Choline & Sports Performance

Americans are more active and fitness-oriented than ever before.

Choline is important to overall health and optimized physical performance; it benefits athletes in several ways. Choline supports muscle performance during exercise, and it can improve stamina. Choline supports communication with muscle fibers and promotes muscle recovery following repetitive motion, so overall training output is improved.

For athletes and other physically active individuals, choline promotes and regulates proper metabolism for increased energy and endurance. Choline aids in maintaining the nervous system, which also delays the onset of fatigue during strenuous activity.

To optimize physical performance, consume the Adequate Intake (AI) level of choline —550 mg a day for men and 425 mg a day for women.
