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. 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.

    2. Great

      Good product. Great customer service. on 18th Aug 2017

    3. pleasantly surprised

      As a newbie to nootropics I just can say this stuff works and it worked for me within an hour after ingestion. It made me very eloquent. on 16th Aug 2017

    4. Great quality

      This was one of 3 items I use in my nootropic stack which to my surprise is very high quality. When incorporated into the stack, I find that my recall and ability to focus is more than enough to keep me going for the whole day. on 5th Aug 2017

    5. surprising results

      clearly one of the best nootropic i have found to magnify and clarify my thought and perception. on 16th Jul 2017

    6. Preeeeetty cool

      I'm an electrical engineering student who was looking to get an edge so I tried this out and so far I am pretty impressed. Currently taking 6-7g per day with Alpha GPC in 8:1 piracetam to AGPC ratio (by mass).

      What I have noticed using it: (1) it's easier to get into "flow" working on tasks, (2) I seem to be more articulate in both speech and thought on it, and (3) I find it easier to get to work (less inclined to procrastinate). Would recommend :)

    7. great product

      Excellent product for a reasonable price compared to other brands. Shipping is always fast as well. Recommended it to many friends and they experienced the same positive results on 3rd Jul 2017

    8. Piracetam...opens up your possibilites

      Even small amounts make mind function better, faster in and out with thoughts. It is rare to have a word hanging on your tongue, they just come out. If you need to take a test or brainstorm, this a great product. on 27th Jun 2017

    9. high quality product great price

      Without have an independent lab assay this product there are several thing I find significant. This product has a crystalline even texture and translucent appearance that I did not see in another piracetam powder I purchased which really was a powder. Second the taste is less bitter. This could mean anything but my take is better.
      I don't notice any difference int the efficacy but feel this is more pure and hopefully better for my health and well being.
      I will buy this again versus another brand. Not only does it appear higher quality is is comparably priced. My current best choice.

    10. Fast shipping and top-notch customer service.

      I'd been meaning to leave a review for a few weeks now. As a customer, I'll admit to being fussy and I've not been disappointed at all with ND's CS and fast shipping. That alone says a lot about ND. If they can please me, they can please most everyone.

      My last order was comprised of L-theanine and Piracetam (capsules). The L-theanine is top-notch as it has that expected umami taste and gives a calm mind. No complaint whatsoever there.

      As to the Piracetam, only my wife has tried it and overall she seems to like it. As far as I'm concerned, I'll let you know how I like it after I've tried it for some time.
