A derivative from Piracetam this is one of my more preferred nootropics on the market. Why? Of course because it’s additional benefits apart from your standard nootropic benefits. First made in the 1970s by Hoffman-La Roche and chemically known as (1(4-methoxybenzoyl)-2-pyrrolidinone) it is 6 times more powerful than Piracetam. This nootropic is considered an ampakine nootropic due to its ability to effectively reduce anxiety.
Since its creation it has been tested on Alzheimer patients for its advance improvement in cognitive functioning. Just like Piracetam, this nootropic plays the same important function of increasing the transportation of acetylcholine in the brain thus vastly improving memory retention and learning ability.
Why and how should I take it?
Now of course with Aniracetam memory and learning abilities are greatly improved but it also has additional benefits. This nootropic is ampakine in nature which alleviates anxiety and improves mood. The way it does this is by binding to serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitters and inhibiting them from breaking down while at the same time bringing these two neurotransmitters back to normal levels. This nootropic varies from other nootropics due to the fact that it increases right brain functioning. Many users not only experience cognitive enhancement along with reduced anxiety and improvement in mood, they report feeling a enhancement of social confidence, increased creativity, and many have even reported stronger and vivider vision.
Another way Aniracetam increases brain performance is the influence it has on the transmission of Glutamate. The Glutamate is responsible for neural activation in the brain. What Aniracetam does is stimulates the kainate receptors and AMPA, two important receptors that are known to be responsible for new memory creation and storage of information.
How to stack Aniracetam
Recommended dosage for Aniracetam can range anywhere from 1000mg-2000mg daily. You have the choice to split the dosage down anywhere from 2 to 3 times per day. Just like the other nootropics it’s very wise to take Aniracetam with good choline source such as Alpha GPC or CDP Choline because of its effect of increasing acetylcholine in the brain maximizing the effect of the nootropics. An ideal ratio for taking Aniracetam and a choline supplement will be 2.5:1. So if you plan on taking 1500mg of Aniracetam make sure to take 600mg of a good choline source. Scale it up or down based on your Aniracetam dosage. Oh and by the way Aniracetam is a fat-soluble nootropic so make sure to take it with something that has fat for maximum results.
A good stack of Aniracetam and Alpha GPC will look like this:
- 1500 mg of Aniracetam
- 600 mg of Alpha GPC
A great Aniracetam stack you can try:
- 1500 of Piracetam
- 500 of Aniracetam
- 500 of Oxiracetam
- 300 of Alpha GPC
