What is Citicoline
Citicoline is a naturally occurring chemical in the body. It was originally synthesized in Japan for use on patients who had suffered an ischemic stroke. Those patients administered the drug within 24 hours of having the stroke were more likely to manage a full recovery as opposed to those that did not. Also, patients suffering from glaucoma noticed an improvement in vision as the drug nourished the nerves damaged by the pressure from the buildup of fluid in the eye. Further research suggests Citicoline may have nootropic properties and may aid those with circulation and other degenerative problems in the brain.

How Citicoline Works
Studies suggest that Citicoline supplementation increase the amount of phosphometabolite levels, which in turn, provide improved cognition. It is thought to currently assist in protecting brain health and function. It may also stimulate the production of antioxidants in the brain, which protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Although originally intended for those that had already suffered damage to the brain via stroke or other disease, many cognitive benefits could be had from using Citicoline on a supplementation cycle (90 days on, 90 days off) until its long-term use effects can be better documented.

Health Benefits of Citicoline
To date, research on the potential health benefits of Citicoline is somewhat limited. However, there's some evidence that Citicoline may help with certain health conditions. Here's a look at some key study findings:
As a Nootropic
Studies suggest that taking Citicoline based supplements may have an effect in boosting brainpower by increasing a chemical in the brain known as phosphatidylcholine. This chemical is known to improve brain function and memory capacity. Regular supplementation may be effective in improving the cognitive abilities in healthy persons, helping to restore memory in older persons, assisting in the recovery of stroke patients, treating persons with attention deficit disorder and improving vision and nourishing the optic nerve in those with glaucoma.
Citicoline and Dopamine
Citicoline encourages dopamine release through tyrosine hydroxylase activity. Citicoline is a dopamine agonist and contributes to overall levels of dopamine by inhibiting dopamine reuptake. It has been studied in a combination therapy with L-DOPA medication in Parkinson’s patients. The combination of Citicoline and L-DOPA increases the positive results in Parkinson’s patients.
Citicoline and Hormones
Citicoline has effects on hormone levels. It has been shown to raise Adrenocorticotropic hormonewithout raising the amount of stress hormones. These effects allow for a raise is HPA axis hormones without the excess stimulation of stress hormones. HPA axis hormones include anabolic and signalizing hormones like Growth Hormone or Thyroid Stimulating Hormone. These hormones have an obvious health benefit to both males and females.

Citicoline Side Effects
Research has shown little to no reported side effects in regular short-term use of Citicoline in doses ranging from 500mg - 2000mg per day, depending on its intended use. Those side effects that were reported included headache, diarrhea, nausea, insomnia and other minor effects; no serious side effects were known to occur. Although no drug interactions are known, always discuss supplementation with your doctor if you are on medication or have a medical condition. At this time, it is unknown whether Citicoline is safe for women pregnant or nursing and should be avoided until more conclusive information becomes available.
