How does Fasoracetam work?
Acetylcholine has a large role in the modulation of memory and learning. Increasing acetylcholine levels in certain parts of the brain have been known to enhance memory and learning abilities. . The acetylcholine receptor (AChR) is an integral membrane protein that responds to the binding of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. Fasoracetam supplementation results in increased levels of this acetylcholine neurotransmitter.
Studies on Fasoracetam
In humans, a series of experiments with a single daily dose of 100 mg Fasoracetam was undertaken on young and old subjects. There was a significant correlation between the rate of excretion of creatinine and Fasoracetam via the kidneys .
