Can you get enough choline from food and dietary sources ?

Most people get anywhere from 300 to 1,000 milligrams of choline each day from their diet, which seems to be enough to prevent a deficiency. If you are taking nicotinic acid (a form of niacin) as a treatment, you may need choline supplements, since high levels of niacin can deplete the choline in your system.

Choline supplements come in capsules or tablets. There’s also a supplement called DMAE that provides the same benefits as choline, but is said to deliver those benefits to your brain more quickly.
