Product Information

Phosphatidylcholine is a primary phospholipid in cell membranes. A source of choline and a major component of liver cell membranes, phosphatidylcholine has been shown in numerous studies to protect liver cells from damage from a variety of toxins, such as ethanol, carbon tetrachloride, trichloroethylene (used in dry cleaning and as a degreasing solvent), mushroom toxins, and others.* Phosphatidylcholine provides significant protection for the liver, probably because good liver health requires substantial replacement of cell membranes.* The findings from eight double-blind trials and numerous other reports studying phosphatidylcholine indicate consistently significant benefit, including faster rebuilding of liver tissue and accelerated restoration of subjects' overall well-being.*

In addition to cell membranes, phosphatidylcholine is an important component of circulating lipids in the bloodstream.* It is also a major constituent of bile, necessary for metabolizing fats.* Phosphatidylcholine has the potential to decrease absorption of dietary cholesterol, which helps maintain already normal levels of cholesterol by improving its metabolism and subsequent excretion from the body.*
