Cognizin is a trademarked name for the nutrient cdp-choline, also known as Citicoline. As of June 2008, we are not aware of studies done with Cognizin brand of cdp-choline published on Medline, however there appears to be a Cognizin study by Dr. Perry Renshaw which found Cognizin to benefit and improve cognitive skills in healthy, middle aged adults.

Neuro-Optimizer is nutrition for the brain, combining CDP-Choline (Cytidine 5'-diphoscholine, also known as Citicoline), Phosphatidylserine, Alpha Lipoic Acid, Acetyl L-Carnitine, L-Glutamine and Taurine to enhance brain metabolism and antioxidant protection.*
Citicoline (CDP-Choline) is a naturally occurring, water-soluble biological compound that is an essential intermediate for the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a major constituent of the gray matter of brain tissue (30%). Citicoline promotes brain metabolism by enhancing the synthesis of acetylcholine and restoring phospholipid content in the brain. PS (Phosphatidylserine) supports the brain's physiological processing of stress and promotes neuronal communication by its effect on cell membrane fluidity. The antioxidants Acetyl L-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Taurine provide protection for the neurons from damage caused by certain free radicals. Acetyl L-Carnitine, Alpha Lipoic Acid and L-Glutamine also support energy utilization by their effects on fatty acid metabolism, oxidative decarboxylation and gluconeogenesis. Taurine also aids in osmoregulation (maintenance of proper concentrations of ions) inside the cell.* Neuro-Optimizer is a natural way to enhance brain metabolism in cognition without the use of stimulants.

Citicoline has proved to be a valid treatment in patients with a cerebrovascular pathogenesis for memory disorders. A metanalysis performed on the entire database available from the clinical studies performed with this compound confirms the experimental evidence from the animal studies which have repeatedly described the multiple biological actions of citicoline in restoring both the cell lipid structures and some neurotransmitter functions.
