Nootropil is the brand name form of the highly regarded nootropic, piracetam, considered by most authorities to be the starting place for anyone seeking to enhance their mental capabilities and improve their ability to concentrate at work. Nootropil is in a class of medicines called racetams which positively influence neural function but without the side effects associated with traditional stimulants. Shown to increase bloodflow and oxygen consumption in the brain, Nootropil also improves processes involved in memory formation and retention. It is used clinically mainly to treat dementia, depression and anxiety.
Nootropil's most predominant use is actually classed as off-label. Nootropil is widely used by life extensionists, and those seeking to optimise their cognitive function. It is considered the basic foundation of any stack of nootropics although with time others may come to switch its use out for other, more potent racetams.
Nootropil is considered a very safe medicine with very few side effects and irrespective of the reason for its use, it is therefore considered a good first treatment option.
Nootropil can be used by both sexes and done so safely.
Nootropil dosing will vary significantly from those using doses of around 1-2g daily at the one end, while at the other end of the scale, some nootropics users will dose this at up to 20g a day. Always refer to product literature
