PERQUE Choline Citrate is essential for people who have a block in the primary calcium-magnesium ATPase uptake system, such as individuals with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia. The calcium-magnesium ATPase uptake system is the pathway that creates energy and takes magnesium into cells. The caveat is that the pathway requires adequate magnesium to work efficiently. When stress or illness compromises the immune system, and when diet, toxins, or immune reactions cause excess cellular acidity (metabolic acidosis), magnesium uptake cannot take place, and this important pathway is impaired. Bypassing the energy pathway, PERQUE Choline Citrate and magnesium together create a neutral charge to carry magnesium effortlessly through the cell membrane.*
PERQUE Choline Citrate is essential for people who take magnesium but still show symptoms of magnesium deficiency. Cramps, muscle twitches, and spasms that persist even when magnesium is supplied indicate uptake impairment. PERQUE Choline Citrate is specifically designed to facilitate magnesium uptake for everyone.*

CHOLINE CITRATE FOR BODY AND MIND
In a recent study, researchers examined random, placebo controlled trials of choline deficiency in cognitive disorders. The reviewers found that choline had significant beneficial effects on memory function and behavior. In another study, researchers found that choline supplementation improved subjects' memory, especially in Alzheimer's patients.*
Choline helps the body as well as the mind. Studies show that in trained athletes, physical exertion can deplete choline stores by as much as 40%. In one such study, researchers concluded that, "Thus, the reductions in plasma choline associated with strenuous exercise may reduce acetylcholine release, and could thereby affect endurance or performance."*
