Why Aniracetam Capsules?
The racetam family dominates the world of nootropics, but each racetam comes with its own particular benefits. Aniracetam is not only a great cognitive booster, but it is also an anxiolytic. So if you are stressed out about a major exam, aniracetam can deliver a one-two punch to improve your cognition as well as relieve your anxiety.
So why aniracetam capsules? The racetams are notoriously bitter in taste. By taking aniracetam in capsule form, you can avoid the bitter flavor and still reap all of the benefits.
What are Aniracetam Capsules?
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.
Aniracetam is a derivitive of piracetam, the prototypical racetam. However, Aniracetam is significantly more potent, requiring a much smaller dosage than piracetam. Aniracetam is also an ampakine, which means it can improve your focus and alertness as well as expedite learning and memory.
Aniracetam Capsule Side Effects and Benefits
While the direct mechanisms are not well understood, Aniracetam has repeatedly shown to be favorite and to have low toxicity. The most common side effect reported is headache. This is common with racetams, and can be alleviated by taking choline.
Aniracetam Capsule Dosage
One capsule contains 325mg of aniracetam. Individuals should take 2 capsules per day.
As mentioned above, many people benefit from taking choline to support and boost the effects of aniracetam while simultaneously avoiding headaches. Users can take Aniracetam with CDP-choline, Alpha GPC, choline bitartrate, or any other choline product.
