One of the champions of the -racetam group, Aniracetam is a powerful cognitive performance enhancer. It creates a period of lucid, focussed mental clarity in which anxieties are reduced, memory is made precise, and thought is concentrated. This allows for greater problem solving capabilities, verbal fluency, and an enhanced attention span.
With a relatively short duration of 2-4h, Aniracetam can be taken as needed to aid in high-pressure tasks, or throughout the day for steady benefits. It is well studied, and has a long record of safe usage, perfect for periods of intense productivity.
Capsules per day: 1 – 3
Effect onset: 30 – 60 minutes
Effect duration: Short-duration cognitive enhancer, with a peak effect duration of 2 hours. Some benefits reported up to 5 hours later.
Extended use: Can be taken daily. Racetams rarely need to be cycled, but if a reduced effect is noticed, taking 1 week off will avoid building tolerance.
- Best taken shortly after eating.
- If this product causes headaches 250-500mg of Citicoline or keeping well hydrated may counteract this.
Alcohol note: Aniracetam tends to intensify the effects and rate of alcohol intoxication: two drinks might leave you feeling like you had four or more, including amplified sedative effects and loss of impulse control. For this reason, it is advised not to combine this product with Alcohol.
