So what is Aniracetam?

Just like Piracetam, Aniracetam capsules are a nootropic supplement which was first developed in the 1970’s (almost a decade after Piracetam was discovered) by the company named Hoffman-La Roche. As the name implies, it is another nootropic drug that belongs to the racetam family. This category of medicines is generally for cognitive processes. Aniracetam not only has an effect on the neurological condition by the psychology of the user as well. After numerous types of research and experiments, scientists have concluded that aniracetam is a ‘well tolerated with minor side effects and a very low level of toxicity’. To know more about it, let us have a look at the pros and cons that come with it.

The benefits of using Aniracetam

Other than that, the user will also experience an alteration in the depressing mood as he feels motivated and desires to socialize more. It works as an anti-depressant and an anti-anxiety pill, enhancing mood effects. Mental energy will be improved such that one will not feel any mental fatigue and concentration will be enhanced so that the user is able to pay attention to small details for a longer period of time. Moreover, it increases sensitivity to the Glutamate Neurotransmitter.

The cons of using Aniracetam

Regular doses of Aniracetam may cause headaches in some users. Since it is fat soluble it has to be taken with milk, fish oil or after a proper meal. It also has limited clinical data and the powder, if taken in a large quantity, will have a very bitter taste that is difficult to swallow. The reported overall bioavailability of aniracetam is 8.6-11.4 percent.

Just like every other medicine and drug, aniracetam too comes with a few side-effects. However, the small list of adverse effects can be overlooked when it comes to the benefits that it has to offer. There is perhaps no other drug available in the market that can combat so many different diseases simultaneously. It is generally mixed in certain quantities with Piracetam, as this enhances its effects a great deal.
