Description</a></p>
<div class=”ntc_box_1″>
<p>Citicoline, also known as CDP Choline, is a form of Choline that
has been enhanced to allow improved transmission across the blood-brain
barrier. Citicoline facilitates neurotransmitter production, restoration and
repair, allowing for increased motivation and mental clarity.</p>
<p>When paired with cognition-enhancing nootropics such as <a
href=”../adrafinil/”>Adrafinil</a>, <a
href=”../phenylpiracetam/”>Phenylpiracetam</a> and <a
href=”../noopept/”>Noopept</a>, Citicoline amplifies the brain
boosting effects, whilst reducing the risks of headaches. With an excellent
safety profile, and evidence of neuroprotective benefits, it is the perfect
complement to your nootropics of choice.</p>

<div class=”ntc_box_2″>
<p><b>Capsules per day:</b> 1 – 2</p>
<p><b>Effects onset</b>: 30 – 60 minutes</p>
<p><b>Effect duration: </b>Main effect lasts 6-8 hours,
with some residual effects up to 12 hours.</p>
<p><b>Extended use:</b> As side effects may be compounded
with extended use, taking a week off can restore potency and allow for neural
regulation.</p>
<p><b>Usage notes</b>:</p>
<ul>
<li>Usage in the morning is optimal for avoiding sleep disruption due
to increased wakefulness.</li>
<li>An excess of choline may amplify existing anxieties or deepen
depressive episodes. Citicoline is therefore not advised for individuals
with a history of these conditions.</li>
</ul>
<p><b>Alcohol note:</b> It is safe to consume alcohol
while taking Citicoline. High alcohol consumption can lead to choline
deficiency. Choline can reduce liver damage caused by excessive alcohol
consumption.</p>

Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or
