What You Should Know
Acetylcholine is often abbreviated as ACh. This is a neurotransmitter in the nervous system of the body. Acetylcholine is not on its own a diet supplement, but rather something that might be included in one. Acetylcholine is one of the first neurotransmitters to be identified by science and was discovered back in 1914.
In the cardiovascular system it helps in the decreasing of the heart rate, contraction strength, and dilation of blood vessels. In the digestive system it helps increase the activity of digestion. It’s also important in memory, which is being researched in the cure for Alzheimer’s Disease.
There are no listed ingredients. This is a neurotransmitter. This neurotransmitter is part of a broader spectrum of things that affect weight loss in our systems.
There is no specific product that is strictly Acetylcholine. It can be part of a weight loss product. For example, when it comes to weight loss, a person might buy a product containing Lecithin. Lecithin is a lipid material that Acetylcholine is a part of. Lecithin can be found in egg yolks, soy beans, grains, wheat germ, fish, yeast and peanuts just to name a few out there. Since Acetylcholine is helpful in the cardiovascular system, the broader use of Lecithin also claims benefits to that system as well as liver and cell function, fat transportation and storage, improved memory, improved cell communication, relief of arthritis, and treatment of gallstones.
- claims to help in the cardiovascular system in relation to the heart.
- helps increase the activity of digestion.
- easily found in many supplements that support weight loss.
- since we are covering a piece of the puzzle concerning weight loss, there isn’t a large body of information that gives us specifics for acetylcholine as a weight loss neurotransmitter, only a helper in a broader spectrum of other things.
- limited understanding of acetylcholine by the average person.
- you can’t just go out and buy acetylcholine. There is no synthetic form or tablet to ingest.
Obviously, since Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter and not a producible product by a weight loss company, there really is no way to give it a thumbs up or thumbs down. As part of many weight loss supplements out there, the support and information for this transmitter is promising…as well as it’s continued research for an Alzheimer’s cure. By what we could immediately find on the web, Acetylcholine seems to have all the building blocks of something that’s definitely beneficial for our bodies in more ways that just weight loss and should be continued to research and develop ways to make it better and safer in supplementation form.
