  1. Fasoracetam review/What is Fasoracetam ?


Fasoracetam, a novel cognition enhancer, is a high-potency nootropic drug of the racetam family. Other names for fasoracetam include the following: Fasoracetam [INN]; NS 105 (pharmaceutical); NS-105; N-(5-Oxo-D-prolyl) piperidine .

  1. How does Fasoracetam Work ?


This drug works by modulating the cyclic adenosine monophosphate which is a secondary messenger essential in many biological reactions within the body. This way it can be utilized in the treatment of cognitive deficiencies since it stimulates the opening and closing of HCN channels in the brain. Hence, it can be used to enhance the cognitive capabilities of ageing people.

Furthermore, the drug fasoracetam also enhances the uptake of choline owing to its high affinity for it. It works much like another racetam drug called the coluracetam. It acts as a positive modulator of these cholinergic receptors which in return increase the receptors’ cognitive functions.

In addition to the above receptors, the fasoracetam also binds to GABA receptors. Numerous reports have indicated the existence of excitatory GABA receptors. One would assume that these are the receptors that this drug binds to. Hence, this nootropic drug can improve cognitive functions this way too.

According to a study, fasoracetam, known as NS-105 in the academic parlance, has the ability to stimulate glutamate receptors that are metabotropic. This enhances both learning and memory actions of the brain. You should, therefore, expect to increase your intelligence by around 30 per cent.

Therefore, we can say that fasoracetam works on three target receptors to achieve the same results. First, it works on the choline neurotransmitter by improving its receptor activity. Then, secondly it elicits the increase of the GABA receptors. Thirdly, it works on the glutamate receptors as well. All of these phenomena work in tandem to enhance the cognitive capabilities of patients.
