Uridine is known for supporting mood by increasing dopamine levels, and has even shown effective in treating some cases of depression. It also contributes to an increase levels of RNA, which can positively increase both short and long term memory as well as overall cognition. Uridine may be more effective for brain health and mood when combinied with a choline source and DHA.
Recommended dosage for Uridine is generally one 250mg capsule two times daily.
Mode of Action
Uridine is a precursor to CDP choline, meaning once ingested, your body metabolizes it into CDP choline, which turn increases production of phosphatidylcholine. Phosphatidylcholine is shown to play role in many functions both cognitive and physical including maintaining cell structure, fat metabolism, memory, nerve signaling, and liver health. It is also a precursor to acetylcholine.
Research shows Uridine supplementation is safe and well-tolerated when following suggested dosages. Toxicity with side effects occurs at dosages exceeding 10g.
