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. Quality and Quantity

      I love this brand I'm going to reorder after this review. on 9th Dec 2017

    2. Sharper, but subtle.

      Got this powder in the mail. No trouble passing customs. Taste is bitter, but with some juice it is somewhat masked. taking 3x 1.2g with 0.5g alpha-GPC 2caps FO and 1g ALCAR. Makes my head more clear during studying and exams. I expected more from piracetam so I will be trying Noopept in the future and see what that does. I do recommend this if you want to enhance your focus and performance, but results may vary heavily per person. on 5th Dec 2017

    3. Worth buying.

      Good value. on 4th Dec 2017

    4. Definetly Piracetam & Effective

      Has the bitterly sweet taste & the same clear headiness from increased blood flow that reminds me of a niacin flush, only wish it came with a scooper. Thankfully I am a sensitive responder to Piracetam & many medications in general, needing only around 1-2 grams split on the days I do take it. on 29th Nov 2017

    5. Piracetam&Centrophenoxine Combo

      1,3g x 3 /day Piracetam
      300mg x 3 /day Centrophenoxine

      1st after waking up of the test subjects on an empty stomach; 12am before lunch and 4pm. If it’s taken later, falling asleep is more difficult for them. (brain overdrive, visualizations etc.)

      Effects duration: ~4hrs

      Onset: Almost immediately a sort of tingling sensation over the face, everything becomes clearer as well as the vision, thinking.

      Taste: bitter w/ a sweet aftertaste

      Side effects: light dehydration and temperature rise. Afternoon nap doesn’t work. Kind of tension in the frontal lobe is observed, but not disturbing.

      Qualitative effects:
      Mood stabilization, a desire to cope with problems rather than denying them. Wider eye sight, sharper and better sound perception. Feels like refreshed, focused and at a time calm. Without an anxiety like after caffeine or amphetamine, so the effect is stable, not that jittery. Socializing and talking is more fun, subtle confidence builds up too. A straightforward sharp thinking, meditation becomes focused.

    6. First Day & I'm Lovin' it!

      I just took Piracetam for the first time this morning and I am highly impressed. I normally have to have a few cups of coffee + espresso before noon (and more throughout the day), but today I only had one cup of coffee! That's saying a lot. Perhaps more importantly than not feeling like a foggy headed zombie, I had 0 anxiety! Even my boss noticed I was "in a better place". This product made me alert, happy and anxiety free (also seemed to relieve me of the daily headaches I get) -- I feel like I am a better me. Thank you, Nootropics Depot!

    7. Slight Calming Effect as well as Stimulation

      I'm not sure what the medical benefits of this chemical could be one day but I feel like it has something to do with ADHD it did not work as well as I thought when I originally purchased it but it did do something maybe further testing is required. on 15th Nov 2017

    8. Good stuff

      The product is fine but whoever shipped it did not put my unit number on the outside packing only the street address.

    9. Subtle

      I have a mixed feeling toward Piracetam. I did not have any notable effects at first. Around a week of use I experienced a sense clarity and focus I have not felt before. This was followed after my third dose of the day. I have since not been able to duplicate a similar effect I experienced on that particular day. I do know it works, I just have to dial it in I'm guessing. on 13th Nov 2017

    10. Fast delivery.

      Courteous, friendly and accommodating staff, and being a returning English customer, I have to admire the speed at which my order crosses the ocean to my door.
      Nice one'!
