Choline Storagel[edit]

I'm trying to make a case for evolution. I'm trying to locate information on where choline is stored in the human body. According to the NIH health professional fact sheet for choline, choline is stored in the human liver. I would believe most choline in the human body is stored in the human intestines and some in the kidneys along with the liver. I'm looking for this information online, but am having difficulty finding it. I know that animal intestines are composed of a large percentage of choline. Same with other organ meats. I just need some nutrition text book or verifiable research that can be posted as a reference to show that the vitamin like substance free choline is stored in the human intestines or phosphatidylcholine choline for that matter. If you find this information, could you please add this detailed information on the choline page. Thank you! (talk) 15:32, 11 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

From the National Institutes of Health, "Free choline, phosphocholine, and glycerophosphocholine are absorbed in the small intestine, enter the portal circulation, and are stored in the liver, where they are subsequently phosphorylated and distributed throughout the body to make cell membranes". It is probably worth adding this reference to the article [1]. Psychologist Guy (talk) 20:24, 11 February 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Another source "Choline is stored in tissues either as membrane-bound phospholipids or as intracellular PC or GPC. Choline is stored in the brain as membrane-bound phospholipids, which are hydrolysed by choline acetyltransferase to provide choline for acetylcholine synthesis.
