Aniracetam {1-[(4-methoxybenzoyl)]- 2-pyrrolidinone} is a fat soluble analog of the nootropic piracetam. While it shares many of piracetam’s effects on the brain, it has two main advantages piracetam does not have:  

  1. Being fat soluble, aniracetam has far better penetration into the brain through the blood brain barrier.
  2. Aniracetam is a stimulator of the brain’s glutamate AMPA receptors. AMPA receptor research is considered an exciting development in the study of enhanced cognition.

Aniracetam is a clinically studied broad range cognitive enhancer researched and used especially in Europe for supporting cognitive health.  Aniracetam may also benefit emotional health.
