Oxiracetam is part of the Racetam family of nootropics supplements and is considered one of the most effective. In fact, it is generally regarded as the best nootropic available on the market today. It is classified as an Ampakine because it stimulates both the AMPA and the NDMA receptors and related pathways. Users should be getting an adequate supply of choline in order to get the best out of Oxiracetam. It has effects that are similar to nootropics in the racetam family like Piracetam, which is the principle member of the group, though Oxiracetam’s potency is higher. It is a true cognitive enhancer because it does not effect mood or anxiety like other nootropics that are both mood enhancers and cognitive enhancers. It does not work on the brain chemicals dopamine, serotonin, or their associated receptors.

One of Oxiracetam’s main benefits is to improve memory, especially long term memory and recall. It will improve attention, focus, concentration, motivation, and the ability to think more clearly, faster, and fluidly. Oxiracetam has great benefits in both spatial and contextual learning abilities. It is effective in increasing logical thinking ability and other skills related to critical and analytical reasoning. Besides improving mental performance, it is also a neuroprotective, meaning it keeps the neurons healthy and protects them from damage. Oxiracetam works as an antioxidant in the brain by getting rid of toxins like excessive calcium. Studies suggest that it might even be helpful in treating, protecting, or possibly even reversing damage done to the brain from alcohol abuse.

There have never been any reported dangerous side effects or adverse incidents connected to Oxiracetam dosages. It is regarded as very non-toxic and safe, like other racetams. It is very well tolerated among healthy adults and there are no known cases of serious injuries or deaths related to overdoses. The most common side effect would be a headache but this should not happen if the recommended dosage is followed. Most people take a dosage between 600-3,000mg a day, taken in divided doses. Beginners should start with a low dose and gradually increase only if it is needed. Oxiracetam has a short half-life that lasts up to 2-3 hours. Frequent doses will ensure a steady level of cognitive enhancement throughout the day.
