What is choline?
Choline is an essential nutrient that is naturally present in some foods, especially liver, meat and eggs. It is also present in fish, beans, nuts and dairy products.
We can produce our own choline in the liver but the amount that the body naturally produces is not enough to meet our needs1.
Why does it matter to me?
There is a great deal of research investigating other possible health benefits of choline. Although this research is currently based on animal studies it holds great promise for the future.
For example, recent studies suggest that choline may play a role in reducing the risk of certain forms of cancer6 and improving the memory of elderly patients suffering from dementia7.
What if I don’t get enough?
How much do I need?
The RDA (average daily intake to protect health for 98% of the population) for choline is an AI (adequate intake) this is due to a lack of comprehensive data to arrive at an RDA. An AI is assumed to be at the level of an RDA or above it.
