Acetylcholine/Choline Deficiency in Chronic Illness – The Hunt for the Missing Egg

ucm278430We hear a lot about vitamins and minerals such as B12, folate, magnesium, vitamin C, and so on, but there seems very little talk these days on the importance of dietary lecithin and choline. Are you consuming an adequate amount of acetylcholine, or other phospholipids? The odds are that you are not.

A little bit about choline

The human body produces choline by methylation of phosphatidylethanolamine (from dietary sources such as lecithin and others) to form phosphatidylcholine in the liver by the PEMT enzyme. Phosphatidylcholine may also be consumed in the diet or by supplementation. Choline is oxidized to betaine which acts as an important methyl donor and osmolyte.

For those wanting to see how this relates to the methylation cycle, below is a nice graphic (courtesy of Wikipedia).

Choline metabolism

It is well known that magnesium deficiency is widespread (57% of the population does not meet the U.S. RDA according to the USDA), but the numbers for choline deficiency are even more shocking.

According the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) in 2003-2004, only about 10% of the population have an adequate intake of choline. This means about 90% of the population consumes a diet deficient in choline. Furthermore, those without an adequate intake of choline may not have symptoms.

Along with folate and B12 deficiency, inadequate consumption of choline can lead to high homocysteine and all the risks associated with hyperhomocysteinaemia, such as cardiovascular disease, neuropsychiatric illness (Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia) and osteoporosis. Inadequate choline intake can also lead to fatty liver or non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD).

The most common symptoms of choline deficiency are fatty liver and/or hemorrhagic kidney necrosis. Consuming choline rich foods usually relieve these deficiency symptoms. Diagnosing fatty liver isn’t as simple as running  ALT and AST since nearly 80% of people with fatty liver have normal levels of these enzymes according to a population study published in the journal Hepatology. In fact, in an experiment, 10 women were fed a diet low in choline. Nine developed fatty liver and only one had elevated liver enzymes.

For those who are genotyped by 23andMe, there is a SNP (rs7946) related to NAFLD you can look at in the PEMT gene called PEMT G523A (V175M). Caucasians with nonalcoholic fatty liver are more likely to carry the rs7946 (T), with the effect being most pronounced for rs7946(T;T) genotypes. [PMID 16051693]

If you are genotyped by 23andMe, make sure you are logged in to 23andMe and you will see your results for this SNP.


Choline, the nervous system, and the heart

Despite it’s role in the CNS and stimulating parasympathetic activity, there is very little info about choline and mental illness. However, in a large population-based study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, people with higher blood levels of choline had lower levels of anxiety – however, levels of choline did not correlate with depressive symptoms.

Despite the lack of studies, it has been clinically observed that supplementing Lecithin or putting patients on a Lecithin rich diet can lower levels of anxiety, help the nervous system by establishing balance between sympathetic and parasympathetic, and even manage cardiac dysrhthmias. The Milner Acetylcholine Protocol (MAP) uses lecithin to manage cardiac dysrhthmias.

Phospholipids and the cell membrane

The fundamental building blocks of all cell membranes are phospholipids. Lecithin consists of phospholipids such as phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol, Phosphatidic acid, other minor phospholipids and glycolipids. About 50% of the mass of most cell membranes are composed of phospholipids. The plasma membranes of cells also contain glycolipids and cholesterol – which correspond to about 40% of the total lipid molecules. Adequate intake of phospholipids and glycolipids is important for the integrity of the cell membranes. Lecithin contains a balanced amount of phospholipids and glycolipids.

Phospholipid supplementation has also been shown to help with mitochondrial dysfunction in patients with diseases such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, chronic Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, and Gulf War Illness. Fatigue reduced about 40% in Chronic Fatigue Syndrome patients after lipid replacement therapy (supplementing phospholipids) according to the Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Adequate intake of choline and choline-rich foods

Adequate intake of choline varies by age. Here is a table by

Adequate Intake (AI) levels for choline are:


Adequate Intake (AI)
of Choline

Infants:(0-6 months)
(7-12 months)
125 milligrams
150 milligrams
Children:(1-3 years)
(4-8 years)
(9-13 years)
200 milligrams
250 milligrams
375 milligrams
Adolescents:(14-18 years)400 milligrams (Females)
550 milligrams (Males)
Adults:(19 and older)425 milligrams (Females)
550 milligrams (Males)
Pregnant women450 milligrams
Breastfeeding women550 milligrams also has a very nice graphic showing the best sources of choline. According to their chart, beef liver and egg are by far the best sources for lecithin with modest amounts in lean beef, chicken breast, cod, wheat germ, and cauliflower.
Unfortunately, not all nutrition data is the same, and for the sake of comparison, below is what Wikipedia lists as high choline foods.

