Choline

What Is It?

Choline is a cell-signalling molecule that is vital for healthy liver function and brain development and is commonly used to enhance cognitive processes and muscular efficiency.

It can be found in many fat and protein rich foods including eggs, liver meats, beans and nuts, in the form of free-form supplements, and in many pre-workout supplements.

What Does It Do?

Choline helps to encourage muscle cells to contract efficiently and may help suppress fatigue during exercise. In particular it is a precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is vital to nerve function and the direct signalling of muscular contractions.

Combined with a sensible diet and workout regime, Choline will help to increase muscular endurance and suppress fatigue during training.

When Do I Take It?

To take advantage of the anti-fatigue and cognitive properties of Choline, it is best taken 15-20 minutes before exercise. Pure form Choline capsules or powder can be mixed with water, or with any other type of supplement and consumed. 

Pre-workout supplements containing Choline should be taken with water before exercise. The most efficacious dose is 250-500 milligrams per serve.

How Long Does It Take To Work?

Choline starts working as soon as it enters the bloodstream, which is typically 15 – 30 minutes after consumption. Users can expect to experience an increase in mental alertness, concentration and mental focus within this timeframe. Consistent use in conjunction with a sensible diet and workout regime will experience the full performance and cognitive enhancing effects within the first 2 weeks of use.

How Much Does It Cost?

Pre-Workout supplements containing Choline, range anywhere from $1.00 to $3.00 per serve, depending on the size and quality of the product. 

Based on an average price of $2.00 per serve, and based on four serves per week, supplementing with Pre-workout products containing Choline will typically cost around $32 per month.
