Piracetam and its Effects on the Brain

Piracetam reverses the effects of aging in the brain. Piracetam also appears to be effective in treating cognitive impairment in alcoholism. Piracetam is useful as a long-term treatment for clotting, coagulation, and vasospastic disorders such as deep-vein thrombosis as it operates through the novel mechanism of inhibiting platelet aggregation and enhances blood-cell deformability. Some research suggests that piracetam’s overall effect on lowering depression and anxiety is even higher than memory improvement. Piracetam has become a popular supplement in the subculture of lucid dreaming. Its use has been largely made popular by a book published by Thomas Yuschak titled Advanced Lucid Dreaming The Power of Supplements. A daily dose of 4.8 grams is considered optimal.
