piracetam about nootropics

Here we will learn about Piracetam, the first nootropic synthesized. I’ll go over what it does, how it works, and why it might not work for you.

What is Piracetam?

Piracetam is the first nootropic drug recorded to be synthesized in a lab. It was created by Belgian pharmaceutical group UCB by Dr. Corneliu Giugea in 1964. The original purpose of piracetam was to help people who suffer from cognitive degeneration (such as dementia and Alzeimer’s).

Studies for these applications proved to be favorable. This led to more substances being synthesized and discovered. The substances became known as “racetams”, with piracetam being the most widely known and researched. Its popularity has led Piracetam to be one of the best known nootropics for beginners.

Why You Should Try Piracetam

Piracetam is easily one of the first nootropics anyone should try if they are looking to experiment with cognitive enhancement.

What piracetam does is increase blood flow to the brain to increase oxygen levels and better manage your brain cells’ ATP synthesis and mitochondria.

The way piracetam interacts with your neurons actually boosts your alertness, comprehension ability, memory, and concentration. It also has anti-pain benefits.

I still remember my first batch of Piracetam many years ago. I got a big clear bag and had no idea how to measure it out. You want to take about 1500mg to 4800mg a day, split into about three dosages.

Eventually I got the hang of it and started my first stack (piracetam + phenibut). Of course this was back when I didn’t know anything about nootropics.

I will leave a short quote of some of my piracetam thoughts below:

Piracetam allows to you focus much more intensely.

Whenever I use it I feel it within 15 minutes to an hour.

Piracetam makes you very attentive and puts you in a good mood. When I take it, I feel as if I’m getting a warm hug and I find myself smiling for no reason.

In a one-on-one conversation, you will feel intensely intrigued in what the other person has to say. You will make them feel like the most important, interesting person/people in the room. And they love that.

Overall, I enjoyed it but I don’t have much to say about it since I moved onto more racetams pretty quickly.

Why You Shouldn’t Try Piracetam

When I started using piracetam several years ago, there were several things I didn’t particularly like about it:

Piracetam requires much bigger dosages than other nootropics. While noopept dosages were only milligrams, a regular dose of piracetam measured out into grams. It’s not even the more potent than many nootropics with smaller dosages.

Piracetam is also one of the nastiest nootropics I’ve ever tasted. It’s been over a year since I’ve tried it but I can still remember the unpleasant, synthetic taste on my tongue.

Piracetam has side effects such as brain fog, irritability, and tiredness. Now I personally have only gotten headaches and irritability off of piracetam. But it was much earlier on when I wasn’t more careful measuring out my dosages since piracetam is pretty brain-friendly.
