It’s no secret that I’m a pretty big fan of the nootropics pramiracetam. Regular visitors to Best Nootropics Now must have noticed by now I talk about it plenty. While I am just one man touting this smart drug and raving about its benefits, I’m also part of an ever-growing crowd. Why has pramiracetam gained so many followers and become so popular? That is what I’ll dig into in this post.
Why People Love Pramiracetam
There are multiple reasons I believe are responsible for pramiracetam’s popularity. The first is the research behind its effectiveness. While all nootropics tend to have numerous studies showing their benefits, most of those involve the elderly. The bulk of pramiracetam testing happens on healthy adults, people whose cognitive abilities have not yet started to deteriorate.
Personally, I very much like to see research done on a similar demographic as mine. It gives much a clearer picture of which pramiracetam side effects and benefits I can expect. Tests performed on an aging brain don’t always translate very well to a younger healthier one.
Another reason why pramiracetam is so popular is its strength. It’s a happy medium between weaker and more powerful smart drugs. For example, products like oxiracetam or aniracetam are mostly at the lower end of the mental stimulation scale. On the other hand, something like phenylpiracetam is one of the stronger options. Pramiracetam hits the right balance between those two extremes.
I have gotten excellent results from many nootropics for focus, which is one of pramiracetam’s strengths. But one thing pramiracetam has helped me more than other options is forgetfulness and memory. And that’s a pretty common opinion (hence its popularity). Ever have those moments where something is right on the tip of your tongue? I find those are fewer and far between what I’m on pramiracetam, much more than with other alternatives.
What’s There Not to Like in Pramiracetam
One thing that is not making people fans of it is pramiracetam’s absolutely horrid taste. If you’re planning on using it in powder format, you’re in for a treat. Take it from me, avoid the powder at all cost.
If you insist on a powder based substance, then maybe take some time to investigate alternatives. Noopept and other nootropics will give you similar effects. Feel free to check out my comparison of pramiracetam and Noopept for more details.
It’s possible that after doing your research, you’re still dead set on powder pramiracetam. After all, its benefits and chemical make up may be ideally suited for your needs. If that’s the case, you’ll need to mix the powder with something. A robustly flavored juice may be enough to mask most of the taste, though it will still likely take some time getting used to it. That’s how bad and powerful the flavor is.
Those are my thoughts on the popularity of pramiracetam. If you use it, I’m curious to hear what first drew you to it. What has your experience been and why is it (or why is it not) your preferred nootropic tool. Please leave your feedback in the comments below.
