What is Oxybrain® Cognitive Enhancer?
Oxybrain® Cognitive Enhancer improves memory, increases mental alertness and concentration as well as boosts energy levels and wakefulness. It helps improve nerve conduction, protects the brain against damage from harmful chemicals in the brain that is responsible for such unpleasant changes, and enhances brain function. It also improves thoughts, behavior and enhances the quality of life.
Oxybrain® Cognitive Enhancer Tablets may be taken with or without food, preferably at the same time each day. Take it at the same time each day as this helps to maintain a consistent level of medicine in the body. Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor and if you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember it. Do not skip any doses and finish the full course of treatment even if you feel better. It is important that this medication is not stopped suddenly without talking to your doctor as it may worsen your symptoms.
Some common side effects of this medicine include stomach upset, rash, flushing (sense of warmth in the face, ears, neck, and trunk), nervousness, and abnormality of voluntary movements. However, these are temporary and usually resolve on their own. Please consult your doctor if these do not subside or bother you. This medicine may cause weight gain and to control it, you should have a balanced diet and exercise regularly.
Oxybrain® Cognitive Enhancer ingredients
Oxybrain® Cognitive Enhancer is a combination of three medicines: Ginkgo Biloba, Piracetam, and Vinpocetine.
Ginkgo Biloba is a tree with leaves that have been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries to treat ailments of the brain, heart, and lungs. While Ginkgo Biloba teas and tinctures are most common in Eastern medicine, it is also available as an herbal supplement and a medical-grade tablet Oxybrain. In clinical trials, Ginkgo Biloba failed to prevent cognitive decline or dementia but it might improve memory in those with dementia and is generally considered safe.
Research has shown that Ginkgo Biloba extract is able to increase blood flow overall and stimulate blood supply to extremities in the body, including the skin and essential systems, properly oxygenating the entire system and boosting energy and strength. This increase in blood flow also may help people who have poor circulation, allowing them to perform better in physical activity. Some early research has shown positive effects of taking ginkgo on reducing PMS symptoms, including mood swings, headaches, anxiety, fatigue, and muscle pain. It also appears to have beneficial effects on mood and cognition in postmenopausal women and can help improve similar benefits.
Piracetam increases blood flow to the brain and protects it from damage by harmful chemical substances (free radicals). Nootropics, or smart drugs, are natural or synthetic substances intended to improve your mental performance. Piracetam is considered the first nootropic drug of its kind. It’s a popular synthetic derivative of the neurotransmitter gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA), a chemical messenger that helps slow down activity in your nervous system. However, piracetam doesn’t appear to affect your body in the same way as GABA. In fact, researchers still aren’t entirely sure how it functions. That said, studies link the drug to several benefits, including improved brain function, reduced dyslexia symptoms, and fewer myoclonic seizures.
Research suggests that taking piracetam may enhance brain function. Though it’s unclear why, animal studies provide potential reasons. For example, animal studies indicate that piracetam makes cell membranes more fluid. This makes it easier for cells to send and receive signals, which aids communication. That could be a reason why its effects appear to be stronger in older adults and people with mental issues, as research shows that their cell membranes tend to be less fluid. Other studies observe that piracetam increases your brain’s blood supply, as well as oxygen and glucose consumption, especially in people with mental impairment. Piracetam may improve mental performance, but its effects take time to appear. Human studies on piracetam and cognition are dated, and newer studies are needed.
Dyslexia is a learning disorder, which makes it harder to learn, read, and spell. Research indicates that piracetam may help people with dyslexia learn and read better. Piracetam appears to aid learning and comprehension in children and adults with dyslexia, but newer studies are needed before it can be recommended. Myoclonic seizures are described as sudden involuntary muscle spasms. They can make day-to-day activities like writing, washing, and eating difficult. Multiple studies have found that piracetam may protect against myoclonic seizures. For example, a case study in a 47-year-old woman who experienced myoclonic seizures noted that taking 3.2 grams of piracetam daily stopped her myoclonic jerks. Piracetam may reduce myoclonic seizure symptoms, which include impairments in the ability to write, wash, and eat.
Dementia describes a group of symptoms that affect your memory, ability to perform tasks, and communicate. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia. Research suggests that damage caused by the build-up of amyloid-beta peptides may play a role in its development. These peptides tend to clump together between nerve cells and disrupt their function. Test-tube studies show that piracetam may protect against dementia and Alzheimer’s disease by preventing damage caused by amyloid-beta peptide build-up. Piracetam may improve mental performance in people with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and brain impairment. However, its long-term effects on mental performance in these groups are still not well understood.
Inflammation is a natural response that helps your body heal and fight diseases. Nonetheless, persistent, low-level inflammation has been linked to many chronic conditions, including cancer, diabetes, and heart and kidney disease. In animal studies, piracetam has been shown to have antioxidant properties, which means it can reduce inflammation by helping neutralize free radicals, which are potentially harmful molecules that can damage your cells. Animal studies show that piracetam may reduce inflammation and provide pain relief, but human studies are needed before it can be recommended for this use.
Piracetam is a synthetic nootropic that may boost mental performance. Its positive effects on the brain seem more apparent in older adults, as well as people with mental impairment, dementia, or learning disorders, such as dyslexia. That said, very few studies on piracetam exist, and most of the research is dated, so new research is needed before it can be recommended. Piracetam is relatively safe for most people. Still, if you’re taking medication or have any medical disorders, speak to your healthcare provider before trying this drug.
Vinpocetine works by further protecting the brain and nervous system from shortness of oxygen and also affects various channels on nerve cells. Vinpocetine is a man-made chemical. Its structure is similar to a substance found in the periwinkle plant. People use vinpocetine as medicine. People use vinpocetine for improving memory and thinking skills, boosting energy, weight loss, and many other conditions, but there is no good scientific evidence to support these uses. It is not known exactly how vinpocetine works, but it might increase blood flow to the brain and offer some protection for brain cells (neurons) against injury.
Diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, that interfere with thinking. Vinpocetine might have a small effect on the decline of thinking skills due to various causes, but most studies have lasted 4 months or less. Most of the studies were published prior to 1990, and the results are hard to interpret because they used a variety of terms and criteria for cognitive decline and dementia.
Vinpocetine is a synthetic compound derived from vincamine, a substance found naturally in the leaves of the lesser periwinkle plant (Vinca minor). Vinpocetine was developed in the late 1960s and is available as a prescription drug in Europe and Japan under the brand names Cavinton, Cavinton Forte, Intelectol, and others. Vinpocetine initially gained notice because it was said to increase blood flow to the brain, an effect some believed could improve symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. Others have ascribed it with thermogenic properties, suggesting that it could “burn fat” or enhance exercise performance.
