CDP Choline, an abbreviation of cytidine-5′-diphosphocholine, referred to as Citicoline, is an essential nutrient and precursor for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.

It is an efficient source of choline that supports overall brain function.

CDP Choline Description

CDP is one of our finest cholinergics.  Cholinergics are a type of nootropic supplement that  serves the primary function of increasing choline within the body so that your body can make a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine.  Choline is an essential nutrient which we get from foods like eggs, certain types of meats, whole grains, and cruciferous vegetables.  The body takes in the choline, and it becomes a building block for acetylcholine (5).

Acetylcholine helps neurons communicate with one another and is found in its highest amounts within the part of the brain that’s responsible for memory, learning, and attention (4).

Up to 92% of us aren’t getting enough choline from their diet alone, leaving the brain lacking what it needs to make one of the most important neurotransmitters! (4)

What does the Citicoline mean in CDP Choline?

The difference between our other cholinergics (or other products that are called “choline”) and our CDP Citicoline is that CDP Citicoline gives you an extra advantage.  One of choline’s other functions is to help keep the membranes of cells healthy and intact so that unwanted pathogens and foreign material cannot break through the cellular membrane (4).

Maintaining healthy cell membranes is part of phospholipid synthesis; and in order for choline to assist with this role, it has to convert choline in the body into citicoline first (4).

Taking citicoline directly enables the body to skip this extra step and go straight towards improving cell barriers while providing essential choline at the same time (4).

CDP Choline helps you build a great foundation in your nootropic routine, either as a standalone product or part of a customized stack!
