Nootropil, also known as Piracetam, is a nootropic agent used to enhance cognitive function. It is considered a "smart drug" and is utilized as a memory and cognitive enhancer, as well as in the treatment of conditions such as Alzheimer's disease. 

Nootropil is known for its neuroprotective properties and its ability to rejuvenate brain functions and reduce neurodegenerative cascades. It is an extremely nontoxic compound that works on neuroendocrine-immune levels to support brain health.


  • Take Nootropil exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
  • This includes dosage (usually comes in various strengths), frequency (typically once or twice daily), and whether to take it with or without food.
