Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Citicoline supplementation helps prevent memory impairment resulting from poor environmental conditions.Also helps to improve focus and mental energy and may possibly be useful in the treatment of attention deficit disorder.

The Brahmi also serves a similar purpose.

Both are good for brain health.
