Triacetyluridine – Powder, 10g
Triacetyluridine (also known as TAU) is a uridine supplement that is occasionally used as a nootropic supplement. Uridine is a precursor of ribonucleic acid (RNA) and supports healthy functioning of the central nervous system.
Triacetyluridine is converted to uridine in vivo. When administered as Triacetyluridine, uridine can be used by essentially all cells to make uridine nucleotides. Research has found that Triacetyluridine activates the P2Y2 brain receptors, which trigger activity from Nerve Growth Factor (NGF). Triacetyluridine enhances functioning in synaptic connections, which causes neurons to communicate faster and more efficiently. This supports the idea that Triacetyluridine supplements may support brain health and cognitive function.
What is Triacetyluridine?
Triacetyluridine is a synthetic prodrug of naturally occurring nucleoside uridine. It is provided in the prodrug form uridine triacetate as this form delivers 4- to 6-fold more uridine into systemic circulation compared to uridine alone. The resulting increased uridine levels inhibit cell damage and cell death caused by fluorouracil.
Triacetyluridine and uridine tend to work well with lipids and phosphate groups; however, triacetyluridine has superior lipid solubility compared to uridine and is resistant to degradation by uridine phosphorylase. It can only be taken orally and not sublingually.
Triacetyluridine Benefits and Uses
Studies have shown that Triacetyluridine may have the following benefits:
- Raises the brain’s levels of nerve growth factor
- Promotes feelings of well-being
- Decreases symptoms of depression
- Improves mitochondrial functioning
Additional Information on Triacetyluridine
Triacetyluridine (also called PN401, uridine triacetate, and Vistogard) may help protect healthy cells from some of the side effects caused by certain anticancer drugs.
Triacetyluridine tends to behave synergistically with choline and fish oil to enhance mood. A Harvard Medical School study combined DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and Omega-3 fatty acids with Triacetyluridine and found that the combination created a healthy emotional outlook in subjects.
Triacetyluridine is still being researched for its ability to promote feelings of well-being. A 6-week clinical study on human subjects concluded that TAU “improved overall mood of subjects”.
