Welcome to the official All About Nootropics Blog
I am a lover of nootropics and specially the racetam family. Nootropics have been a big part of life and getting though studies and my life. I now use them safely on a daily routine to help with my day to day activities. This blog is meant to inform people about nootropics and the wonderful effects they can have on our lives.
One thing I’d like to say before I start, is that you must use nootropics responsibly. These supplements are still drugs and although they have low toxicity and side effects, it does not mean that will or will not react to them. I am going to share some tips on how to avoid thee in this blog.

Meet the Racetams
Racetams were developed in Russia and can help with boosting your cognition. The main nootropic is Noopept however there are several other popular ones that have taken the nation by storm. My first experience with Piracteam was immediately possible. I felt the effects within 10 minutes and I really noticed my perception was increased. Later on in that day I really noticed my cognition increase. It is subtle but at the same time very drastic if you pay attention to the signals.
Anyway, for someone who is just trying nootropics I highly recommended Piracetam because it is very cheap and effective. From here you can choose to move to other racetam supplements and either choose to stack or increase your dosage.
There Are Other Racetams Too
There are several other racetamic nootropics that are fairly popular and I have tried all of them. Some of the well-known ones are: Pramiracetam, Aniracetam, Oxiracetam and Noopept. I find stacking the less expensive nootropics together really enhance the effects whereas, using the more expensive ones like Pramoiractem and Noopept work well alone and that stacking doesn’t add too much value for the price.
I use Pramiracetam frequently and find it to be very effective for helping me study and complete mundane tasks. This supplement is fairly expensive so I only use it in times of need. It really allows me to use logial thinking more efficiently and I find that I can focus longer on tasks that are usually distracting.
Noopept can also be used on a frequent schedule. It is also very expensive. Noopept is technically not in the racetam family but closely related. You have to be careful with Noopept because I have actually overdosed before. As far as I know it is not dangerous but you can get some nasty headaches and it was not enjoyable. Follow the recommended dosages and you should be fine.
I follow a practice called racetam stacking. This is where you take multiple supplements to enhance effects. I really effective stack consists of Aniracetam, Piracetam and Oxiracetam. These supplements are cheap and can be used together. I find it to be really effective for me and often use it on a daily basis.
One thing I would also recommend would be to add choline into your diet. Choline helps reduce side effects of nootropics. The reason for this is because it increases a chemical in your brain that is more in demand when you are taking racetams. It is almost like gasoline and helps feed your brain which is the engine. I find if I do not use choline that I often get nasty headaches and fatigue. It also results in desired effects and I see it as a must when tasking nootropics.
The other thing I would recommend is to cycle your nootropic supplements. Nootropic haven’t been proven to cause bad tolerance issue but effects do diminish overtime for me. This is usually after a few weeks of taking them. I cycle supplements to increase the benefits and will often follow a schedule. I do always take a choline supplement and I have not seen a reason to cycle. As far as I know, I haven’t seen any issue with cross-tolerance in these supplements but I am assuming it is possible as the method of action is similar.
I am not going to recommend taking a nootropic without speaking with your doctor first. This is especially true if you are using other medication. I have not seen any reports of fatalities or dangerous drug interactions online however I think it is possible they can exist. One thing I love is that nootropics have been around for a long time. This means they have have a fairly good track record and you should not worry as much.
Nootorpics are used in many countries and considered safe. Regardless, I always take the supplement in lower doses for the first them. I am a very calculated person and I avoid putting myself at more risk than necessary. I highly recommend you do the same.
Also, if you experience side effects on nootropics other than headaches or fatigue I would recommend to stop and to talk to a doctor. If you experience side effects and fatigue try adding choline and if they don’t stop try lowering the dosage and if neither works then stop immediately. This could be a sign of something.
I always follow medical research in this field. I am really interested in brain chemistry and I know how nootropics work. It is know that they affect the AMPA and NDMA rectors in the brain which a vastly important in cognitive function. Some racetams seem to have a higher affinity with one or both these sites.
Nootropics also affect the glutamate receptors and these also play a role in neurological function. Many nootropics have been evaluated for medical use. In the US there is no approved use but in other countries they are used for their general nootropic functions.
Piracetam is used medically also. It is used to help reduce the risk of stroke or post stroke damages. This is because it is known as a potent oxygen and blood boosting agent in the brain. I don’t know if this relates to the other racetams but know if specifically affect Piracetam. If you are at risk of stoke I would recommend not to use it as a first line of defence and talk to your doctor but it is interesting.
A lot of the racetam are also being heavily investigated for Alzheimer’s I know Noopept is a target for this. It has been shown to help not only reduce Alzheimer’s symptoms, but also possible it may repair damages cells and receptors in these patients. This is all speculation at this point and has not been approved. I am sure we will see some advancement sin this are in the near future.
Nootropics for Anxiety
Nootorpic may have merit in helping anxiety. I know this is the case with me. I often let my mind wander and this often leads to anxiety. I find it helps reduce that unfocused anxiety in the back of my mind. It is quite subtle but still an effect for me. You may or may not experience the same.
From a scientific standpoint, Aniracetam and Noopept can help with anxiety. These racetams actually affect serotonin and dopamine receptors in the brain. This would explain why they may reduce anxiety. Serotonin issue are also common related to anxiety as well as depression. Maybe I have a serotonin issue but anxiety doesn’t affect me all the time. I find and effective and cheap supplement is Aniracetam and if you like this one try Noopept. It is a little more expensive but quite effective.
