what is Acetylcholine and how it affect your gym performance?

Acetylcholine is one of the most abundant neurotransmitters(a chemical messenger) in the human body and plays an important role in brain and muscle function like memory formation, thinking and learning process and muscular contraction. It is found in both the central nervous system (CNS which consists of nerves in brain and spinal cord) and the peripheral nervous system (PNS which consists of nerves outside of brain and spinal cord) and is considered main neurotransmitter of the parasympathetic nervous system(rest and digest or anabolic phase).that is why Severe depletion of acetylcholine is associated with multiple motor side-effects, such as tremors and problems with coordination and even Alzheimer’s disease.
Acetylcholine is present in all motor neurons. it stimulates muscles to contract. Whether voluntary or involuntary, From the movements of the stomach and heart to the blink of an eyelash, every type of physical movements involves this neurotransmitter.
An observational study in norway done by Haukeland University in 2009 with over 5,900 participants found that low blood levels of choline were connected to a higher risk of anxiety. However, it didn’t find a link between blood choline levels and depression

Acetylcholine is a chemical compound made up of acetic acid and choline.

Choline is an essential nutrient present in soy, nuts and seeds, egg yolks, cruciferous vegetables, fish, chicken and meat, and is classified within the B-complex group of vitamins. By increasing intake of choline, you can improve your Acetylcholine deficiency if present. it supports various bodily functions, including cellular growth and metabolism. The body makes some choline, but the majority comes from dietary sources.

it is used by the body to produce fats that make up cellular membranes, synthesize DNA(along with other nutrients such as folate and vitamin B-12), regulate automatic bodily functions(like breathing and heart rate) and etc.

Choline is an essential nutrient for brain development. In one study including 2,195 participants aged 70–74, those with higher choline levels had better cognitive functioning than participants with low choline levels.

also in a study published by European Journal of Nutrition in 2008 it found association between higher dietary intakes of choline and a lower risk of ischemic stroke.

acetic acid plays an important role in the metabolism of fats and carbohydrates in the body. Acetic acid is naturally present in some unprocessed foods including fruit and is present in some foods as an additive.

Acetic acid(also known as ethanoic acid) is a chemical compound found in many products. It’s perhaps most well-known as the main component of vinegar, apart from water, and is thought to supply ingredients like apple cider vinegar with many of their health-promoting benefits.

Acetic acid gives vinegar its strong sour smell and flavor. Researchers believe this acid is responsible for apple cider vinegar’s health benefits. Cider vinegars are 5–6% acetic acid

it has also been claimed to contain potent anti-bacterial properties, this organic compound is also thought to reduce blood sugar levels, promote weight loss, alleviate inflammation and control blood pressure.

Some research suggests that acetic acid could help support weight control by aiding in weight loss. For example, a 2017 report out of Malaysia claimed that acetic acid vinegar reduced food intake and body weight in mice. Another study in European Journal of Clinical Nutrition also showed that acetic acid helped slow the emptying of the stomach, which could help keep you feeling fuller for longer to promote weight loss.

Acetylcholine also affects cellular and synaptic physiology to influence networks, resulting in change of conscious state such as sleeping to wakefulness and distraction to attention.
