CHOLODIN Product Information
CHOLODIN Not New, But Proven Since 1982.
CHOLODIN has been recommended by veterinarians for age-related problems.
A natural aid in managing the aging process in canines.
Contains amino acids, vitamins and trace minerals (including zinc and selenium).
New research by Dr. Shawn Messonnier, author of the award-winning book The Natural
Health Bible for Dogs and Cats (Prima, 2001) shows that supplementation with B-vitamins,
choline, and lecithin can reverse signs of cognitive disorder and may actually prevent the
condition in some older dogs. In his study, using MVP's choline supplement, CHOLODIN,
Dr. Messonnier showed that 77% of the dogs with cognitive disorder improved after receiving
this product. Unlike another drug therapy that was recently approved for treating cognitive
disorder, choline supplementation is safe, inexpensive and very effective in most pets. Dr.
Messonnier suggests trying CHOLODIN for a three-week to four-week trial period. If it works,
you can avoid more expensive drug therapy usually prescribed for this common condition.
Prior to the introduction of CHOLODIN in the veterinary market, numerous case studies were
conducted to determine the benefit of dietary supplementation with the product.
Three representative cases of these studies were:
Fourteen-year old castrated poodle weighing 12 pounds. This dog was suffering from chronic
heart failure, lethargy and decreased mental activity. The cardiac problem had been controlled
adequately with digoxin. The owner reported a marked improvement in attitude and activity after
three weeks of treatment with CHOLODIN. Neither the clinician not the owners noted any change
in the the cardiac problem. The dosage was one tablet S.I.D.
Thirteen-year old castrated, domestic short-hair cat weighing seven pounds. Inappropriate urination
was the complaint; this occured near the litter box or in areas of the house. The problem ceased after
three weeks of treatment and did no recur until the supply of tablets were exhausted. After two weeks
without medication, the cat began urinating outside the litter box. After treatment was reinstituted, the
problem ceased. The dosage was one-half tablet S.I.D.
Eighteen-year old castrated poodle weighing 14 pounds. The owner reported increased sleep time,
poor coat and reduced mental activity. After treatment began, the dog's attitude improved greatly, and
it became more active and aware of its surroundings. The coat was slightly improved. The dosage was
one tablet S.I.D.

Known metabolic functions of some of the components present in CHOLODIN.
Dietary factor in preventing fatty liver syndrome
Methyl (CH3) donor for synthesis of many important biological and metabolic compounds.
Precursor of acetylcholine
Component of phosphatidylcholine, a major component of the plasma membrane of mammalian cells
Comprises 10% to 50% of plasma membrane of all mammalian cells
Metabolism yields choline for acetylcholine formation
Component of important receptors on cell membrane
Major methyl donor in many biochemical reactions, including synthesis of choline and epinephrine
Important in the inactivation of the neurotransmitters serotonin and the catecholamins
A methionine deficiency interferes with the growth process
Physiological role resembles choline
Present as phosphatidylinositol - a phospholipid of cell membranes and plasma lipoproteins
Important in normal DNA replication
Deficiency results in irreversible damage to the nervous system, including progressive swelling of
myelinated neurons, demyelination and cell death in the spinal column and cerebral cortex.
Essential in two major enzymes in carbohydrate metabolism
Also has a unique role in the function of all excitable cell membranes
Functions directly as one of two major enzymes in carbohydrate metabolism
Essential coenzyme in metabolic transformations of amino acids
Deficiency results in abnormalities of the skin, nervous system and erythopoiesis
Seizures due to deficiency may be due to the lowering of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA)
Essential coenzyme in protein metabolism
Deficiency results is abnormalities of skin, nervous system and intestinal tract
Coenzyme A us the physiologically active form of pantothenol
Essential in the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats
CHOLODIN also contains Selenium, Vitamin E and Zinc.
