Product Description

Recommended Dosage: 1-3g
Directions: Piracetam is water soluble. Do not use if you are pregnant/breastfeeding. Extremely rare side effects may include allergic reactions. Consult a doctor prior to using. By using our products, you agree to our terms & conditions.
Piracetam was developed by Romanian chemist, Corneliu E. Giurgea in 1964. It was created by converting 2-pyrrolidinone into an amide. Piracetam was the first racetam developed and has a long history of use in the medical field. Although it has been observed to have medical benefits, it is not registered in North America and is used off label as a nootropic.

Mechanism of Action

Piracetam’s mechanism of action is not fully understood. It is a cyclic derivative of GABA, yet GABA receptors and metabolism appear to not be affected. It is neither, a sedative or a stimulant but is known to influence cognitive ability. Piracetam is also believed to be a vasodilator and a circulatory agent but this is not believed to be its main nootropic action.

The general consensus is that Piracetam influences the AMPA and NMDA receptor sites. These receptors are very important in learning and memory processes. It is also known that it affects the Acetylcholine neurotransmitter and the ACh receptor sites. Overall Neurotransmission seems to be improved and this is believed to be caused by modulation of ion channels or carriers.

Piracetam Uses (Medical)

Piracetam is used in some countries as a medical agent and is administered for a wide range of purposes. Its primary medical use is as a neuro-protective agent before or after stroke. The substance is believed to reduce the risk of ischemic stroke as well as minimize post-stroke damages to the brain. It is also an anti-coagulant and anti-thrombotic agent which is often used safety in conjunction with other therapies.

There have been many studies on treatment with Piracetam for neurological disorders. Many of these studies have shown positive results but not enough to approve them as treatments in the medical field. For instance, there has been evidence in studies for effectiveness in improving symptoms in Alzheimer’s and Dementia patients. Although, symptoms for these patients were often improved, it is not an approved therapy because it has not been shown to fully reverse the conditions or take the place of other approved drugs and therapies.

For these reasons, Piracetam is used mainly off-label. It has proven to be fairly safe, with low toxicity, side effects and drug interactions. Evidence shows it may have validity in treating symptoms of Dyslexia and a host of learning disabilities and neurological disorders but this should not be relied on as therapy without consultation of a licensed medical practitioner.

Piracetam Benefits

Piracetam has been used for decades as an off label nootropic agent. It has been observed to be effective in increasing: cognition and memory, learning, focus and reaction times but these results seem to vary. Below are some of the benefits that have been reported off label and in medical studies.

  • Increased Memory
  • Improved Learning
  • Greater Focus
  • Heightened Sensory Function
  • Reduced Anxiety/Depression
  • Improved Vasodilation
  • Reduced Brain Trauma

One benefit that has been widely reported is an increase in sensory perception. This is likely due to the Increase in the Acetylcholine neurotransmitter and receptor efficiency. Some people say Piracetam is effective as an anti-depressant agent but has not been approved as a treatment. It may have anti-anxiety and depressant benefits in some users.

Piracetam, as well as other racetams have been cited to act as a brain protectant but should not be used as a primary protective agent. These results may or may not be caused by improved vasodilation. Piracetam is believed to reduce free radicals in the brain that caused oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can be a cause of cholinergic damages that can lead to Alzheimer’s and Dementia as well as other neurological disorders.

Piracetam Safety, Tolerance & Drug Interactions

Piracetam has been shown to have very limited side effects and drug interactions. Side effects can occur but this is usually common in higher doses or in individuals who are sensitive to the substance. There has been limited data to suggest Piracetam has led to fatalities or serious health complications. Below are some of the common side effects that can be common in higher dosages.

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Gastrointestinal Issues
  • Depression

Some of these common cognitive side effects have been theorized to be caused by ACh receptor site “burn out”. This is said to be reduced by supplementation with a choline source, like Alpha GPC or CDP Choline. This is just a theory and if you experience these side effects it is best to discontinue use and seek medical counsel advice.

Drug interactions with Piracetam seem to be limited. If you are on any other medication, always consult with a doctor before use and avoid using higher than recommended dosages. Piracetam should not been relied on as a treatment for any serious medical condition.

