Has someone you loved suffered a stoke? My dad has..

Hope, Belief & the Courage to Continue: Advancing Recovery from a Stroke or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with Citicoline within the First Six Weeks

A stroke occurs every 40 seconds in America .

Twice as often, every 21 seconds, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) occurs.

If you or someone you know has suffered a stroke or traumatic brain injury (TBI), you know that every precious second counts after the injury. Studies have shown that treatment administered within a few hours after stroke has proven to be the most effective for recovery. However, the first six weeks after the stroke or injury are when the brain’s partially damaged cells need assistance to begin the recovery process and start working again.

Published medical research has demonstrated that citicoline, a fundamental nutrient that the body produces naturally, is especially important to the health and repair of brain cells or neurons. Citicoline supports the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, and is essential for the healthy functioning of our cells. Citicoline is found in every cell in the body, especially the brain. After a stroke or a TBI, the brain’s demand for citicoline may increase as it tries to save damaged cells.

CerAxon Oral Solution is a medical food taken for the dietary management of brain ischemia (stroke or brain injury) in patients ages 18-85 with partially impaired swallowing (except for pregnant and lactating women), and is taken up to 1gm twice a day for up to six weeks. CerAxon Oral Solution is unique; there is no other neuroprotectant that supports cell membrane stabilization and is formulated for patients with partially impaired swallowing. Citicoline taken by mouth is safe and acts the same as the citicoline that is produced by the body.

Clinical research on citicoline with thousands of stroke and TBI patients demonstrates significant improvements in activities of daily living. A published analysis in 2002 summarizing numerous studies and 1,372 stroke patients who took up to 2gm per day for 6 weeks found the following:

  • Significant 29% increase of probability of recovering activities of daily living
  • Significant 42% increase of probability of recovering functional capacity
CerAxon Oral Solution:

  • Helps stabilize the brain cells after a stroke and brain injury
  • Helps rebuild cell walls damaged by stroke and brain injury
  • Helps rewire the non-injured regions of the brain and support rehabilitation
  • Helps improve stroke and brain injury recovery and return the body to normal daily activities: 1
    • Movement (eating, bathing, walking)
    • Awareness (temporal and spatial orientation)
    • Attention (learning, memory, ability to focus)
No serious adverse reactions for individuals taking CerAxon Oral Solution have been reported. Ideally, CerAxon Oral Solution should be taken for the first six weeks after injury, but no matter where you are in your recovery journey, CerAxon wants to give you the “Hope, Belief & the Courage to Continue.”

CerAxon Oral Solution is a medical food and is to be used under the supervision of a physician but it is available without a prescription and can be ordered at or at your local pharmacy by request.
