What is Choline chloride?


Choline (scientific name 2-hydroxyethyl-trimethylcholine hydroxide), a kind of vitamin B. Choline can promote fat metabolism in liver and kidney; Choline is also the basis for the body to synthesize acetylcholine, which affects the transmission of nerve signals. In addition, choline is also one of the methyl sources required for methionine synthesis in vivo. Natural choline is contained in many foods, but its concentration is not enough to meet the needs of modern feed industry for rapid growth of animals. Therefore, synthetic choline should be added to feed to meet its needs. Lack of choline can lead to fatty liver, slow growth, reduced egg laying rate and increased death.


Choline chloride is an organic substance with the chemical formula c5h14clno. It is white hygroscopic crystal, tasteless and fishy. Melting point 305 ℃. 10% aqueous solution, pH 5-6, unstable in alkali solution. This product is easily soluble in water and ethanol, but insoluble in ether, petroleum ether, benzene and carbon disulfide. Low toxicity, LD50 (rat, oral) 3400 mg / kg. For the treatment of fatty liver and liver cirrhosis. It is also used as a feed additive for livestock, which can stimulate the ovaries to produce more eggs, litter, and increase the weight of livestock and fish.


Tissue culture medium, feed additive, clinically used as anti fatty liver agent.


It is used to treat fatty liver and liver cirrhosis. It is also used as a feed additive. It can stimulate the ovaries to produce more eggs, give birth, and increase the weight of livestock and fish


Choline chloride can effectively prevent and treat fat deposition and tissue degeneration in livestock and poultry organs. It can promote the absorption and synthesis of amino acids. It can enhance the physique and disease resistance of livestock and poultry, promote growth and development, and improve the egg laying rate of poultry. Dosage: 1-2g / kg.




It is an efficient nutritional supplement and fat removing agent


As a feed additive, choline chloride has the following physiological functions: it can prevent fat accumulation and tissue degeneration in liver and kidney; It can promote the recombination of amino acids; It can improve the utilization of amino acids, especially the essential amino acid methionine in vivo. In Japan, 98% of choline chloride is used as feed additives for chickens, pigs, beef cattle, fish and shrimp. Most of them are processed into powder. The preparation method of 50% powder is to add excipients with appropriate particle size in the mixer in advance, then drop choline chloride aqueous solution, mix and dry. Some commercial powders are also matched with vitamins, minerals, drugs, etc. Choline chloride is a vitamin B drug, which is used for hepatitis, liver function degradation, early liver cirrhosis, pernicious anemia and so on.


Choline chloride is also a plant photosynthesis promoter, which has an obvious effect on increasing yield. Spraying wheat and rice at booting stage can promote spikelet differentiation and produce more spikelets and grains. Spraying at grain filling stage can accelerate grain filling speed, make spikelets and grains full, and increase 1000 grain weight by 2 ~ 5g. It can also be used to increase the yield of corn, sugarcane, sweet potato, potato, radish, onion, cotton, tobacco, vegetables, grapes, mango, etc. the effect is stable under different climate and ecological environment conditions; At the initial stage of expansion, some underground crops such as root tubers were diluted with 60% water agent 10 ~ 20ml per mu (6 ~ 12g effective component), water 30 l (1500 ~ 3000 times), and sprayed for 2-3 times. The effect of expansion and yield increase was obvious; Ornamental plants such as Rhododendron, poinsettia, geranium and hibiscus regulate growth; Wheat, barley and oats are lodging resistant.

Choline chloride is very common in daily life. Choline chloride can be used to treat fatty liver and liver cirrhosis. It can also be used as a preservative for poultry concentrate to increase the production of freshwater fish and poultry. Choline chloride is widely used not only for diagnosis and treatment, but also for daily necessities. Choline chloride is a milky white and odorless thing, What effect does choline chloride have? The role of isopropyl choline titanate is described in detail below.


In fact, choline chloride was first used in animal feed and has the function of promoting laying hens, so it is also called egg enhancer; It is the most widely used choline supplement in the feed industry.

From the perspective of physiology, the human body needs choline chloride to maintain normal brain function, which can be used for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease; In terms of skin care, this ingredient is mainly used as a moisturizer. Sometimes it is used for the treatment of premenopausal women to keep the mucous membrane moist.


It plays a secondary role in the cosmetics industry and is mainly used in washing products, such as shower gel, cleanser, soap and hair loss treatment products.
