Hill is allied to the brain and liver

Hill is allied to the brain and liver

The hill is one of the B complex vitamins. The two main functions of the hill involve the brain. It is important for the formation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which indirectly regulates memory, cognition and enters into control of heart rate, respiration and muscle activity. Another function of the choline is to enter into the formation of the sphingomyelin that forms the nerve cover we call the myelin sheath. The myelin sheath has to exist for the nerve impulse to walk in the neurons, it is the cover of the neurons, the structure that surrounds the neuron.

Proven Benefits

Brain Allium: Choline is important for brain in two ways. It acts on the formation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine that indirectly regulates memory and cognition. In addition, it acts on the formation of the sphingomyelin that forms the nerve cover we call the myelin sheath. The myelin sheath has to exist for the nerve impulse to walk in the neurons, it is the cover of the neurons, the structure that surrounds the neuron.

Good for the heart: By acting on the formation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, choline also contributes to heart rate control. Choline also helps in the formation of an enzyme capable of protecting the body against homocysteine, a substance toxic to the body, especially to the heart.

Beneficial to the muscles: By acting on the formation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, choline also contributes to the control of muscle activity.

Liver ally: The liver accumulates some of the fat that we form inside the body, all the excess calories the body reserves forming triglycerides, reserve fuel, a part goes to the muscles and another to the liver, and if there is accumulation in this organ there are problems. The liver needs the choline to form a transporter to remove this fat and make the body use it for energy.

Important for pregnant women: Choline is essential for pregnant women because it is at this stage that the brain of the baby is formed and this nutrient is needed for this to occur.

Allied bones: The hill can help in bone formation, as it contributes to the synthesis of collagen, which in turn has a role in bone development.

Choline deficiency

A choline deficient diet can cause cardiovascular and degenerative brain problems and also favor accumulation of fat in the liver. The signs of choline deficiency are: cognitive deficits, impaired concentration, impaired cognition and understanding, muscle changes, muscle aches, excessive salivation, nausea and nausea.

Choline supplementation

Choline supplementation is not common because the lack of this substance is rare. The supplement can only be ingested after medical advice and may be indicated for some pregnant women and for people with muscle aches or accumulation of fat in the liver. Elderly people may also take this supplement.

Risks of excess consumption

The maximum amount that can be ingested of choline to the day is 4 grams and the excess only occurs by means of the supplementation.
