Aniracetam is one of the first two(the other being Oxi) well-studied derivative-sprout branches of the protonoot, Piracetam.
Like other racetams, it has been seen to enhance brain metabolization and increase ATP/LTP production, as well as modulate AMPA/NMDA receptors, acetylcholine levels, and general communication of the brain’s hemispheres in a positive way.
A few noticeable characteristics that make Aniracetam stand out from its racetam brethren are:
1. Roughly 5-10x more potent than Piracetam
2. Calming, Anxiolytic(anti-anxiety) effects
3. Leans towards creativity-based forms of cognition and enhancing mood
4. Fat soluble(unlike other racetams), able to cross blood-brain barrier faster
It was first synthesized in Belgium in the 1970’s by the same pharmaceutical company responsible for producing the first synthetic vitamin C in the 30’s.
CDP(Cytidine DiPhosphate) Choline, also known as Citicoline, is a highly bioavailable choline-containing phospholipid Nootropic compound that dissociates in-vivo into the compounds Choline and Cytidine, the latter of which is then quickly converted into Uridine, one of the four basic components of RNA(Ribonucleic Acid).
The benefits of taking CDP compared to a lesser choline source is that it provides the body with enough raw choline along with cofactors for various (*)choline esters to both facilitate neurotransmitter production(via (*acetyl)choline) AND strengthen neuronal membrane integrity(via (*phosphatidyl)choline), by removing unnecessary steps in various cholinergic syntheses and keeping the body from cannibalizing one process for another due to limited available materials to work with.
