Jarrow Citicoline CDP Choline 250mg

Jarrow Citicoline CDP Choline 250mg

Citicoline is used by the body to produce phosphatidylcholine, the substance that makes up 30% of the brain’s grey matter. Consumption of this multifunctional ingredient improves brain metabolism for its role in the synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. These mechanisms optimise memory and other brain activities while interfering with biochemical processes leading to cognitive decline.

  • Citicoline supports healthy brain activities in the elderly with age-related memory problems. Numerous studies have linked consumption of Citicoline with healthy memory and other brain functions in people 50 years old and above.
  • Recent studies claim that citicoline may help sustain normal brain function in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and non-Alzheimer’s dementia. Its neuroprotective benefits may help improve memory, thought processing and learning.
  • Citicoline can help stroke patients towards healthy recovery. One study revealed that patients who took citicoline 24 hours after ischemic stroke achieved faster recovery time. Expert links this citicoline benefit from its neuroprotective properties against ischemia, a condition where there is inadequate blood supply to the brain.
  • Citicoline promotes healthy blood supply to the brain, which can be very useful in relieving long-term cerebrovascular diseases. Common examples of cerebrovascular diseases include transient ischemic attacks, stroke, cerebral thrombosis, cerebral embolism, and some forms of dementia.
  • Citicoline ensures that there are healthy levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine circulating in the brain. Acetylcholine regulates muscle functions, mood, and sleep. Low acetylcholine levels have been associated with insomnia and depression.
  • Emerging studies on citicoline suggest that it exhibits potential for optimising vision by nourishing the optic nerve in patients with glaucoma. Glaucoma is an eye condition wherein there is increased pressure in the eyeball that leads to optic nerve damage. This condition is progressive and when left untreated, can cause irreversible vision loss or blindness.

Citicoline is a naturally occurring substance in the body manufactured from choline and then converted to phosphatidylcholine, an important compound in brain tissues. It is also used to manufacture the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which influences muscle functions including those in the digestive tract, sleep cycle, mood, and cognitive functions. Clinical studies found that this substance exhibits protective benefits to the brain cells and allows health blood supply to the brain. As result, the brain gets more energy to perform its functions from the nourishment supplied by the blood and it is protected from damaging processes that leads to memory loss, confusion, and other forms of cognitive decline. Citicoline was originally manufactured in Japan for ischemic stroke patients. After demonstrating positive results to those who have taken it, it was introduced in Europe as a nutritional supplement. Today, it is being prescribed in European countries to improve blood circulation in the brain.
