Piracetam is a product containing piracetam, which is classified as nootropic (procognitive) compounds, i.e. improving cognitive functions and increasing mental performance.

Nootropic drugs are a group of substances whose purpose is to stimulate the metabolism (metabolism) of the central nervous system (CNS), which is to result in the activation of mental processes such as level of consciousness, perception and memory phenomena.

Piracetam - a 2-pyrrolidone derivative with a structure similar to the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid); nootropic drug with very good oral bioavailability (100%) and a half-life of 4-8 hours, therefore it should be used in divided doses, e.g. three times a day. He is called the father of all racetams.

The mechanism of action of piracetam has not been completely elucidated. It probably facilitates the synthesis of high-energy compounds in the nervous tissue and increases energy reserves by improving the use of glucose and oxygen in neurons of the central nervous system, as well as by increasing the tolerance of nerve cells to reduced oxygen. In addition, by preventing the aggregation (clumping) of morphotic elements, it reduces blood viscosity and improves microcirculation in the cerebral vessels.

There are also reports of the effect of piracetam on improving the production of neurotransmitters, as well as stimulating their release from nerve endings. Probably it is about increasing the levels of dopamine, GABA and noradrenaline and improving the neurotransmission on the central neuronal pathways of these neurotransmitters, which is particularly noticeable in the states of reduced activity in these places.

The action of piracetam results in the improvement of psychophysical fitness, concentration of attention, ability to remember and reconstruct information stored in long-term memory. In addition, it has application in patients with sickle cell anemia, because it prevents erythrocyte aggregation and has a positive effect on the elasticity of their cell membrane.

Therapeutic use
Piracetam has been used for many years with a positive effect in various disease processes and mental disorders. It counteracts memory impairment, learning disabilities, association and recall disorders, and problems related to adaptation to the new environment and social adaptation.

It is used in the treatment of cognitive disorders in dementia syndromes, pathological involuntary movements (myoclonus) of cortical origin, dizziness, dyslexic disorders (specific difficulties in reading and writing) and in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

To sum up, Revange Piracetam is a preparation designed to improve cognitive function and increase mental performance. Recommended for students, white-collar workers and anyone who makes above-average intellectual effort. Used in the elderly, it can prevent dementia or Alzheimer's disease.
