Noopept: How It Helps You to Improve Memory and Be More Productive

Noopept is a peptide-derived nootropic comparable to Piracetam but 1,000 stronger. Clinical evidence reveals it can ease anxiety and the adverse affects caused by anti-tuberculosis drugs. People buy it in hope to improve memory and learning.

It has shown be an effective nootropic to improve learning capacity. For some, it can also improve focus and concentration. This article will teach you how it works and proper dosage so you can make your own assumption if it’s a nootropic of your choice.

Noopept Review & Benefits


What does Noopept do?

Scientist believes that the main purpose it has is for the neuroprotective and neurogenesis properties, your ability to create new cells.

Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) & Brain-Derived Neurotropic Factor (BDNF) (1) (2)

Noopept increases levels of the proteins (NGF and BDNF) in the brain, which is important for neuroplasticity and your brains ability to learn and adapt.

NGF is a neurotrophic factor, primary involved in the growth, survival, and maintenance of nerve cells (neurons).

Increasing NGF improves the performance of neural networks and enables new neural connections.

BDNF has a similar role to NGF; it helps and supports the survival of neurons.

Plus, stimulate the growth and differentiation of neurons and synapses. BDNF alone is important for long-term memory.

Improved memory and learning abilities are two benefits you’ll notice quickly.

For some it can also improve memory consolidation and speed of recall. This is likely to happen overtime with the use of noopept.

What you study, read, and hear will stick into your head.

But keep in mind to achieve this you might also need to include high a quality choline source, preferably Alpha GPC.

How Does Noopept Work?


How it works is not yet completely understood for an exact explanation, but this is what we can say today.

Noopept is absorbed within the GI tract, then it circulates to the brain and crosses the blood-brain barrier. Almost everything gets absorbed.

The substance reaches maximum concentration within 20 minutes or less, which makes it to one of the most fast acting nootropic available.

It works on glutamate receptors, the main excitatory neurotransmitter involved with neural communication, memory formation, and learning.

Noopept targets specific glutamate receptor, then it binds and inhibits the breakdown of them.

It makes the receptors more sensitive to glutamate so they become more available for neurotransmitters.

Noopept also increases the amount of oxygen within the brain and enhances glucose metabolism.

Glucose is the brain’s main source of energy, enhancing it allows your brain to use it more effectively and may be why Noopept offers more mental clarity, focus, and concentration.

My Noopept Experience


Everyone has unique brain chemistry, so there’s a chance that your experience can be different from mine.

Because my diet looks different and I take other supplements for brain function.

The supplement I took when I was on Noopept; Fish oil, Matcha Tea (Theanine & Caffeine), Vitamin D, and Vitamin B12.

I noticed that learning abilities, memory, and mental clarity improved significantly.

But didn’t notice much improvement in focus.

Bought it to improve my focus, but instead I got better memory and learning abilities.

What I’ve learned from reading got stuck into my head and I was able to recall that information faster than I used to do. I could also recall conversations I had with people with clarity. Most of the details just appeared into my head quickly and almost without effort.

Took Alpha GPC with Noopept, which is highly recommended. Alpha GPC will enhance the benefits of Noopept. Plus, counteract the headaches that strong nootropics can cause. Tried Noopept without it and got a light headache.


How much Noopept should you take to notice the effects?

You should start small and take 10-30mg per day. Don’t take more than 40mg within 24-hours, this can put to much pressure on your glutamate receptors. You need to experiment and see what works for you. Begin with 5mg 2-3 times per day. After 1 week you can go for 30mg and even 40mg.

Experienced noopept user takes it for 50 days straight and then take a break for 5 business days.

Noopept has a short half-life and its best taken sublingual under your tongue.

Side Effects

Only a few side effects has been reported;

  • Insomnia
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue

However, this is likely to happen if you take too much Noopept. Avoid to take it late in the day to not disturb your sleep cycle.

I did not experience any side effects except slight headaches when I ignored Alpha GPC once.


Final Words

Noopept has made its way into many people’s nootropic stack due to its ability to improve memory, focus, mental clarity, and for the neuroprotective properties.

It’s good for days when you need to be productive.

Noopept is a nootropic that contributes to long-term memory improvements and overall brain health.

The best way to take Noopept is in powder form under your tongue. You can feel the effects quickly after ingestion, within 20 minutes or less and the half-life is around 30-60 minutes.
