Choline citrate is a combination of choline with a derivative of citric acid. It is a new form of choline which comprises about 51% of this substance. This means that 1 g of choline citrate corresponds to about 500 mg of choline. Because of that, it contains more choline than e.g. bitartrate.
Choline citrate does not only provide choline but also has one of acetyl groups necessary for the production of acetylcholine – the main neurotransmitter in the central nervous system that is extremely important for normal thought processes and supports cognitive functions.
Choline citrate is combined usually with a more sweet ingredient to neutralise its sour taste. It is available in the form of monopreparations and also as a component of multi-ingredient dietary supplements targeted at improving focus, motivation and psychomotor skills.
