Natural Health: Choline is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine,
essential for memory and cognition. Also, it is a phospholipid that
helps promote neuronal membrane fluidity, which is important for communication
between brain cells. One form of this fat, phosphatidyl choline, is
the active ingredient in lecithin--an emulsifier commonly found in
processed foods, and derived from either soy or animal sources.
In the brain, phosphatidyl choline also plays a role in repairing
and maintaining neurons. According to Khalsa, most
people ingest about 1,000 mg of lecithin every day as part of a normal
diet, but that amount is not sufficient to promote optimal brain function
Better Nutrition: Choline. Research in animals suggests
that dietary intake of choline early in life can diminish the severity
of memory deficits in aged animals. Within our cells, choline is translated
into the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, which is vital for
efficient brain function and communication.(Cippoli, C.
and Chiari, G. "Effects of L-Acetylcholine on Mental Deterioration
of the Aged," Clinica Terapeutica 132L:429-510, March 31, 1990.)
of the nutrient choline was emphasized a few years ago when the National
Academy of Sciences classified it as an “essential nutrient.”
A study by Dr. Steven Zeisel (1991) from the Department of Nutrition
of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill demonstrated
that volunteers on a choline-deficient diet were not able to produce
enough of this nutrient to maintain health. This demonstrated that choline
must be obtained from the diet. Choline is used in the synthesis of
structural components of all human cell membranes and is a precursor
of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter involved in
muscle control, memory, and many other functions.
