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. GREAT STUFF but...

      Honestly my favorite piracetam so far. Doesn't taste as bad as I've had from other companies and I feel the benefits more. It really helps with my studies and I think it is quintessential for anyone who has trouble focusing or remembering. Creativity is also just more consistent with this as well which is great. Unfortunately, I spent a lot of my money recently on buying a large amount and then lost it all after someone snatched my luggage, I wish there was something I could do but can only wait until the discretionary funds can afford some more. on 14th Oct 2017

    2. good stuff

    3. a must have in my stack

      Amazing product! I will be a lifelong purchaser ☺️ on 18th Sep 2017

    4. good work

      Piracetam when it worked for me was quite incredible. I hyperdosed it at 10-20g daily with 10-15g fish-oil along with it, and it is by far one of the greatest feelings; outside of psychedelics and MDMA (which I experienced much later), I'd ever experienced. on 16th Sep 2017

    5. mayor lucidez

      En combinacion de la citocolina he notado mejora y menor molestia.
      Trabajo en horarios nocturnos y tomandolo previamente la mejoria cognitiva es notable

    9. great everyday nootropic

      Great everyday nootropic delivering a nice clear Focus. You should also take some choline or some type some people stack it with theanine to lessen the jitteriness racetams. on 30th Aug 2017

    10. Wonderful

      The product arrived late, (to Sweden, the delay was possibly a result of the customs clearance)
      But the effects are amazing even at low dosage, I love it.
