- Helps with brain metabolism.
- Enhances the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine.
In clinical trials, citicoline has been shown to increase norepinephrine and dopamine levels in the central nervous system. Oral citicoline, with its two main components, cytidine and Choline, are fully absorbed into the bloodstream and crosses the blood-brain barrier. Citicoline triggers biogenesis of structural phospholipids of neuronal membranes, improves the brain's metabolic processes, and influences the quantities of different neurotransmitters. Citicoline benefit
Citicoline may protect nerve cells in low oxygen environments. Citicoline has also affected cognitive functions in animal studies. Citicoline may be effective in the treatment of cerebral vascular disease, which may lead to a stroke. It may be beneficial in the healing of varying degrees of head trauma and various cognitive disorders. Citicoline may aid the recovery process from a post-traumatic coma and those who have had a stroke. Citicoline may improve age-related cognitive decline, and degenerative neurological diseases. Additional research may determine that citicoline could improve the symptoms associated with Parkinson disease, various addictions, and alcoholism.

Serving Size: 1 Caplet(s)
|Ingredients||Per Serving||% DV|
|Citicoline (from stabilized cytidine 5'diphosphocholine)|| 250 mg ||*|
|* Daily Value Not Established|
Notes: Citicoline [stabilized CDP Choline (cytidine 5’diphosphocholine)] is a naturally occurring, water soluble, biological compound that is an intermediate for the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a major constituent of the grey matter of brain tissue (30%).*
Scientific research demonstrates that Citicoline consumption promotes brain metabolism by enhancing the synthesis of acetyl-choline, restoring phospholipid content in the brain and affecting neuronal membrane excitability and osmolarity (by its effect on the ATP-dependent sodium and potassium pump).*
Other Ingredients: Rice flour, magnesium stearate (vegetable source), and silicon dioxide. Capsule consists of gelatin.
No wheat, no gluten, no soy, no dairy, no egg, no fish/shellfish, no nuts/tree nuts.