Tolerance with the substance seems very low. Often, the substance can be taken for months without any notice of tolerance build up but this can vary. Tolerance has not been shown to lead to unpleasant withdrawal symptoms but this can vary as well and should always be evaluated. Some racetam users will “cycle” Piracetam to reduce tolerance.

Piracetam Stack

Piracetam goes well in combination with other nootropics. This combination is often referred to as a nootropic stack. Naturally, it goes well with a choline source and this is always recommended. Piracetam also stacks well with all the other racetams. Some choose to stack it with other racetams or selected ones. One advantage is that it is fairly cheap as compared to the other racetam nootropics. Piracetam and Aniracetam is a good stack and is a very cost effective combination.

    This nootropic is really solid. One of the best I have ever tried. The things it helped me: memory, focus, thinking clearly and also with the whole cognition. The thing I did wrong was that I didn’t take enough Alpha GPC, so I had some pretty bad headaches. At the beginning I was kinda disapointed, but the effects were better from day to day. I have to say I’m really surprised, since one day I played with https://nootbot.ai/ and in a joke ordered it. I’M IMPRESSED BY PIRACETAM 😀

  2. :


    I really found this helpful for thinking clearly, memory, and cognitive processing speed. Starting with a low dose (.5 g), I settled on taking 4.5-5 g once daily in the morning, dissolved in water. The biggest, noticeable difference was when I stopped using piracetam, and felt a real sluggishness in my thoughts with slower reaction times. Then I realized how much it had been helping me on a daily basis. It’s definitely a valuable product.

  3. :


    Could use some direction… Experimented with Piracatam and Alpha GPC for about 2-3 weeks. From 800 mg pira to 5 g to back to 1 gm. I have experienced insane amount of neck pain on this combo so far. I need some directions on how to use it. I have faith in this.

    Peak nootropics is an excellent place to get nootropics from. The customer service is great. 🙂

  4. :


    started this about 2 weeks ago. very subtle but a great addition to my stack at a very cheap and affordable price with super fast delivery!

  5. :


    started this about 2 weeks ago. The effects havent fully kicked in yet but its a great addition to my stack and very affordable and super fast delivery time. I must also say that anytime i had any questions about the products they were all quickly answered and detailed!

  6. :


    Super happy with the product! I’ve just finished my first 500 gr. bag and am going to order the next one straight away.

    The positive effect on concentration and clearness is (at least in my case) definitely noticeable. Therefor productivity also clearly is enhanced.

  7. :


    Piracetam is awesome! I’ve taken it in the past and had good results. I stopped taking it a while back and started adderall which gave me a nervous feeling and caused dehydration. Piracetam it’s so much better in regards to side effects which are none. I do build a bit of tolerance, but cycling off seems to take care of that problem. Piracetam has also helped me
    with depression. I recommend this as an excellent altrrnative to adderall, for me anyway. I’ve not had any problems with Peak Nootropics.

  8. :


    This product is great along with the others I have purchased. Im so excited that I finally found a reputable company to buy my nootropics from and could not be happier!

  9. :


    The piracetam experiment is going good so far and it seems to get better everyday. It is also pretty cheap and lasts along time if only taking around 4.5g/day.

    The Best Value on Piracetam

    This brand of Piracetam is the best value I’ve been able to find on Piracetam, which is a good thing because I like to take a lot of Piracetam. After I finish this 500 Gram bag I intend to order the 1000 Gram supply from Peak Nootropics.

    For several days before taking it I went on a stimulant cleanse; no coffee, no green tea. So I could get myself back to a baseline of energy. About 15 minutes after taking my first dose of Piracetam I felt myself slide into that focused, productive mindset ‘zone’ that Biohackers love. I stayed in that zone for about 4 hours.

    The most distinctive feature of this Piracetam is it’s bad taste, originally when I took Piracetam I took it in pill form so I didn’t taste it at all, but the taste is NOT very good. One of my friends described it as cocaine mixed with laundry detergent. I tried mixing it with a couple of health drinks but nothing improved the taste so I would just recommend mixing it with water or tea and drinking it really fast. Skull it! Piracetam is water soluble so it doesn’t clump up in water, it dissolves really uniformly in whatever drink you mix it. As you’ll read in thousands of other reviews online about Piracetam, It’s bad taste is just a part of taking it in powdered form.

