According to a recent study
in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, nearly 90% of adults don't get enough choline in their diets. If you aren't regularly eating liver, eggs or a lot of certain types of vegetables, you may be falling short on choline intake as well.
We've worked with Registered Dietitians to help model some common dietary menus so you can see how difficult it can be to get enough choline in your diet. Getting sufficient choline is particularly important to women of child-bearing age - in fact, in June 2017 the American Medical Association recommended that choline be included in all prenatal multivitamins - click here

As the highest amounts of choline tend to be found in meat, dairy and eggs, vegetarians also need to be mindful of how much choline they get in their diet. Those who find it difficult to get enough choline may want to consider a choline supplement or a multivitamin with choline to help close the gap.
