- Choline is an organic compound, usually grouped within the Vitamin B complex. There are eight B vitamins in the Vitamin B complex family. Although each performs a different function in the body, they all work together to maintain good health.
- Choline is available in various forms namely, choline bitartrate, choline citrate,choline chloride and others.
- Choline Bitartrate (L(+) choline bitartrate) is a colorless or white crystal powder, which is a water-soluble part of the B Vitamin family. Its IUPAC Name: 2-hydroxyethyl(trimethyl)azanium; (2R,3R)-2,3,4-trihydroxy-4-oxobutanoate and CAS Registry Number is : 87-67-2. Source
- The body needs B vitamins to manufacture neurotransmitters, chemicals that control alertness and mood by speeding nerve signals through the brain.
- As B vitamins are water soluble, they are excreted in the urine and can be quickly depleted from the body. Only a small amount is stored in the body. Because of this, it is important that we take supplements to replenish these important vitamins in our body. Source
- Choline bitartrate is an essential nutrient needed by the nervous system to produce acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that facilitates the transmission of impulses between neurons. Source
Natural Source of Choline bitartrate: Egg yolk, peanuts, wheat germ, organ meats and legumes.
Health Benefits of Choline Bitartrate:
- Being a product of vitamin, it can be applied to medicine, healthcare product and food.
- It is a nutritious additive and fat remover, enhance fatty metabolism and eliminate the accumulation of fat in liver.
- Influence muscle contractions, movement, coordination and enhance memory.
- Involved in higher level brain functions like memory, thought and intellect.
- Is vital to the structural integrity of cell walls, the production of amino acids and proteins and the metabolism of fats.
- Aid in the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease, manic depression and improve the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.
Deficiencies in B vitamins causes:
- Depression or signs of decreased mental functioning.

Scientific Literature Analysis
|S.No.||Title||Citations||Publication Date||Results / Statastical data||Dolcera Summary|
|1||Effect of choline supplementation on fatigue in trained cyclists.||Med Sci Sports Exerc. 1995 May;27(5):668-73.||1995-05-01||1. Twenty male cyclists (ages 23-29) with maximal aerobic power (VO2max) between 58 and 81 ml.min-1.kg-1 were randomly divided into BRIEF (N = 10) and PROLONGED (N = 10) groups.
2. One hour after drinking a beverage with or without choline bitartrate (2.43 g), cyclists began riding at a power output equivalent to approximately 150% (BRIEF) and 70% (PROLONGED) of VO2max at a cadence of 80-90 rpm.
3.Time to exhaustion, indirect calorimetry and serum choline, lactate, and glucose were measured.
|Trained cyclists do not deplete choline during supramaximal brief or prolonged submaximal exercise, nor do they benefit from choline supplementation to delay fatigue under given conditions.|
