What is Oxiracetam?
Oxiracetam with CAS registry number 62613-82-5, is a synthetic cognitive nootropic and stimulant in the racetam family with brothers and sisters like piracetam, aniracetam, pramiracetam, phenylpiracetam, etc. Oxiracetam is said to be five times higher in potency than Piracetam-the earliest racetam in the nootropic racetam series. The main benefits of racetam ingredients are as SNS stimulants or anticonvulsants. We will make a comparison in the middle of this page.
Oxiracetam has a few other names, such as IUPAC name (RS)-2-(4-hydroxy-2-oxopyrrolidin-1-yl) acetamide and ISF 2522 in short. According to Wikipedia, oxiracetam is safe even high dosages are taken over a long term. And many studies and in vitro clinical experiments support its safety status. Oxiracetam is not a regulated drug by FDA, and it is legal to buy it in the United States, Canada, Australia, Netherlands, UK, and many other European countries.
Mechanism of action of oxiracetam
How does oxiracetam work? Like other racetam nootropics, oxiracetam acts in a similar way, but the detailed theory is complicated. The mode of action of oxiracetam is said to be something related to choline. Oxiracetam works synergistically with high levels of choline by stimulating the AMPA,NDMA, acetylcholine and glutamate receptors as well as the cholinergic systems and their pathways respectively. Acetylcholine is associated with memory and learning. Glutamate can act as toxin in the body, building up and eventually causing neurodegenerative disorders in the elderly.
Choline is the precursor of acetylcholine. Oxiracetam depletes the acetylcholine when it functions in the body. Therefore, if you want to make full use of oxiracetam to the largest extent, a choline supplement should be taken together with oxiracetam. Here our Alpha GPC (L-alpha-glycerylphosphorylcholine ) is strongly recommend to be taken accordingly.
Comparison of oxiracetam with aniracetma, piracetam
Both oxiracetam and aniracetam are good for brain health, and popular among bodybuilding fans, students, aged old men, and working staff. And then a question come out, which is better, oxiracetam, or aniracetam?
We may compare the two ingredients in three ways.
As mentioned before, oxiracetam is safe even over dose is taken over a long period, and no serious side effects occur. An ultra safe person would opt for oxiracetam and it would be safe to invest a little more money than you already have in order to achieve that extra edge in safety.
The cost of aniracetam is about half of oxiracetam per kilo. If you would love the price for aniracetam and oxiracetam, you are welcome to send an inquiry to us.
Working theory comparison
Oxiracetam works on both the acetylcholine and cholinergic systems within the brain. Unlike the other racetams,
Unlike Aniracetam, Oxiracetam does not seem to affect dopamine or serotonin receptors, and therefore does not act as a mood enhancer. Oxiracetam works purely on enhancing mental cognition and has no effect on mood or anxiety. It improves logical thinking ability and fluidity of thought. It will not help you if you are seeking relief from anxiety or depression.
Benefits of oxiracetam
Oxiracetam, as a powderful stimulant like caffeine, increases learning, memory, treats Alzheimer’s and aged related memory loss, and is widely used for neuro protective capabilities.
Oxiracetam as a Stimulant
Oxiracetam has the strongest stimulatory effect and the longest half-lives of about eight hours among the racetam class of nootropics, and help you feel better and be more focused and alert. Due to the relatively quick absorption and low bioavailability, oxiracetam enters the blood stream very quickly and immediately has an effect on the mind. Oxiracetam is a mild stimulant capable of improving focus, alertness, and attention. Its stimulating effects however, are mild and smooth compared to better known stimulants like amphetamines and xanthenes, which gives you an edgy and jittery stimulation. The stimulation of oxiracetam is not jittery, rather a case of where your brain has the ability to take in more information and data.
Oxiracetam as a Cognitive Enhancer
The best benefit of oxiracetam is for cognitive enhancement. Oxiracetam is best known as cognitive enhancer, smart drug, study pill or brain booster, which has been shown to improve memory in subjects with memory decline and also in healthy animal studies; Some of the more widely known benefits of Oxiracetam capsules are: an increase in memory function and an improvement in your learning curve with a higher level of neuroplasticity.
