Noopept is a powerful nootropic (cognitive enhancer) that is a thousand times more potent and stronger than piracetam. Unlike other nootropics, the effect of this synthetic smart drug can be felt in just a few minutes after it reaches the bloodstream. To reap the full benefits of Noopept, it can be taken in pill, powder or drop form and is available in many drugstores.

Overall Health Benefits of Noopept

  • Improves memory and cognition by promoting growth of brain cells. [1-18]
  • Fights anxiety [2, 19-20]
  • Boosts immune function [21-23]
  • Improves mood [24-26]

Proven Health Benefits of Noopept

Improves Cognitive Function

An overwhelming body of clinical evidence supports the benefits of Noopept on various areas of cognitive function such as memory, learning, and thinking ability:

  • In patients with cognitive disturbances caused by traumas or vascular brain diseases, Noopept improved brain function as evidenced by increased alpha- and beta-rhythms power in the electroencephalogram (EEG). [1-2]
  • Administration of Noopept at a dose of 20 mg daily for 2 months improved cognitive function in patients with stroke and has a high level of safety. [3]
  • In several animal models of Alzheimer disease (AD), Noopept protected rat brain cells against amyloid beta toxicity (causative agent of AD) by inhibiting oxidative damage, preventing calcium overload, and suppressing apoptosis (programed cell death). [4-10]
  • Repeated oral administration of Noopept in rats improved learning compared to single dose. [11]
  • In a photochemical stroke rat model, Noopept demonstrated both cognition-restoring and neuroprotective properties. [12]
  • In normal and Down’s syndrome human brain neurons, Noopept prevented oxidative damage and apoptosis. [13]
  • In conscious rats, Noopept administration increased brain activity in the EEG. [14]
  • Noopept has the ability to increase the levels of Nerve Growth Factor and Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor, which is associated with chronic improvement in memory. [15-16]
  • Noopept may help improve cognitive function by enhancing the electrical signals between neurons. [17]
  • Noopept at a 1:1 ratio or ten-fold greater appeared to significantly reduce the levels of Lewy bodies (protein clumps causing Parkinson’s disease) in the brain. [18]

Fights Anxiety

Noopept’s cognitive-enhancing abilities also produce anti-anxiety effect according to studies:

  • In rats, Noopept administration was associated with an increase in locomotor activity in the elevated plus-maze test, suggesting an anti-anxiety effect. [19]
  • Noopept administration also increased exploratory behavior of rats undergoing open field test, which is indicative of reduced anxiety. [20]
  • Administration of Noopept in patients with mild cognitive impairment reduced fatigue, anxiety, and irritability. [2]

Boosts Immune Function

Taking Noopept can also ward off a wide array of diseases. There is increasing evidence suggesting that this cognitive enhancer also has potent immune-boosting properties:

  • In animal models, Noopept stimulated humoral and cellular immune response to various antigens (harmful microorganisms) and markedly increased the levels of white blood cells. [21]
  • In rats, Noopept administration for 5 days at a daily dose of 0.5 mg/kg (injections) or 5 mg/kg (oral) significantly reduced chronic immune inflammation. [22]
  • In mice, Noopept injection at 5 mg/kg reduced the levels of inflammatory substances such as IL-6 and TNF-alpha. [23]

Improves Mood

Noopept can also help improve mood, making it a potential therapeutic option for certain mental health disorders:

  • In rats with neurosis, a mental illness characterized by stress, depression, anxiety, and obsessive behavior, Noopept administration reduced the incidence of learned helplessness. [24]
  • Long-term Noopept administration (21 days) significantly eliminated the manifestations of learned helplessness compared to the anti-anxiety drug Afobazol. [25]
  • Chronic administration (28 days, 0.5 mg/day via injections) of Noopept improved behavior by decreasing the activity of stress-induced kinases (involved in mental disorders) and increasing the levels of BDNF. [26]
