Piracetam is a cyclical derivative of GABA. It is synthesized by converting 2-pyrrolidinone into an amide. It was discovered in 1964 by Romanian chemist, Corneliu E. Giurgea, who later coined the term “nootropic” to describe the novel effects of this compound.
Piracetam is the archetype of the Racetam class of nootropics.
Benefits of Piracetam
It increases cholinergic neurotransmission without exhibiting stimulant properties.
Additional effects observed in research trials include the following:
- Improves general cognition and working memory.
- Increases oxygen utilization and glucose metabolism in the brain.
- Slows signs of aging and reverses some forms of neuron damage.
- Enhances cellular membrane fluidity and exerts a neuroprotective effect.
Description of product
- Also known as 2-(2-oxopyrrolidin-1-yl)acetamide.
- Piracetam absorption occurs rapidly and peak plasma levels are recorded within 1.5 hours. No metabolites of Piracetam has been detected.
- It is a cyclic derivative of Gamma-Aminobutyric acid. Piracetam is synthesized by condensing 2-pyrrolidinone with ethyl chloroacetate and a metal hydride.
- Mechanism of action
- Piracetam is observed to increase brain oxygen consumption and reduce the negative effects of oxidative stress.
- Oxygen utilization measures brain activity. More utilization more the alertness
- Its consumption increases utilization of Glucose in Alzheimer’s group.
Sources of Piracetam
Piracetam powder or pills should always be purchased from companies based in Europe or North America. In US there are many companies which are manufacturing the compound and they are reliable. It is available in competitive rates.
Noopept helps in improving brain and memory capabilities. It is considered to be 1000 times stronger than other racetams thus can be consumed in fewer amounts and with best results.
Benefits of Noopept
- It helps to improve reasoning skills and enhances concentration and learning.
- It helps to improve music and color awareness.
- Results can be gained with less consumption of Noopept
- It is a neuroprotective , so it prevents and reverse the oxidative stress effect on the brain.
- Also research shows that BDNF and NGF that are two important proteins for long-term memory, are also affected in a positive way, and thus protects neurons in the brain.
- People have reported the consumption of Noopept/Piracetam has helped to lift their mood and increased concentration. It is easily available online and in-person.
- It improves concentration and things seem to flow easier.
- It works. It helps in ingestion and extreme tiredness.
- People noticed enhanced creative tendencies after consuming Noopept/Piracetam. Easily available for personal usage.
- People find more joy in exploring new opportunities and possibilities and great drive to complete tasks after consuming Piracetam/Noopept.
Personal use / Clinical use
Noopept are legally approved nootropic product. It has not yet been adopted for clinical usage but can be imported for personal usage with prescription in-person and without prescription through online delivery order.
The nootropic can be used and possessed legally in the United States. Specifically, it is not banned in Australia, Canada and the UK.
In addition, individual should always check whether it is legal to take or purchase the product in particular country while traveling. Some product may be regulated by law in some countries. But nootropic is considered as the athletic-enhancing product for personal usage and is not yet been adopted for clinical use so it could be availed by individual in-person.
