Citicoline quickly breaks down into choline and cytidine after oral consumption. Each of these compounds then enters their respective metabolic pathways. That means that citicoline delivers all the benefits of choline. The cytidine component, however, gives citicoline unique advantages. Cytidine rapidly metabolizes into uridine, which crosses the blood-brain barrier. Once in the brain, uridine helps to resynthesize choline into phosphatidylcholine for nerve-cell membrane growth. Although all forms of choline support acetylcholine production, citicoline has been uniquely found to also support the production of dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. And citicoline has the added advantage of supporting mitochondrial function and energy production in the brain. Some have suggested that citicoline may have a better safety profile than other forms of choline. In a 2019 article published in Nutrients, researchers proposed that citicoline is less likely than other choline sources to metabolize into trimethylamine (TMA) or its n-oxide (TMAO). Because TMA and TMAO may pose some danger to human health, this could give citicoline a safety advantage.

I have been looking for an acetylcholine product for a long time. My grandson has brain damage from drowning but was progressing well. He got botox injections for spasticity and he began neuro decline worse than the initial accident. Botox blocks acetylcholine. I have been searching for the right supplements to enhance and protect neurons and firing. Ive been giving him this with a dopamine enhancer as well as hydrolized collagen peptides. Its only been two weeks but the other day..after 7 years..he laughed. I will continue this for a while and see what else he can do. He has been more aware and interactive. I hope to see more improvements after a month or so. I believe i will.

Excellent quality choline supplement. Size of pills are small which is a bonus. Ingredients are great. Only downside is that it is a little more expensive than some of the cheap basic choline supplements out there, but citicoline is supposed to be a better form of choline from what I understand. Recommended!

This is a miracle product, really. I didn't have high expectations just because I've tried so many things, and this was just one more to try. I have been suffering with terrible cognitive and memory issues due to being on long term steroid medication, and this makes a huge difference. I can suddenly remember words again, and when I go to do something and forget why I'm standing there, it actually does come back to me again after a few seconds now. Before this product, I would almost be in tears from frustration of not being able to remember what I wanted to say, and going upstairs only to have no idea why I was there and it not coming back to me at all.

The oral bioavailability of citicoline exceeds 90%, its metabolites cross the blood- brain barrier, and citicoline is resynthesized in the brain after oral consumption. In healthy adults citicoline has been shown that oral dose of citicoline is rapidly absorbed with greater than 90-percent bioavailability. Citicoline helps memory loss due to aging, improves vision in people with glaucoma, and helps with recovery in stroke patients. It is also used for Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, bipolar disorder, lazy eye, and other conditions of the brain.

I open the capsules and use 50mg a day, since 250mg daily for me seems to be way too much, it makes me very sleepy and gives me a brain fog, since the half-life of elimination for the choline spike seen with supplemental CDP-choline appears to be fairly delayed, like 4-5 days. Too much of the choline buildup and it makes it for worse. A big plus is that, using only 50-75 mg a day, this bottle will last for more than a year, which makes it a perfect bang for the buck!

My adult son wanted to try CDP Choline instead of the Adderall he has been on for years when in school. He is only in his first month of using it, but he is very happy with his results. Yay!!!

Seems to have improved my tingling and sleep; and lowered my heart rate. However I have only taken this for about 10 days. Need more time to find out if this supplement really works in the long term. I have also re-started taking D-Ribose, so I don’t know if that’s due to D-Ribose or extra choline.
