NoöRacetam is LifeLink’s brand of piracetam. Piracetam, a derivative of the neurotransmatter GABA, is a racetam — a category of cognitive enhancers that includes aniracetam, pramiracetam, oxiracetam, and others. Cognitive enhancers are also called “noötropics”.
Piracetam was first of the noötropics. Discovered in 1964, it has been in clinical and popular use in Europe and elsewhere since the early 1970s. In the U.S., however, government bureaucrats have waged a campaign against piracetam and other noötropics, using scare tactics1 and gestapo-type actions2,3 to prevent U.S. citizens from having access to them. Despite the harrassment, many people have quietly imported small quantities from Europe for their own use.
