Doctors in this study gave 60 healthy women, aged 40 to 60, 250 mg or 500 mg of citicoline per day, or a placebo. Citicoline occurs in all living cell and helps maintain healthy nerve-cell membranes and increases nerve-signaling chemicals. After 28 days, compared to placebo, women who took either dose of citicoline had better attention and more correct responses in mental performance tests. Summarizing their findings, researchers said citicoline may slow the normal cognitive decline that comes with aging, and improve attention deficits common in psychiatric disorders.
