What is Citicoline?
Citicoline powder is one of the best forms of choline you can buy. Unlike GPC, which is better suited to physical activity in terms of side-benefits, Citicoline (CDP) actually has a number of reported side-benefits which directly affect cognitive functions and we believe that it is a more effective source of choline. Here’s why:
It crosses the blood-brain barrier with ease, as it should. This is partly because it is naturally occurring within the brain during certain chemical processes, but also because there are studies which demonstrate its positive effects on mental energy and focus/concentration and that it can be helpful for treating ADHD.¹²
Furthermore, it is useful for improving memory retention³ and there are links to Citicoline improving visual function in patients with conditions such as glaucoma.⁴⁵
CDP Choline is said to increase the density of dopamine (the feel-good hormone) receptors in the brain⁶, as well as amplify the release of the vital hormones within the HPA (Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal) axis of the brain.⁷