Since cooking eggs at high temperatures destroys the choline content, it’s best to cook the egg so the yolk is runny to preserve lecithin content. For people without egg allergies, properly cooked eggs is one of the best sources of lecithin.

In presence of an egg allergy, consuming liver or supplementing with sunflower lecithin may be the best options to ensure an adequate intake of choline. Sunflower lecithin may be a better source for lecithin than soy because unlike soy lecithin, sunflower lecithin is never derived from GMO crops. Also, soy is generally more allergenic than sunflower, so soy lecithin could potentially provoke unwanted effects in sensitive individuals.

Acetylcholine, phospholipids, autoantibodies, and a word of caution

Acetylcholine and antiphospholipid autoantibodies are seen in various autoimmune and chronic illnesses. It is well know that with Myasthenia Gravis, patients most commonly have autoantibodies against nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR). A large number of CFS patients may have acetylcholine receptor antibodies according to a study published in the International Journal of Molecular Medicine.

Dysautonomia and POTS can also be associated with autoantibodies against acetylcholine receptors. Mayo medical laboratories has a very comprehensive Autoimmune Dysautonomia Evaluation lab test that tests for autoantibodies against acetylcholine receptors and much more.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome (or Hughes syndrome) is an autoimmune condition that can lead to hypercoagulation and blood clots. Conditions such as Lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Fibromyalgia are often associated with antiphospholipid antibodies. Antiphospholipid antibodies can even develop in presence of chronic infections such as Hepatitis C, Syphilis, Chlamydia pneumoniae, EBV, HHV-6, Lyme disease, mycoplasma, Q Fever, and many other infections. Antiphospholipid syndrome can be tested for with LabCorp’s Thrombotic Risk Profile.

At this time there is insufficient evidence to determine if supplementing lecithin would be beneficial or harmful for those with acetylcholine receptor autoantibodies or antiphospholipid syndrome. More clinical research is needed to understand how lecithin supplementation influences the various autoimmune processes that may exist in these patients.

  1. Melissa Says:

    This article was particularly interesting to me as I have been diagnosed with Lyme and CFS in the past and also have Myasthenia Gravis, POTS/Dysautomnia as well as heterozygous for the MTHFR gene, which I’ve begun to suspect plays a role in my diseases and perhaps this as well. Thanks for the valuable info!

  2. Susan Says:

    Thanks for the good information. You may also want to add some information about cystic fibrosis and choline. There’s been some interesting papers from British Columbia on this topic. Thanks for the reference to the papers on chronic fatigue. Very helpful.

  3. geneticgenie Says:

    Susan – If I were to include all info there is about choline, I might as well write a book. But interesting note about cystic fibrosis. A little research shows that they can have high homocysteine and tend to have low glutathione too. And choline can improve homocysteine and glutahtione in cystic fibrosis patients. There is a lot of talk about using B12 and Folate to reduce homocysteine, with not as much talk about how prevalent choline deficiency is. Choline lowers homocysteine. And like folate, it turns into an important methyl donor when it is oxidized into betaine.

  4. geneticgenie Says:

    Interesting history Melissa. Were you ever tested for acetylcholine receptor autoantibodies or antiphospholipid antibodies?

  5. MK Says:

    I have several biggie mutations in the methylation cycle and have been on various vitamins and supplements for several years with mixed results. I started on 1 Tbsp per day of liquid soy lecithin back in the spring, and there was an almost immediate and very noticeable difference in my anxiety level, chronic constipation, and focusing issues. Despite being in the gifted program as a kid and having a high IQ, I have always been frustrated with my attention level and ability to finish what I start (didn’t finish HS on time, dropped out/kicked out of college multiple times 10 years ago). I am now taking college classes and getting all A’s. In the middle of summer semester I ran out of lecithin and kept meaning to pick some up and didn’t really make it a priority, but for the 2 weeks I was off of it I would just sit in front of the computer, unable to complete the papers I had to write. That spaciness and lack of focus went away as soon as I restarted the supplement. I’ve tried citicoline and a normal choline/inositol supplement, and they both made me nutty. Lecithin doesn’t do that. Tastes like crap and the texture is nasty but I can choke it down if it gets me through school. : )

  6. Shae Says:

    I have Dysautonomia (hyperMCAS POTS and NCS/NMH) plus a host of comorbid conditions. I am a ‘no call’ on this allele. Any suggestions?

