Cholodin Choline helps combat these clinical signs of aging:
Lethargy and reduced awareness of surroundings
Poor coat; excessive shedding or thin, dry coat
Chronic constipation or fecal incontinence
Poor appetite; animal eats too little to maintain an adequate body weight
Poor mental acuity
Cholodin contains sources of choline and phosphatidylcholine, two of the most common phospholipids. When present in sufficient dietary quantities, these components act as neurotransmitter precursors, which are chemicals manufactured and released by nerve cells that initiate the sending of "messages" from those cells.
Choline has four major functions:
Significant dietary factor in preventing fatty liver syndrome in diabetic dogs
Can 'donate' methyl groups (CH3) needed to synthesize other metabolic compounds
Necessary for acetylcholine formation
Component of the phospolipid, lecithin along with being a constituent of plasmalogens, which are abundant in mitochondria and sphingomyelin, bound particularly in the brain.
Phosphatidylcholine (from soy lecithin), choline (as chloride), dl-methionine, inositol, zinc (as oxide), niacinamide, vitamin E, thiamine (mononitrate), riboflavin, pyridoxine (HCl), selenium (sodium selenite), vitamin B12 (cobalamin concentrate), and dexpanthenol. Formulated with a flavor base.
Dosage and Administration

Cats and Small Dogs
Tablet Form: 1/2-1 tablet
Powder Form: 1/4-1/2 teaspoonful

The tablets may be fed by hand or crumbled and mixed with food.
The powder may be mixed with food.

Side Effects: Infrequently, animals on a choline loading regime will show signs of increased neurological activity such as hyperactivity, social agitation, muscular twitching, etc. If these signs are seen, cessation of tablet or powder administration will quickly result in the disappearance of these signs. After a period of three or four days, the animal may be started again on the same dosage, usually with no adverse reaction.
