Grandma's Choline Guide &
Health Benefits

Choline is needed for the proper transmission of nerve impulses from the brain through the central nervous system, as well as for the gallbladder regulation, liver function, and lecithin formation.

Classified as an essential nutrient it's usually grouped with Vitamin B-complex. It aids in hormone production and minimizes excess fat in the liver because it aids in fat and cholesterol metabolism. Without choline, brain function and memory are impaired.

Choline is beneficial for disorders of the nervous system such as Parkinson's disease. A deficiency may result in fatty liver buildup, as well as in cardiac symptoms, gastric ulcers, high blood pressure, the inability to dist fats, kidney and liver impairment, and stunted growth.
