“Choline in Eggs Reduces Inflammation” – Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola


Egg Nutrition Facts and Information Infographic


· Choline is a crucial nutrient for healthy fetal development and the function of your brain, nervous system, mitochondria and cardiovascular system. It also plays a role in metabolism and DNA synthesis

· According to recent research, eggs, which are rich in choline, have anti-inflammatory activity and can be particularly useful in those with insulin resistance and/or metabolic syndrome

· A small amount of choline is produced by your liver. The rest must be supplied through your diet. The recommended adequate intake for choline is about 550 milligrams a day, but many get nowhere near this amount. Some estimates suggest 90% of the U.S. population is deficient in choline

· Studies have linked higher choline intake to a range of benefits, including a decreased risk for heart disease, a 24% decreased risk for breast cancer, and the prevention of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)

· NAFLD is the most common form of liver disease in the U.S., and prevalence has skyrocketed among children in recent years. Choline deficiency may be driving factor in this trend because if you don’t have enough choline, any dietary fat, and any food the liver can turn into fat, such as refined sugar and ethanol (alcohol), will promote the accumulation of liver fat
