Citicoline has many important functions within the brain. One role includes serving as an intermediate in the production of neuronal phospholipids and acetylcholine.
Research in a double-blind placebo-controlled clinical study showed promise of Citicoline in reducing lesions associated with stroke victims (Warach, et al, 2000).
Another independent clinical study followed a cohort of elderly patients with age-related cognitive impairment who were given Citicoline supplements. The group who received Citicoline had a significantly measurable increase in metabolites (phosphocreatine and phospholipid membrane content) within the frontal lobe, the area of the brain important for performing working memory tasks. The researchers concluded that not only did Citicoline mitigate cognitive declines associated with aging, but it also helped patients improve energy utilization (Silveri, 2008).
