What is Phosphatidylcholine?

Several customers have asked me what is PPC? Every cell in your body is contained in a lipid matrix, called a phospholipid; sort of like a skin for the cell, keeping the insides in and the outsides out. Therefore, the integrity of every cell in your body relies on fat. PPC or phosphatidylcholine is the most prominent phospholipid and the major fat of your cell membranes and blood proteins.

PPC is also an essential nutrient and precursor to acetylcholine -- a neurotransmitter in the autonomic nervous system that is used in a number of cognitive processes, like activating muscles or playing an important role in arousal, attention, memory, and motivation.

Phosphatidylcholine actually makes up a large part of the volume of vital brain cells and is incorporated into all of your neurons. So, when choline levels are low in the blood, the body will cannibalize phosphatidylcholine from the cell walls in order to make acetylcholine.

What Are Phosphatidylcholine Benefits For Brain Health?

• Boosts your memory,
• Enhances intellectual skills,
• Improves the health of your brain
• Increases concentration.

Although Phosphatidylcholine is a fat contained in eggs, soybeans, mustard, sunflower, and other foods, most people do not get enough of this vital nutrient in their diet.

A recent study revealed that lipid abnormalities within the brain and blood can lead to a decrease in cognitive function over time and may contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s and may even factor in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, anxiety, manic-depressive disorders, and a movement disorder called tardive dyskinesia.

But wait, there’s more! PPC inhibits pro-inflammatory substances and is beneficial for those suffering from ulcerative colitis.
