    Very informative!! Piracetam is a drug and has no place in "supplements," called nootropics. Some of the more typical ingredients in nootropics, include ginkgo biloba, ginseng, caffeine, acetyl-L-carnitine, and resveratrol. Frequently, nootropics are confused with "smart drugs," which are popular with college kids because they pump up the brain and help them study longer, especially when cramming for an exam. Prescription drugs, adderall & ritalin, are used by college kids for this purpose. They call them smart drugs and nootropics interchangeably. But, true nootropics should never contain piracetam or any other prescription drug.
