Piracetam is the first ever formulated cognitive enhancer or mind power supplement to improve memory and sharpen mental ability. Also known as piracetam nootropil, the mind power supplement belongs to a class of medicines called nootropics or smart drugs. The word nootropil too is derived from nootropics, which are a category of non toxic medicines specially designed to increase cognition.
The medicine is based on the principle that unlike the popular past belief that we use only 10% of our brain, piracetam believes that every part of human brain has a specific function and utility. Human brain is divided into two halves, left hemisphere and right hemisphere. Both the sides are connected through a part of the brain called corpus callosum.
Responsible for imagination and logic respectively, both left and right side of the brain are essential to complete and sharp cognition. Most of mental decline and mind related disorders such as dementia, dyslexia, stroke ischemia etc. are caused due to an improper or lack of communication between these two sides of the brain.
Piracetam nootropil not only works to stimulate the central nervous system, but also stimulates the corpus callosum, leading to increased and frequent communication between the two sides of the brain. This facilitated communication between the two sides of the brain, not only ensures enhanced cognition but also improved memory, greater attention span and learning capacity.
Piracetam especially works to treat serious cases of mental decline such as senile dementia, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease by increasing the alpha and beta activity associated with intelligence and memory and slowing down the delta and theta activity linked with ageing and decline. By reversing this electrical activity in the brain, piracetam reinvent and rejuvenate the mind for greater memory and increased mental ability.
As piracetam is a nootropic medicine, piracetam side effects are very rare and mild. The mild side effects that do occur include headaches, insomnia, nervousness and stomach upset. Piracetam is used for a range of conditions such as dyslexia, dementia, stroke ischemia, alcoholism, drug addiction, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.
Being a mild medicine compared to other nootropic substances or cognitive enhancers, piracetam can also be taken by otherwise healthy adults looking to improve performance at work or studies by consuming a daily dietary supplement or anti ageing supplement. Piracetam is also the safest and most effective way to prevent age related mental decline.
Piracetam dosage is three Nootropil 800mg tablets (known as piracetam 800) twice a day. Piracetam is also available in liquid and powder form.
