Recent decades have been marked by the ever-increasing use of drugs of nootropic action. This is due to the rhythm of modern life, which requires processing a big amount of data, which creates a significant burden on the brain. In order to protect the brain from many adverse factors, drugs called nootropics have been developed. The term “nootropic drugs” is derived from the Greek noos (thinking, reason) and tropos (aspiration). This term was proposed in 1972 by S. Giurgea, who identified nootropics as a new group of drugs that have a specific activating effect on the integrative functions of the brain. The mechanism of the nootropic effect is multivalent. The nootropic concept has become the largest contribution to the development of psychopharmacology. Noopept® has a special place among a wide range of nootropic drugs. It is the result of more than 20-year work of researchers from the Zakusov Scientific Research Institute of Pharmacology named after Vasiliy Zakusov an honored pharmacologist of the Soviet Union.
Noopept® was created based on the peptide design methodology. It is an N-phenyl-acetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester. Its effect is physiological to the human body, as it is based on the formation of an active compound cyclopropyl glycine, which is naturally occurring in the brain. This substance is also called the “memory peptide.” The drug has pronounced nootropic and neuroprotective properties in doses much less than those of Piracetam, but it is characterized by much more diverse pharmacodynamics.
The drug contributes to:
- Reduction of headaches, dizziness, palpitations;
- Normalization of sleep;
- Decreasing the irritability and improving the emotional background;
- Improving health and reducing fatigue.
It will be useful both for young people who want to restore a high concentration of attention and good memory and for people over 50 y.o. who need to maintain mental performance in the family, at work, and in society. The drug can also help cope with the effects of a traumatic brain injury and a stroke, asthenic disorders, and autonomic disorders.
The use of Noopept® is simple and convenient: daily dosage is one tablet (10 mg) x 2 times a day (morning and afternoon). It is important to note that in order to achieve a full effect, the drug should be taken in a course (at least 1.5 months = 2 packs). The end of the course of treatment does NOT require a gradual reduction in dosage.
