Uridine Monophosphate Benefits and Uses

Uridine Monophosphate, also known as uridine or UMP, is a naturally occurring nucleoside in the body and a component of Ribonucleic acid (RNA) – a molecule responsible for the translation and expression of genes. It plays an important role in many biochemical processes in the brain and is perceived to act as a nootropic.

Memory storage requires vast amounts of RNA. Anecdotal evidence indicates taking Uridine supplements may have positive effects on memory and focus by increasing RNA levels.

Uridine Monophosphate also boosts brain health as it promotes the growth of brain cells and increases neural plasticity – the ability for the brain to build and strengthen behaviors, neural pathways, and synapses.

Supplementing with Uridine may also improve mood as it acts as a precursor for CDP-choline, a molecule known for increasing phospholipid production and modulating mood.

Uridine Monophosphate supplements are also known by a few different names, including:

  • Uridine
  • 1-beta-D-Ribofuranosyluracil
  • Uridylic acid
  • Uracil riboside
  • Uridine 5’-monophosphate
  • Uridine 5’-phosphate
  • Uridine 5’-phosphoric acid
  • 58-96-8
  • UMP

Scientific Consensus

Supplementing with this product is likely to be safe for adults at the recommended serving size. Anecdotal evidence has found Uridine Monophosphate is most effective when stacked with other supplements such as Choline or Magnesium L-Threonate.

Uridine Monophosphate may cause mild side effects such as nausea, headaches, and upset stomach. There is not enough data to say whether this product is safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women, or if it can be used by children.

Scientifically Tailored Ingredients

Uridine Monophosphate (UMP) is a naturally occurring compound made up of the nucleoside Uridine and phosphoric acid. Uridine has many essential roles in the body, as UMP is one of the four nucleotides that make up RNA. Anecdotal reports indicate that Uridine supplementation may have a notable nootropic effect. Uridine Monophosphate has a higher oral bioavailability than Uridine.

Uridine is converted into UTP and UDP in the body. These compounds bind several important P2 receptors. Many of those receptors activate Nerve Growth Factor signalling. This pathway is believed to be responsible for its neuroprotective properties.
