Studying & Academic Performance
Oxiracetam is a racetam nootropic and smart drug used to promote
cognitive function. Research shows positive effects for attention
span, memory, and mental energy.
Oxiracetam has similar effects to other members of the racetam
family, but is 3-5 times more potent than Piracetam, from which it
It has a long biological half-life of up to 8 hours with a similar
onset of effects between 30 – 90 minutes. This nootropic
demonstrates a higher rate of oral bioavailability than Piracetam.
HOW IT WORKS
Heightens focus, alertness & perception
Promotes analytical thinking & memory

Oxiracetam has been shown improve symptoms of cognitive dysfunction
in the treatment of dementia and other forms of mental impairment.
This racetam nootropic has not been studied as a cognitive enhancer
in healthy, young adults. All of the evidence we have of its
purported nootropic benefits in this population comes from
anecdotal user reviews.
It has been studied in healthy experimental animals and has
improved learning and memory. This suggests it may be able to
promote brain function in normal humans.
Medical Uses Of Oxiracetam
There has been limited medical use of Oxiracetam compared to other
nootropic drugs. It has not been widely prescribed for therapeutic
Over 50 different human clinical trials have been conducted to
determine the effects of this cognitive enhancer. Many studies have
been conducted in Italy where it was first developed and marketed.
Some research suggests that it has the potential to improve
cognitive function in individuals with impairments due to aging,
multi-infarct dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.
It has also been studied in models of traumatic brain injury and in
patients with organic brain syndrome due to prolonged exposure to
organic solvents. It is of interest for its potential use in
epilepsy, stroke recovery, post-concussion syndrome, motor
dysfunction and other neurological problems.
