    Ok, so to be clear... we all understand that:
    - Phosphatidylcholine, in some people, can result in the formation of trimethylamine N-oxide (aka TMAO).
    -> TMAO is an endotoxin that forms when certain gut microbes (I'm not sure which strains) consume foods containing the choline group of the PC lipid.
    -> Presence of TMAO is highly correlated to heart disease.
    -> One way to know if gut microbiota are forming this TMAO, is if one develops a fishy smell when consuming PC.
    -> Rats have reported a fishy smell when using MitoLipin, a PC supplement
    -> The fishy smell in MitoLipin is from the Vitamin E which is used as a solvent
    -> MitoLipin does not produce TMAO in those who have the aforementioned gut microbes
    = MitoLipin does not contribute to the formation of TMAO, and is therefore safe for rats who have heart disease.

    Am I correct in this logic?

    is the same TMAO issue correct for choline bitatrate or other non fat based forms of choline?

    @haidut any chance of getting MitoLipin in a non-vitamin E base?

    It still used vitamin E. We tried a few different formulations but it always solidified unless there is a significant percentage of vitamin E in it. So, until we find another solvent it looks like it will be using vitamin E.

    I haven't researched other types of choline in depth yet, but this article might be useful to you in directing your own research (warning; It is actually an add, but I am in not way endorsing the product)...
    Choline Citrate is Safe… Here’s what you need to know

    Personally, I'm going with the MitoLipin based on my above logic, I'm skipping choline supps for now, just sticking with 2 eggs per day and some dessicated liver.

    Thanks for this. Do you believe the TMAO thing, sounds like it would be a great marketing ploy. Create a problem, offer a solution.....

    But maybe it is a real issue. I'll look into it. Thanks

    What feeling did you get from alpha GPC?

    hello haidut, I just bought it and I'm very excited to try it. I'm planning to take it topically. my bottle says the serving size is 2ml (40 drops). what would be the equivalent topical dosage, since it has better absorption that way?

    Too much TMAO produced in the body is a real problem. It happens when PC and it's metabolites are not digested by gut bacteria properly.
    There is a one 'Dr. Hazen' who is trying to make a profit off this by creating a supplement to prevent this from happening. I would keep that in mind when reading anything published by him. (Not saying all his research is invalid, just something to keep in mind.)
    I too am trying to understand this entirely as it affects both my boyfriend and myself. Dr. Chris Masterjohn explains a lot about it on his blog and educational series, a good place to start researching IMO.

    I just came across these studies as well, I referenced on this post...
    Methanogen Bacteria Responsible For Risk Of CVD Assoc. PC (choline, TMAO)

    Mitolipin is not a prob though; per Haidut..."However, the studies with PC (and especially saturated PC) did not show any cholinergic effects".

    (Apologies mods...I hope I didn't derail this thread!)

    Yes, I would take that topically in this dose as well but would split it into 2-3 daily doses to avoid spreading large amounts of oily substance on skin at once.

    The PC in MitoLipin should get absorbed before reaching the colon. Same with topical absorption - not much effect on colon bacteria.
