CDP-Choline is naturally synthesized by the body from Choline and is known to possess nootropic properties. CDP-Choline is approved in Europe and Japan for use in Parkinson’s disease, stroke and other neurological disorders. CDP-Choline is converted into the neurotransmitter Acetylcholine. Scientists say that Acetylcholine plays a fundamental role in the process of memory, by enhancing the activity of many cortical neurons in the brain and thus helping improve memory quality and recollection capacity. Preliminary research found CDP-Choline may be useful in the treatment of ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder). Regarding its safety, CDP-Choline is apparently safe when taken short-term (up to 90 days), Side effects reported include headache, diarrhea, nausea, insomnia and blurred vision.
The herbal ingredients in the formula’s composition are standardized extracts, particularly those extracts used in clinical trials and proven safe and effective. Most of these plants work to improve circulatory function, hence also benefiting brain performance or as anti-oxidants, directly fighting free radical damage and cognitive impairment resulted from here.