  7. geneticgenie Says:

    Shae – A no call for that gene probably means that 23andMe had trouble genotyping that part or area of your DNA. So there are no conclusions you can draw from that.

    However, it’s just a single gene and it’s not determinant of fatty liver or choline deficiency. It just increases odds of developing fatty liver which can be caused by choline deficiency.

    I don’t give medical advice, but do you eat eggs? Some may do well with them, some potentially worse depending on autoantibodies and allergies. Nevertheless, most otherwise healthy people do not get enough lecithin as described in the post.

    POTS can be caused by acetylcholine dysregulation and acetylcholine receptor antibodies and many other things. What to do in that case isn’t clear to me, but a good POTS specialist (found at usually knows how to test for these things and what to do about them.

  8. Shae Says:

    I love eggs. Unfortunately, I’m a complicated zebra…I can’t take the typical Meds, and have unfortunate comorbidities. Kinda hosed, basically. I’m also hyperMCAS POTS (extremely rare subset of hyper POTS) as well as NCS/NMH, so it gets complicated, indeed. I know several of my COMT SNPs carry mutations.

  9. Tiffany Says:

    I got a prenatal diagnosis of trisomy 21 for my last child and read a study in a mouse model of T21 where pre- and perinatal choline improved symptoms. I started 3 g/day choline at ~20 weeks and my now 8 month old was born with no major health issues and is progressing age appropriately in terms of meeting milestones. We have continued choline during breastfeeding. I would love to find out the level of methylation on my son’s 21st chromosome as I’m sure that the high dose choline has decreased the severity of effects from the additional chromosome.

  10. melvin Says:

    the snp you named above for pemt is the one my results say is the normal one TT and shows green not red colored like the mthfr.

    Why would the wild type normal be a higher risk for fatty liver?

  11. geneticgenie Says:

    First, the wild type isn’t always beneficial. Second, it is the wild type for caucasians, but not for most other ethnicities.

    Digging a bit more before this comment, it doesn’t appear that there is universal agreement that this SNP increases risk of NAFLD. However, caucasians with NAFLD appear to be more likely to be TT. Confusing indeed!

  12. James Says:

    Great article but I think there is an error.

    We are only interested in the raw egg yolk portion of the egg which would be about 17 grams. This means there is roughly 116 mg of lecithin per raw egg yolk and not 389 mg.

  13. geneticgenie Says:

    James – thank you for your correction. Will correct the article.

  14. john Says:

    I am diagnosed with myasthenia gravis.and undergone post thymectomy. Can I use this lecithin as a supplement. Will I see any improvement in my situation. Thanks in advance.

  15. Kathrynn Says:

    I have been having some intermittent ptosis (eyelid drooping) and myasthenia gravis was suggested as a possibility. I put together several conversations about myasthenia gravis with a word I remembered from my detox report “acetylation”, so I ran my 23andme results for PEMT and I am +/+ homozygous TT for the rs7946 and also rs4646408 is +/+ TT as well. Of the rest of the PEMT there are 22 heterozygous, 10 normal, and 13 not genotyped. According to my detox report I am probably a slow acetylator since I have NAT2 R197Q rs1799930 AA +/+. Also in the detox report are CYP1B1 L432V rs1056836 GG +/+ and CYP1B1 N453S rs1800440 CC +/+ but I’m not sure if that has an impact on acetylcholine or not. Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disease. In myasthenia gravis, antibodies block, alter, or destroy the receptors for acetylcholine at the neuromuscular junction, which prevents the muscle contraction from occurring. I have autoimmune diseases already which automatically makes me susceptible to others.
    Am I correct in thinking that these gene defects regarding acetylation would mean that I have less acetylcholine in the first place? If so it would seem to me that antibodies further blocking receptors for what little there is might bring on symptoms or exacerbate them.
    I was having an episode of ptosis yesterday and I find it interesting/strange that I had a craving for fried eggs with runny yolks. I ate 5 of them. The ptosis went away later that evening. I hadn’t read your article at that time but now I wonder if it was my body craving the lecithin for the choline? Also, I happen to have choline bitartrate powder… would that be beneficial to take or not?

