Save Extra 12 %
Product is manufactured by AOR Supplements
- Provides citicoline from Cognizin
- Provides a small amount of choline
- Enhances the body’s production of phospholipids
Citicoline is cytidine 5'-diphosphate choline.
Citicoline plays a crucial role in the Kennedy pathway, by which the
body synthesizes phosphatidylcholine (PC) and, ultimately, other
phospholipids, such as phosphatidylserine (PS). Citicoline supports the
maintenance of good health.

What is Citicoline?
Citicoline (cytidine diphosphate choline, or CDP-choline) is not just a
source of choline, the main building block of the neurotransmitter
acetylcholine. Instead, Citicoline is a phospholipid booster. The most
popular and well-known phospholipid supplement is phosphatidylserine
(PS). But our body requires multiple types of phospholipids and not just
PS. Of course, PS supplements contain small amounts of some of the
other key phospholipids, such as (phosphatidylcholine [PC] and
phosphatidylinositol [PI]). But they don’t contain these nutrients, in
the same proportions as are found in a healthy, youthful person. Taking
individual phospholipids, such as PS, forces more of the specific
phospholipid that you’re taking into the membranes of nerve and other
cells. But it cannot restore the balance of all phospholipids.
More Than One Phospholipid?
By contrast, Citicoline works by enhancing the body’s ability to
synthesize its own phospholipids. Citicoline’s real “business end” is
its cytidine group. Taking Citicoline delivers cytidine to the cells,
where it is transformed into cytidine diphosphate (CDP). CDP plays a key
role in the body’s production of phospholipids. By supporting the
body’s ability to make its own phospholipids, Citicoline increases
levels of all phospholipids in cell membranes – yet the healthy
proportions of the various phospholipids are not altered.
Customized To Your Needs
the same time, new research suggests that Citicoline allows the body to
make better use of phospholipids derived directly from the diet or
supplements. When you take phospholipid supplements, the fatty acid
“tails” have to be modified as they are taken from the blood, then
brought into the cell’s outer membrane, so that they meet the specific
needs of the local tissue. Studies in isolated neuron precursor cells
show that Citicoline selectively enhances the ability of phospholipids
to incorporate a variety of fatty acids into their “tails,” facilitating
this “customization” process.

Citicoline is not yet well known. More popular alternatives include Ginkgo biloba, omega-3 fatty acids, phosphatidylserine (PS) or phosphatidylcholine (PC).

Citicoline provides a source of choline along with added choline for
enhanced acetylcholine production, while the cytidine end is converted
into cytidine diphosphate which enhances the natural production of all
