Getting a safe nootropic is going to be any person’s main priority when they first start. Of course, it is always a priority, but some people might be a little more skiddish when they are just starting out because there are some risks of changing your brain chemistry no matter what you are trying to achieve. For most people, it is a good idea to start with safe drugs like racetams that have a long history of use and of study through research methods.
Here are a list of the safest racetams for you to try:
- Piracetam – this is by far the best and safest option that you can find so that you can get started. This is the original racetam that was found in the 1960s by a Romanian scientist during the Soviet Union era. This drug was immediately tested on many subjects for memory enhancement and preventing memory loss. All of the studies showed that not only was piracetam effective, but it was also a lot safer than many alternatives.
- Aniracetam – this was the second racetam to be discovered and many people also consider it to be one of the best and most useful. It has slightly different effects on the brain than piracetam because it is fat soluble and has a shorter half-life. Nonetheless, it is a potent and stimulating option that is still safe.
- Oxiracetam – finally, there is oxiracetam, which was discovered third and has also had some studies in recent years. It is not as well researched as piracetam or aniracetam, but compared to some of the newer analogs, there is a lot of data suggesting it is useful.
If you stick to these three, you’ll have the most safe experience with nootropics because they are well-studied and enjoyed options.
