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.
