According to a group of researchers, this component would be related to a series of positive effects, ranging from DNA synthesis and regulation of gene expression to the production of a neurotransmitter known as acetylcholine.

This neurotransmitter is key to mood, memory, muscle control, and other functions of the nervous system.

Choline would also help the body eliminate harmful LDL cholesterol, as it produces a substance that breaks down cholesterol in the liver.

It should be remembered that hard-boiled eggs, in addition to choline, are also rich in proteins and vitamins, such as A, D, E, K and several others belonging to group B.
