Promotes Brain Metabolism
Citicoline [stabilized CDP Choline (cytidine 5' diphosphocholine)] is a naturally occurring, water soluble biological compound that is an essential intermediate for the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a major constituent of the gray matter of brain tissue (30%). Citicoline is metabolized to yield the free nucleotide cytidine and choline. Scientific research demonstrates that Citicoline consumption promotes brain metabolism by enhancing the synthesis of acetylcholine, restoring phospholipid content in the brain and regulation of neuronal membrane excitability and osmolarity (by its effect on the ATP-dependent sodium and potassium pump).
Citicoline (cytidine diphosphate choline, or CDP-choline) is not just a source of choline, the main building block of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Instead, Citicoline is a brain phospholipid booster. The most popular and well-known brain phospholipids supplement is phosphatidylserine (PS). But brain function relies on a wide spectrum of phospholipids, and not just PS. Of course, PS supplements contain small amounts of some of the other key brain phospholipids, such as (phosphatidylcholine [PC] and phosphatidylinositol [PI]). But they donít contain these nutrients, in the same proportions as are found in a healthy, functioning brain. Taking individual phospholipids, such as PS, forces more of the specific phospholipid that youíre taking into the membranes of nerve and other cells. But it cannot restore the youthful balance of all brain phospholipids.
