“…As a methyl-group donor, choline influences protein homeostasis by increasing synthesis and reducing breakdown [36]. However, in the present study, the inclusion of RPC in diets with different ME levels did not affect variables of protein metabolism, including TP, ALB, globulin, and creatinine, as observed by Rodriguez-Guerrero et al [35] and Leal et al [45]. A recent meta-analysis study reported that BioCholine doses over 8 g/d increased blood ALB, TP, and globulin and decreased serum urea-N [44].…”

“…The globulin values were inconsistent. Some experiments reported increases [24,45], while others reported reductions [40]. The concentration of serum urea-N reflects the efficiency of protein synthesis and the rate of urea recycling and is often used to assess the nutritional status of livestock.…”

“…Nunes et al [46] also evaluated ruminal fermentation in dairy cows fed increasing levels of BioCholine (0, 7, 14, and 21 g/d) and did not observe differences in ruminal VFA concentration and molar proportions, NH 3 -N, nitrogen balance, and digestibility (DM, crude protein, NDF, and ether extract); however, ruminal pH and OM digestion showed a quadratic reduction (p < 0.10), with the lowest values at 7 g/d, which coincided with the quadratic response in milk production (p < 0.05). The statistical differences observed by Leal et al [43] in butyrate and propionate have little impact on fermentation efficiency since a minimal CO 2 reduction (1.45% of the control) and a marginal methane increase (2.67%) are expected when including a polyherbal. The indicator of microbial activity (methylene blue test) showed a significant boost with herbal supplementation (24.1 and 50.2% for doses 4 and 8 g/d) [43].…”

“…The reason for this low pH in the 2.5 g/kg supplement group is not clear. In a recent study by Leal et al ( 35 ) supplementing lambs with biocholine powder had no effects on rumen pH either. However, we used RPC as a source of choline, whereas biocholine was used in the study of Leal et al ( 35 ).…”
