  • 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.
Structure of Choline bitartrate Source
  • 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.
  • Decrease cognitive function.

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 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.
