Choline is present in all living cells and facilitates the movement of fats into the cells. It combines with fatty acids and phosphoric acid in the liver to form lecithin. Choline is required for the production of acetycholine, a neurotransmitter. Choline is found in most animal tissue and is necessary for nerve function and fat metabolism. Choline is lipotropic (acting on fat metabolism by hastening removal, or decreasing the deposit of fat in the liver).
