Because of either their long history of success, or their relative inexpensiveness, or both, the racetams are the staple of the nootropic world. The glowing reputation many of these nootropics have attests to their ability to help support the brain.
There are a variety of racetam nootropics; this selection offers customers the ability to pick the one that works best for them. Everyone will have their preference, and one of the racetams that is often cited as a perennial fan-favorite in Aniracetam.
What is Aniracetam Powder?
Aniracetam is fat-soluble and will therfore NOT mix well with water. It is best to take fat-soluble racetams after a meal or with a fat source such as fish oil. Your body will not absorb or benefit from a fat-soluble racetam on an empty stomach.
An N-side chain modified derivative of the original racetam, Aniracetam (1-(4-methoxybenzoyl)-2-pyrrolidinone) is popular in the nootropic community. This is because Aniracetam has carved out a reputation as being a very potent racetam and for being an ampakine.
Side Effects and Benefits
Like the other racetams, Aniracetam is a powerful nootropic. Studies have indicated its ability to shoot up cognitive test scores by as much as 30%. Individuals often take it for central nervous system support and cognitive enhancement.
One of the main functions of Aniracetam is on the glutamate system in the brain.Glutamate is a potent neurotransmitter, but the brain happens to become easily desensitized to its presence. This means that you need more and more glutamate to get the same effect.
Aniracetam has shown to decrease sensitivity to glutamate, meaning that the same amount of glutamate has more effectiveness. That's why Aniracetam can increase the effects of glutamate which leads to an increase in brain activity.
By slowing the kinetics of fast synaptic transmission, Aniracetam increases glutamate sensitivity.
Aniracetam also appears to raise glutamate caused currents in whole-cell recordings.
While the direct mechanisms are not well understood, as is the case with the racetam family in general, Aniracetam has repeatedly shown to be favorite and to have low toxicity.
With about a two hour half-life, individuals typically take Aniracetam multiple times a day. Most individuals start with a 750mg Aniracetam dose 2-3 times a day with meals.
As with other racetams, many people suggest taking choline to help support and boost the beneficial Aniracetam side effects while helping you avoid headaches. Users can take Aniracetam with CDP-choline, Alpha GPC, choline bitartrate, or any other choline product.
