If you are new to the benefits of Citicoline, you should know that it is a naturally occurring compound that your brain uses to work correctly. Citicoline supplements can be taken orally in order to support higher brain function and restore the cognitive mechanisms within the brain. What Exactly is Citicoline? Citicoline is a naturally-occurring brain chemical that comprises part of your brain’s building block of cell membranes. Other names that Citicoline is known by include 5-Cytidine diphosphate choline, Cytidine Diphosphocholine and Cytidinediphosphocholine. What is Citicoline Used For? Citicoline is widely used for conditions related to brain function. It is

Citicoline is a naturally occurring compound, a source of choline, which is important in the production of integral components of cellular membranes, called phospholipids. Citicoline is found in every cell of the body, and it’s particularly important for the brain, because it helps provide cognitive support. Citicoline supports both the synthesis of new phospholipids and the effective use of phospholipids from food or supplements to produce a youthful balance in the brain’s structure.
The brain experiences aging along with the body. This can present as a decrease in blood flow which may impair memory and lead to changes in cognitive skills. Age may also bring a diminished ability to access short-term information and increase short-memory degradation.
To support cognitive function and brain health, it’s important to consume the right nutrients. Citicoline is ideal for people looking to support cognitive performance and mood, or support the health and function of brain cells through the aging process.
AOR’s Citicoline offers cognitive support, helps to promote brain functioning, and is beneficial for those who experience some memory loss or have any age-related memory impairment. It also promotes optical nerve support.
Citicoline is a source of choline which promotes the normal synthesis of new phospholipids in cellular membranes.*
