Research Confirms Choline’s Role in Higher Blood-clotting Risk
Cleveland Clinic study suggests choline may lead to the formation of a gut bacteria byproduct that may contribute to stroke and heart attack risk.
Choline occurs naturally in egg yolks, red meat and processed meat, and can be given as a supplement. Choline is a nutrient that helps preserve liver health and a healthy metabolism, though too much can be dangerous. When digesting choline, your gut bacteria produces increased amounts of TMAO. High TMAO levels in your bloodstream raise your risk of blood-clot formation.
