Vitacost Neurocholine w/Cognizin® Citicoline -- 800 mg per serving - 60 Capsules

Powerful brain formula supports memory and cognitive function for healthy mental performance.* Helps protect and preserve neural tissue for optimal brain health.*. What is Vitacost Neurocholine with Cognizin® Citicoline? Vitacost Neurocholine with Cognizin Citicoline is a specially formulated brain-health supplement to help protect neurons and nourish the brain with essential nutrients required for optimal function. The brain is constantly attacked by various lifestyle factors including environmental pollution oxidative stress poor diet and lack of exercise. Over time this loss contributes to measurable deficits in cognitive function and memory. Research indicates that Cognizin Citicoline from Kyowa Hakko has a targeted action for increasing mental activity and may be vital in reversing age-related changes in the brain.*. Cognizin Citicoline is a patented proprietary form of the B vitamin citicoline. Citicoline is the generic name for synthetic cytidine diphosphate choline (CDP-choline) an organic molecule produced endogenously and found in all living cells. Citicoline is broken down in the body into choline and cytidine. These compounds are used by neurons to build and repair phospholipids the main structural components of cell membranes. Phospholipids are fatty acid compounds that help repair and maintain the structure of neuronal cell membranes as well as modulate fluidity and function. Because cell membranes have a very high turnover rate phospholipids must be continuously synthesized to ensure adequate function of cells. CDP-choline is a precursor for the synthesis of cell-membrane phospholipids including phosphatidylcholine phosphatidylserine and phosphatidyl-ethanolamine. Phosphatidylcholine is required for cell division and growth with subsequent effects on brain structure and function. Phosphatidylcholine levels in brain cell membranes are known to decline with age potentially leading to poor cognitive health.  . Besides enhancing the brain’s ability to synthesize phospholipids citicoline is also used to produce neurotransmitters including dopamine noradrenaline and acetylcholine (crucial for memory and cognitive function).*. How does Vitacost Neurocholine with Cognizin® Citicoline support health? Helps maintain optimal memory and cognitive function with aging.*. May act as an antioxidant to preserve normal healthy visual function.*. Citicoline is often called a “brain nutrient” because it increases levels of several important neurotransmitters including dopamine noradrenaline and aetylcholine (crucial for memory and cognitive function); and helps maintain the integrity of neuronal cell membranes.*. Choline deficiency affects the expression of genes involved in cell proliferation differentiation and apoptosis (programmed cell death).*. Why choose Vitacost Neurocholine w/Cognizin® Citicoline?

This product seems to work wonders
 February 22, 2014
"I originally purchased this product for my mother when I noticed her memory and concentration was becoming scattered. Since she has been using this product her memory and concentration has vastly improved. She's back to doing her daily crosswords and sudoku puzzles.
I've started taking this product after seeing my mother's improvement and my memory and focus has also improved.
