Piracetam Powder

  • Product Description

    What Is Piracetam?

    Piracetam is a memory enhancing, nootropic compound in the "racetam" family that is structurally similar to the neurotransmitter GABA (though it does not function in the same way). As the “parent molecule” of the racetam family, Piracetam was first synthesized in 1964. All other racetams, including Aniracetam, Phenylpiracetam, and others, are structurally related to Piracetam.  Piracetam is water-soluble, considered very stable and 100% orally bioavailable. 

    How Does Piracetam Work?

    While there is no single scientific conclusion as to why Piracetam may support cognitive function and enhance memory, its widely held that it may be due to Piracetam's ability to enhance cellular membrane fluidity as well as support mitochondrial function. 

    Piracetam is a positive allosteric modulator (PAM) of the NMDA and AMPA receptors, which are the body’s excitatory receptors that are normally bound to by glutamate. Piracetam powder can also increase oxygen and blood flow in key areas of the brain. Anecdotal evidence suggests that it can bring about mild cognitive improvements in otherwise healthy people. Research has shown that Piracetam powder can be even more helpful to those who experience cognitive decline as a result of aging.

    What Are Piracetam Benefits and Uses?

    Piracetam has been shown to be a possibly useful nootropic compound for a range of conditions and age groups. Some Piracetam benefits may include:

    • Improve cognition in the elderly - Piracetam is backed with multiple clinical studies showing it has helped to improve cognitive decline and the aggression that can come with this process in the elderly. The introduction of Piracetam can both reduce the rate of cognitive decline and help to repair existing decline. Piracetam may enhance cellular membrane fluidity which is believed to be the main mechanism behind its ability to support cognitive function. 
    • Improved cognition and memory recall in healthy individuals - Clinical research shows Piracetam's effects to be helpful to the elderly, but anecdotal evidence also suggests it can mildly improve cognition and neural function in otherwise healthy adults. Users report improved short-term memory recall as one of the Piracetam benefits.
    • Promote Sensory Perception - Piracetam may enhance sensory perception due to its potential ability to promote acetylcholine activity, 
    • Support healthy stress levels and enhance mood - While clinical research is limited, some anecdotal reports suggest that Piracetam may support healthy stress levels and possess mood boosting properties. One published clinical study has confirmed similar findings. 


    Additional Piracetam benefits may include its ability to support the mitochondrial electron transport chain (which influences the Krebs cycle) and enhance short term memory recall. Piracetam may also possess neuroprotective properties.

    1. High Quality

      The product is of excellent purity and high quality. The shipment was very quick. The price is unbeatable. I highly recommend this vendor. on 16th Mar 2018

    2. It´s piracetam

      Great, highly recommended. on 13th Mar 2018

    3. A good supplement for longer periods

      I'm a student currently, and was looking for something to help me keep my concentration and mental stamina up through class and late night homework. Upon receiving piracetam, I also ordered alpha GPC which seems to definitely work well together. I noticed a slight but subtle effect of piracetam, 1g, the first time, but soon after had a difficult time noticing any real effects. I started taking continued periods of 2-3 grams dosage with 600 mg 50% alpha GPC and after a week felt a slight elevation in the effects. Now I take it as a supplement. But after trying Noopept, feel its not a really strong nootropic, but good for long term basis. on 4th Mar 2018

    4. Its ok but...

      I’ve tried different doses. I’ve tried taking it at different times. But no matter what, it makes my head foggy. It definitely works, but I can’t perform well on it. So now I just take it a few hours before I go to sleep. I have noticed it helps me sleep. But during my awake hours I only take Aniracetam. on 4th Mar 2018

    5. nootropics is the Best !!

      Love nootropics. You receive it quickly . I just ordered Lions Mane and can’t wait to try it on 1st Mar 2018

    6. Better than previous piracetam products i bought

      Not to bitter as previous product from other vendor, purity seems better,works great for stabilizing mood,anxiety and verbal fluency (especially last one). Could be placeboo but already using 5 months and recently with cdp choline wich really helps with headache problems.. on 1st Mar 2018

    7. subtle but definitely useful!

      I take prescription Adderall for my ADD, it comes with horrible side effects but I take it because my doctor says I have to. Piracetam made it so I can lower my dose, have less side effects, and have more benefits. I take it twice a day every day that I take adderall (5 days a week) andreally notice the difference! Very glad I came across this helpful thing :) on 1st Mar 2018

    8. Genuine product!!!

      Thank you for sending it to UK,any UK buyers can buy with confidence,these guys know how to do their job! Product is exactly as expected. Thank you on 28th Feb 2018

    9. Great Quality

      I've been taking Piracetam in random intervals in my life for over 10 years. Haven't ordered any in 3 years and the first two scoops brought my mind right where it needed to be. Product arrived quickly, great packaging, and the quality of the product, based on my experience, is great. Always drink a lot of water with it, breathe deeply, and get your mind moving in the right direction. Coffee and music are wonderful components with piracetam. Workouts are better also. on 25th Feb 2018

    10. Good stuff

      I take it as a teaspoonful once a day with a fruit smoothie. Hope it will support my cognitive ability. on 19th Feb 2018
