Phenylpiracetam Capsules

Phenylpiracetam Capsules

Phenylpiracetam Capsules (Phenotropil Capsules) are a popular form of the well known nootropic, phenylpiracetam. Capping phenylpiracetam allows for an efficient delivery, with uniform concentration and little hassle. Derived from piracetam, phenylpiracetam capsules have the addition of a phenyl group to the structure of the active compound. Requiring much lower dosages than other racetams, it produces noted cognitive benefits as well as a subjective feeling of drive and euphoria due to stimulatory properties.

Phenylpiracetam is a racetam nootropic, and as such phenylpiracetam capsules should be paired with a choline source. Reported to be more neuroprotective than piracetam, capped phenylpiracetam is a potent stimulant without many of the side effects of others.

Research seems to suggest that similar to other racetams, phenylpiracetam capsules can be effective in mitigating the progression of cognitive decline. Studies report the effects of phenylpiracetam capsules over longer periods of time, with benefits mostly noted in organic cases of cognitive impairment (Alzheimer’s and dementia) rather than episodic trauma.

A single study in rodents notes cognitive improvement in healthy rats, noting benefits exclusively with the R-isomer. The cognitive benefits of the racemic mixture have been disputed and remain controversial, though the stimulatory properties seem to be conclusive, occurring in the R-isomer as well as the racemic variant.

Also known as: Carphedon,(RS)-2-(2-oxo-4-phenylpyrrolidin-1-yl) acetamide, and Phenotropil

What are Phenylpiracetam Capsules?

Being water soluble, phenylpiracetam is most effective when consumed with water, and on an empty stomach
Reported to be as much as forty times stronger than Piracetam, encapsulated phenylpiracetam is a favorite of many online nootropics communities. The addition of the phenyl isomer allows for the molecule to more easily permeate the blood brain barrier, making it much more bio-available than piracetam alone.


Phenylpiracetam is typically dosed between 100 and 700 mgs (the maximum recommended amount). Our phenylpiracetam capsules are 250 mgs each and should always be paired with a choline source

Phenylpiracetam Side Effects

Possible side effects include headache, jitters, insomnia, nausea and irritability. This can be avoided with proper choline supplementation as well as plenty of water.



Happy Biohacking.
