What is Choline Bitartrate
Choline Bitartrate belongs to the group Cholinergics. A supplement is said to be cholinergic when it increases the activity of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter associated with memory and attention span. Cholinergics have been studied in the context of age-related dementia.
Choline is an essential nutrient for the human body that is often overlooked. Our body can produce it and we get it mainly from animal food. Eggs, liver and other organ meats are the most effective sources.
Choline is often taken with Nootropics from the Racetam class because these racetams stimulate the acetylcholine receptors, so that more acetylcholine has to be produced.
In addition, the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) concluded that Choline contributes to normal fat metabolism and normal homocysteine metabolism. Also, EFSA has established a cause-and-effect relationship for the maintenance of normal liver function.
Choline contributes to normal fat metabolism and supports the cleansing action of the liver as the ultimate precursor to phosphatidylcholine. In addition, choline is a nutrient used to produce acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter.
Choline plays a role in homocysteine metabolism. Homocysteine is well broken down when homocysteine metabolism is normal. This is important because high levels of homocysteine are harmful. Choline aids in the production of methyl groups. Choline is involved in the production and breakdown of homocysteine.

The most common dose of Choline Bitartrate to take is 500-2000mg per day. Always start with the lowest dose, if the effect is insufficient, this can easily be adjusted upwards.
Side effects should not occur as Choline is a natural substance (the body can make Choline itself) and Bitartrate is simply a salt that has been added to allow better absorption by the body. If you do notice side effects, it could be that the dose you are taking is too high.
