|Cognizin CDP Choline 250 mg 60 Capsules|
Choline is a substance needed by the brain to produce acetylcholine, a major brain/motor neuron neurotransmitter that facilitates the transmission of impulses between neurons.
The importance of choline for maintaining health in adults has been recognized for some time, but recent research points to its critical role in brain development.
CDP-choline stands for cytidine-5-diphosphocholine. This unique form of choline readily passes through the blood-brain barrier (BBB) directly into the brain tissue. Once past the blood-brain barrier, CDP-choline activates the synthesis of critical components in cell membranes, enhances cerebral energy metabolism and increases levels of various neurotransmitters.
