Choline chloride
Choline chloride is an essential nutrient for optimum animal growth, and is integral in building, regulating, and maintaining cell membrane integrity and porosity. It also acts as a lipotropic agent, which aids in the utilization and outward transport of fat in the liver. Choline and choline derivatives are also used in many other industrial applications.
