Choline

Choline is something that you actually need quite a bit of, but it comes in many forms and from many foods that we eat. Men need 550mg/day of choline while women need 425mg/day.

Choline is extremely important because it’s an essential part of cell wall membranes, which means that it can help make every cell in your body stronger. Choline also helps create neurotransmitters in the brain and it also acts as a precursor to betaine, which can help prevent heart disease.

Many foods do have choline in them however dairy, eggs, peanuts, soy, liver, and cauliflower are all especially good choices.
