Citicholine (or citicoline) comes under the pharmaceutical flag of Cholinergics. These are a type of that drug that inhibit, enhance, or mimic the action of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, the primary transmitter of nerve impulses within the parasympathetic nervous system.

Acetylcholine plays a role in Alzheimer’s Disease. It activates muscles and helps with arousal, short-term memory, and learning. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s patients have low levels of Acetylcholine.

Citicholine is available through foods, especially organ meats like liver and kidney. However, you’d need to eat a massive amount to get the level required to make a difference. The best thing is that Citicholine is safe and well-tolerated.
