Michel notes how choline is essential for cell membranes and brain functioning. Insufficient dietary choline supply can cause choline deficiency which manifests in the development of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
The study investigated the effects of choline deficiency on muscle fuction.
Michel found that choline deficiency altered the composition of muscle membrane cells and advesely affected muscle function.
The richest dietary food sources of choline are (concentration mg/100 g): beef liver (418), chicken liver (290), eggs (251).
