Coluracetam is one of the most recently created and least popular racetam nootropics; however, it is rapidly gaining popularity and has a strong group of supporters.

According to studies, it enhances cognition functions and memory. Its users have reported improved concentration, focus, and vision.

Coluracetam is a new and unique synthetic nootropic in the racetam family. It was developed initially as a possible treatment for Alzheimer’s. It has also been considered as a treatment for anxiety and depression. It has since become a popular nootropic for improving mood, boosting motivation, and promoting better vision.

Coluracetam is potent, and a much smaller dose is useful compared to other racetam class nootropics. It acts fast, reaching high levels in plasma 30 minutes after ingestion.  However, after three hours, levels in plasma decline.

In the United States, Coluracetam is unregulated and sold as a dietary supplement; its legal status varies from country to country. In Canada and the UK for example, it’s not sold legally sold except through prescription, it can, however, be legally imported and possessed.

Benefits and Effects

Most of the information available regarding this nootropic is based on animal testing. There are a few documented human studies on coluracetam, and research results and user feedback suggest that coluracetam may have a variety of both cognitive and sensory benefits.

1.  Memory and Learning

Coluracetam improves cognitive function and memory of rats; theoretically, similar results can translate to humans.

An animal study in 2010 indicated that coluracetam improved artificially-caused memory deficits without causing any significant side effects. There were positive results three days after the administration of the last dose, though the concentration of serum of coluracetam was negligible.

A group of users say coluracetam instantly improves short-term memory, improves memorization and abilities to recall, and enhances thought and the speed of learning together with the retention of information.

2. Depression and Anxiety

A clinical trial of coluracetam showed that it is useful for treatment-resistant patients suffering from both anxiety and depression.

There are various users reports concerning Coluracetam’s impacts on anxiety and depression,  some users reported that it alleviates both and is a powerful and reliable booster of the mood, others gave a piece of contrary information- it can trigger depression and anxiety.

3. Eyesight

Users have frequently given positive feedback on Coluracetam’s impact on vision. From such reports, it’s easy to say it enhances shape recognition, visual vividness and color vision. Users have reported that it makes lights brighter and improves contrast.

As much as enhanced vision is amongst the most reported benefits of coluracetam, there is no complete scientific evidence that confirms this effect.

The Working Mechanism of Coluracetam

Like most compounds in the racetam family, coluracetam majorly works through increasing the levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine; this neurotransmitter is strongly related to enhanced learning, memory, and cognitive functions.

Final Thoughts

Coluracetam, as stated before, is one of the latest and least known members of the racetam group of nootropics; however, it’s a favorite with many consumers.

It boosts the levels of the acetylcholine, “a learning neurotransmitter,” which may in turn boost cognition.
