This is what Joanna Loveys from Clinicians has to tell us about Citicoline
Citicoline - Viagra for the brain?
What is Citicoline?
Citicoline is a water soluble, naturally occurring substance found in every cell of the body which is involved in the synthesis of phospholipids. Phospholipids are important because they make up approx. 30% of brain tissue, provide essential protection for neurons, and aid in neural communication. Citicoline acts as an intermediary between choline and phosphatidylcholine - the most abundant phospholipid in all our cell membranes - which decreases as we age. This is thought to be a factor in age-related decline in cognitive function. Citicoline has demonstrated a number of cognitive enhancing and neuroprotective properties. Once ingested, Citicoline is broken down in the small intestine and absorbed into the bloodstream as choline (a B vitamin) and cytidine. Choline and citidine readily circulate throughout the body and and cross easily over the blood brain barrier again where they are converted back to Citicoline.
What can citicoline do for me?
Our brains read, think, remember and process information continuously, all day, every day. It is still working while we sleep! Your brain makes up only 2% of your body weight but it consumes roughly 20% of your body's energy when at rest. If we are performing mental tasks then the brain requires even more energy. For you to stay alert and focused throughout the day your brain needs a lot of nutrition and energy.
How well do you feed your brain?
Do you feel confused, unclear, unsure, perplexed, disoriented, and bewildered? Would you like to do all you can to support good cognitive function?
Good cognitive function means that our brain can process information fast and efficiently. Citicoline supports brain health by increasing energy reserves in the brain, enhancing mental focus and concentration and improving memory recall and storage. It does this by keeping the brains energy production centres firing, increasing cellular energy in the brain and increasing levels of several neurotransmitters including acetylcholine, a brain chemical that regulates memory and cognitive function.
What else can I do for healthy brain function?
We now know that cognitive decline is already evident in middle age (age 45-49) so it is never too early to start feeding your brain. Staying active and including regular aerobic exercise, doing brain exercises like Sudoku and crosswords, avoiding neuro toxins like aluminium and mercury and making sure your iron levels are tip top will help protect brain function. Adding a magnesium and a fish oil daily is highly recommended.
