Americans are living longer than ever. Living to 100 is a blessing when you're in great health. Unfortunately the prevalence of Alzheimers and other diseases associated with memory loss are increasing at an alarming rate. Suffering from memory loss in retirement and old age greatly restricts your ability to enjoy life, as well as puts a strain on children that become caretakers.
Our diets have changed tremendously from the early 1900's when organ meats and eggs were consumed in high amounts. Choline is found most abundantly in these foods. The FDA's recommended daily intake of choline is 550mg; one egg contains 120mg.
The newest research shows that choline is the essential nutrient responsible for brain function; primarily to create new synapses so that neurons are able to properly communicate.
Our choline is specially formulated to cross the blood-brain barrier, so that it is converted into acetycholine, a neurotransmitter. Read the infographic below for more information on choline and memory loss.
