(bulk powder)

Piracetam (2-oxo-1-pyrrolidine-acetamide), the most common of the nootropic drugs, is a cyclic derivative of gamma-aminobutyric acid. The treatment with piracetam improves learning, memory, brain metabolism, and capacity. Piracetam has been shown to alter the physical properties of the plasma membrane by increasing its fluidity and by protecting the cell against hypoxia. The interaction of this molecule with the membrane phospholipids restores membrane fluidity and could explain the efficacy of piracetam in various disorders ranging from dementia and vertigo to myoclonus and stroke. It is the first representative of the „nootropic” drugs. The term nootropic comes from a Greek words meaning  „acting on the mind”. Piracetam was synthesized by Giurgea in UCB Laboratories In Belgium. It has been in clinical use since 1972. Piracetam enhances cognition and also enhances memory and learning. When piracetam is taken with choline, there is a synergistic effect that causes a greater improvement in memory. It has been also shown that piracetam protect neurons from heroin-induced apoptosis.

Pharmacokinetics

Piracetam is absorbed  very well (oral administration) with a  bioavailability of almost 100% and reaches maximum plasma concentration 50ug/ml after 30-40 minutes (2g dose). Drug is excreted in unchanged form in the urine and completely eliminated after 30 hours, crosses blood brain barrier slowly, because of its high hydrophilicity.

Mechanisms of Action

Mechanism of action is unclear, some researchers suggested that drug enhances energy metabolism and oxygen utilization in the brain by interacting with ion channels/transporters in central nervous system.
