    Does piracetam supplementation increase the need for choline?

    I cannot eat eggs (including the yolk) and dairy products, and my main source of choline is lots of red meat. Would it be o.k. to take piracetam in this case?

    Incomprehensive/ble Notes On Choline

    ..and why avoiding eggs due to a couple grams of PUFAs might not be a good idea. They're not the only source, but are by far the best since livers aren't ideal for regular consumption.
