Choline is actually a fairly basic lecithin found in many different food products, especially organs, beans, wheat germ, eggs, peanuts, and other dairy. Meats are the best sources of it because the highest concentrations of Choline are typically found in the fat portions of the cell membranes, meaning foods with higher fat content are more likely to have higher amounts of Choline. Choline is thought to be useful in muscle contraction, and general good coordination skills.
Choline is useful in a variety of other ways too, such as cell communications, stabilizing the correct functions of muscles, regulation of impulse transmission through the nervous system, and in the production of Acetylcholine, which is known to influence state of mind, eating habits, and general behavior. Finally, Choline can also act as an antioxidant to some extent, protecting healthy cells from harmful free radicals.
Health Benefits Provided By Choline Bitartrate
Choline is a nutrient necessary for the body in order to keep up the emulsification of fats and cholesterol, and to facilitate the movement of hormones to the correct areas of the body. It is necessary for proper functioning of the nervous system, the liver, and the gallbladder.
Even though it is not actually a B vitamin, it is sometimes considered to be a part of this complex because it operates in conjunction with various types of B vitamins to maintain adequate levels of health in the body.
Choline Bitartrate is indirectly involved in the conversion of fat into energy and nutrients, speeds up their mobilization throughout the body, and also aids in the production of HDL, a helpful type of cholesterol. Choline also assists in the formation of Betaine, which is a methyl donor of no small importance.
Choline is especially important in establishing endurance when it comes to physical exercise. Choline becomes depleted very quickly in athletes that participate in taxing exercise regimens. This, in turn, means that less Acetylcholine can be synthesized, which could result in permanent damage to the liver or to muscles. This makes Choline supplementation both viable and recommended for athletes.
