Differences Between Citicoline UK, Alpha GPC UK, DMAE Bitartrate and Choline Bitartrate
Choline as a dietary supplement is available in different compounds: the main ones are Alpha GPC, CDP Choline and Choline Bitartrate. The main difference is that some of them are better absorbed and processed by the body. Citicoline powder (consists of choline and cytidine) and Alpha GPC powder (made of choline and Glyerophospah) can smoothly cross the blood-brain barrier.
Compared to Alpha GPC supplement and CDP Choline, Choline Bitartrate is a bit less potent but cheaper at the same time. Although it cannot increase the choline concentration in the brain, Choline Bitartrate can aid in liver problems and provide other health benefits. Of course, the correct intake of choline supplements is essential for all variants. More about this in our blog: Choline Dosage.
DMAE Bitartrate is structurally similar to Choline but contains one fewer methyl group, giving it different properties than typical Choline supplements such as Alpha-GPC or Citicoline CDP-Choline. DMAE powder provides beneficial effects to human memory and prevents ageing symptoms.
What Causes Choline Deficiency?
The causes of too little choline are diverse and continue to be researched. These include, in particular, an improper diet, advancing age, but also excessive alcohol consumption or alcohol and drug addiction and various other illnesses. Fatty liver or other liver diseases, poor absorption (uptake) of folic acid can also require the additional intake of choline.
Bear in mind that nootropics can also have side effects. You can find all information on this in our blog on the most Important choline side effects.
