Citicoline is cytidine diphosphate choline or CDP-choline, a nutrient that has been shown to support memory in patients with age-associated memory impairment, and brain cell recovery from injuries such as stroke or concussion. The main component of citicoline is its cytidine group, which is what citicoline delivers to the brain.
It is one of the most widely used and researched cognitive health ingredients worldwide since its development in the 70s. There are over 95 human clinical trials. As we age, our brain cells break down due to decreased energy metabolism and blood circulation. Xerenoos® is a proprietary form of citicoline that has numerous clinical studies. It has been shown to stimulate the production of membrane phospholipids in the brain cells and to reduce this breakdown.
