Just when you thought that you had a handle on your nutrition, something new comes up that you need to address. Have you felt that way recently? You're not alone. The nutrition world is always changing, new studies published with findings that may change the way you think about one or more aspects of your lifestyle.
The supplement that I will be discussing today has been popular in the healthcare professional circles, and amongst the general public it is slowly gaining traction. Have you noticed that whenever a product goes viral it is suddenly impossible to find it anywhere? I have a feeling PPC will get some time in the spotlight this year, so get ahead of the trend and keep reading for some PPC FAQ’s and tips!
I’ve talked about choline, PPC for your kids, and GPC liquid. Now it’s time for the big one: PPC softgels and liquids. As you may remember from previous posts, PPC stands for polyenyl-phosphatidylcholine. PhosChol has been the leader in the pharmaceutical grade offerings of PPC for years. Quality, efficacy, and dependability - those are three words I would use to describe what Nutrasal’s PPC formulas have given to thousands of families nationwide.
This substance is usually found in items like egg yolks, soybeans, sunflower seeds, and mustard. Did you know that Theodore Nicolas Gobley, a renowned French pharmacist and chemist in the 1800’s, helped coin the term “lecithin” from the Greek word, “lekithos?” (Egg yolk). He then applied it to his studies on egg yolks and the human brain in the mid-19th century. By being a pioneer in the study of brain tissues and structures, Gobley introduced the world to the idea of phospholipids (and by extension, polyenyl-phosphatidylcholine).
The overall goals for PPC are cell membrane structure maintenance, overall membrane function, and co-operation between membranes and other organs, cells, tissues, and the body as a whole. Quite a big task, right? This is something that goes overlooked as more and more people immerse themselves into the world of optimal nutrition and health.
The ultimate question we face when starting a new supplement - do you want to swallow pills or swallow a spoonful of liquid? This part is completely up to your own personal preference and how you see yourself best applying this new formula into your lifestyle.
How much do you take in each form?
The serving size for the liquid concentrate is 5 mL (one teaspoon). For the softgels, it is 3 capsules.
Is one better than the other?
Both options contain purified pharmaceutical level PPC and are ways to support cellular membranes. The only differences between the two formulas are the way in which they are administered, and the amount of PPC in each serving. As you will see as you keep reading, the two amounts differ slightly.
What if my kids want to take it?
Check out my blog post on PPC for Kids here to read up on how the children’s version differs and why your child will love it.
Dogs can take PPC too?
Yes they can! Keep reading to see how your dog(s) can reap the PPC benefits as well. I feed my dog the PPC for Kids when I am out of the vet formula. He LOVES it!
How much PPC is in each formula’s serving?
One serving of the liquid concentrate provides 3 grams of PPC. This is equal to approximately 3000mg of PPC. For the softgels, it is 1 gram (approximately 900 mg) per capsule. The two formulas are relatively similar in this respect.
Are there any interactions with other medications?
There are no reported interactions between PPC and other medications. When in doubt, always check with your trusted doctor or healthcare professional to determine if Nutrasal’s PPC is the best option for you.
What are some other PPC options on the market right now?
Nutrasal PPC is the only qualified option for pharmaceutical level PPC on the market. They have heaps of scientific backing as well as support from professionals in the medical field. I trust them, so do thousands of families, and I recommend you check them out too.
How does PPC prevent liver damage?
Taking PPC is a great way to protect your liver against damage. Damage to liver cell membranes is generally present in many instances of liver diseases like hepatitis and liver cirrhosis. Because the functions of the liver cells are dependent on their membranes, taking PPC can strengthen the cell membranes reducing the risks of liver damage.
What about gut health?
The majority of Americans consume Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) in the form of Aspirin or Ibuprofen (Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is NOT an NSAID). Taken incorrectly and frequently, these pills can result in ulceration in your gastrointestinal area. The PPC in these two formulas is heavily involved in the stomach’s surface (or the mucosal). The stomach’s surface acts as a barrier to the acid concentrations outside of the stomach.
PPC is For Our Furry Friends Too!
How do you administer the right dosage?
Nutrasal’s recommended dosage for this formula is dependent on the weight of your dog. Whether your dog weighs 5 pounds or 150 pounds, your dog can take this PPC formula. There is a convenient dosing chart on each bottle to determine the correct dosage.
How should your pet consume it?
You can either have your dog consume it directly from the spoon or add it to their food. No more stuffing pills in cheese or wrapped in pieces of meat!
How do the benefits compare?
The ingredient in this formula is the exact same as the version that we humans take. Tested by many veterinary medicine schools, this product has been loved by many dogs (and their owners too!)
How much PPC is in each serving?
In this 8 oz. bottle, there are 48,000mg of PPC. This equals 96 500mg doses (half teaspoon), 48 1000mg doses (full teaspoon), or 32 1500mg doses (1.5 teaspoons).
Your pet has allergies/sensitivities, what are the active and inactive ingredients?
The only active ingredient in this formula is the polyenyl-phosphatidylcholine. The inactive ingredients are water, safflower oil, natural chicken flavor, malic acid, and xanthan gum. There is no wheat, gluten, corn, soy protein, yeast, dairy products, artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners, or preservatives.

Take it from me and the thousands of doctors and healthcare professionals that agree with me - Nutrasal is the best source for PPC for the whole family.

Whether you have cable or a streaming platform like Hulu, you are bound to be hit by marketing ploys from various companies.

Most people don’t know anything about the long-term effects of COVID unless it has touched them in some way. Most people are so afraid of the virus that when they get it, they are relieved to report that “it wasn’t that bad.” I can’t tell you the number of people I have talked to who tested positive with very mild symptoms that lasted less than 24 hours.

While the popular news may be focused on a viral pandemic, there are many other stealth pandemics running amuck in human health. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is rising dramatically. More than 6 million people in the United States are affiliated with Alzheimer’s disease. The death rate for this disease is higher than both breast and prostate cancer combined.
