Best supplements for the brain: Choline and essential nutrients needed to boost cognitive function

The brain needs to be nourished in order for it to function properly is it’s important to eat the right foods. Vitamins, minerals and nutrients hold a host of different benefits for different parts of the body, but when it comes to the brain, one nutrient proven vital is choline.

 

It may not be as well-recognised as vitamin C or calcium, but choline is just as important to your wellbeing, according to Holland & Barrett.

It explains: “Choline is not technically a vitamin, but it is often grouped together with the B vitamins. It is an essential nutrient, though, which means our bodies need it to function normally.

“There are many benefits of choline. We need choline to produce the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which helps with memory, mood and cognitive function, making it an essential brain food.

“A large-scale American study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2017, found that a higher choline intake was linked to better cognitive performance.”

Choline is also important for a healthy liver and for maintaining our nervous system.

 

While it is available in supplement form, choline can be found in a range of different foods.

 

According to experts at Healthline, the richest dietary sources of choline include:

 

  • Beef liver
  • Chicken liver
  • Eggs
  • Fresh cod
  • Salmon

Think You Have COVID-19? We Are Testing.

How does it work?

  • Call your local AMC and consult with one of our physicians. The care provider will determine which diagnostic fits best for you – COVID-19 PCR or Antibody testing.
  • Request an appointment for COVID-19 testing either in clinic or at your place.
  • Results for PCR testing may take up to 24 hours to process while results for Antibody testing are ready within 15 minutes.

How PCR and Antibody Testing differ from each other?

  • The PCR test takes a swab from the back of the nose and throat and looks for the presence of the virus itself.
  • The Antibody testing looks at a blood sample for antibodies generated in the body in response to the virus, showing whether or not the person tested has been exposed to it in the past.
Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for traveling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact AMC Tbilisi.
*During the busy lab times, PCR Testing may take up to 48 hours to get the result