  16. Christi Says:

    I’m hoping to connect the dots between this and BCHE gene rs1799807, cholinesterase inhibitors, nightshade intolerance. Anne Wright has written on it.

    I’ve had a decrease in POTS like symptoms, mysthenia gravis like symptoms, CFS/Fibromyalgia, just from eliminating Nightshade foods.

    I like eggs but they seem to make me sick to my stomach, I wish I could benefit from a choline supplement I still have anxiety and memory problems.

  17. Dan Says:

    HI Christi,

    I’m not a doctor, but a patient like you. I’ve also found that I need to avoid nightshade foods big time or I get muscle cramps, twitching, and just overall overstimulation. High acetylcholine levels can cause anxiety as well due to that overstimulation.

    I recently found a study that showed a connection between B12 deficiency and low acetylcholinesterase levels, suggesting that perhaps B12 may help increase the breakdown of acetylcholine.

    The same with l-carnitine. Treatment with l-carnitine helped restore acetylcholinesterase levels in aged rats.

    Not sure if the same thing occurs in humans, but it’s worth noting that B12 levels are often functionally low, as are l-carnitine.

    Hope this is helpful in some way.

  18. David Says:

    No discussion about choline, phosphatidylcholine or lecithin (or even L-carnitine, betaine or TMG) consumption is complete without a thorough discussion of TMAO (Trimethylamine N-oxide).

    There are several studies on this subject. Here is one:

    Gut flora metabolism of phosphatidylcholine promotes cardiovascular… – PubMed – NCBI

    As far as popular media, Dr. Oz, who used to recommend L-Carnitine supplements, has retracted that recommendation. When it comes to TMAO, there is little difference between L-Carnitine and choline supplements.

  19. Joel Greene Says:

    I have acetylcholine esterase deficiency. My C-reactive protein test was “7″. Do I have a higher level of inflammation or does this mean that a serious health telatefevent is imminent?

  20. fd Says:

    well, thank you so much Researcher. The information was a lot and it took me some days to read and study all, but it was worth it.

  21. Terry Lynch Says:

    Thanks so much for the treasure chest of Lecithin and acetycholine interactions and preponderant choline deficiency pathophysiology.
    Recently a multifocal motor neuropathy(less than 4000 diagnosed US) case showed up in my neigborhood falling over from left sided muscle deterioration. She had been taking IgA twice a month with a present cost presently exceeding $20,000 / month since 1990. Within 6 months on a proper choline rich diet, stress free gardening in a peaceful place, and one tablespoon of granular Lecithin (always purchased direct from manufacturer and kept in the freezer to avoid oxidation!!) her neurologist in NY was flabergasted, astonished, amazed! Totally healed from the incurable and muscles reestablished “that would never come back”.
    I have some questions:
    1.) Is there a hyperglycemic effect for NAFLD diabetics from Lecithin supplementation?
    2.) I see that Homocysteine assay should be done at the testing lab itself since it is sensitive to rapid deteriorization. Did you mention that?
    3.) Did you see the recent article where there was 8 times less loss of gray matter in Alzheimer dementia patients with high homocysteine given large amounts of certain B-Vitamins? Amazing
    4.) Where and how may one get all this genetic testing done and is it just for curiosity sake? Treatmentof deficiency seems primary?
    5.) Do we agree that Non alcoholic fatty liver syndrome etiology may be hepatic lipogeneisis from metabolic processing of fructose natural of concentrated from corn?

    Thank you again! Awesome work!

    Another patient medical researcher

  22. Terry Lynch Says:

    Researcher, I am very grateful or your metabolic treatise! I will be studying your profound observations until my dying day(maybe not so fa of at my age of 67.)

  23. Dan Says:

    “A Researcher”: The info you have provided (and provided and provided and provided) is OVERWHELMING, and impossible to wade through.

    Please try and make it ‘user-friendly’ to the average reader.

    Thank you.

