CDP-choline, also known as cytidine diphosphate choline, is naturally occurring alkaloid and a prodrug for choline. It is a metabolic intermediate in the biological production of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, as well as phosphatidylcholine (which is a phospholipid used by the body in the creation of cellular membranes). It is produced naturally in the human body from choline itself. CDP-choline is a bioavailable prodrug and can elevate endogenous levels of choline. Each mole of CDP-choline metabolizes into equimolar ratios of choline, pyrophosphate, and cytidine.
