What Are Ampakines
Ampakine nootropics are widely viewed as the most powerful type of nootropics, and help improve alertness, mental energy, memory and the ability to learn. Ampakines also have powerful long-term benefits on the brain after they’ve left the body.
A major advantage of ampakines is that they lack many of the common side effects associated with other brain stimulants, including nervousness and headaches. This makes them a good choice for people looking to boost their brain power with minimal risk, although they are not as established and freely available as traditional nootropics
How Do Ampakines Work
This class of nootropics work in a unique way – they modulate the brain’s AMPA receptors, which control, regulate and oversee the activity and transmission within the central nervous system.
Rather than simply pushing these receptors to fire faster, however, ampakines enable the AMPA receptors to stimulate activity when it’s most required. This means that users experience powerful stimulation and other effects without any commonly-experienced negative side effects of similar nootropics. Ampakines also help other receptors including NDMA.
The most prominent ampakines are Unigiram and Sunifiram. The latter is more popular as it’s more cost effective to produce and more widely stocked. Sunifiram is renowned for its ability to improve the brain’s ability to retain information and ability to learn – in fact, it is thought to be over a thousand times stronger than Piracetam.
Another ampakatine currently in the testing phase is Nooglutil – this is expected to be far more powerful than current nootropics available on the market. Another exciting group of compounds in development is the CX class, which are being developed to target Alzheimer’s and ADHD.
Ampakines are a new and exciting area of nootropics and are in a period of constant change and development.
