Aniracetam is a nootropic compound in the Racetam class of compounds, which share a pyrrolidone structure. The parent or prototype compound of this class is called Piracetam, and was first synthesized in 1964. Aniracetam is said to be more potent than Piracetam and also offers additional benefits discussed below. While it is a fat-soluble molecule, it doesn’t need to be taken with fats to be absorbed quickly and efficiently in the GI tract after being broken down in the liver. In fact, ingesting too much fat with Aniracetam can actually decrease absorption. Aniracetam has even been shown to absorb effectively in a fasted state.
While human clinical studies on healthy adult humans are lacking, Aniracetam has been studied extensively in animals with positive results.
● Mood Support*: Aniracetam modulates important receptors in the brain, and is thought to potentially provide mood boosting effects through cholinergic, dopaminergic, and serotonergic interactions. Studies on rats showed Aniracetam to improve stress in older rats.
● Enhance cognition*: Animal studies suggest that Aniracetam may benefit memory formation, improve judgment, and reduce impulsiveness. Aniracetam is an ampakine, and is actually the parent compound from which the ampakine class is derived. Ampakines get their name from their interaction with the brain’s AMPA receptors. Aniracetam positively modulates AMPA receptors in the brain by reducing desensitization. Ampakines are being studied for their potential benefits to overall brain health.
● Increase collective thinking and creativity*: Anecdotally, people may experience what is referred to as collective or holistic thinking, a kind of mental clarity that allows one to put the “puzzle pieces” of life together and gain perspective. With potential improved cognitive function, one can see and evaluate the world around them with greater awareness. This potential access to mental clarity can also enhance creativity, alleviating mental blockages that have hindered this area.
Current and continuing research suggests that possible include improving cognitive function. It also points to potential in otherwise healthy people. Additionally, in studies on rats the compound was found to improve cognitive deficits.

I very much enjoy aniracetam. I use it twice a week at most, but occasionally I will use a small amount with something like phenibut, tianeptine sulfate, or adrafinil. Helps to take some of the edge off of adrafinil and phenylpiracetam. It's especially good to take with adrafinil as it adds learning and memory enhancement as well as an anti-anxiety component that adrafinil itself doesn't have. For me Ani is best when I take 1500 mg, or two 750 mg capsules. I think that dosage + 200 mg of l-theanine and one or two cups of coffee really put me in a good place, add some Kratom to that occasionally and it is a damn good effect, on top of the world type of effect. Not a limitless pill of course but pretty damn good when used right. Right now I am cramming three college courses into a month's time. I'm also trying to work at least 15 hours a week. I will say that ani really helps me out with the memorization and public speech that are integral parts of my classes. I take caffeine in the form of coffee or Amino Energy pre workout every day, as well as kratom once or twice a week. Oh and last but not least, if you're a musician like me you will love this stuff because it enhances the perception of music and will help you with your focus, memory and even your creativity while playing or writing music. Good stuff. EJ on 18th Jul 2017
Aniracetam is pretty good for my mild depression. It makes me less anxious and kind of puts me in a calm mood. I stack it with Alpha-GPC and fish Oil to avoid potential side-effect such as headache associated with taking Aniracetam alone. Unknown on 16th Jul 2017
I suffer from what I would deem to be mild to moderate depression. I try to avoid prescription medications, and instead focus on diet, supplements, and coping skills to counterbalance my depression.
If you've ever suffered from depression, you know firsthand the debilitating sadness it brings. You feel hopeless, alone, and you have a sense of "learned helplessness" and no motivation.
My anecdotal experience is that Aniracetam helps alleviates the depression by helping you feel motivated and empowered. Instead of seeing an insurmountable problem, you see a challenge that you can overcome. You feel more confident, capable - like calm, control.
I haven't noticed any side-effects. My only "complaint" is that the doses are somewhat short lived.
Overall, great tool. I would highly recommend. Unknown on 7th Jul 2017
it works, what else can I say. Jeffrey Frese on 23rd Jun 2017
This particular nootropic seems about as powerful as pramiracetam.
Unlike noopept, this nootropic will last 12 hours or so.
I did feel a boost to my mood, memory and cognition with this nootropic.
I did not notice any side effects with aniracetam. Unknown on 13th May 2017
Most days the product works very well for me. I do not stack it. Really have no concept of how to do that. But as a stand alone it works very well. Thanks Nootropicsdepot!

I take one in the morning for a mood boost with the anti anxiety factor for work to help keep me focused and more in tune with what's going on around me. I also take it and coluractam before my runs and it feels great I have no worries and or depressive thoughts it make everything seem much clearer and helps with problem solving. I will be ordering more forsure. jake on 3rd May 2017
Genuinely I cannot tell if this is doing anything or if it is placebo. I will continue to try and if it becomes more noticeable, I will update this review. Unknown on 3rd May 2017
This product is top quality, its effects are subtle but quite important when you have to write or speak publicl: the words come easily, the flow is continuous even when you have not slept enough. I had to wait 3 weeks to receive it (transatlantic shipping) but that's ok. Recommending it EMMANUEL PAUL on 2nd Apr 2017
noticed the affect of aniracetam the evening of the first day of use. was juggling 5 screaming children after a long day of travel and sight seeing, suddenly realized, i had not raised my voice or lost my cool at all. under normal conditions would have been yelling at the kids and requiring a timeout for myself (walk around the block, workout). objectively i knew i should feel stressed out, but i was calm, clear headed. it was amazing!!! (insert happy dance)
as a result, found i drank less alcohol at night while on vacation once the kids had gone to bed, and just felt better all around. returning to work this week - will be interesting to see what affect the ani has on work life balance. added it to a pre-existing stack which includes L-aceyl carnation, 7keto, glutathione, cla. took the advice of other reviewers and took the aniracetam w/nootrophics depot 300mg capsule of citocoline. however came down w/a raging headache within an hour of taking that ani. next day doubled the dosage of the citocoline (2x300mg) and found the headaches had dissipated. this was my first order w/nootripics depot - have to say, was impressed w/the speed of their free delivery (4days) and packaging. as long as their prices remain reasonable, they've got a customer for life. minna on 18th Mar 2017
