Choline Highlighted as an Essential Nutrient with Key Health Benefits
The Choline Information Council is pleased to highlight the key health benefits of choline and showcase choline as an upcoming ingredient to watch in 2015. Choline is essential for brain development, adult cognition and memory, prevention of Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, eye health, liver health, women's health, and sports performance. Regulatory agencies recognize the critical role for choline and have enabled it to be included in nutrition labeling. Dietary surveys show that almost no adults get enough choline from food; supplementation with choline should be helpful for optimal development and overall health. Fortification of foods with an easy-to-work with form of choline, such as VitaCholine, can be a good way to help individuals get enough choline.
