Aniracetam Piracetam Stack Effect
Aniracetam and piracetam are part of the racetam family, but they are structurally just different enough to have profound impacts together. Piracetam is the original nootropic that was discovered as part of the racetam family and it has a long lasting effect on memory and learning. Many people take it only one time per day and can feel the differences lasting in the body for many hours. The half life of piracetam is extended.
In comparison, aniracetam is fast acting and enters the bloodstream and brain quickly. This often leads to a stimulating effect with added concentration, attention, and focus. This is important because piracetam does not often have the same effect on people. By combining the best of these two racetams, you can see memory, learning benefits from both, but the added concentration element of aniracetam.
Studies on both drugs show increased memory learning capabilities. In addition to long term memory and learning benefits, aniracetam can stimulate the AMPA receptor and communication across the corpus callosum, which leads to a heightened sense of focus.
Stacking Tips and Dosage Recommendations
If you are going to combine aniracetam and piracetam together, it is a good idea to also take a choline supplement. Both aniracetam and piracetam help to increase the uptake of acetylcholine in certain parts of your brain. If you do not have enough of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter, it is possible for you to see some side effects (such as the headache) that are avoidable with a choline supplement.
Also, make sure that you take slightly smaller doses of both aniracetam and piracetam when you take them together as it is not needed to take a full dose. Of course, you need to determine the right dose for you, but it is a good idea to keep this in mind so that you can get the best results. Start off with around 3000 mg of piracetam and the you can have 1 – 2 grams of aniracetam in addition. This is a good starting place, but you can even start lower if you are a beginner.
Even though you can take these doses, it is important to spread them out over the course of an entire day. There is no need to take the doses at one point in the day and, in fact, it is recommended against. Because aniracetam has a short half life in the body, it is a good idea to take aniracetam often throughout the day so that you can see the concentration benefits.
