As nootropics experts, the most frequent question we get is “what are the best nootropics?” This is followed closely by “do nootropics work?” and “is there a Limitless pill?” The answers to these questions could take a lifetime to explain in full-depth, but most new smart drug enthusiasts don’t have the time or the patience.
Therefore, we have decided to help Racetam.org by providing a high quality overview of not only racetams and how they might fit into your stack, but also a general nootropics guide that will provide a high quality of information to help you get started. This is Part 1 of a series to help you get started.
Piracetam, Aniracetam and the Rest
One of the favorite places for people to start is with racetams. Specifically, people like the memory formation and retention aspects of these drugs, which are not really offered by many others. We will list the different racetams that you are probably very familiar with just as a refresher course for you to consider.
Piracetam – This is the nootropic that started it all. Piracetam is the first synthetic derivative of GABA that was created in the 1960s and 70s in order to treat age related memory loss, senile dementia, and other traumatic brain experiences. The Romanian scientists who developed the drug dubbed it the first “nootropic” compound, which is where we get the name today.
This smart drug is one of the least potent and can require up to 4-6000 mg per day in order to see a benefit. That doesn’t mean it is not worthwhile, however. It is a great beginner option because there are people who want to start small and not get ahead of themselves. For this purpose, a dose of piracetam is a great starting point.
Aniracetam – Another great racetam drug, this is one of the second options that was available for experimentation. The studies show that unlike piracetam, aniracetam is a faster acting racetam drug. It does not last as long in the bloodstream, but it is potent and stimulating in most situations.
Oxiracetam – The third most popular racetam is called oxiracetam and has more research and evidence for neuroprotection than the others. Whereas piracetam is known and touted to improve memory formation, oxiracetam is known as a great neuroprotective that can help to halt the degradation of the neurological connections in the brain and in some cases even reverse it.
Many models show that oxiracetam is a great drug for the purpose of protecting your brain into old age. It is also a powerful tool that will help if you are trying to stimulate or improve your memory as well.
Phenylpiracetam – If you are thinking about taking a stimulant that isn’t in the form of caffeine or an amphetamine (like Adderall), then phenylpiracetam is your best bet. This drug is helpful in improving memory formation, but it also helps to create connections faster and build a much stronger foundation for your concentration and focus.
This is so powerful there have been substance bans by the Olympic development and anti-doping committee, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t use it. In fact, it is so powerful that you should probably use it in conjunction with other racetams so that you can have the memory advantage you desire in addition to the stimulation.
Wondering where is noopept? Well, the reality is, noopept is not a racetam! It is definitely similar in the effects, but quite different in the structure. In the next article we are going to pick up where we left off and try to create something to guide you through the more holistic and natural options. You might be able to tell whether or not it is effective by the way you feel, but you should also include tracking metrics. We’ll walk you through all the steps if you want until the next round!
