The Gold Standard
In numerous clinical studies, purified polyenylphosphatidylcholine (PPC) has been shown to:

PhosChol: A Membrane Therapeutic for the Liver
According to the intensity of exposure to noxae, malnutrition, or viruses, liver damage may manifest itself as:
PPC is a superior protectant against liver damage. Irrespective of the origin, damage to liver cell membranes and to their organelles is generally present in hepatopathies. Metabolic functions of the liver cell and the activity of enzymes bound to membranes are inhibited, thus causing the clinical picture of liver disorders.
PhosChol: Heart Health
PhosChol's primary active ingredient is PPC. Clinical studies have shown that PPC can help bring the lipid profile into the normal range.
HDL particles containing PPC, transport 50% more cholesterol than native HDL particles.

PhosChol: For Diabetes
PhosChol's primary active ingredient is PPC. In clinical studies, PPC has been shown to have positive effects on plasma lipids and plasma lipoproteins. Moreover, PPC has been shown to contribute to an improved condition of blood glucose, glycosylated hemoglobin, ketone body excretion, and other diabetes-specific parameters by positively affecting the pathological mechanism of specific diabetes-associated disturbances.
As a Membrane Therapeutic, PPC has been shown to be a valuable supplement to the basic treatment of diabetics with insulin or oral anti-diabetics if controlling the diabetes does not lead to a restoration of normal lipid metabolism.
PPC has been shown to:
Indication: Diabetes-associated dyslipidemia that cannot be completely normalized by insulin or oral antidiabetics, particularly hypertriglyceridemia and hypoalpha-lipoproteinemia; diabetes-induced peripheral, coronary and cerebral circulation disturbances.
Dosage Recommendation: 1.8 to 2.7 grams orally. Once daily at meal time. Take with a little liquid if necessary.
PhosChol: Age-Related Memory Loss and Enhanced Brain Function
There is evidence that PPC is important for brain health throughout one's life.
PPC is critical for proper development of important brain areas, including the hippocampus, in fetuses and infants.
A study involving college students demonstrated that choline improved memory and cognitive skills. PhosChol provides the body with a preferred source of choline.
PPC may be especially important in advanced age because the brain of an older adult takes less choline into the brain than that of a younger adult. The decrease of PPC in the brain may play a role in developing age related memory loss, and perhaps Alzheimer's Disease.
PhosChol: Gastrointestinal Health
The surface of the stomach, known as the mucosal, protects the stomach wall from the high concentrations of acid and the enzymes present in the stomach's contents. Without this protection, the stomach wall would be digested along with the food suspension that the stomach contains.
The PPC in PhosChol
Is a natural way to protect the stomach against exogenous damaging substances like over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription pain killers, also referred to as NSAIDs
PPC is an Essential Component of the Mucosal
Phospholipids, especially PPC, are essential components of the mucosa. Disorders leading to a reduction in the PPC content, or a disruption of the PPC membrane cause pain, or in more severe forms, gastric ulcers or cancer. Disturbances are caused by the following factors: stress, alcohol, beverages that are too cold, incorrect diet, post gastrointestinal operations, and reflux of bile from the intestine into the stomach, which destroy the PPC membrane and, hence, the protective film. Some pain medication often referred to as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can also cause significant erosion. NSAIDs include many prescription pain medications and other over the counter products such as ibuprofen, naproxyn, or antirheumatics such as aspirin.
