Natural Compound Proven to Improve Memory, Spark Energy and Protect Against Mental 'Burn Out' that Accompanies Aging
NEW ORLEANS, June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent study out of McLean Hospital, an affiliate of
The study, entitled "Citicoline Enhances Frontal Lobe Bioenergetics as Measured by Phosphorus Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy," was published in the Journal of NMR in BioMedicine (Vol 21, Issue 10, Dec 2008, 1066-1075). The citicoline used in the study is manufactured by Kyowa Hakko, an international health ingredients manufacturer, using a proprietary formula under the brand name Cognizin(R).
Several prior studies of Cognizin(R) Citicoline, as well as this one conducted at McLean Hospital, a
In the study, 16 subjects were randomly chosen to receive 500 mg and 2000 mg daily of Cognizin(R) Citicoline for six weeks. The benefits observed were quantified by sophisticated brain imaging techniques, which showed healthy middle-aged adults had increased energy and electrical activity in the frontal lobe of the brain - the portion of the brain that controls higher thought, decision making and focus. The new study is more specific than earlier studies about citicoline's beneficial effect on the brain. It also appears to forge a stronger link than ever between nutrition and cognitive function, a relationship that has often been discounted in the past.
"This most recent study confirms previous research and bolsters our conviction that citicoline, taken at a minimum dosage of 500 mg each day, is a simple and natural nutrient for your brain that may help you feel better, think more clearly, sleep better, increase your memory and improve your overall quality of life," said Perry Renshaw, M.D., Ph.D. Director of Magnetic Resonance Imaging, The Brain Institute of the

Citicoline is a generic name for supplemental CDP-choline, a natural substance found in all living cells. In human health, CDP-choline plays important roles in the formation of cell membranes and in supporting healthy brain function. Citicoline is sometimes called a "brain nutrient" because of its roles in supporting cognition and memory. To learn more, please go to: http://www.cognizin.com/.
