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.

    5*
    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!

  6. :

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

  7. :

    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.

  8. :

    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.

    Very happy with my order, enough that I’ve come back to order more for a stack. Will recommend to friends.

  10. :

    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.

  11. :

    Great results from this product!!!

  12. :

    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.

  13. :

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

    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.

  15. :

    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.

  16. :

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

  17. :

    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.

  18. :

    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.

  19. :

    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.

  20. :

    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.

  21. :

    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.

  22. :

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

  23. :

    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.

  24. :

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

  25. :

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

  26. :

    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!

  27. :

    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.

  28. :

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

  29. :

    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!

  30. :

    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.

  31. :

    Fast shipping and fantastic customer service!
    thankyou!
