Uses of Choline and Inositol
Inositol is a vitamin you are able to make from glucose, and it is also available in whole grain foods. Choline is a water soluble nutritional substance that also can be synthesized in your body. No specific deficiency condition or syndrome has yet been reported for either inositol or choline. There are conditions where the blood level is decreased for reasons not totally understood. Greater intake of foods containing these nutrients is a good health choice.
Inositol and Neuropathy
Inositol was at one time considered a B-complex vitamin. In nature, it is found in the form of myo-inositol and is present in all living cells. If you are diabetic, increased dietary inositol may help prevent or even improve diabetic nerve disorders as well as the neuropathies due to chronic kidney failure.
Choline and your Cells
Choline also used to be considered a B-complex vitamin. It is no longer classified as a vitamin, but is now considered an essential nutrient. It was determined in 1998 by the Institute of Medicine that although you can make choline, that you may not make enough for your body’s needs. A minimum daily requirement for adults has been set at 425 milligrams per day for women and 550 milligrams for men. According to the “Journal of the American College of Nutrition,” choline is important to brain development, liver function and cancer prevention. It is a vital part of the cell membrane structure of all your cells.
Choline and your Brain
Choline is vital to the development of the brain and memory functions. Choline is also needed for the development of vital organs in infants. Maternal stores of choline are diverted to the fetus and later to the breast milk. Pregnant and breastfeeding women must assure that they get enough choline for both their own needs and the infant’s. The “Journal of the American College of Nutrition” lists good dietary sources of choline as beef and chicken liver, eggs, wheat germ, bacon, dried soybeans and pork. Choline is included in most multivitamin and mineral tablets.
