Aniracetam is offered as a nootropic drug and is credited as a cognitive function enhancer. The formula is developed by Nutraceutics RX, a company based in the United States. An official web page of the manufacturer could not be identified however, although the producer appears to offer various other dietary supplements that cover different health claims.

Nutraceutics Aniracetam is available in two forms: as a powder and as capsules. The active ingredient has similar benefits to Piracetam, namely improving memory recall and alertness. The substances known as Nootropics act mainly on the Corpus Calossum, the part of the brain that links the lefts hemisphere to the right one. The main role of this white matter is to facilitate communication between the two parts of the brain: it allows the logical hemisphere (left) to efficiently communicate with the creative hemisphere (right) and this is believed to be the premise of a healthy functioning brain, and proper mental abilities.

The formula is also believed to influence the levels of two important neurotransmitters: Serotonin and Dopamine, both strictly related to how the body perceives and acts under stress. Nutraceutics Aniracetam effects may also include cognitive benefits in people suffering from neuro-degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s. The formulation is designed to help adults in increasing their brain abilities, including memory, concentration, focus, and creativity.


1) Quick Overview

Nutraceutics Aniracetam is based on a single active ingredient.
This is a fat-soluble compound researched for its believed benefits on cognition. The substance is part of the racetams family and is regarded considerably more potent than Piracetam due to its fat-soluble properties. This translates into a higher penetration rate of the blood brain barrier, which makes it more easily absorbed in the brain. Research on both human and animal subjects revealed its abilities in reducing anxiety and symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. The compound has gained a lot of popularity in recent years due to its subtle but impressive action on the brain, particularly on the creativity, but also because it seems to be very potent in helping people to relax, concentrate and learn faster, sleep better, and release from anxiety. Some people recommend a combination between several Nootropics from the racetams family as they seem to work synergistically towards promoting an overall health.
Some of the reported downsides of such drugs are its bitter taste, the relatively slow effect (the first improvements are not usually noticed before two weeks) and the fact that for maximum benefits the formula needs to be taken with a meal that consists in foods containing high amounts of fats).

A common side effect associated with the use of Nutraceutics Aniracetam is headaches. It has been stated that the combination Aniracetam-Choline may help in preventing such symptoms and increases the individual therapeutic effects of these substances. Nutraceutics Aniracetam reviews have been generally praising the formula’s potent effects in improving various area of mental performance. The proper dosage of Aniracetam based products was established at 750 -1500 mg per day, but this value has not been approved by any medical authority.
Although these types of formulations are considered generally safe and non-addictive, mild effects may sometimes occur in the form of headaches and anxiety.

Final Thoughts

8) Final Thoughts on Aniracetam

Nutraceutics Aniracetam is a drug commonly used by individuals who want to improve their mental capacities. Although the formula is available for online purchasing as an over the counter supplement in some countries, self-medication with such substances (Nootropics) is not recommended. A professional consultation is highly advised when considering using Aniracetam supplements, mainly because research involving Nootropics is not very advanced and some unexpected reactions or drug interactions (with harmful effects on the users) are possible.

Nutraceutics Aniracetam seems to be still available for online purchasing, but from a reduced number of suppliers. Further research is however necessary to check the availability of the formula. Official information about this formula is not available at the time of this review. The lack of any testimonials from consumers is also a major disadvantage. It is also our recommendation to ask your physician before starting any treatment with such a product.

This product has been particularly helpful in improving recall memory and focus. After I turned 50 I started noticing that I started forgetting simple things like names of the people I knew for years. Of course, I thought it was just a sign of getting old. But then I found out about this effective way to improve the brain’s capacity. My doctor agreed to use Aniracetam for a month and see how that went. After 3 months I feel a very big difference. My memory seems to be as good as 20 years ago and I feel more alert and focused in everything that I do. I am glad I tried it and I recommend it to all those who want to preserve their cognitive function even after reaching a certain age.

Aniracetam has been a great support for me. I was having difficulties in learning and feeling overwhelmed at school because of that. During my final exams I just collapsed. Then I heard a colleague who had been taking the product for years and he was one of the top of my class. Since starting to take the pills my grades have improved my memory and concentration are better than ever, and I also feel more creative. And I didn’t experience any side effect.
