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 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 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 Choline itself.
Taking both Uridine Monophosphate and Choline 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.

Good experience on the whole

The Uridine supplement came quickly, was well-packaged, and appears on the whole to be exactly what was agreed. That said, haven't noticed any effect on me - but that's often how things go with nootropics :D

First order of uridine monophosphate to Bulgaria

Overall, very client friendly website, which allows you to order with ease. Customer support was on point with fast responses. The only missing thing at the moment is the product itself, mainly probably due to logistic issues.

It’s hard to beat FS for quality!

Focus Supplements is my go to source for supplements such as uridine monophosphate, CDP choline etc. Recently ordered uridine monophosphate and decided to try rhodiola rosea (as I have been using ashwagandha for a while with great results). Rhodiola Rosea and ashwagandha are the perfect complementary supplements, and when used together, have synergistic properties (taking them together is not 1+1=2 but rather 1+1=3). Extremely happy I decided to buy Rhodiola from FS and, as always, their uridine is second to none.

Good customer service

I bought uridine monophosphate and had to engage customer service to track down the courier. They were very helpful and professional in getting the issue sorted out quickly and without problems. This makes me comfortable to recommend the company and buy from them again.
