Vitamin of B4 choline chloride 60% 2309903100
Choline belongs to the B vitamins (vitamin B4). It is used as an important feed additive for animals. Choline is an integral part of lecithin and sphingomyelin phospholipids, which are part of the structure of cell membranes. As one of the sources of methyl groups, choline promotes the conversion of amino acids.
Choline functions in a living organism:
- forms acetylcholine, which provides conduction of impulses through the nervous system;
- regulates fat metabolism in the liver (has a so-called lipotropic effect);
- ensures the preservation of cell structure, as well as for the normal maturation of the cartilage matrix of the bone.
Choline deficiency in a living organism leads to metabolic disorders, behavioral disorders, loss of appetite and growth retardation. In breeding birds, egg production decreases and hatchability decreases.
According to INRA studies, the economic effect of the use of Choline chloride has been proven. With the addition of choline chloride at a concentration of 800 mg / kg, 1,660 kg of feed is required per 1000 kg of gain. Whereas without it - 1,710 kg of feed. Thus, we conclude that the addition of 1.19 kg of choline chloride saves 50 kg of feed per 1 ton of live weight gain.
