What Is Noopept?
Noopept is widely used in Europe and is legally prescribed in Russia for it’s nootropic and neuroprotective properties. It’s popularity is continuing to grow at a considerable rate due to a growing amount of reports suggesting that it is an effective cognitive enhancer with little side-effects. It is often mistaken for being part of the racetam family, due to it’s similarity of effects to those in the racetam family, especially Piracetam. Noopept is said to be 1000 times more potent than Piracetam. It is made for human consumption, however adequate measures should be taken when experimental research takes place.
Noopept Chemical Properties
Chemical Formula: C17H22N2O4
Molar Mass: 318.367 g/mol
It is a synthetic peptide. It contains a phenylacetyl subunit bound to a small peptide chain of glycine and proline. You will find the glycine amino acid bound to the proline with a peptide bond. While the proline amino acid is made up of a carboxylic acid group bound to a pyrrolidine ring at C2. It has been found to be structurally similar to an endogenous neuropeptide cycloprolylglycine. Due to it lacking a pyrrolidone cycle it is not considered a racetam.
Although little research has been done on Noopept, there does seem to be some consistency regarding the effects of the research chemical.
