The racetams are a staple of the nootropic world due to their long history of success and their relative inexpensiveness. Their glowing reputation attests to their ability to help support cognition.
There are a variety of racetam nootropics. This selection offers customers the ability to pick the one that works best for them. Everyone will have their preference and one racetam that is often cited as a perennial fan-favorite in Aniracetam.
Aniracetam is fat-soluble and will therefore NOT mix well with water. It is best to take fat-soluble racetams after a meal or with a fat source such as fish oil. Your body will not absorb or benefit from a fat-soluble racetam on an empty stomach.
Like the other racetams, Aniracetam is a powerful nootropic. One study showed it can enhance cognitive test scores by as much as 30%. Because of this, individuals often take it for cognitive enhancement.
One of Aniracetam's main functions is to interact with the glutamate system. Glutamate is a neurotransmitter that influences learning and memory, but your brain quickly becomes desensitized to it. This means that you need more and more glutamate to get the same effect.
Aniracetam decrease sensitivity to glutamate, meaning that the same amount of glutamate has more effectiveness. In this way, Aniracetam can enhance learning and memory.
While the direct mechanisms are not well understood, as is the case with the racetam family in general, Aniracetam has repeatedly shown to be a nootropic fan favorite.
Recommended dosage of aniracetam is two rounded 1/8 tsp scoops (750mg) once daily.
As with other racetams, many people suggest taking choline to help support and boost the beneficial Aniracetam side effects while helping you avoid headaches. Users can take Aniracetam with CDP-choline, Alpha GPC, choline bitartrate, or any other choline product.
"This is a good product for helping you focus and have a clear mind. I take it with coconut oil and citicoline CDP, taurine, acetyl-L-carnitine, Huperzine A and L-Tyrosine. I have a lot of energy and can recall a lot of stuff that previously was difficult to remember. I think that this product is highly under rated. I alternate it with phenylpiracetam which I like a little better because it lasts longer and the effects are more pronounced. I give it a two thumbs up."- Gregory A.
"I have nothing but good things to say about ani. It's been apart of my stack for quite a few months now. I mainly looked into it for its help with social situations. I can definitely see a difference in that aspect of myself. I usually blush or can't look people in the eyes or am easily embarrassed. Whenever I forget to take my ani, these effects are more pronounced without it. When I do take it though, it's a lot lesser of an extent. It definitely helps your vocabulary as well. I use words now that I never used before. My favorite mood racetam for sure."- Roseann C.
"It was a good product, it didn't have the affects I was hoping for, but I found after mixing it with 10mg of Noopet that I was able to concentrate and focus. I was much more motivated throughout the day to where I had to TRY and be lazy. Of course the product came fine, the only thing is that it is difficult to drink because mixing it with just water is nearly impossible. Protein powder, noopept, and aniracetam mixed together in a blinder works much better than trying to stir it."– Christopher M.
"This product definitely makes one just a touch more aware to their environment! It helps to focus my thoughts. The first day, I had a headache until my fat supply (fish oil) began circulating through the body. It might have not been corollary but pretty sure that it was. Once that was addressed, it certainly does make a difference! I just felt more ability to concentrate on material and make connections among concepts with greater focus- the material seemed to resonate and recall was better. It is a subtle adjustment to your routine and for the price, definitely worth a shot! Do not expect an altered state of consciousness or anything, just better attention span. Thank you!"– Brian
"I take it along with fish oil and a few other nootropics. I tried starting at 500mg, and could feel the effects but they came with a headache. I was taking a choline source, but possibly not enough. I reduced the amount i took to 200mg a day, as I am a much smaller person (a little under 120lbs), and increased the amount of choline supplement i take, and its effect are much more subtle, but it's been a helpful aid to focus daily. Definitely not something you should take by itself, or on an empty stomach, but if you balance it properly, and your body has a positive response to it, it's certain worth keeping around. As for Powder City, which I discovered about two months ago, they have everything in one place that I used to have to order from separate sources, and their prices are some of the lowest I've found with care and quality in their product."– Johnny
"By itself, Aniracetam is very Theanine,-like, but with an edge. Crisper vision, simultaneously calming and focusing. It metabolizes into a GABA-analogue, so this makes sense. I've found it to be rather chameleonic, however; combining it with racetams, cholines, and/or ALCAR can give it a pretty blunt kick, so best to experiment. My double n-back scores went up substantially on a Piracetam/Idebenone/Aniracetam/Centrophenoxine stack, but I also felt like a hyper-alert bruxism bot. One of the smartest things I ever did noot-wise was begin a Uridine/DHA stack and build my supplementation around it: D3, Magnesium, a potent B vitamin, phosphatidylserine. I took racetams *years* ago, but never with the same effects as recently. Not only do I not get headaches or drowsiness, or brain fog, but the effects seem much more dependable and consistent. I think I prefer Aniracetam over Piracetam because it feels a little less schizo and less taxing on the adrenals. (Powder City rocks, by the way. Wish I had such a dependable and reputable one-stop shop when I was still in college!)"- George M.
