nootropics is that Noopept is much more potent than Piracetam and fairly cheap, making it one of the most popular nootropics for neurohackers .

What is the proper Noopept dosage?If you’re wondering how much noopept to take, the most commonly recommended oral dose of Noopept is 10-30mg per day. To get to this daily total, typically a dose of 5-15mg is taken twice a day. Keep in mind that if you decide to take Noopept before bed, you may experience vivid dreams or experience difficulty falling asleep so its usually consumed after a regular meal.
How to take NoopeptIt is recommended that you only take noopept on a 1.5 to 3 month cycle. After taking Noopept for 3 months, stop use for a minimum of 1 month then repeat the 1.5 to 3 month cycle. This will help to prevent user from forming a Noopept tolerance.
Noopept capsulesThe standard Noopept dose is 10mg, consumed two times per day, each after a meal. However, if this isn’t providing the desired effects, up to 30mg for your daily total can be consumed. Some have reported taking Noopept sublingual, meaning taking it under the tongue in order to get the substance in to the bloodstream more quickly. This is typically done by taking a pill and letting it sit under the tongue until it dissolves. We do not recommend doing this. There isn’t much point it taking Noopept under the tongue to speed up its effectiveness because Noopept is already one of the fastest acting nootropics out there. People usually feel effects within approximately 10-15 minutes of ingestion. If you do decide to take Noopept sublingually, it is highly recommended that you first consult a physician.
Noopept powderNoopept powder has the same standard dose of 10mg, consumed twice per day. Like the capsules it is recommended that you consume the powder after a meal. Up to 30 mg (for your daily total) can be consumed in order to achieve your desired results. In order to make Noopept safety a main priority, please keep in mind that snorting noopept is not how noopept powder is meant to be consumed and may cause serious side effects. Do NOT snort noopept powder, it can be very dangerous.
Noopept nasal sprayThe Noopept spray requires a smaller daily dose (3mg). This is roughly the equivalent of 13mg of Noopept when consumed orally. Each nasal spray is approximately 1.5mg so it requires 2 sprays to hit your approximate daily dose. However, before using the Noopept nasal spray it is important to know that Noopept was not created to be ingested in this manner so please use at your own risk.
Noopept side effectsTypically if a user consistently consumes the recommended dose of 10-30mg of Noopept per day, most people will not experience adverse side effects. However, side effects have been reported. Unfortunately Noopept hasn’t been well-studied and therefore doesn’t provide sufficient data to adequately provide all the various side effects a user might experience. Because of this, it is highly recommended that you consult with your physician before taking Noopept. With that being side, some of the side effects of Noopept that have been reported. Users have reported experiencing the following symptoms:
- Increased or decreased appetite
- Unable to think clearly
Is Noopept Safe?It is highly recommended that you consult with a physician before consuming Noopept. It is possible that Noopept conflicts with your current prescriptions, causing adverse side effects. In addition, Noopept’s mechanism of action isn’t fully understood and sufficient studies have not been conducted for the effects of Noopept on the brain long-term. With that being said, if you take the recommended dosage most people have not reported experiencing adverse side effects. However, we recommend that you first read the list of side effects (listed above) in order to make a educated decision about whether or not you want to give Noopept a try. Please note that this isn’t a complete comprehensive list.
Noopept benefitsBefore stating these benefits, it is important to be aware that while Noopept may provide some benefits in the short-term, people have actually reported a cognitive decline in the long-term. Make sure you have done your research before taking Noopept. Some reported benefits of Noopept include:
- Improved memory – Noopept improves alpha brain wave function which in turn, improves memory function.
- Enhanced mental clarity – Noopept studies have shown that the nootropic can help make the neuron receptors more sensitive and reactive.
- Reduced stress levels – Benzodiazepine receptors in the hippocampus correspond directly to your stress levels. Noopept can affect the hippocampus in order to reduce stress.
- Boosted Focus – While studies are limited, improved focus can most likely linked to the regulation of acetylcholine and brain waves.
- May help with Alzheimer’s – Studies are lacking but Noopept hase been claimed to help protect neurons and prevent cell death which happens to be one of the main causes of Alzehimer’s.
