Aniracetam: A Nootropic Supplement for Brain Boosting Cognitive Enhancement

From Organic Newsroom:

Aniracetam is a powerful synthetic compound in the Racetam family, and is considered to be one of many powerful Nootropics—or cognitive enhancing compound. Studies have shown it to reduce anxiety and depression [1], enhance memory and cognition [2], and increase the efficiency of AMPA receptor sites in the brain [3]. Additionally, this powerful Cognitive supplement has been suggested as being able to address several major health conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s Disease [4] as well as fetal alcohol syndrome [5].

Contrary to many other Nootropics, even those within the Racetam family, Aniracetam is a fat-soluble compound—thus able to be taken at lower dosages while still being effective. For instance a typical recommended dosage of Aniracetam is 750mg twice a day, compared to doses of Piracetam—which can range as high as 4800mg per day [6].

Aniracetam shows potential as a treatment for CNS disorders, memory impairment disorders, and has been shown to increase learning, problem solving, and overall mental energy.

While it should be noted that Aniracetam is a synthetic compound, which has been sold as a prescription medication in countries such as France, it isn’t approved for the treatment of any disease or health conditions by the FDA. The implications of this current regulatory perspective on Aniracetam is that the compound is able to be found fairly regularly for sale on the consumer market, as a dietary supplement. Dietary supplements are able to be sold completely legally, but without any claims of ability to treat medical conditions.

Benefits of Aniracetam

Decreasing desensitization of AMPA receptor sites, fat-soluable bio-availability, CNS disorder treatments—these are all great aspects of Aniracetam, but are hard to conceptualize as practical benefits. While it’s certainly beneficial to understand the inner bio-workings of how this compound travels through your body, it …