    I guess the trade off is the price, 500 Grams of Piracetam in pill form would cost $180 whereas this bag only costs $40. So I guess the production process of putting Piracetam in pills and pill bottles is a lot of work over just sending out bags of powder. I prefer to save the $140!

    I should note that I’ve been on and off Piracetam for 2 years now, I will take it daily for like 60 days then go off it for 30 days while I’m trying a different Nootropic or waiting on a delivery. People who haven’t taken Nootropics always ask me if they are addictive, whenever I cycle off them I’m very attentive to signs of addiction withdrawal like I’ve experienced to moderate degrees when I quit smoking or the multiple times I’ve quit drinking (I believe in doing intermittent period of sobriety).
    I’ve never had any even remote signs of addiction withdrawal when going off Piracetam
    I just increase my intake of coffee and green tea.

    I should note that taking it with an Acetylcholine precursor is important, if you take a high dosage like I do without choline or Alpha GPC you can get a little bit of a headache. You will feel a little bit of pressure behind your ears, but I really had to do a lot to get this affect.

    Several times I tried taking it later in the evening and had no problem sleeping, which is nice.

    I drank coffee on it several times, not because the Piracetam was insufficient but just because I live in Colombia and we have really good coffee shops here.

    A friend of mine delivered this to me and had to pass through international customs in the United States, Mexico and Colombia. None of the customs agents of these respective countries had any questions or bothered him about transporting a bag of white powder across international borders.

    I can’t tell a big difference between this and other Piracetam brands I’ve tried except for that it is powdered and whole lot cheaper. So if you are looking for the most economical smart drug option out there, this is probably it.

    Piracetam is one of those supplements that does NOTHING for about 10% – 15% of the people who use it. Just because everyone’s own biological constitution is different. This is why I actually emailed Peak Nootropics to find out specificially about the money back guarantee; they do have a 30 day money back money guarantee.

    So if you are interested in trying Piracetam I would recommend trying this brand but if you end up being in the 10% – 15% that are unresponsive to Piracetam definitely take advantage of the Money Back Guarantee.

    2nd time ordering from them , piracetam is the all star classic nootropic for me , as it really helps especially since me and my brother have ADD , it enables us to focus.. no one is serving it up better than peak nootropics! MHO..

  12. :


    I started stacking Piracetam, Citocoline, and Adrafinil to reduce my dependency on Adderal. And the effect has been incredible. I was barely able to get out of bed without stimulant support. I tried amino supplements, but they all gave me terrible anxiety. I immediately noticed a change when I started this stack. Additionally, Adderal had bad side effects (complete loss of appetite) and it did not reduce my social anxiety, mood, or increase my physical energy. This has made me feel what I imagine normal feels like. The service was expedient and stress free. Thanks PN!

  13. :


    Piracetam is an an amazing stuff that will give you focus and energy. Pretty affordable and very good customer service also.

  14. :


    Fast shipping and fantastic customer service!

  15. :


    Very quick delivery of products at a reasonable price. PeakNootropics and their Piracetam have far exceeded my expectations. Will continue purchasing Piracetam and many other racetam’s through PeakNootropics.

  16. :


    Highest quality Piracetam at a great value. Fast shipping, quality packaging, including measured scoop. Found this vendor through Limitless Mindset, an informative nootropics youtube channel. Also found very informative articles right here on Peak Nootropics blog. Will definitely order from here again! Thank you Peak Nootropics!

    Works well to keep me focused. I had to stop taking for some time, and really noticed the difference when I started up again.

  18. (verified owner):


    I have been a customer of Peak Nootropics since 2014. The company has delivered as advertised and I don’t have any complaints. I really like the available options to order in bulk.

    I mainly use Piracetam, Aniracetam, and Alpha GPC for mood and cognitive improvement. I have experienced improvements as the products claim. I believe that these types of products are a safer alternative to many of the prescription products available. It is important to pay close attention to correct recommended dosing to maximize/realize the benefits.

  19. :


    I have really noticed an improvement in my memory and this product helps me focus like nothing else. I will continue to buy from PeakNootropics!

  20. (verified owner):


    Ive been buying from Peak Nootrpics for over a year and Piracteam has made a big difference to my life. Very good product.

