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.
