Noopept: A Superstrong Cognition and Mood Booster

Noopept molecule

Are you seeking an extra strong nootropic that will enhance your memory and focus while improving your mood? Noopept could be just right for you. Noopept – also known as N-phenylacetyl-L-polyglycine ethyl ester or GVS-111 – is a dipeptide compound derived from Piracetam. It was developed in Russia in the 1990s. Like Piracetam, it’s a…

Phenylpiracetam: A Powerful Racetam with Unique Properties

Phenylpiracetam molecule

You probably associate nootropics with students staying up all night studying for exams or business people trying to increase their productivity after long haul flights and late meetings. Phenylpiracetam, however, has gained notoriety because of sports. In 2006, Russian Olympic biathlete Olga Pyleleva was stripped of a silver medal for taking a stimulant known as…

Pramiracetam: For Extreme Cognitive Power

Pramiracetam moleculea nootropic that’s  exceptionally strong, it might be just right for you. Like Aniracetam, Pramiracetam, N-(2-(diisopropylamino)ethyl)-2-oxo-l-pyrrolidineacetamide, is fat soluble. That means it crosses the blood-brain barrier easily. In fact, Pramiracetam dissolves in fat more easily than any of the other racetam do. This allows it to be absorbed very rapidly and could explain why its effect is so stroing. Effects on Cognition Pramiracetam was developed by Parke, Davis and Co., which reported the drug’s nootropic effects in 1978. Since then, further research has demonstrated its neuroprotective and memory enhancing effects. Studies in rats and mice have shown that Pramiracetam improves retention, enhances spatial learning ability and helps prevent chemically induced amnesia. A 1991 study showed that Pramiracetam improved memory and helped treat other cognitive problems in men with brain injuries. The improvements persisted a month after the men stopped taking the drug. In 1994, researchers gave male volunteers scopolamine to induce amnesia. When the volunteers were given Pramiracetam, the amnesic effects were partially reduced. Some studies have suggested that Pramiracetam could help people with Alzheimer’s disease, but other studies have produced conflicting results. Pramiracetam users report that it allows them to think more clearly and focus more easily. How It Works Scientists aren’t exactly sure how Pramiracetam gets its effects. Research shows it increases choline uptake in the cerebral cortex and in the hippocampus, which plays a role in memory formation. Choline is a precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter associated with learning and memory. Pramiracetam has also been shown to increase blood flow to the brain. It appears to increase brain membrane fluidity in old, but not young rats. Although some users claim that Pramiracetam helps with social anxiety, it hasn’t been shown to have any effect on dopamine or serotonin receptors. If you’re specifically trying to relieve social anxiety, you’re better off taking Aniracetam, which does affect these neurotransmitter receptors. How Take It Pramiracetam is much stronger than Piracetam. Research on rats shows that a dose of Pramiracetam can have 10 to 15 times the effect as the same dose of Piracetam. Recommended doses of Pramiracetam range from 75 to 1500 milligrams day. These should be broken up into two or three doses throughout the day. In fact, Pramiracetam is so powerful on its own that it’s been recommended that you don’t stack it with any other nootropic. You can take it with choline to prevent headaches. Piracetam in powder form is known to have an exceptionally bitter taste, to the point of being almost unpalatable. Because it isn’t water soluble, you can’t mix it with juice. Instead, you can mix it with something fatty, such as milk. You can buy Piracetam in pill form, but it will cost more and you won’t be able to make small dosage adjustments.

Pramiracetam is one of the most powerful racetams available. If you’re looking for a nootropic that’s  exceptionally strong, it might be just right for you. Like Aniracetam, Pramiracetam, N-(2-(diisopropylamino)ethyl)-2-oxo-l-pyrrolidineacetamide, is fat soluble. That means it crosses the blood-brain barrier easily.

Oxiracetam: A Powerful Alternative

rat

Once you’re used to Piracetam you might think about stepping up to Oxiracetam, or 4-hydroxy-2-oxo-l-pyrrolidineacetamide. While Oxiracetam hasn’t been studied as much as Piracetam, research suggests that it’s an even more powerful cognitive enhancer. Cognition Studies of rodents and humans show that Oxiracetam protects rats and mice from amnesia after physical or chemical injury, such…

What are Nootropics?

studying

You’ve probably seen nootropics sold online, sometimes as “smart drugs,” and wondered what they are and how they work. Here’s a brief guide: Smart Drugs A nootropic is a drug that improves mental functioning. Nootropics improve your memory and make you more focused. They have a protective effect, meaning they prevent memory loss and other…
