Phenylpiracetam is a powerful nootropic supplement with a variety of potential benefits. The most dominant and acute effects of phenylpiracetam are improved memory, strength and mood and reduction of anxiety or depression. Among the racetams, phenylpiracetam is one of the better studied, in both humans and animals.
Although not proven, it is believed that phenylpiracetam works by increasing the number of dopamine, serotonin and GABA receptors in the brain, each of which help to improve mood and reduce anxiety. While mental health is partly regulated by brain wave frequencies, phenylpiracetam increases the frequency of alpha and beta brain waves. Alpha waves, also referred to as relaxation waves influence imagination, visualization, memory, learning and concentration. When you take a nap without being sleepy for example, when you close your eyes and begin to relax and daydream while being aware of it, alpha waves in the brain are increased. Beta waves are correlated to logical thinking and consciousness, both of which are important for the effective brain functioning throughout a day.
Further studies suggest that phenylpiracetam may benefit people suffering epileptic seizures induced by brain damage after strokes or surgeries . It may do this by improving communication between brain cells that control our movement. The results showed that the majority of probant’s cognitive functions performed better after administering phenylpiracetam for 8 weeks.
Due to its beneficial effects to memory and cognitive performance, phenylpiracetam is frequently used by university students or workers with intense work-phases to become more efficient. Besides cognitive performance, phenylpiracetam has shown to be effective in treating depression, often related to medication affecting mood negatively. An example is a study which results showed that phenylpiracetam can reduce psycho-depressant effects caused by the medication diazepam, or valium.
Phenylpiracetam can also benefit athletes performance and stamina by increasing the body's ability to tolerate temperatures. When the body heats up during workout or while running, the body is able to get rid of more sweat both reducing water levels in the body and cooling the body down, therefore extending endurance.
