    What is Essential PC Lipids (EPL)?

    Essential PC Lipids is 40 percent purified phosphatidylcholine (PC). It is an excellent source of the active ingredient PC. It is a PC complex containing other phospholipids and highly unsaturated fatty acids.

    Essential PC Lipid Profile:

    • Phosphatidylcholine 40%
    • Phosphatidylethanolamine 16%
    • Phosphatidylinositol 11%
    • Phosphatidyleserine 1%
    • Phytoglycolipids 13%
    • Other Phosphatides, lipids 14%

    The primary active ingredient PC at 40% is considered the major and most important phospholipid responsible for influences in membrane dependent cellular functions, fluidity, regeneration and repair, among others.

    Essential PC Lipids can provide a significant amount of cell membrane building PC. Nutrasal's PC Lipids are more highly purified than other commodity brands of triple strength lecithin; the most commonly used source of marketable phosphatidylcholine.

    PC - An essential building block for life

    Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is vital cell-exchange nourishment to help keep membranes in shape. PC is the essential phospholipid (fatty acid) comprising the double-layer of the cells hydrophobic (water-repellent) layer.

    The cell membrane is comprised of a hydrophobic double-layer of cells, surrounded by a hydrophilic (water-friendly) layer on top and bottom. This is called a phospholipid bi-layer, making the cell generally impermeable to water-soluble molecules, except in select receptor areas of the membrane.

    As it relates to efficacy, the higher the PC content the better. More active PC means there are fewer minor phospholipids present to compete for absorption, and this directly enhances the bio-availability of Essential PC where it counts at the cell membrane!

    PC is most notably associated with improvements in cell membrane repair and regeneration, membrane metabolism, mitochondria function, liver function, neurological process, and mental performance, lipid metabolism and fat embolism, dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis, kidney function, and gastrointestinal inflammation.

    Essential PC Lipids are Vital Building Block for Wellness

    Like bricks in a wall, cell membranes act as barriers to protect each cell and organelle in the human body, maintaining cellular structure, function, and co-operation. Without membranes, cells, tissues, and organs cannot be formed, and life on earth would not be possible. Unfortunately, unhealthy choices (i.e., bad fats, processed sugar products, amino acid deficiencies, dehydration) essentially starves cell membranes and they once pliable and permeable building blocks become as stiff and impenetrable as real bricks. When cells are no longer able do their job of exchanging nutrients, transferring oxygen, and eliminating waste, health and well-being is replaced with disease.

    To help keep membranes in shape, phosphatidylcholine (PC) is vital cell-exchange nourishment. PC is the key phospholipid (fatty acid) comprising the double-layer of the cell's hydrophobic (water-repellent) layer. The cell membrane is comprised of a hydrophobic double-layer of cells, surrounded by a hydrophilic (water-friendly) layer on top and bottom. This is called a phospholipid bi-layer, making the cell generally impermeable to water-soluble molecules, except in select receptor areas of the membrane.

    The primary active ingredient of PC is 1,2 dilinoleoylphosphatidylcholine, or DLPC, and it's the predominant and most essential phospholipid to enhance membrane function. It is estimated that the human liver alone consists of 300 billion hepatocytes (liver cells), with a total cellular and sub-cellular surface area equal to approximately 355,000 square feet. As prominent and essential a part as PC plays in human life, it is surprisingly vulnerable. Therefore, it is critical to supplement with PC in order to form, proliferate, and regenerate cell membranes as well as to enhance membrane-dependent metabolism.

    What makes Phosphatidylcholine?

    Over 1,000 experimental and clinical investigations clearly demonstrate that PC and most importantly DLPC significantly improve membrane-dependent functions (i.e., enzyme activities) and are indispensable building blocks for life and total wellness.

    Common Areas of Application

    The Liver

    The liver is the key biochemical factory in our body, responsible for most of the synthesis, metabolism, excretion, and detoxification necessary to live. Chronic damage to the hepatocytes leads to the formation of fibrotic (thickened or fibrous) tissue, which can eventually lead to cirrhosis (liver disease). PC's cell protective effect has been corroborated in at least 140 studies, with chemical substance, medication, alcohol, and radiation (all known to play a role in causing liver disease) overload being some of the cases examined. More than 200 trials have been performed, showing PC supplementation helped accelerate improvement or normalization of subjective symptoms, improve cell health, and shortened a hospital stay.

    The Blood Vessels

    PC positively influences various biochemical pathways related to atherosclerosis, such as lipid peroxidation and lipoprotein alterations. Other results include improved cholesterol, triglyceride, and LDL-to-HDL ratios, and a reduction in atherosclerotic plaque formation. Excessive blood clotting is also reduced, and blood flow properties and microcirculation are improved.


    It is well known that low choline levels, an unsaturated fatty acid ( avocado, nuts, olive oil, etc.) deficiency and increased rigidity of neuronal membranes may influence metabolic processes and nerve function, leading to memory loss and concentration disturbances. It's been shown that upon long-term PC use aids the brain with such problems.


    Although PC does not directly influence sugar levels, it protects pancreatic beta-cells against oxidative stress, acts as an anti-fibrogenic agent, helps treat metabolic syndrome by improving lipid levels through delaying and inhibiting diabetes-associated vascular processes, and improves clinical symptoms, such as myocardial infarction.

    Gastrointestinal Tract

    Scientific research has been able to determine that PC has an affinity for the gastric and intestinal mucosa, which likely has a therapeutic effect on those tissues. It is interesting to see that the positive influence of the polyunsaturated PC on local biochemical mediators, lipid peroxidation, and collagen deposition is extended to the gastrointestinal tract. Studies show that PC helps protect the gastrointestinal mucosa against stress ulcer formation, NSAID-induced inflammation, and colitis.

    Skin and Aging

    Skin and other membranes change composition during the aging process, as more cholesterol and less PC with polyunsaturated fatty acids (i.e., soybeans) are incorporated into the membranes. They frequently become more rigid, partly recognized as wrinkles. PC increases membrane flexibility, encouraging cells to become more active again.
