What is Essential PC
Essential PC Lipids is 40
percent purified phosphatidylcholine (PC). It is an excellent source of the
active ingredient PC. It is a PC complex containing other phospholpids and
highly unsaturated fatty acids.
Essential PC Lipid
- Phosphatidylcholine 40%
- Phosphatidyleserine 1%
- Phytoglycolipids 13%
- Other Phosphatides,
The primary active
ingredient PC at 40% is considered the major and most important phospholipid
responsible for influences in membrane dependent cellular functions, fluidity,
regeneration and repair, among others.
Essential PC Lipids can
provide a significant amount of cell membrane building PC. Our PC Lipids are
more highly purified than other commodity brands of triple strength lecithin;
the most commonly used source of marketable phosphatidylcholine.
PC - An essential
building block for life
is vital cell-exchange nourishment to help keep membranes in shape. PC is the
essential phospholipid (fatty acid) comprising the double-layer of the cells
hydrophobic (water-repellent) layer.
The cell membrane is
comprised of a hydrophobic double-layer of cells, surrounded by a hydrophilic
(water-friendly) layer on top and bottom. This is called a phospholipid
bi-layer, making the cell generally impermeable to water-soluble molecules,
except in select receptor areas of the membrane.
As it relates to
efficacy, the higher the PC content the better. More active PC means there are
fewer minor phospholipids present to compete for absorption, and this directly
enhances the bio-availability of Essential PC where it counts at the cell
PC is most notably associated with improvements in cell membrane repair and
regeneration, membrane metabolism, mitochondria function, liver function,
neurological process and mental performance, lipid metabolism and fat embolism,
dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis, kidney function, and gastrointenstinal
