WHAT IS CHOLINE BITARTRATE
Choline Bitartrate is an essential nutrient needed by the nervous system to produce acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that facilitates the transmission of impulses between neurons. Choline is extremely important in maintaining healthy cell membranes because it produces phosphatidyl choline. It helps in the production of lipotropic agents which inhibit the conversion of carbohydrates to fat and assists in the production of HDL (good) cholesterol. Choline is very helpful in hormone production and in enhancing sexual function, as well as bladder, kidney, pancreatic, testicular, and liver function.
WHY DO WE NEED CHOLINE BITARTRATE
There are two reasons for the body`s need for choline - classified as an essential nutrient in 1998 by the National Academy of Sciences.
One - choline is required for the synthesis of one of our body`s primary neurotransmitters, acetylcholine.
Two - it is used for the building and maintenance of the body`s membranes.
