Noopept is a new Racetam like nootropic developed by Russian laboratories and used commonly in Russia and nearby countries. Believed to be over 1000 times more potent than some of the first nootropics. Noopept is fast becoming one of the most popular nootropic substances as its action is simply astonishing.
Shown to boost learning, memory and recall.
Shown to boost levels of Nerve Growth Factor. 
Anti-oxidant properties have also been shown.
Communication between left and right hemisphere improved.
Although not strictly a Racetam, Noopept has been closely related to other racetams, due to its similar mechanism of action. It is believed to be somewhere between 1000 to 5000 times more potent than some of the first racetams. This means that a tiny dose of Noopept is needed for similar effects.
First identified in Russia, Noopept has been the product of important advances in nootropic studies. Due its safety and efficacy, many people are now supplementing themselves with Noopept. Noopept has been approved in Russia to treat some neurological disorders and aid healthy peoples cognition as well as now gaining popularity in other countries.
Unlike older nootropics, studies have shown Noopept to not only improve the early stages of memory creation but also the consolidation and retrieval. Further studies have shown a marked increase in learning and general memory recall.
Noopept has successfully been shown to actually prevent brain damage in oxygen deprived rodents, as well as preventing cell death on human neurons.
Nerve Growth Factor (NGF) is responsible for promoting survival and further growth of specific neurons. Brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is another factor with similar properties, in particular helping to maintain the health of existing neurons and maintaining long term memory. Noopept has been shown to significantly increase the growth factors in animal studies. 
Communication between the right and left hemispheres is important for creativity and memory. Noopept has been shown to improve this aspect of brain communication. The same study also found an anti-oxidant effect via excess calcium removal as well as a significant reversal of brain damage as a result of ischemia, brain injury and prenatal damage.
Other studies have shown Noopept to possess the following properties: effective against Alzheimer’s, Prevents certain types of amnesia, reduced severity of some headache types, may help immune system, effective treatment for mental retardation and neurodegenerative disorders.
How Does Noopept Work?
Noopept has an Ampakine action by reacting with the glutamatergic AMPA receptor, it's thought to act by binding to the receptor and allowing for an increase movement of Glutamate between neurons. Glutamate is responsible for keeping the brain and body awake and generally stimulating the body and mind. Noopept can be taken orally and enters the GI tract with a rapid absorption and peak plasma levels reached in as little as 15 minutes. Due to the mechanism of action, supplementation with a strong source of Choline should enhance the nootropics effects of Noopept.