  24. Chris Says:

    For those struggling with B12 deficiency, I recently heard about a new oral prescription alternative to the injections called Eligen B12. I recently read that it works even if you don’t have intrinsic factor (so even if you don’t have normal gut absorption). Apparently it came out a month or two ago. Has anyone heard of it or tried it??

  25. Tomm Says:

    It has a lot to do with nicotinic acetylcholine receptors like alpha 7 NAchR. It is involved in inflammatory pathways more than you would think.

    Even patents for treating chronic disease with AChEI natural drugs like galantamine exist –

    That’s why smoking may help lose weight, alleviate arthritis, improve cognition, etc… or do right the opposite.

    Huperzine A, Galantamine, lecithin, DMAE, …. and B-vitamins due to their importance in making the acetylcholine like B1 – thiamine.

  26. steve Says:

    What about Egg Lecithin?
    I use the Capsules from Nature’s Plus

  27. David Clark Says:

    I found the site: And all I have to say is, wow, what a lot of information to take in.
    I have been having strong symptoms along these lines for a few years (I am 51 now). I also now realize that I may have had milder symptoms since being a child (particularly chronic diarrhea and trouble swallowing certain foods). I have only in the last few days, however, realized that I may be dealing with one of the myasthenic syndromes probably congenital (I am aware of a couple others in my family who have died of symptoms similar to this all descended from a common great-grandfather diagnosed with “ataxia” who died of it in 1931 at the age of 63, but many others including my father who has dealt with milder symptoms, particularly trouble swallowing certain foods). I see a group of NPs but they haven’t considered this yet. So I am going to have them schedule an EMG to be done to see what level of muscular challenge I am dealing with.
    I have been diagnosed with PBC/AMA over the last few months. I am still a little unclear about how supplementing my diet may exacerbate any autoimmunity issues. I have also several months ago found out about several food allergies. None were severe, but several were strong including many “hypo-allergenic” foods such as apples, pears, peas, onions, etc. I am probably allergic to all grains but I am not gluten or even lactic intolerant. Pseudograins seem to be fine. I’ve also started a night-shade avoidance diet (anti-inflammatory). Dairy, especially cheese and other unsweetened milk products seem to actually help me. I don’t do well with legumes although green beans seem to be fine. It’s just been quite the pathway to figure out.

  28. Garry Says:

    The achr-ganglionic autoantibody was found in my blood several years ago. Is there any new news on choline supplementation if you have this condition?

  29. Margie Says:

    I have primary biliary cirrhosis, nafld, sjogrens , pulmonary fibrosis, hashimotos. Went into remission but developed myasthenia gravis and menieres anyway. Am on mestinon. It is positively affecting my fatty liver, the fat seems to be finally getting better. I have always done better on vitamins with more choline and was in l carnitine while I developed the mg. U believe choline and supporting vitamin supplementation could be an effective treatment for fatty liver. The mestinon also helps with mental clarity. Mestinon increases acetylcholine. Tramadol or a derivative I think will be important also in treating autoimmune diseases because of its effect in serotonin. Alpha lipoic acid put my thyroid in remission.

  30. Alessa Says:

    Thank you for this very informative article. I recently had stomach issues and stopped all my supplements. That was two weeks ago and now my symptoms are bad. I have Sjogren’s and Hashimoto’s and I am in a huge amount of pain, have dry eyes, sore throat, and neck feels like it needs a chiropractor every day. I restarted my fish oil supplement yesterday and will restart lecithin today. I didn’t realize how bad things could get without it. As a sidenote, I also have CFS, depression, anxiety, and am extra sensitive to pain. I carry MTHFR but not sure about the other SNP mentioned above. I’m a believer in the power of lecithin.

  32. Marcia Lester Says:

    I have Myasthenia Gravis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Sjogren’s, and my dysautonomia was finally diagnosed. My infertility was caused by endometriosis(autoimmune), and, an endometrial receptor cell defect. MG is also a receptor cell defect. My neurologist, informed me, that MG with dysautonomia wasn’t unusual. Having trouble swallowing food, doctors diagnosed me with achalasia, related to my MG. I, also have common variable immune deficiency syndrome. Following, a second bout of thrombophlebitis, I was tested for anti-phospholipid syndrome and everything came back normal. Doctors felt the thrombophlebitis was secondary to taking b.c. pills and hormones. My B12 levels became elevated after I took Stresstabs with B12 in them, which, I discontinued. However, I will discuss a lecithin supplement with my multiple physicians, and see what they think. Thank you for the information.

