Activity Steps


Activity Number: 144239, Level 2

Choline is an essential nutrient that the human body produces only in small amounts. Thus, exogenous sources must be consumed to meet daily requirements. Scientific knowledge has increased significantly since the initial daily requirements were established in the late 90s as well as since the 2009 Choline Science summit. The authors summarize the findings from the 2018 Choline Science Summit, held in February 2018.
