The brain is constantly being attacked by various factors of our lifestyle including environmental pollution,internal toxicity, stress and a lack of proper diet and nutrients. Cognizin may help combat the ravages of these effects by stimulating the nervous system process to maintain optimum sustainability of the molecular environment of the brain, enabling us to retain our ability to think cognitively and improve our memories.

Citicoline is a generic name for supplemental CDP-choline, a natural substance found in all living cells. In human health, CDP-choline plays important roles in the formation of cell membranes and in supporting healthy brain function. Citicoline is sometimes called the brain nutrient because of its roles in supporting cognition and memory.
Sources of citicoline
There is very little citicoline in foods. The highest amounts are found in organ foods (liver and brains) that are not widely consumed in the United States. Some citicoline can be formed from the B vitamin choline, which is found in beef and eggs. Citicoline is available as a dietary supplement marketed under the brand name Cognizin®.
Citicoline roles in health
The primary biochemical roles of citicoline are maintaining brain cell membranes and supporting synthesis of neurotransmitters, the chemical messengers that enable brain and nerve cells to transmit information from one to another. Studies have also shown that citicoline helps boost brain energy. These roles may translate into functional benefits for brain health, particularly for maintaining healthy cognitive functioning in aging. As early as age 22 we begin to lose neurons at the rate of about one per second, or 31 million per year. Age-related changes also include a decrease in the number and efficiency of the connections between neurons, decreased energy production, and decreased production of neurotransmitters. As a result, cells can become sluggish in their communications with each other. This process is normal and is why people occasionally experience forgetfulness, slower reaction time and dulling of senses such as sight, taste and smell as they become older. Cognizin® citicoline has been shown in scientific studies to help support brain health and function.
