What is choline good for?
*Choline is a water-soluble, B-vitamin-like substance that contributes to normal fat metabolism, normal homocysteine metabolism and to the maintenance of normal liver function in the body. It also contributes to the breakdown and uptake of vitamins A, D, E and K. The body can produce a certain amount of choline itself, but some needs to be added via diet or supplements.
Choline is found mainly in animal foods such as meat, fish, eggs and offal. Plant-based foods contain lower amounts of choline.
Choline and inositol interact in the body
In the body, choline interacts with inositol to form lecithin, making this a beneficial combination in a dietary supplement. Lecithin is a vitamin-like substance that enables fat to be transported to the place in the body where it is useful at the given time. In addition to transporting fat in the body, lecithin also helps to transport fat out of the body, which helps keep fat storage in the liver at a normal level. Studies have shown that too low levels of choline in the body can adversely affect the liver (1). Healthwell Choline+Inositol contains choline and inositol in the forms L-choline bitartrate and myo-inositol, which are forms with high bioavailability that the body can easily assimilate.
The recommended dosage is 1-2 capsules per day.
