Branded Citicoline Improves Attention

New York, NY—Researchers based at the University of Utah Brain Institute have collected data they believe supports the use of a branded citicoline (Cognizin from Kyowa Hakko, based here) for improving attention.

For 28 days, either 250 or 500 mg of the supplement was given to 40 healthy women; a group of 20 individuals received a placebo. After everyone was tested for attention and focus, the researchers found citicoline yielded better results for attention. Both the high and low dose groups performed similarly during tests.

The results were presented in a poster session at the 66th Annual Meeting of the Society of Biological Psychiatry in San Francisco.