  21. (verified owner):


    Packaged and shipped professionally. Mixes easily. Purity is obvious. Will buy again when in stock.

  22. (verified owner):


    A snafu on the shipping, but when I emailed them, they were very quickly responsive and made sure my product was shipped out immediately. Piracetam working well. Came with a scoop, but there is variability in density, so would recommend a good scale. Taste is very bitter, so you might want a capsule machine as well.

  23. (verified owner):


    Very good product. I think it may be best price one can find. I’d recommend Peak Nootropics to my friend!

  24. (verified owner):


    Great product! Piracetam is a great nootropic to take everyday. It really helped when I got off of adderall. I get about 125 servings out of the 500gram bag so its an excellent deal too.

  25. (verified owner):


    Good, consistent, clean product. I’ve been using Piracetam from Peak for over a year now and have come to rely on it as an essential element of my daily stack.

  26. (verified owner):


    As someone with no experience with nootropics, I decided to start with the recommended Piracetam. I’ve joined it with choline bitartrate. The only thing I can report thus far is a generally increased feeling of lucidity through my days. Still, I am anxious to experiment with other more powerful nootropics.

  27. (verified owner):


    What I really like with Piracetam is what it is well studied and considered to be a very safe nootropic.

    I seem to need less than most people to have noticeable effect of nootropics etc. Then it comes to piracetam though, I can easily take many grams and less than one gram I don’t notice much of. I suspect that doses of 800 mg or so more comes from that that the size of a typical pill. I think people sometimes underestimate the difference in “strength” for piracetam and some other racetams.

    Nevertheless, piracetam is still cheap per dose at least if you buy it as powder. As a bonus you get rid of fillers and such in the pills.

    I think it is a very good idea to get smart drugs from a reputable source, which provides third party lab results.

  28. (verified owner):


    Cannot recommend this nootropic enough.

    And for everyone who thinks they’re “non-responsive”… take a break and then try again, it is so worth it.

    Overall, I’m completely satisfied with PeakNootropics and they’re a company who I will definitely buy from again.

  29. (verified owner):


    if you’re looking for an edge in life, this is it…great product.

    I have been ordering Piracetam and many
    other products from Peak for going on 2 years and am very pleased with their performance across the board. Any information requested is promptly responded to (unlike other such companies I’ve dealt with); the products are pure and fresh; sent in light-weight envelopes via a
    reasonably priced postal service (I live in Asia) and are reasonably priced.
    I highly recommend Peak.

    Excellent product, good price and the delivery was fast. I’m new to the world of nootropics, but I have already noticed a positive effect on my short term memory and verbal ability.

  32. (verified owner):


    This stuff is AWESOME!!! Been using it for about 2 months now. It has helped me so much

  33. :


    Definitely best bang for buck nootropic I have come across. I take 4-5 g in the morning with my supplements and bulletproof coffee and stay switched on and focused for the whole day. On nights when I’m going out with friends, I’ll take another 4 g with 1 g Aniracetam and some choline. Really puts me in a great focused, happy, feel good mindset for socializing and talking to girls at bars.

    Great results from this product!!!

    I’m glad I found a reliable place to buy all my nootropics. The prices are very reasonable and i’m looking forward to being a regular customer. I will tell everyone about how good these products are.

    I have used Peak Nootropics for multiple purchases for almost a year now. Each time I have been completely satisfied. Shipping, product quality and packaging are excellent. I will continue buying.

  38. (verified owner):


    Great product! I have taken Piracetam on and off for several years now. It’s become really hard to find, I use to buy it on Amazon but they won’t sell it anymore. Great product and EXCELLENT vendor. Please don’t leave the market for selling this product! I’ve tried many other nootropics and nothing compares to the price and effectiveness of Piracetam, IMO.

  39. :


    Amazing stuff! Highly recommend a pill maker for this due to the large quantity needed. Great price and top quality manufacturer.

  40. (verified owner):


    PeakNootropics is my go-to source for P’tam. The ‘grandaddy’ of all smart drugs, Piracetam is awesome as part of a stack (modafinil- piracetam-choline-fish oil) for example. Choline is a must, and fish oil really brings out the best effects of Piracetam.

    PeakNootropics quality is A+
    shipping was fast

    best quality I have found online!
    best price too?!
    PeakNootropics for the win!
