Choline is a dietary component and found in foods as free choline and as esterified forms such as phosphocholine, It functions as a precursor for acetylcholine, phospholipids, and the methyl donor betaine and is important for the structural integrity of cell membranes, methyl metabolism, cholinergic neurotransmission, transmembrane signaling, and lipid and cholesterol transport and metabolism.

Dietary choline is absorbed from the lumen of the small intestine. Additionally to dietary supply choline can be made available by enzymatic cleavage in the pancreas from other nutritional sources (e.g. phosphatidylcholine). The critical adverse effect from high intake of choline is hypotension, with corroborative evidence on cholinergic side effects . After inadequate dietary intake decreased choline stores and liver damage (as assessed by elevated alanine aminotransferase) may develop.



Appearance: White hygroscopic crystalline powder with Slight odor of Amines
