Oxiracetam is part of the Racetams group of Nootropics. The key benefits promote improved concentration, attention span, thought processes and memory.
What is Oxiracetam?
Oxiracetam is part of a group of Nootropics called Racetams supplements. It is thought to improve different cognitive functions.
Oxiracetam supplement is thought to be a true cognitive enhancer, a smart drug, that is not found in our food sources but is easily put to use when ingested and is water soluble. It is classified as an Ampakine due to how it works on improving learning capacities and memory.
Research on Oxiracetam, have shown potential positive cognitive benefits including clearer thoughts, higher attention span, concentration is improved and better memory retention is achieved.
Clinical studies of Oxiracetam have been quite impressive. It is thought to not only have positive cognitive effects but it may also potentially reverse and prevent natural cognitive decline in healthy ageing people.
Studies suggest that it is potent and safe to use over long periods of time, however further research needs to be done.
It is currently not approved by the FDA for medical use (pharmaceutical drug) in the United States but is considered to be safe to use as a cognitive supplement.
This supplements is thought to have many positive effects on our cognition. The primary key benefits associated with Oxiracetam is memory enhancement, particularly in long-term and recall and improved logical thought processes.
Oxiracetam is thought to improve focus and concentration. Also aiding in thinking faster, providing a longer attention span and improving motivation and mental energy.
For this reason, Oxiracetam is widely used among students and individuals who work in professions that require the breaking down of information or high mental concentration. Also, many people use Oxiracetam to improve their overall mental energy.
It is also thought to help the brain expel toxins. Working as an antioxidant to keep the brain cells healthy and prevent damage due to toxins and poisons. This may be the reason some people use this supplement to battle age related cognitive decline.
Oxiracetam is also thought to reverse the damage done to the brain from over usage of alcohol consumption. More research needs to be done on this.
Currently, research has limited evidence whether Oxiracetam can treat people with cognitive conditions such as Dementia and Alzheimers but is still ongoing.

How Oxiracetam Works
Oxiracetam functions similarly to other Racetam Nootropics including Aniracetam and Phenylpiracetam and it’s potency is greater than Piracetam.
In some people, it offers a greater capability for focus than some other Racetams where the emphasis on mood is greater.
Although it’s full mechanism is not completely understood, it is thought to regulate and enhance two major neurotransmitters responsible for cognitive function, glutamate and Acetylcholine.
It is part of the Ampkines group because it stimulates positive AMPA & NDMA receptors for glutamate that transmits quickly into the central nervous system.
Acetylcholine is a chemical or neurotransmitter which is responsible for sending signals between the neurons that effect our attention, motivation and memory. Glutamate works on our memory retention.
Oxiracetam Stacking Options
Stacking Nootropics means using two at the same time to either enhance or supplement the effect.This is done because each Nootropic has it’s own unique effect and can’t provide all cognitive benefits in one supplement.
Like all racetams, it is recommended to take a high quality choline supplement such as Alpha GPC when taking Oxyracetam to reduce the risk of headaches.
Oxyracetam also is said to work well with other racetams that will heighten your mood and motivation.
