Phosphatidylcholine Additional Information

Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a phospholipid (two fatty acids joined to a phosphate group by glycerol) that contains a choline attachment. The two fatty acids are hydrophobic (water repellant) tails while the phosphate is a hydrophilic (attracts water) head. PC plays a role in every cell in the human body as it is part of the cell membrane. (1) The inner layer of the cell membrane is Phosphatidylserine, but the outer layer consists of PC.

While some PC is synthesized in your body, it is generally not in sufficient quantities, especially as we age. (4) PC can be found in food sources such as egg yolks, liver, soybeans, or beef; the same food sources for choline since PC is the most common sources of choline in foods. (2) However even with these food sources, most individuals on a western diet are choline deficient.

An increase in choline levels is one of the popular nootropic benefits of PC, along with memory enhancement, and neuron health. (5,6) PC has grown in popularity for supplementation for its ability to improve liver health as low levels of PC has been shown to cause liver damage. (7)
