This is my take on Aniracetam, a part of the group of nootropics substances known as "racetams".These racetams generally modulate AMPA receptors, as well as increase the levels of acetylcholine in the brain. If you are looking to increase your productivity at work or in school, nootropic substances such as Aniracetam can allow you to do this. What sets Aniracetam apart from other similar nootropics is the fact that it also has a fantastic ability to mitigate anxiety. This means that not only will taking Aniracetam increase your focus and productivity, but it will also reduce work related stress. (reference: nootreviews)
In the past I have dabbled with many other nootropics substances - this includes the other primary racetams, including Phenypiracetam, Piracetam, Oxiracetam, and even some weird outliers like Colouracetam. I have also used Noopept which is very structurally similar to the racetams. I found these all to be unique an helpful in their own right. For example, Pramiracetam allows me to be very productive, and far more more objective. Phenypiracetam gives me loads of energy, and Piracetam really increases my short term memory and learning ability. These effects are all very beneficial, and have helped me in many areas of my life. However, the one thing which they have not helped me with is my anxiety. I have moderately debilitating social anxiety, and I am always looking for tools to fight it with. I had read some promising reports regarding the other racetams' abilities in this regard, but I was disappointed to find that they didn't effect me in the same way.
This brings me to my next point. When I finally managed to purchase some Aniracetam and try it, I realized that it gives me wonderful anti-anxiety effects. Other nootropics such as Phenylpiracetam and Pramiracetam may give slightly more stimulating and focus boosting effects, but they are actually known to increase stress and anxiety. What sets Aniracetam apart from these other nootropics is it's powerful anti anxiety effects, which allow you to stay relaxed and productive at the same time.
For me personally, having a heavy workload always stresses me out like crazy. The funny thing about this is that being stressed out and anxious actually reduces my ability to be productive. So not only do I end up stressed out, but I also end up being less productive and getting less work done. I have found that by taking Aniracetam I am able to greatly reduce both my productivity at work as well as reduce my stress. Not only does Aniracetam give me these wonderful benefits, but these effects actually get better and better over time. Due to a phenomenon known as the buildup effect, Aniracetam actually builds up in your system, and it's effects get more potent over time. Unlike stimulants such as Adderall and Ritallin which build tolerance quickly, the effects of Aniracetam actually get better and better over time. This means that Aniracetam can be taken in the long term without losing it's efficacy. Due to this it has become a part of my daily routine, and it has greatly boosted by productiveness at work, as well as reduced my stress.
