Choline – citocilin is super important for our brain functions.
It’s NOT lecithin or choline bitartrate or eggs … find out which is the best choline supplement below …View this email in your browser
One of the most frequently asked questions is, “which choline supplement is best”?
And for good reason. Because one of the best ways to increase learning and memory is by boosting choline levels in your brain.
Choline is also needed for healthy liver function, normal brain function and development, nerve function, muscle movement, cellular energy, and metabolism.
Choline assists in methylation involved in gene expression and the repair of DNA, nerve signaling, and detox.
Your brain has a huge appetite for choline. It’s critical for the synthesis of acetylcholine. Which your brain uses for signaling and communication between billions of neurons.
In fact, choline is so vital to cognitive performance and nerve function that without it, you wouldn’t be able to move, think, sleep, or remember anything.
If you don’t get enough choline you’ll be dealing with poor recall, memory loss, fatigue, brain fog, the inability to learn, you’ll feel irritable or distracted, and difficulty walking or staying balanced.
Choline is found in a variety of foods. Eggs and meats are rich sources of choline in the Americas.
But according to studies published by the Institute of Medicine, well over half of U.S. adults and children are choline deficient.[i]
Choline deficiency shows up a chronic fatigue, can’t think through a problem, difficulty retaining new information, mood swings, poor memory, muscle aches and nerve pain or tingling.
And if left unchecked can turn into much more serious problems including fatty liver disease.
So, it’s no wonder that many in our community are asking about the best source of choline.
And no, it’s NOT lecithin.
I get this a lot. And I think it’s because phosphatidylcholine (PC) is often used interchangeably with lecithin. But they are different.
Choline is a component of phosphatidylcholine. Which is a component of and can be derived from lecithin.
But using a lecithin supplement as your choline source will not provide you with the choline you need for optimal brain function and performance.
The two best forms of choline for nootropic use are Alpha GPC and CDP-Choline (Citicoline).
I personally use both. I get CDP-Choline from using Mind Lab Pro® every day. And use a separate Alpha GPC supplement 3-times per day.
