Good things take time. Noopept takes time

Biohacker Review of Noopept: I don’t see what all the hype is about…

I’ve been doing 30 milligrams of Noopept almost every day for the past 3 weeks, I did Liftmode Noopept for about a week also.

Noopept is not supposed to be a blast your face off effect, I haven’t noticed much honestly. I think that Noopept is more a tool for Biohacking and than lifehacking. Let me explain what I mean by that:
Noopept is suggested by some human studies to improve memory and cognition, I think it probably has a long term positive effect on memory, so it’s a Biohack in that respect.

However, “lifehacking” means tools and strategies that to improve productivity right now. In that regard, Noopept was of dubious value to me.

It’s hard to say that it had any noticeable effect on my memory after 3 weeks. I already have a pretty good memory thanks to lots of brain training, meditation, optimized diet, reading, exercise, writing and being 29 years old. It didn’t noticeably improve my brain training scores in Lumosity.


You take it sublingually, so you dump the little spoon load under your tongue and let it sit there for a few minutes. It has a druggy but not really unpleasant taste.


I varied the dosage up and down and noticed next to nothing. I pushed the dosage up to as much as 100 Milligrams once and it still didn’t make much of a difference to me. The first I did this high dosage it felt like a cup of coffee for about an hour.

I stacked it with a bunch of different things, Phenylpiracetam, Aniracetam, Alpha GPC, Theanine, Horny Goat Weed and even Modafinil — nothing interesting to report.


Some people on a few of the Biohacker forums were talking about Noopept being a libido enhancer. It definitely wasn’t for me, I was even no fapping while taking Noopept and there was no noticeable difference. If you want a libido enhancer go Bachata or Reggaeton dancing at a nightclub!

Maybe Noopept just doesn’t agree with my constitution, I don’t see what all the hype is about. It’s cheap, so I guess you are getting what you are paying for. I would not recommend ordering it alone as I think you will be bored with it.

Update: I’ve used Noopept a number of other times and came to conclusion that it’s not useless, but for me and many others it requires longer term usage to see much cognitive uptick.
