Read our Phenylpiracetam Review

Phenylpiracetam is derived from its parent compound Piracetam but with the addition of a Phenyl ring thus making it easier to cross the blood-brain barrier. It is believed to be 30-60 times more potent than Piracetam and was created in the early 1980s in Russia where it is still used as a prescription medication. It is regarded as a stimulant and has been documented as having the potential to improve athletic performance due to increased Noradrenaline levels.

It is considered to help improve brain injuries and reduces amnesia. Moreover, it has a low potential for abuse and is unregulated in the United States. An interesting effect of this drug is that it increases a person's ability to handle extreme temperatures.

Aniracetam is a nootropic supplement under the racetam class that is regarded as being significantly more powerful than Piracetam. In addition to the cognitive enhancement it provides, it also acts as an anxiolytic and improves mood, memory and focus. This is likely achieved through its effects on the D2 dopamine receptors, acetylcholine receptors, and 5-HT2A receptors. However, it is still under investigational usage for treating various neurodegenerative disorders. It also has an effect on the AMPA receptor and is a drug that is thought to offer benefits for individuals with neurodegenerative disorders. Throughout European countries, it can be obtained as a prescription drug, but has never received any approval by the FDA for usage in the U.S. Aniracetam is fat soluble.
