Choline with B-Complex
- SKU 32706 | 60 Capsules
Choline plays a critical role in health maintenance, but more than 90 percent of adults don’t get optimal amounts of choline from food. That’s where Choline with B-Complex comes in.
Choline with B-Complex provides the active forms of choline and B vitamins for the greatest benefits.
- Daily energy levels
- Mental focus and clarity
- Healthy blood pressure and cholesterol balance††
- Essential liver function
- Stress and fatigue reduction
- Essential prenatal nutrition
- Cognitive development
- Athletic endurance and muscle recovery
- Helps restore levels of this essential nutrient that may be depleted by anticholinergic drugs or other prescription medication*
In 1998, the Institutes of Medicine recognized choline as an essential nutrient. The body uses choline in many complex ways:
- For the synthesis of neurotransmitters, especially acetylcholine
- As a critical building block of cell walls
- To facilitate cell signaling
- To regulate homocysteine
- For lipid metabolism and liver function*

Who doesn’t get enough choline from food?
Nearly everyone, but some people are particularly at risk—either because their diets are low in choline or because they have a greater need for choline. Foods that are high in choline include beef liver, wheat germ, egg yolks, beef, seafood, chicken, cruciferous vegetables, and some legumes. Because many vegetables are not good sources of choline, vegetarians and vegans are especially at risk for inadequate choline levels. Researchers are also learning that some people—as much as half of the population—may have genetic traits that increase their choline requirements. In addition, pregnant and lactating women have higher choline requirements.
Is Choline with B-Complex safe for women who are pregnant or nursing?
Yes. In fact, women who are pregnant or nursing have higher choline needs because of the role it plays in cellular and neuron development in the fetus. Prenatal choline use may have a significant impact on learning, memory, and attention span in children. Additionally, maternal choline intake supports neural tube development in the fetus. Of course, choline is also necessary to the health of pregnant women themselves because it is depleted during and immediately after their pregnancy.*
