What Are Peptide Nootropics
Peptide nootropics are an-ever changing area of supplements that are all involved with peptides in some way. This group of nootropics improves the way the brain’s receptors work, but also impact the neurotransmitters – this makes them a great choice for improving a range of brain functions including (but not limited to) memory, learning ability, reflexes, logical thinking, perception and dealing with negative thoughts.
There is currently a limited number of peptide nootropics on the market, however the development of new strains continues to progress and is considered an exciting area of nootropics.
Russia leads the fore in this area. The most common and widely-praised stimulant in this area is noopept, a Russian nootropic that is a derivative of peptide. It is thought to be a whopping 1000 times more powerful than Piractam and easily penetrates the blood-brain barrier, meaning that users can achieve impressive results from taking only small amounts. It is considered as the most potent nootropic available today, as well as incredibly safe and good value for money.
Noopept works by stimulating the AMPA and NDMA receptors, which release glutamate, in addition to the ACH receptors, which regulate levels of acetylcholine in the brain. In this respect it works in a similar way to racetams and ampakines. Additionally, Noopept encourages the release of nerve growth factor, a protein essential to the growth and maintenance of nerve cells and neurons.
Other popular peptide nootropics include Semax and Cerebrolysin – a major disadvantage of these supplements, however, is that they have to be taken nasally or injected, which many users see as a turn off. However, peptide nootropics are generally easy for the body to absorb and put to work.
