If methylation is not working, choline will be used to create methyl groups, when you want it to be used in the choline pathways. It's about preserving choline for its intended use, and, sometimes, providing the end product, instead of relying on the choline to be converted.
I have an old post on knowing what part of your choline pathway is whacked. For example, I have problems in the CHDH genes that convert choline, so instead of more choline, I supplement directly with 1000mg of TMG per day. Supplementing alpha-GPC might also work if you feel you have acetylcholine issues. Some folks have good luck with phosphatidylcholine, which is where a majority of your choline goes and/or creatine, which is another way to spare methyl groups.
Anyway, here's the post link. Hope it might give you some ideas of how to tackle this without a lot more protein or eggs.

My research was not vigorous, I went with a brand I trust and have had very good luck with. I'd feel more comfortable if you did your own research to settle on a supplement.
Hi PeterM, I just happened to have come across a reference to choline bitartate in another thread, which I copied below. You might check out that thread which has a lot of different ideas regarding choline supplementation. You can find the thread easily by going to the search function (magnifying glass to the left of your user name) and typing in TMAO.PeterM wrote:I simply had a trace memory that choline bitartate was somewhat frowned upon from when I earlier looked into this complex issue, and as you are a discriminating person I was curious if the bitartate form was even a viable option. Always appreciate your input. Thanks.
