The newly published study below points out that 90% of Americans get less than the recommended daily intake of choline. And mice fed a diet deficient in choline are susceptible to various pathological findings in the heart, brain, liver, and impaired insulin/glucose processing.
I have 3 eggs a day. Should be good.
I read this before and it might be true. Many nootropics hackers insist that you have to supplement with choline, especially if you are taking one of the racetams like piracetam.
They claim you get headaches if you don’t take a choline supplement with them.
When I was experimenting with racetams even in large doses I never experienced this effect.
I have never experienced any subjective benefits of taking a choline supplement of any kind. I still occasionally take various choline supplements of various kinds just because I have accumulated a cupboard load of them when I was taking racetams.
They look to be beneficial, but it is going to be hard to measure the benefits.
This is another example of Bruce Ame’s Triage theory: that the body triages its functions according to the raw materials available to it. If you are low on a building block like choline, you will have suboptimal health because production of lower-priority needs are reduced or eliminated. But they are still needs for optimal health.
Chris Masterjohn has said some interesting things about choline. Apparently choline protects the liver. If you are an alcoholic, or a sugar junkie, be sure to get some choline. A great source is eating liver. We actual are what we eat in this example.
I supplement with some choline and TMG for liver protection.
What form of choline supplementation do you guys do? Phosphatidylcholine? Alpha GPC? I know choline bitartrate can raise TMAO
Can you provide a source for that? This is concerning because choline bitartrate is my prefered source of choline due to its high choline content.
