Choline in foods and function
Choline, found in foods as varied as liver, beef, eggs, and chocolate, plays an important role in the formation of cell membranes, which make up the outer sheath that keeps cells intact. In addition, it works as a building block for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and other chemical messengers in the brain.
Choline in our diet and in food, dietary intake
This nutrient, usually as part of phosphatidylcholine, or lecithin, is present in a number of foods, particularly eggs, fish, legumes, nuts, and meats, as well as in human breast milk. Dietary intake of choline in a healthy diet ranges from 300 to 900 mg a day. Most individuals who have a normal diet are not likely to be deficient in choline, however there are certain people that, even with a good diet, may still not get enough choline for optimum health and thus have a deficiency of this important nutrient. In the past it was thought that the human body made adequate amounts of choline when needed. However, studies have shown volunteers on a choline deficient diet are not able to produce enough of this nutrient.
USDA guidelines, daily consumption
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends that men consume daily about 550 milligrams of choline a day and women about 400 milligrams. This minimum choline intake each day should prevent liver dysfunction. However, some individuals may need up to 800 milligrams of choline each day to prevent or reverse the damage caused by a deficiency of this nutrient.
Q. Can a choline supplement be taken the same day as CDP-choline for better mental performance?
A. Yes, if the dosage is kept to half a capsule of each supplement.
Q. Is it okay to take Mind Power Rx combined with choline bitartrate supplement or acetyl-l-carnitine?
A. We prefer taking these supplements on separate days since each of them is potent. You may combine two in smaller amounts, such as half a capsule of each.
Combining with sexual enhancing formulas
Q. I see there is choline present in Passion Rx, the natural sex enhancing formula. Is it okay to take additional choline when taking a Passion Rx capsule?
A. Passion Rx is potent by itself; therefore, we suggest not taking a choline pill the same day.
With or without food
Q. Would you suggest taking choline with or without food?
A. If you would like to notice the mental alertness more acutely, you can take it on an empty stomach. If you are taking choline for general health improvement and you are not as interested in its mental effects, then take it with food.
Q. Is choline related to TMG and DMG?
A. Yes. They have similar chemical structures. TMG, trimethylglycine, has three methyl groups and DMG, dimethylglycine, has two methyl groups.
Q. I will like to know if your product choline is okay to take while I am pregnant.
A. This is a decision you and your doctor need to make since we can't advise anyone regarding what to take or how much. Some women are deficient in this nutrient during pregnancy.
