Pramiracetam belongs to a group of drugs called nootropics, or ‘smart drugs’ which are used to enhance memory and reverse the effects of brain aging. It is thought to be one of the most potent smart drugs available and, as well as improving memory, it is also used as an Alzheimer's disease treatment.
Pramiracetam, which was derived from Piracetam, is up to 7 times stronger, and has even greater ability to enhance memory. Clinical trials have demonstrated it has a mild anti-depressant effect, as well as improving memory, attention span and learning capacity. As such it is a useful Alzheimer's disease treatment.
The advantage of ‘smart drugs’ is they are effective but contain low toxicity, so they have very few side effects. Many people buy Pramiracetam for that reason. IAS Pramiracetam comes in 300mg tablets which, taken once or twice daily, can help postpone or even reverse the signs of aging.
Most people take Pramiracetam in later life to boost their energy levels and enhance their memory and learning capacity. It is widely believed to be one of the most effective ‘smart drugs’ on the market, with the ability to improve attention span, learning capacity, memory, time/space orientation and overall mental performance in older people.
It can also be used as a mild anti-depressant, with a sedative effect. And it has proven uses in treating Alzheimer’s disease. The benefits of taking Pramiracetam are wide-ranging, and it has been used to treat several conditions, including:
As part of the nootropics family, Pramiracetam works by enhancing your brain’s metabolism and increasing energy levels. It does this by enhancing protein biosynthesis and phospholipid metabolis. That increases levels of communication across the nerves that separate the two hemispheres of the brain, known as the corpus callosum. This is believed to encourage ‘new ideas’ and more creative thought.
Pramiracetam is up to 7 times stronger than Piracetam, from which it is derived, and has even greater potency to boost mental abilities. When given to patients suffering from age-related mild-to-moderate cerebral decline, it has been shown to improve many of the signs of aging, including improving attention and memory, boosting learning capacity and overall mental alertness.
In clinical trials conducted by Dimond and Brouwers, Pramiracetam was shown to enhance intelligence and memory. The tests involved 7 double blind trials with Pramiracetam, involving 16 second and third year college students, all in good physical and mental health. After 14 days, the authors were able to demonstrate that the students receiving Pramiracetam experienced improved verbal learning.
Further studies have also proven that Pramiracetam, as a nootropic, has one of the safest levels of toxicity available – even lower than salt. The studies have proven that humans can tolerate Pramiracetam dosages of 1200mg daily for up to one year, without any adverse side effects.
Pramiracetam has, in fact, been extensively researched and over 1,000 scientific papers have now been published in its name.
Optimum Pramiracetam dosages are 15mg per kilogram of body weight. If you are taking Pramiracetam daily, a regular dose is 600mg once or twice a day.
All nootropic drugs and other brain nutrition products – such as choline, DMAE, Hydergine and Centrophenoxine – synergise with each other. If you are taking Pramiracetam in combination with any of these, you may have to reduce individual doses to avoid possible side effects, such as headaches and nausea.
Pramiracetam is one of the most powerful and least toxic antiaging products available. With so few side effects and a proven reputation for reversing the signs of brain aging, it is hardly surprising that it is so widely used.
