Piracetam by Peak Nootropics
An excellent value for high qaulity, Pharmaceutical grade powdered Piracetam.
Two questions I get A LOT from people who are new to Biohacking and haven't yet tried smart drugs is:
Which smart drug supplements actually work and have science behind them?
Which Nootropic should I get start with?
Piracetam's mechanism of action is not fully understood. It is a cyclic derivative of GABA, yet GABA receptors and metabolism appear to not be affected. It is neither, a sedative or a stimulant but is known to influence cognitive ability. Piracetam is also believed to be a vasodilator and a circulatory agent but this is not believed to be its main nootropic action.
Piracetam goes well in combination with other nootropics. This combination is often referred to as a nootropic stack. Naturally, it goes well with a choline source and this is always recommended. Piracetam also stacks well with all the other racetams. Some choose to stack it with other racetams or selected ones. One advantage is that it is fairly cheap as compared to the other racetam nootropics. Piracetam and Aniracetam is a good stack is a very cost effective combination.
The Best Value on Piracetam
This brand of Piracetam is the best value I've been able to find on Piracetam, which is a good thing because I like to take a lot of Piracetam. After I finish this 500 Gram bag I intend to order the 1000 Gram supply from Peak Nootropics.
For several days before taking it I went on a stimulant cleanse; no coffee, no green tea. So I could get myself back to a baseline of energy. About 15 minutes after taking my first dose of Piracetam I felt myself slide into that focused, productive mindset 'zone' that Biohackers love. I stayed in that zone for about 4 hours.
The most distinctive feature of this Piracetam is it's bad taste, originally when I took Piracetam I took it in pill form so I didn't taste it at all, but the taste is NOT very good. One of my friends described it as cocaine mixed with laundry detergent. I tried mixing it with a couple of health drinks but nothing improved the taste so I would just recommend mixing it with water or tea and drinking it really fast. Skull it! Piracetam is water soluble so it doesn't clump up in water, it dissolves really uniformly in whatever drink you mix it. As you'll read in thousands of other reviews online about Piracetam, It's bad taste is just a part of taking it in powdered form.
I guess the trade off is the price, 500 Grams of Piracetam in pill form would cost $180 whereas this bag only costs $40. So I guess the production process of putting Piracetam in pills and pill bottles is a lot of work over just sending out bags of powder. I prefer to save the $140!
I should note that I've been on and off Piracetam for 2 years now, I will take it daily for like 60 days then go off it for 30 days while I'm trying a different Nootropic or waiting on a delivery. People who haven't taken Nootropics always ask me if they are addictive, whenever I cycle off them I'm very attentive to signs of addiction withdrawal like I've experienced to moderate degrees when I quit smoking or the multiple times I've quit drinking (I believe in doing intermittent period of sobriety).
I've never had any even remote signs of addiction withdrawal when going off Piracetam
I just increase my intake of coffee and green tea.
I should note that taking it with an Acetylcholine precursor is important, if you take a high dosage like I do without choline or Alpha GPC you can get a little bit of a headache. You will feel a little bit of pressure behind your ears, but I really had to do a lot to get this affect.
Several times I tried taking it later in the evening and had no problem sleeping, which is nice.
I drank coffee on it several times, not because the Piracetam was insufficient but just because I live in Colombia and we have really good coffee shops here.
A friend of mine delivered this to me and had to pass through international customs in the United States, Mexico and Colombia. None of the customs agents of these respective countries had any questions or bothered him about transporting a bag of white powder across international borders.
I can't tell a big difference between this and other Piracetam brands I've tried except for that it is powdered and whole lot cheaper. So if you are looking for the most economical smart drug option out there, this is probably it.
Piracetam is one of those supplements that does NOTHING for about 10% - 15% of the people who use it. Just because everyone's own biological constitution is different. This is why I actually emailed Peak Nootropics to find out specificially about the money back guarantee; they do have a 30 day money back money guarantee.
So if you are interested in trying Piracetam I would recommend trying this brand but if you end up being in the 10% - 15% that are unresponsive to Piracetam definitely take advantage of the Money Back Guarantee.
Piracetam first week
I purchased the 500gm package. It appears to be a good value. I have not had any luck in having the results reported by Jonathan. My first day I only took 2-2.5gms twice. I noticed an increase in energy...but then crashed, redosed for the afternoon and crashed pretty hard that evening. I did not feel I had an increase in my mental abilities or focus. The second day, I upped the dosage to 3gms and did not crash and I don't know that I had and increase in mental abilities but I did notice an alertness and sharpness. The Third day I kept the dosage the same, no crash and still increased alertness. I think I will up the dosage tomorrow to see if I have an increase in focus and memory. Not giving up yet. I have not had any headaches. Any suggestions are welcome.
lifting the veil
I felt a veil had been lifted, and under that veil, was a layer of my consciousness which helped me socially. I no longer felt uneasy when a sudden person approached me to ask a simple question. Words,that,usually were on the tip of my tongue, fell off that tip. Producing wider range of vocabulary. No sense of increased energy or improved memory.
I used the product for almost 3 months. Dose started at 800mg and ended at 2grams.
Seems to be working pretty damn well!
I truly believe that nootropics are beneficial to every one of us!
I started experimenting with a fairly low dose of Piracetam because I'm new to the nootropics family. I have truly enjoyed it thus far and will build a stack soon. My experience is music is pleasurable its little easier to tune into my writing, colors vibrant and I feel just a little bit more focused. As I increase the dosage I'm hoping that focus and concentration improve. I am pleased and I will definitely continue purchasing nootropics.
Piracetam is Best
Piracetam is so wonderful...
