Roe, Annie.

Abstract: Choline is an essential nutrient with multiple links to brain health. As a component of phospholipids, choline is involved in cell signaling, lipid transport, and cell membrane structure. In addition, choline is a precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine and the methyl donor betaine.
