September 21, 2014

Dr. Rita Ostrovskaya, world-leading expert and co-creator of Noopept, joins us to shed some light on this fairly new-to-the-scene nootropic.  She talks us through the history of the compound, touching on its low toxicity levels and its lack of known side effects. We are also introduced to a woman with no cerebellum, learn how to effectively take a “coffee nap”, and find out what some doctors are referring to as “diabetes of the brain.”

    what’s reason for taking one month off, if noopept should be used as a “prophylaxis”? (perhaps I don’t understand the meaning of this word)
