While piracetam has been around for a long while, one often overlooked in the racetam category of brain pills is Aniracetam.
Aniracetam is a newer nootropic. However, many people refer to it as a slightly enhanced, more potent version of piracetam. This might be true. However, in fact, Aniracetam does produce some different effects from Piracetam as well.
One of these effects is that aside from only being a little bit more potent, Aniracetam apparently makes music a lot more enjoyable to listen to. When listening to music, or even playing instruments, you become more engaged and can really ‘feel’ the music.
Another such interesting effect is Aniracetam’s effects on color perception and overall sensation. Aniracetam makes you see colors more vividly, most notably the color red. In addition, you can feel, smell, and hear things more acutely.
Of course, Aniracetam also has the standard effects that Piracetam has. Aniracetam, just like Piracetam, is also a vasodilator. This means that it increases the flow of blood in the brain. By doing so, just like Piracetam, Aniracetam enhances focus, brain function, and memory.
However, one thing that you need to know is that Aniracetam is also known to produce more potent side effects, meaning the headaches that you will normally get with Piracetam are a little more overwhelming. In this way, you will need to stack Aniracetam with a lot more than Choline.
Just like Piracetam, though, Aniracetam is only comprised of one ingredient and is normally stacked with other supplements. Meaning, most people report the best results when it is stacked with supplements such as Choline, Vinpocetine, and Acetyl L-Carnitine.
The Aniracetam that we purchased was JL Nootropics’ Aniracetam. For the duration of two months, we tested it as only Aniracetam + Choline. The effects were very good. We were able to perform work at an increased efficiency, and it seemed like productivity was very high – even higher than with Piracetam, and higher than some other pre-stacked brain pills.
Our readers also seemed to really like Aniracetam, however, their results would vary greatly depending on what they stacked Aniracetam with, and at what doses. This is usually the problem with individual un-stacked nootropics: you need to experiment a lot to be able to find out what works best for you. And additionally, purchasing a few bottles of different supplements, although cheap, will collectively bring the price higher than most other pre-stacked formulas.
Aniracetam is a lot like Piracetam, but in many different ways, it’s also a lot better. While it does bring some great similarities, it also takes a next step further by some of the neat tricks that it can do in terms of enhanced sensation and perception. However, with this, Aniracetam may also bring about bad headaches. To get the best out of Aniracetam, you will have to stack it with other nootropics as well, which drives the cost up a lot more than what you would normally have to pay were you to buy a normal brain pill.
Overall, it’s a great substitute for Piracetam, but it would still be a lot more expensive than some other products we’ve reviewed if you want to get the whole experience.
