Oxiracetam is a chemical compound related to piracetam, phenylpiracetam, and the “racetam” series. It is considered a nootropic, a substance which tends to have stimulant, hypermnesic (memory-enhancing) effects. Oxiracetam has been purported to have cognition and memory enhancing effects. It is considered fairly safe and non-toxic in humans, and is not considered to pose any major health risks. Like other racetams, it acts as a positive allosteric modulator of the AMPA receptors, and also the mGlu receptors. Oxiracetam has two stereoisomers, the R and S isomers. The S isomer is considered the most active as a nootropic, with the R isomer having less potent effects.
