Uridine is a nucleoside, contains an uracil attached to a ribose ring (known as a ribofuranose) via a β-N1-glycosidic bond. It is an organic compound of the pyrimidine family, that occurs as one of the four bases coding genetic information in the polynucleotide chain of RNA.
Uridine can increase the rate-limiting step of Phosphatidylcholine synthesis in the brain, Phosphatidylcholine is the major structural and functional component of brain cell membranes. Without phosphatidylcholine, brain cells lose their youthful function and suffer the degenerative structural changes associated with aging. Uridine is thought to aid Alzheimer's Disease due to helping with synaptic connections, which appear to be reduced in the state of Alzheimer's.
