Choline is a critical player in one carbon metabolism, particularly during pregnancy and fetal development. A true ‘building block’ of life, choline helps infants develop strong brains and serves as a methyl donor during pregnancy. Choline complements folate by helping to convert the pro-oxidant amino acid homocysteine into methionine and enhances the availability of DHA to the developing embryo and fetus. Our VitaCholine® brand was chosen as the source of choline in a Cornell University clinical study which showed that increased choline intake during the third trimester was correlated with improved processing speed in infants.
