What are the benefits of choline?

Where to get it

If you start adding choline to your diet and you’re still experiencing symptoms, it may be an issue with your overall diet. Your entire diet has to improve to experience the full benefits of choline. Intermittent fasting and a Healthy Keto® diet are the best ways to support the body.

Your intestinal flora (friendly bacteria) have a lot to do with absorbing choline so if there is an imbalance, it may come from not being able to absorb the choline. Choline works closely with purified bile salts to break down fats. It is recommended to take them together. (You can get purified bile salts in Dr. Berg’s Gallbladder Formula Extra Strength or in Dr. Berg’s Gallbladder Support Vegan Formula.)

Good sources of choline:

  • Choline supplement

  • Beef liver

  • Shrimp

  • Eggs

  • Scallops

  • Leafy greens

  • Cruciferous vegetables
