First created in 1961 by Merck Laboratories, Pyritinol HCL is a water-soluble analogue of vitamin B6. It is synthesized by joining two vitamin B6 molecules with a disulfide bridge, which is comprised of two sulfur atoms. Pyritinol benefits are related to those of vitamin B6, which is an important micronutrient for healthy brain function. Pyritinol is generally used as a nootropic compound to aid in concentration, speed of thought and function, and as a mood booster.
While people buy Pyritinol as a nootropic compound in the U.S., it has been used in other countries around the world since the 1970s.
Pyritinol is known anecdotally for its ability to improve cognitive function in the areas of focus, concentration, memory, and mood. Pyritinol benefits are likely due to its relation to vitamin B6, which is also derived from food sources including sunflower seeds, salmon, tuna, chicken, bananas, avocados, cooked spinach, and others. This nutrient aids in the production of important neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, epinephrine, glutamate. Dopamine especially is important in mood regulation, and low dopamine levels are associated with depression and anxiety.
Pyritinol may also increase uptake of choline to neurons and positively affects acetylcholine levels, which is a neurotransmitter essential to learning, reasoning, and memory. This also can increase mental clarity, visual processing, and reaction time.
Anecdotally, Pyritinol has helped some to reduce the symptoms of hangover. Its ability to repair damaged neurons also aids in maintaining brain cell health.
Pyritinol has shown some success in aiding certain conditions, including Tourette’s, dementia, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Five stars to ND -- I have bought many, many products over the past months. And I can say without hesitation that they are the best around.
Pyritinol is one of the first nootropics that I tried, I believe eight years ago (when I purchased from a vendor who has long since curtailed its offering, and whom I've not gone back to in years). In the past few years, I've bought from other vendors, and the results have been null and, worse, negative. I'd nearly written it off.
Pyritinol gives immediately noticeable effects, and there is some evidence to support its potent antioxidant properties (it's used quite commonly in Europe to this day, I believe). ND's Pyritinol gives me the same positive results as I recall from my first experience -- a decided boost in mental clarity. Perhaps this is something to cycle, but the results seem to diminish within a few days, those that you feel, anyway. Each time I've taken it, going years back, I've gotten small rashes on my hands or arms (going back to previous vendors). There is one study that cites a remote risk, I should note, but Pyritinol is generally regarded as safe, and studies go back to its development to the '60s.
Bottom line, I personally Phenylpiracatam a better alternative (and I keep a stock of ND's on hand). However, I would recommend ND's product if you're interested in giving Pyritinol a try. Unknown on 16th Oct 2016
