Citicoline is cytidine 5'-diphosphate choline. Citicoline plays a crucial role in the Kennedy pathway, by which the body synthesizes phosphatidylcholine (PC) and, ultimately, other phospholipids, such as phosphatidylserine (PS). Citicoline supports the maintenance of good health.
Citicoline is cytidine diphosphate choline, or CDP-choline, and is extremely important for protecting brain cells after a stroke or concussion. The main component of Citicoline is its cytidine group, which is what Citicoline delivers to the brain. Rather than just supplying a single phospholipid, Citicoline boosts the brain's balanced production of its own array of essential phospholipids, including phosphatidylserine (PS), phospatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylinositol (PI) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE). Phospholipids are fundamental in the synthesis of neurotransmitters and the proper functioning of neural cell membranes - both highly significant factors for healthy cognitive function.
Citicoline has been shown to support memory in patients with age-associated memory impairment as well as brain cell recovery from injuries such as stroke or concussion. Citicoline also increases the production of key neurotransmitters, including acetylcholine, norepinephrine, dopamine, and serotonin, all of which are essential for mood balance and memory. Citicoline also supports nerves in the eye, and studies administering Citicoline to patients with lazy-eye and other vision disorders have noted beneficial results. Overall, Citicoline is ideal for those looking to support cognitive performance, memory, mood or support the health and function of brain cells during aging or after a brain injury (ie concussions and strokes).
Take 2 AOR Citicoline capsules daily with/without food, or as directed by a qualified health care practitioner.
