Make sure you're choosing the best choline supplement!
Isn't your health worth it?
Choline is an unusual essential nutrient. You can get it from foods but you can also make it in your body. However, many people are not able to produce enough choline (such as postmenopausal women and people with certain genetics). Getting adequate choline from the diet helps prevent fatty liver and muscle damage which can occur with choline deficiency. Supplemental choline has shown potential benefit with respect to stroke recovery, cognition, Alzheimer's disease, asthma, and ulcerative colitis.
 
A problem with choline supplements, however, is that they rarely list the amount of choline they contain. If you simply purchase a choline supplement and follow the instructions on its label, you could end up with a daily serving of choline ranging from as little as 50 mg to as much as 1,500 mg! 
 
To help, ConsumerLab.com selected and purchased ten popular choline supplements and tested their amounts of choline. We also compared them on price — finding that you could be paying almost 10 times as much as you need to depending on the brand you choose.

Finally, ConsumerLab.com identified several products which offer exceptional quality and value — making them CL's Top Picks
