Looking for ways to boost your brainpower? Make sure you’re consuming enough choline. Choline is a macronutrient that is important for many functions in the body, such as liver function, normal brain development, nerve function, muscle movement, supporting energy levels and maintaining a healthy metabolism.
Along with playing an important role in several processes within the body which are carried out multiple times a day, every day, choline also has some of the following health benefits:
- Forms DNA and cell structures
- Supports Central Nervous System
- Maintains Healthy Liver Function
- Helps protect memory and loss of brain function
- Can help with exercise performance and muscle function
- May help maintain heart health
This essential macronutrient is related to other vitamins such as folate and those in the vitamin B complex family. Similar to vitamin B, choline plays a role in supporting energy and brain function, and keeping the metabolism active. Choline also helps in the process of methylation, which is the process used to create DNA, for nerve signaling and for detoxifaction.
Choline is also essential for the functioning of a key neurotransmitter called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine helps nerves to communicate within our bodies which helps the muscles move and acts as an anti-aging neurotransmitter.
Some experts recommend taking higher levels of choline in order to get that brain boost in function and memory retention. You can up your intake of choline by eating foods with choline, and taking a supplement with choline. Choline is found in our bodies naturally in small amounts but the rest we need to get from food sources. You can get choline from foods such as eggs, liver, beef, salmon, cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts. You can also get choline from supplements.
Centrophenoxine is an excellent source of choline that can be taken to optimize memory, help with mood and ADHD and is an antioxidant. Centrophenoxine is classified as a cholinergic, which is a substance that delivers or boosts the action of choline. This capability makes it an excellent and effective nootropic on its own and an enhancer when used with other nootropics, especially racetams. That’s why we offer centrophenoxine in a bundle with piracetam. By taking the two together, this will ensure you achieve optimal results from both.
