This supplement/drug is not new. It is new to me though. Piracetam (brand name: Nootropil, Qropi, Myocalm, Dinagen) is a nootropic. It is a drug which enhances cognition and memory, slows down brain aging, increases blood flow and oxygen to the brain, aids stroke recovery, and improves Alzheimer's, Down syndrome, dementia, and dyslexia, among others. Piracetam's chemical name is 2-oxo-1-pyrrolidine acetamide; it shares the same 2-oxo-pyrrolidone base structure with 2-oxo-pyrrolidine carboxylic acid (pyroglutamate). Piracetam is a cyclic derivative of GABA. It is one of the racetams. Piracetam is prescribed by doctors for some conditions, mainly myoclonus, but is used off-label for a much wider range of applications. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piracetam Sounds badass. If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. You can buy this over the counter. Is this a crock of shit or has anyone here used it and noticed positive brain improvement? I am tempted to go out and buy it and try it if nobody knows anything about it / has not tried it. Chime in.
