How to meet your choline needs properly
Choline, formerly known as vitamin B4, is a vitamin-like substance and fulfils important tasks in our body. This water-soluble, organic micronutrient is semi-essential and can therefore be produced by the body itself. However, we have to take choline additionally with our food in order to be able to cover our real needs.
The actual vitamin B4 requirement may be higher in certain phases of life. During the growth phase and old age, both women and men need more choline than usual. Pregnancy, breastfeeding or illness are also important reasons that increase the need for this substance.
In order to meet individual needs, one should primarily include beef liver, eggs, fish or soybean oil in meals. We can also get slightly less vitamin B4 from broccoli, cauliflower and nuts. From these sources it is easy to see that it is a great challenge for vegans to control the necessary vitamin B4 intake.
Have your individual vitamin B4 requirements determined by your doctor!
It is also important to keep in mind that individual requirements vary from person to person. In addition to advanced age and diet, other factors such as athletic exertion or genetic prerequisites also play an important role.
Therefore, it is of great importance to determine the individual needs with the doctor and to design the new diet plan accordingly. After determining the individual vitamin B4 requirement, food supplements can also emerge as a sensible solution. However, food supplements are only useful if they fulfil certain criteria.
