- Better decision making
Coluracetam is a nootropic agent composed of a Racetam compound synthetically derived from Piracetam. It is also soluble ethanol. It was first developed and tested in Japan by Mitsubishi Tanabe Pharma Corporation for Alzheimer’s disease in 2005. It was then made available to the general public in 2013 and quickly gained recognition for its cognitive effects.
Many of the benefits of coluracetam and exact mechanisms are not verified and needs to be confirmed by further research, but what is indicated by the studies performed (see reference at bottom) is that when in action, Coluracetam improves the body’s choline uptake through the high affinity choline uptake (HACU) process; the mechanism for absorbing and converting choline into neurons during the Acetylcholine synthesis process. By facilitating the conversion of large amounts of choline into Acetylcholine, the brain memory, alertness and attention is improved. Coluracetam also affects sections of the brain that are concerned with visual processing, and is therefore touted to improve the sense of sight.
Benefits of Coluracetam
According to BrainCells Inc, Coluracetam is a potential treatment for various diseases and disorders that affect the brain and nervous system. Such diseases and disorders that Coluracetam has the potential of treating and preventing include; ischemic retinopathy and optic nerve injuries. The ability of Coluracetam to reverse the loss of choline production makes it a potential drug for treatment of schizophrenia. These refer to the clinical benefits of Coluracetam. Obviously, more research is needed to conclude these coluracetam benefits.
it does this by increasing choline uptake and synthesis of Acetylcholine. It is also able to reduce cytotoxicity (a state of being toxic to body cells) of the brain, which is usually caused by an influx of calcium in cultured cortical neurons. This occurs when supply of oxygen to the brain is limited. Coluracetam is also considered an anti-depressant and can therefore possibly be used in treating various forms of depression. It can be effectively used to deal with stress and hangovers by creating feelings of contentment and peace. This is a motivation boosting nootropic, a distinct feature from the other nootropics. Coluracetam has also been found to be effective in the treatment of patients experiencing major depressive disorder and general anxiety disorder making this nootropic supplement an effective anti-depressant.
A unique feature of Coluracetam as a nootropic that makes it distinct is that it is the only high affinity choline uptake (HACU) enhancer. This enables it to speed up the flow of Acetylcholine in the brain thereby improving the brain functions of memory, mood, intelligence and learning.
The dosage for Coluracetam may not have a medically recommended standard, but a maximum of 200 mg a day is advisable. The dosage also varies depending on the reason for using the supplement. For instance, users taking the supplement to treat major depressive disorder or general anxiety disorder may be advised to take 300 mg a day in order to get the maximum benefits. It also depends on where you buy coluracetam, so be sure to use the dosage recommended by the company where you bought your coluracetam as well as asking your doctor advice before buying coluracetam.
Coluracetam Side Effects
The use of Coluracetam is relatively safe with very few side effects. The common side effect that may be experienced is headache. This can however be countered by stacking Coluracetam with Centrophenoxine, Alpha GPC, or CDP Choline to reduce such side effects. However, if you are planning to buy coluracetam, ask your providing company for further instructions on how to stack coluracetam.
