During intense workouts, the nervous system is strained and its recovery is greatly hampered. Fatigue leads to a decrease in attention and certain supplements can remedy this.

What is citicoline?
Nutrimuscle citicoline is a particular form of choline. The latter is an essential nutrient, present in the brain, which supports cognitive functions (memory, decision-making, perception or attention). We explain in detail how citicoline can increase your focus and attention.
With the help of brain messengers, called neurotransmitters, thoughts, focus and attention are able to flow. These same neurotransmitters send tiny messages of a chemical nature across the billions of our synapses. These synapses, supplied with energy by brain cells, allow information to pass from one neuron to another.
This process of neurotransmission is made possible thanks to an essential nutrient: citicoline!
What are the benefits of Nutrimuscle citicoline for athletes?
Citicoline has many benefits that are sought after during high intensity or long duration training. The latter:
- Supports focus and attention
- Promotes energy and brain health
- Increases the activity of neurotransmitters
- Maintains integrity of brain membranes
Citicoline supplementation is therefore relevant for athletes or for anyone wishing to stimulate their ability to concentrate, especially since studies carried out in France and the United States highlight enormous choline deficits in general populations (around 90 %) (1, 2).
During citicoline supplementation, when it is absorbed by the body, it is hydrolyzed into two molecules:
These molecules travel through the blood to the brain, where they unite into citicoline. From this moment, citicoline supports the cerebral functions which take part in the good circulation of the blood in the organization and the maintenance of the cellular structures.
What did the testers say about Nutrimuscle citicoline?
34 people have tested Nutrimuscle citicoline, here are some figures that show what they thought of it:
73% of testers felt effects after taking Nutrimuscle citicoline.
To the question: "did you feel a better neuromuscular connection, yes or no?" 78% answered yes.
We also asked the testers to specify the effects felt during the day, here are their answers:
"Quick mind. Improved focus when performing complex tasks."
" Better concentration in combination with Omega 3 and multivitamin, all taken in the morning or at noon. "
"Faster recovery, less fatigue."
"Better concentration, easier to go after an action without stopping."
What they thought of citicoline in a nutshell:
"Interesting booster effect before training. But a supplement that can also be used for occasions where you need increased concentration and better intellectual performance. In the end very versatile and not only for athletes"
"During bodybuilding exercises, it allows me to be more applied to the movement, and better feel the quality of execution, especially at the end of the series."
"The taste is pleasant, the mixability is very good and the absorption is easy. In terms of effects, I felt better concentration during my work, less ophthalmic fatigue. I think that this supplement has very strong health benefits, in particular cerebral."
