Product Description

Application Notes

Uridine can increase the rate-limiting step of Phosphatidylcholine synthesis in the brain, Phosphatidylcholine is the major structural and functional component of brain cell membranes. Without phosphatidylcholine, brain cells lose their youthful function and suffer the degenerative structural changes associated with aging. Uridine is thought to aid Alzheimer's Disease due to helping with synaptic connections, which appear to be reduced in the state of Alzheimer's.

Key Applications

Treatment of Alzheimer's Disease
