What is Aniracetam?
Aniracetam is an ampakine nootropic that belongs to the racetam family. It’s a derivative of Piracetam – the first ‘smart drug’ – and was first developed in the late 1970’s by a Swiss-based pharmaceutical company. While Piracetam is water-soluble, Aniracetam is fat-soluble. This difference in solubility enables Aniracetam to cross the blood-brain barrier more efficiently than Piracetam, and is considered to be up to 10 times more potent!
