Optimal PC Softgels by Seeking Health provides 800 mg of phospholipids from non-GMO sunflower oil (containing about 15% (w/w) phosphatidylcholine) without the common use of soy. Although phospholipids can be found in a wide variety of foods such as meat, eggs, and soy, some individuals including vegans and vegetarians may benefit from supplementation. It may also become more difficult for choline to pass through the blood brain barrier with age.*
Phosphatidylcholine (PC) may help provide the building blocks of healthy cell membranes which may help maintain healthy brain function. PC is a precursor to acetylcholine which is a major neurotransmitter in both the brain and the peripheral nervous system. It is also important for cardiovascular support through maintenance of lipid metabolism. PC may help support healthy liver function by aiding in maintaining healthy liver cells and normal processing of fat and cholesterol in the liver. This may help maintain the normal detoxifying capacity of the liver. PC may help replenish choline in the blood after intense exercise, supporting healthy energy levels and normal muscle recovery.*
Optimal PC also contains two other types of phospholipids, phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylinositol. Phosphatidylethanolamine is a key building block of cell membrane bilayers. It can be transformed into PC, but this phospholipid may also play a role in the assembly of membrane proteins. It may help support normal orientation of enzymes in the inner membrane. Phosphatidylinositol is present in all tissues and cell types, especially brain tissue. Derivatives of this phospholipid serve as messenger molecules with the nervous system.*
For a higher dose version of this supplement in a liquid format, consider our Optimal PC Liquid. If you are looking for phosphatidylserine, a compound derived from phospholipids in sunflower lecithin, consider our Phosphatidyl Serine.

I originally purchased the Seeking Health PC in oil form which can be dispensed like honey from a bottle. This is a great option for those needing to avoid glycerin. It was rather messy however. I stored mine in the fridge, upside down in a mug to catch drips. I needed to remember to take it each day in addition to the supplements in my organizer. The capsules are a wonderful option for travel, less mess and more convenience. Definitely worth the difference in cost per serving.
I have been using this product for a couple of years, and new it was working. However, when I recently ran out and didn't take any for a couple of months I soon realized how effective it is. Without this product, I tend to wake up after about 4 hours and cannot fall back asleep for a couple of hours, and no one needs that.
You would think Seeking Health would offer Sunflower lecithin products that where naturally extracted without the use of chemicals. Go figure they should know by now all of us who have MTHFR mutations have difficulty detoxing chemicals even residue amounts from cheap processing.
Giving you 5 stars for fooling your clients.
High quality and free of most allergens.
The most amazing Choline supplement. Can’t say enough good things. Just love this 💗
This has helped protect my gut where I got burning bile diarrhea. It did not stop the diarrhea but made it bearable without burning my intestines. Also has helped with thinning my bile where I don’t feel any pressure in my liver.
