Oxiracetam is one of the first two(the other being Ani) well-studied derivative-sprout branches of the protonoot, Piracetam.
Like other racetams, it has been seen to enhance brain metabolization and increase ATP/LTP production, as well as modulate AMPA/NMDA receptors, acetylcholine levels, and general communication of the brain’s hemispheres in a positive way.
A few noticeable characteristics that make Oxiracetam stand out from its racetam brethren are:
1. Roughly 3-8x more potent than Piracetam
2. Mild central nervous system stimulant(‘caffeine-like’ in its effects)
3. Leans towards logic-based forms of cognition and enhancing auditory depth
4. Unlike every other racetam, has a very sweet, only slightly bitter taste
In one animal study, pregnant rats were fed Oxiracetam steadily over their pregnancy to test its teratological(developmental abnormalities) effects on their young. The young were not only born perfectly healthy, but were noticeably more curious and adaptable than the control group in a myriad of tests taken over the course of both groups lives.
An essential nutrient, Choline is the precursor to a neurotransmitter heavily involved in memory and nerve communication. It can be found naturally in fattier proteins such as poultry, eggs, milk and almonds. It has an especially synergistic reaction with racetams, fueling their effects.
Choline supplements are often taken as a form of ‘smart drug’ or nootropic, due to the role the neurotransmitter acetylcholine plays in various cognition systems within the brain. Choline is a chemical precursor or “building block” needed to produce acetylcholine, and research suggests that memory, intelligence, and mood are mediated at least in part by acetylcholine metabolism in the brain.
