Phenylpiracetam (aka Phenotropil) is another nootropic derived from Piracetam. Piracetam has gained its popularity throughout the world as a very strong cognitive enhancer. Phenylpiracetam has an additional phenyl group in its structure and is claimed to be 30-60 times stronger than Piracetam (the original racetam) on a gram for gram basis. This means that much lower dosages of Phenylpiracetam are required for the same effects. Phenylpiracetam is a cognition-enhancing agent with neuroprotective effects but also psychostimulatory properties.
Phenylpiracetam improves cognitive function which is reflected by enhanced attentional abilities and acquisition, storage and retrieval of information and learning. Evidence for its neuroprotective properties comes from a number of clinical trials demonstrating the reduced rate of a cognitive decline as well as reduced levels of anxiety and depression. Phenylpiracetam appears to be more neuroprotective than Piracetam.
Due to its power and effectiveness Phenylpiracetam can be used by a range of people. For example, a student revising for an exam or a business professional preparing an important business presentation under a tight deadline.
The exact method of action of Phenylpiracetam is unknown, however it works by interacting with and stimulating target brain receptors, such as acetylcholine, GABA and NDMA glutamate. This is also evidence showing that Phenylpiracetam increases noradrenaline and dopamine levels in the brain.
Phenylpiracetam is water soluble, rapidly absorbed and exhibits high oral bioavailability. This ensures it quickly reaches the brain and becomes active within 1 hour after ingestion. The half-life of Phenylpiracetam is around 2.5-3 hours.
The recommended daily dosage is between 200 and 600 mg. Therefore, acute dose of 100-200 mg taken 2-3 times per day is advisable. Because there is a lack of long-term human studies, the recommended dosages should not be exceeded.
Phenylpiracetam is known to increase the Acetylcholine activity levels in the hippocampus area of the brain. One of the consequences of this process (as observed in other racetams), is reduced levels of choline. Choline is essential to a healthy function of the brain. It is also a precursor to Acetylcholine. Therefore, in order to prevent headache, which is a result of increased demands of Acetylcholine, it is recommended to stack Phenylpiracetam with choline containing compound (e.g. Alpha GPC, DMAE or Choline Bitartrate).
Undesirable side effects, like with other members of the racetam family, include headaches, nausea, gastrointestinal problems and sleep disturbances/insomnia. If any of these side effects do occur, please take a lower dosage. Also, to avoid any sleep disturbances Phenylpiracetam should not be consumed past the late afternoon.
Although, Phenylpiracetam has a low addiction profile, tolerance with prolonged use could become an issue. If taken everyday day it may lose its nootropic effects. Therefore, we recommend taking it on an ‘as needed’ basis based on specific goals. For example, if you need to work throughout a day whilst revising for an exam and prepare for a test.
It is important to note that no adverse or dangerous effects of Phenylpiracetam on the human body have ever been reported.
Because of Phenylpiracetam’s psychostimulatory effects it is on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s list of banned substances as a non-specified stimulant.
