What is choline?
Choline is not strictly a vitamin but a vital nutrient for all humans and is often grouped with the B vitamins.
Why does it matter to me?
Choline enables the cells in your body to communicate with each other so they can work together in a co-ordinated way to benefit you as a whole (cell signalling).
Did you know?
There is some evidence for; but more research is needed to check if choline reduces: the chance of heart disease, reduces our sensitivity to carcinogenic chemicals, reduced memory loss if taken early in life and a reduction in birth defects.
What if I don’t get enough?
Choline deficiency leads to liver and muscle damage, these ailments are rectified by increasing the intake of choline.
Studies show that up to 90% of Americans don’t get enough choline, which can lead to fatigue, insomnia, poor kidney function, memory problems and nerve-muscle imbalances.
How much do I need?
The RDA (average daily intake to protect health for 98% of the population) for choline is an AI (adequate intake) this is due to a lack of comprehensive data to arrive at an RDA. An AI is assumed to be at the level of an RDA or above it.
