Choline, especially in lecithin form, is a basic dietary component found in the phospholipids of protein-containing foods such as eggs, meats, soybeans, or peanuts.
Like tyrosine, dietary choline is an effective neurotransmitter precursor - it has been suggested that choline is the precursor for the production of acetylcholine.* It is believed that acetylcholine is released in the brain and plays a part in many brain functions.*
In trained endurance athletes, choline concentrations in the blood can be reduced by up to 40% during training or competition. This reduction in blood choline could lead to a reduction in acetylcholine synthesis and therefore affect focus, memory, and performance. Choline supplementation can help to replenish these reduced blood choline concentrations, allowing you to keep your head in the game from start to finish!*
Take care of things upstairs with choline!
