Uridine is a nucleotide base found in high levels in beer which is used for increasing synthesis of cellular membranes and for other neurological properties. It appears to have potentially cognitive enhancing properties, and is synergistic with fish oil.
Uridine is most often used for
- Uridine monophosphate
- Uridine diphosphate
Supplementation of uridine seems to be in the 500-1,000mg range, with the lone human study using the higher end of this range. It is recommended to take uridine with food out of prudency, but this has not been noted to be an absolute requirement.
