Aniracetam is a fat soluble form of the nootropic Piracetam and used for decades worldwide. While it shares some of Piracetam’s effects on the brain it has two main unique advantages Piracetam does not have: 1. Being fat soluble, Aniracetam it has better penetration into the brain through the blood brain barrier. 2. Aniracetam is a potent stimulator of the brain’s Glutamate AMPA receptors. AMPA receptor research is considered an exciting development in studying and enhancing cognition. Such compounds that effect AMPA receptors are called Ampakines. The USA's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has been actively researching ampakines for military use as a mental performance enhancer.
Aniracetam is a clinically studied broad range cognitive enhancer researched and used especially in Europe for supporting cognitive health and may provide some benefit with emotional health.
: May improve cognition, learning, and memory. [By being a Positive allosteric modulator of AMPA Glutamate receptors.] (Enhances glutamatergic neurotransmission, long term potentiation, synaptic transmission, neurotrophin expression, and impulsivity.)
: May improve memory and motivation [Potentates alpha 4 beta 2-type nicotinic acetylcholine receptors] (Facilitates dual dopaminergic/serotonergic transmission)
: May elevates memory consolidation [Regulates calcium/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase (CaMKII)]
: May reduce stress levels [Modulates Serotonin 5-HT2A and dopamine D2 receptors]
: May increase mental energy [Improves cerebral glucose metabolism]
1-4 capsules taken daily or as needed in 2-3 divided doses with meals. For long term usage it may be best to take weekend breaks.
