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.



Piracetam is the first compound developed under the racetam class and was synthetically created by Belgium lab UCB Pharma. Of the racetam class, this is perhaps the most discussed and utilized nootropic. Its mechanism of action is poorly understood, but many speculate that it improves cognition without stimulating or sedating properties. In other words, it doesn't seem to affect a person's arousal. It is a modulator of the AMPA receptor and may work on various ion channels within the brain to excite neurons. Additionally, it improves acetylcholine functioning and may influence NMDA glutamate receptors. There is some evidence that it increases the amount of blood flow and oxygen to the brain. It is not approved in the United States for any condition, but is approved in the United Kingdom. In recent years it has gained popularity among students as a way to increase academic performance.
