Solgar Vitamins Choline/Inositol 250/250mg is needed for the proper transmission of nerve impulses from the brain through the central nervous system, as well as for gall bladder regulation, liver function and lecithin formation. It also aids in fat and cholesterol metabolism. Inositol is vital for new hair growth. This vitamin has a calming effect and helps reduce cholesterol levels. It helps prevent hardening of the arteries and is important in the formation of lecithin and the metabolism of fat and cholesterol.
Choline 250 mg / Inositol 250 mg Vegetable Capsules contains both Choline and Inositol (commonly known at Vitamin B8), with both playing an important role in several different processes in the body.
Choline is a water-soluble micronutrient which is related to other vitamins such as those in the B Vitamin complex. Similar to the B Vitamins, Choline supports the process of metabolising nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins and fats into energy. Transporting fat, both cholesterol and triglycerides, from the liver to the cells in the body also requires choline and it is responsible for keeping the liver clear from fat build-up.
Choline makes up the structural component of fat, and can therefore be found in food sources which naturally contain fats, such as liver, oily fish, legumes and beef. Choline is beneficial for disorders of the nervous system such as Parkinson's disease.
Inositol, also known as Vitamin B8, is a water-soluble structure and it forms a component of every cell membrane in the body. It functions in a similar way to choline. Inositol, although technically not an essential B vitamin because it can be synthesised in the body, is still a very important nutrient. Food which naturally contain Inositol are citrus fruits, lecithin oil, seeds, whole grains, nuts and green leafy vegetables.
