Choline Bitartrate is an essential nutrientneeded by the nervous system to produce acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is aneurotransmitter that facilitates the transmission of impulses between neurons.Choline is extremely important in maintaining healthy cell membranes because itproduces phosphatidyl choline. It helps in the production of lipotropic agentswhich inhibit the conversion of carbohydrates to fat and assists in theproduction of HDL (good) cholesterol. Choline is very helpful in hormoneproduction and in enhancing sexual function, as well as bladder, kidney,pancreatic, testicular, and liver function.
