: I heard about a new drug called Coline over this past weekend on the news. It didn't give much detail except that it's supposed to improve your memory. Has anyone else heard about it or know if it's effective against Alzheimer's?
There aren't many new articles on choline, but I've read a few articles that are anywhere from 1-5 years old and it seems that results are mixed. Some studies show marginal memory improvements in normal people and Alzheimer's sufferer's while other studies show no effect unless the pre-natal diet consisted of a lot of choline. Either way it seems the judges are still out on the issue.
