What is Cognizin Citicoline?
Citicoline, sometimes also referred to as CDP Choline, is one of the best forms of choline available. Unlike Alpha GPC, which is better suited to physical activity in terms of secondary benefits, Citicoline actually has a number of reported secondary benefits which affect cognitive function, and we believe that it is a more effective source of choline. Here's why.
It crosses the blood-brain barrier with ease. 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.
Furthermore, it is useful for improving memory retention and there are links to Citicoline improving visual function.
Citicoline is said to increase the density of dopamine (the feel-good hormone) receptors in the brain, as well as amplify the release of the vital hormones within the HPA (Hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal) axis of the brain.
