In 1983 Russian scientists added the “phenyl” atom to the parent molecule, “piracetam.” This alteration created the derivative phenyl-piracetam, greatly increasing the potency of the original piracetam. phenyl-piracetam is reported to be as much as 60 times more effective than piracetam.1
The “phenyl” variety is widely regarded as one of the strongest nootropic substances available. It now takes lower doses of phenyl-piracetam to show brain enhancement than with the original piracetam.
Phenyl-piracetam is reported to be more neuro-protective than the original piracetam, without loss of any of the brain enhancement features.2
Like all nootropics, phenyl-piracetam is known for its effects on both mental and physical performance. It is one of the most well researched nootropics available today.
Phenyl-piracetam can be so effective at improving mental endurance and physical prowess that it has been banned by the Olympics. This single fact is strong proof of its effectiveness.3
Phenyl-piracetam has many other potential brain benefits. In fact, it has been shown in specific studies to potentially:
- Stimulate neuronal receptors in the central nervous system involved in memory and thought
- Improve memory in otherwise healthy individuals since its upgraded formulation in 1983
- Increase brain function in people with Alzheimer’s, stroke injuries, or other brain trauma
- Boost cognition and shorten learning curves
- Slow the rate of cognitive decline in all ages
- Eliminate “brain fog” and increase mental energy
- Produce a mentally calming effect and reduce anxiety
