Product Description

Phenylpiracetam is a modified version of Piracetam, the original nootropic compound.  With the addition of the Phenyl group, Phenylpiracetam is 10 times more powerful, and kicks in much faster. This allows even small amounts to provide a mighty, medium-duration boost to cognition and productivity.

From problem solving to concentration, and from motivation to memory, Phenylpiracetam provides broad-action enhancement across a range of cognitive attributes, securing its place as one of the best nootropics on the market. This broad action effect combines well for study, heavy cognitive load tasks, and as a pre-workout booster.

Product Guidelines

Capsules per day: 1 – 3

Effect onset: 30 – 60 minutes

Effect duration: Phenylpiracetam has a peak effect duration of 3-5 hours, with some residual benefits reported up to 10 hours later.

Extended use: Safe to use every other day (up to 3-4 times per week). After 2 weeks of use, taking 1 week off will avoid building tolerance.

Usage notes:

  • If Phenylpiracetam causes headaches 250 – 500 mg of Citicoline or keeping well hydrated may counteract this.
  • Usage in the morning is optimal for avoiding sleep disruption due to increased wakefulness.

Alcohol note: Phenylpiracetam tends to intensify the effects and rate of alcohol intoxication: two drinks might leave you feeling like you had four or more, including amplified sedative effects and loss of impulse control. For this reason, it is advised not to combine this product and Alcohol.

Some studies indicate that taking Phenylpiracetam the morning after a night of drinking may alleviate hangover symptoms and reverse memory loss.
