Piracetam is considered to be the “father” of nootropic drugs (cognitive enhancers.) Piracetam has been shown to improve a whole series of mental activities, especially higher cortical functions. It can improve your intelligence, concentration, memory and creativity. Piracetam is a cyclic derivative (2-oxo-pyrrolidine acetamide) of the amino acid GABA (gamma amino butyric acid). Although GABA is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, piracetam does not appear to act in the same way. Piracetam has been shown in studies spanning three decades to:
· enhance memory, particularly when used in combination with choline.
· increase attention and cognition.
· improve spatial learning.
· improve the use of glucose by the brain.
· improve brain circulation.
· reduce lipofuscin (age pigment) buildup in the brain.
· act as an antioxidant.
One study demonstrated that piracetam facilitates learning and memory in chicks by causing increased plasma levels of corticosterone, which acts on the brain to preserve long-term memories.
Unfortunately, piracetam has not been approved by the FDA for any use, despite it's long track record and extensive clinical use in Europe. Piracetam is not available in the US, but can be ordered from offshore pharmacies (see below).
The recommended dose of piracetam is 2400 to 4800 g a day.
