Phosphatidylcholine, a choline analog in eggs and meat, protects against dementia


2 days ago we blogged about an animal research study in which supplements with choline secured mice against Alzheimer’s. According to an epidemiological research study that Finnish epidemiologists released in the American Journal of Scientific Nutrition, phosphatidylcholine, a kind of choline in eggs and meat, has the exact same impact in people.

Research Study
The scientists followed 2497 Finnish males for roughly 22 years. In 1984-1989, when the research study started, the males were 42-60 years of ages. When the research study ended, medical professionals had actually identified dementia in 337 males.

The typical research study individual taken in 431 milligrams of choline daily. 188 milligrams of this substance remained in the type of phosphatidylcholine.

Dairy, meat and eggs offered 27, 24 and 18 percent of the choline respectively. Eggs and meat were the primary sources of phosphatidylcholine, and offered 39 and 37 percent of the phosphatidylcholine in the diet plan, respectively.

Outcomes
There was no association in between the consumption of choline and the danger of dementia. Alternatively, phosphatidylcholine consumption was connected with dementia: the group with the greatest phosphatidylcholine consumption was 28 percent less most likely to establish dementia than the males with the most affordable consumption.

4 years after the research study started, the scientists determined the cognitive capability of 482 research study individuals.

On the spoken fluency test, in which individuals need to call as numerous words as possible in a particular classification in a brief amount of time, and the path making test, in which test subjects need to link a variety of points in a sensible way in the quickest time possible, the males who took in reasonably much phosphatidylcholine scored much better than the males with reasonably low phosphatidylcholine consumption.

Conclusion
“Higher phosphatidylcholine intake was associated with lower risk of incident dementia and better cognitive performance in men in eastern Finland”, sum up the scientists.

“However, this is just one observational study, and we need further research before any definitive conclusions can be drawn”, very first author Maija Ylilauri includes a news release. [sciencedaily.com August 6, 2019]
