Cognizin is the brand name of cdp-choline
October 17 2016

A proprietary form of citicoline, Cognizin is a brain-health nutrient that's been clinically studied to support mental energy, focus, attention and recall. Developed through a patented fermentation process, Cognizin is a stable, pure ingredient that's allergen-free, vegetarian and GRAS.

Citicoline, or cdp-choline, has a number of different mechanisms of action, and it has yet to be determined which may be responsible for the changes in brain responses. The vitamin-like nutrient has been known to function as a precursor of phospholipid and acetylcholine synthesis; citicoline also enhances of the release of neurotransmitters such as norepinephrine and increased synthesis of phospholipids including cardiolipin and sphingomyelin. Citicoline has also been recognized for neuroprotective effects with stroke or other brain injuries, protection from cognitive decline. Though this research is still preliminary, researchers will continue to investigate whether these effects are related to citicoline properties, or from the effect citicoline has on the dopamine or other systems.

Stabilized cytidine 5'diphosphocholine is a naturally occurring, water soluble biological compound that is an essential intermediate for the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a major constituent of the grey matter of brain tissue (30%).  CDP choline is metabolized to yield the free nucleotide cytidine and choline.  Scientific research demonstrates that CDP Choline consumption promotes brain metabolism by enhancing the synthesis of acetylcholine, restoring phospholipid content in the brain and regulation of neuronal membrane excitability and osmolarity (by its effect on the ATP-dependent sodium and potassium pumps).

Would a teenager be safe taking this mind product? He's having problems learning / retaining information in class. This problem is making him depressed, moody and angry. Have other young people taken this?
   A. Thus far all the research we have seen with it has been in adults, so we have no data regarding its use by teenagers. Just about all the mind boosters have been tested in adults rather than in the young.
