What is Citicoline?
Citicoline is a nootropic supplement, also known as cytidine-5'-di-phosphocholine, and is a naturally occurring compound found in the body's cells. The supplement derives from cytidine and choline, bound via two phosphate groups. The presence of cytidine and choline allows citicoline to be converted into uridine, which supports the acetylcholine and phospholipid metabolism. Phospholipids are an essential molecule of the cell membrane and support adequate function in cells. The mechanisms behind Citicoline may support improvements in attention, brain metabolism, and memory. In studies, citicoline has been shown to have neuroprotective properties.

How Does Citicoline Work?
Cytidine and choline make up the supplement Citicoline, bound by the two phosphate groups. The presence of cytidine and choline together allows it to convert into uridine, which supports the metabolism of acetylcholine and phospholipids. Phospholipid molecules are essential to the creation of cell membranes and support adequate function in cells. The mechanisms behind Citicoline may support improvements in attention, brain metabolism, and memory. Citicoline is also believed to produce a brain chemical known as phosphatidylcholine.
