What Is Uridine Monophosphate?

Uridine has many roles in the brain. The most common supplemental form of Uridine is the Monophosphate form for its bioavailability compared to pure Uridine.
We need Uridine to survive — without it, our cells wouldn’t be able to function. Most of the uridine we need comes from our diet — however, it’s poorly absorbed across the digestive tract and blood-brain barrier.
For this reason, Uridine Monophosphate is better for delivering Uridine to the brain where it’s used to support cognitive processes such as memory and learning.
Supplementing Uridine Monophosphate optimises cognitive function by supporting the manufacturer of neurotransmitters including acetylcholine and new nerve cells.
This supplement is primarily used to boost the learning process, support memory, and improve focus and concentration.

The Science Behind Uridine Monophosphate

This form of Uridine is classified as an esterified phosphoric acid — which essentially means its a combination of phosphate and Uridine — 1 of the 5 nucleotides that make up our RNA.
Both of these precursors are used to build new neurons and key neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine.
 
1. Building Blocks for RNA
Inside the cells, our DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) are the instructions for building more cells, enzymes, neurotransmitters, hormones, and various other proteins and fatty acid substances.
The DNA holds the instructions, but it’s too important to be part of the manufacturing facilities of the cell (the ribosomes). If DNA becomes damaged at any point, it can lead to serious consequences. Instead of risking the DNA itself, a copy is made — we call this copy RNA (ribonucleic acid).
The RNA moves over to the manufacturing facilities in the cell where the instructions can be used to build whatever we need.
Uridine is one of the primary components of RNA — everything our cells do require the help of Uridine to do it. This makes this compound incredibly important for our overall health.
 
2. Acetylcholine Production
Optimizing acetylcholine levels is one of the primary targets of nootropic compounds used for supporting learning and memory — such as piracetam or alpha-GPC.
Uridine Monophosphate also supports acetylcholine production. It regulates the production of a compound called citocholine which is an important precursor for acetylcholine.
When uridine levels are low, our ability to manufacture citocholine, and subsequently acetylcholine becomes limited. This may result in difficulties performing cognitive functions involved with memory and learning.
Uridine Monophosphate won’t boost this system past its normal level — however, it’s extremely useful for optimising the process by ensuring Uridine levels are sufficient for the brain to manufacture as much acetylcholine as it needs.
 
3. Neurogenesis
Neurogenesis is the process of building new neurons in the brain and spinal cord from neural stem cells.
The formation of new neurons is a key process in the formation of new memories and resisting gradual neurodegeneration that comes naturally with old age.
One of the primary building blocks of new neurons is a phospholipid compound known as phosphatidylcholine which relies on uridine to manufacture some of the precursors used to make it.
Uridine is also thought to activate the P2Y2 receptors in the brain — which control the process of neurogenesis in the brain.

Is Uridine Monophosphate The Supplement For Me?

Uridine Monophosphate is commonly taken alongside other nootropics as a way to optimise neurological function.
The important role Uridine plays in the manufacture of acetylcholine and neurons make it especially useful for students looking to optimise the brain’s performance whilst learning. It’s also highly popular with the elderly as it may slow age-related cognitive decline through its support of neurogenesis in the brain.

ENHANCING YOUR URIDINE MONOPHOSPHATE SUPPLEMENT

There are a few other supplements you can combine with your Uridine Monophosphate to achieve an even greater benefit...

1. For Cognitive Function

Maintaining optimal cognitive function means ensuring all the important precursor molecules and cofactors are available to the brain. If any of these compounds is too low, it can limit our cognitive abilities.
There are thousands of compounds the brain needs to do its job — most of which come from our diet in high enough supplies that we don’t need to worry about supplements.
However, targeting specific compounds that have impacts on cognitive function can help ensure they’re always available to the brain in the right amounts.
One of the best combinations people can take to do this is a B vitamin complex (primarily focusing on vitamin B6, and B12), Magnesium, and Uridine monophosphate.
B vitamins, Magnesium, and Uridine are all required in the production of neurotransmitters, and nerve cells in the brain.

2. For Learning & Memory

When using Uridine Monophosphate for its effects on memory, there are two compounds we can combine the supplement with to more reliable results.
Uridine supports the production of acetylcholine — which is an important part of memory formation. We can improve this even further by also providing a source of Choline, which serves as one of the primary building blocks for acetylcholine.
There are many different nootropics that serve as a source of Choline for the brain. One of the most popular options is Citicoline.
Taking both Uridine Monophosphate and Citicoline together further optimises the acetylcholine production in the brain.

3. For Stress Resistance

Trans-resveratrol is useful for increasing our ability to resist stress. It does this primarily through its antioxidant and hormetic effects.
A great way to push this benefit even further is to use an adaptogenic herb like Ashwagandha KSM-66.
This herbal extract provides very similar benefits but through the stress response system itself.
The idea is that the resveratrol triggers the stress response by causing a small amount of stress on the body, while the KSM-66 drives the bodies response to this small stressor.

The overall results are a greater feeling of well-being and a higher tolerance for physical and emotional stress on the body.

Wonderful

This is a fantastic supplement and I will definitely be buying it again - the best uridine supplement I've ever bought - I'll be trying more from Focus Supplements soon!

Uridine + Citicoline

Unfortunately, the combined version of Uridine +Citicoline capsules were not available. I bought uridine powder instead, the scoop is for 300 mg while it is recommended to take 2 x 150 mg, making correct dosing more difficult. It took more than one week to arrive in Germany, a bit long. I took the combined version for 6 months and I feel very good.

Pure Powder Is Much Preferred

The Focus Supplements uridine, which I usually got from ebay or amazon, is the best uridine I'ves tried. It shows high effectiveness and seems of high quality (no impurities, ineffective elements) in powder form. I've noticed generally that uridine is far more effective taken sublingually, under the tongue, which is only possible in powder form. I have taken this supplement consisting of capsules for price reasons (and I couldn't readily find powder on offer), thinking it wouldn't matter. I have taken a few capsules the normal way, and also noticing the well-known difference in effectiveness. I was trying to take them as pure powder then, but noticed it's not pure uridine at all, which is pure white, but brownish, with a slightly nutty taste. Obviously this is due to the "bulking agent", which his rice bran and rice concentrate. However due to this it is not possible to take the uridine sublingually. It doesn't dissolve that well and moves around in the mouth more easily, because it doesn't stick together as one pure powder, it also doesn't touch the skin under the tongue with all the surface as there is other stuff mixed in. For all that, taking it sublingually hardly works and makes no sense in this form. Without this, however, it is lower quality for me and in my opinion in general, as the difference in effect is very noticeable. Taking it sublingually, it more easily gets to the brain, whereas taking it in the gut, it goes through the whole body first, which strongly diminishes a nootropic effect (e.g. the noticeable GABA-ergic effect and focus, and consequentially any presumed brain-health effects).
