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 health, memory function, and mental energy.

CDP Choline Description
Did you know Choline is an essential nutrient?
This means most of it comes from our diets… Sadly however, most people do not get enough of it – with 90% of the US population being deficient.
Aside from enabling a whole host of bodily processes, choline is a powerhouse nutrient for brain function – improving memory, attention, energy and also being a precursor for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine.
How to increase your levels of one of the best alround brain performance nutrients?
CDP Choline is an efficient source of choline that supplies your brain with more than enough of this important nutrient.
However, there is another important reason we need optimal levels of choline in our brains – especially if we are utilising notoropics to perform at the height of our potential.
And that is optimising levels of Acetylcholine – which regulates processes such as memory, learning and attention.
Unfortunately, we cannot optimise these levels without having enough of the precursor to fuel Acetylcholine’s production.
Which is precisely why an efficient source of choline is a necessity in a world where 90% of the population deficient.
By taking Pure Nootropics’ CDP Choline, you are ensuring your body has enough of this critical nutrient to support optimal brain function, day in day out.
