I have been investigating choline’s on the internet recently and I’m finding a great deal of conflicting information. Many of the articles indicate how healthy it is for heart health (lowering homocysteine levels, etc.) and other articles explain how bad it is for heart health (increasing homocysteine levels, hardening of the arteries, contributing to arterial plaque, etc.) and all of this has to do with the way choline (citicoline, etc) interact with gut bacteria.
Do you have anything definitive on this?
