Although choline is not recognized by the FDA, the importance can't be understated in some situations.

People who are endurance athletes are prone to become low in it. Also vegetarians can be as well.

If you are Type A, and make very limit stomach acid, have any decline in nerve function, or have been/tried an endurance athlete, choline may be on your road to health. (Part of the Nomad Catalyst which is recommended for Type A nerve health)

It seems to me like this should be part of the Teacher diet. For me, who makes so little stomach acid I often have undigested food (well was more so), and having been an endurance attempting athlete in the past, the connection seemed strong. Despite the fact that so many Type A super beneficial foods are rich in it, choline is also dependent on a good gut microbial balance in order to absorb it from food - a problem area for Teachers. However supplement form is much more easily absorbed and recommended to circumvent the gut flora problem. Really low stomach acid does mean bad gut flora, often. You can get into a bad cycle of being unable to absorb certain things like choline.

It is used to process fats in the liver, reduces inflammation, and importantly for Teachers it helps cells natural function of removing waste to happen. As Dr. D. has said, Teachers need a cell scrub out more than an enema. Without choline, without the stomach acid to get much, and without the right gut flora even if you do take HCL, supplementation makes sense.

Maybe not all Type A's in this condition are at a point like I have been, but to me it seems imperative, like an on or off switch. After taking it for a few days I feel like the other Type A vitamins I am taking are doing something. When I take immune enhancing stuff, my sinuses respond, etc. Before nothing really happened at all; I just didn't respond. Yesterday I took a bunch of turmeric, some ginseng, and other stuff and got a fever like condition till my head was cleared up; it was intense. Today I had a great BM.

It has also assisted in starting to bring back nerve function. My eye site is much better, much sharper. I am not getting the weird head rush sounds when I stand up to the same degree. Different parts of my body are loosening up.

I highly recommend it for anyone that has been real low on stomach acid, nerve health, in a total lull, and an obvious Type A.

DOS,

That is a very interesting observation about stomach acid and Type A.  I'm going to do some more research.  Thanks for the post.

As always, Lola, your suggestions about protocol are right on target.

Yes but... I am pointing out that protocols and hundreds of dollars worth of NAP supplements didn't do anything until I got some choline in me.
