Racetams are a family of synthetic chemicals with a promising selection of nootropic capacities. While each racetam is a bit different from the others, their functions are similar. By boosting the oxygen, nutrients, and brain-fuel (glucose) traveling through the blood, the brain is better supplied. This improves the brains stamina to function longer, reduces degeneration of brain cells, and increases focus and concentration.
- Subgroup 1 drugs include piracetam, oxiracetam, aniracetam, pramiracetam and phenylpiracetam, have been used in humans and some of which are available as dietary supplements. Of these, oxiracetam and aniracetam possess glutamate modulating effects, thereby affecting memory. Pramiracetam reportedly improved cognitive deficits associated with traumatic brain injuries (1).
- Aniracetam users have positive effects in mood, memory, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), motion sickness, and sleep disorders (2).
- Oxiracetam increases the release of acetylcholine and utilization in the cerebral cortex and hippocampus parts of the brain (3).
- In comparison to other racetams, Oxiracetam does not act on serotonin or dopamine levels in the brain, like Aniracetam. That makes Oxiracetam a true or pure nootropic as it can only be used for cognitive enhancement. When compared to Piracetam, Oxiracetam is several times more potent (4).

It should be noted that racetams are not exactly stimulants, though some varieties have stimulating effects. These nootropics can allow the mind to have extensive stamina and endurance. It does so without the adverse effects of excessive caffeine or prescription medications like Ritalin or Adderall. The racetam family is a large group of compounds. Some of the most popular racetams used as nootropics are piracetam, aniracetam, oxiracetam, pramiracetam, and phenylpiracetam. Even though these compounds are all in the same group, they vary in their uses.
The racetams bundle offers a great opportunity for new nootropic users to test out how they respond to various compounds. It makes understanding your unique brain chemistry a lot easier.