    Shopping for a new or used auto might be a difficult method if you do not know what you are actually carrying out. By educating yourself about auto shopping before you visit the car dealership, you can make things much easier for yourself. The following tips can help your next buying trip become more satisfying.

    Constantly bring a auto mechanic together when looking for a whole new motor vehicle. Auto sellers are popular for promoting lemons and you may not wish to be their next patient. When you can not have a mechanic to think about automobiles with you, no less than make certain you have him evaluate your final choice prior to buying it.

    Know your restrictions. Before you start purchasing for your vehicle or truck, choose what you can afford to spend, and stick to it. Don’t neglect to feature curiosity about your calculations. You can expect to pay about twenty percent as an advance payment as well, so be ready.

    Well before seeing a car dealership, know what sort of automobile you would like. Research all you choices just before purchasing so you can evaluate which works for your finances and household requires. Do your homework to determine exactly how much you should pay to get a probable vehicle.

    Prior to signing any agreement take time to read each range, including the small print. When there is anything listed that you simply do not comprehend, tend not to indicator before you get an respond to which you fully grasp. Unsavory salesmen are able to use a legal contract to put a lot of fees which were not talked about.

    When you retain the preceding suggestions under consideration the very next time that you simply go shopping for a vehicle, you will certainly be more prone to get a good package. Buying a automobile lacks to become a head ache. Use the information out of this article and you may have the vehicle you desire at the very good cost.

  38. Lilac Says:

    Choline can also make people very depressed, because it can lead to excess of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. That is known to cause depression, and new drugs are being developed that block excess acetylcholine in the brain. See for example the work of Yale researcher Marina Picciotti. The body uses dietary choline to make acetylcholine.

    On the genetic side, some persons have a mutation in the BCHE gene (rs 1799807), which leads to a shortage of the enzyme “Butyrylcholinesterace,” which breaks down acetylcholine as well as other chemicals with choline. Thus this enzyme may lead to having excess acetylcholine, and one can check to see if one has that snp, since 23andMe codes for it, and Promethease reports on it. The disorder goes by the name “Pseudocholinesterace deficiency,” and in medical circles it is discussed in terms of choline-based anesthesia drugs given for operations, but the effect the mutation may have for depression is missed. It is important to know that heterogeneity for Pseudocholinesterace Deficiency can also confer difficulty with choline medications and excess acetylcholine in the brain.

    I recently read of some drugs that might help counteract that, as well as nutmeg!
    For myself, having this SNP (heterozygote), I feel best avoiding choline. See some discussions on all this at

    Our forebears knew there was a connection between choline and depression. The word “melancholia” has the root of “choline,” and that is no coincidence. See “black bile.”

    So there you have it, another view of choline. Its benefit depends on one’s genetic makeup. Online you can get lists of foods high in choline, and experiment with your mood. For example eat low choline for a while, then have lots of lecithin all together, and see what happens. My mood is better when I avoid it–but we are all different.

    You need of a supplement with phosphatidylcholine that is not in a pill form so it does not have to be digestive through the distractive digestive system with minimal absorption and therefore minimal effects. Phosphatidylcholine should be in the form of a liposome in order to have a 90% absorption rate for full benefits of phosphatidylcholine via the Liposome technology.

    Nice article and thank you for the information. I knew about choline deficiency from here: I didn’t realise that it had so much underlying genetics to it.

  43. OrganisedPauper Says:

    I have several genetic factors that collide. More than one that affect the synnthesis of choline, meaning I’m likely to be deficient, and one that lowers the production of phosphotydilecholine. But, I also have more than one genetic factor which means saturated fat increases obesity and type diabetes and other health problems. Most sources of choline seem to come with a dose of saturated fat. As I need more choline than most people, and possibly betaine I’m not sure what to do. I have found saturated fat makes me feel quite ill. I already have Bipolar, diabetes, Fibromyalgia and possibly chronic fatigue. Oh and MTHFR, and a whole lot of other stuff I’m still getting my head around.

    Inositol is also a part of the vitamin B complex group. Many healthy diets as- egg, meat, nuts, etc are the sources of inositol. Inositol supplement is also a good source to fulfill the need of vitamin B in the body.
