New Product: Citicholine
We have added another new magnificent product to our research compounds available in our store!
What Is Citicholine?
Citicholine or CDB Choline is crucial for the production of phospholipids such as phosphatidylcholine. These molecules build cell membranes and protective nerve coatings in the body.
Citicholine is a more complex molecule than regular choline, or even alpha-GPC, but it is identical to what your brain naturally makes.
To avoid confusion we call it citicholine when given as therapy and CDP-choline when it’s produced in the body.
After administration, it releases two compounds: cytidine and choline.
After they pass the blood-brain barrier, neurons in the brain use them to make citicholine and other phospholipids.
Choline boosts acetylcholine and other neurotransmitters that keep the nervous system running smoothly.
The body transforms citicholine into a number of other beneficial compounds. For this reason, citicholine may have more benefits than regular choline.
How Does It Work?
Citicholine increases the production of neurotransmitters and cellular building blocks.
Besides acetylcholine, it also boosts norepinephrine and dopamine in the brain.
So it enhances brain blood flow and stimulates mitochondria to produce more energy.
Sufficient levels of CDP-choline preserve phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin, which build the protective nerve sheet called myelin.
Citicholine also inhibits the inflammatory enzyme phospholipase A2 and boosts the master antioxidant glutathione.
In short, citicholine works by balancing neurotransmitters and protecting the nervous system from oxidative and age-related damage.
Benefits Of Citicholine
Citcholine is found in a lot of natural foods but for your research project you might prefer the research compound to administer because of the better absorption
The most important benefits*:
- Cognitive enhancement
Citicholine improves memory and behavior as well as blood flow in the brain. It also enhances mental focus and sharpens the mind.
- Stroke recovery improvement
Citicholine helps stroke recovery by strengthening nerve membranes and blocking free radical production.
- Improvement of vision problems
Citicholine helps to improve specific vision problems like glaucoma, lazy eye…
- Protection from brain damage
Citicholine protects the brain and spinal cord against these stressors by preserving the cells’ myelin sheath and boosting vital neurotransmitters.
- Improvement of mental disorders
In addition to other medications, citicholine improves mental disorders like feelings of anxiety, depression and schizophrenia
- Fights drug addictions
Citicholine helps reducing drug use and to keep up mood during drug withdrawal
So you see that citicholine is a magnificent product for specific types of research.
*benefits have not been reviewed by the Food and Drugs Administration and are summarized from clinical trials.
