The idea of whole body health from one supplement can seem like a far fetched dream for some. But what if you could protect your heart, liver and brain with one simple addition to your daily diet? Swanson PhosphatidylCholine can be that defence on all three fronts.
You might not have heard of Choline before, in fact, chances are you almost certainly haven't. This innocuous, water soluble essential trace nutrient is vitamin-like in appearance but is so often looked over that you'd probably walk straight past it in the street. The thing is, that you really need it. We all do.
When we begin to understand that this small but powerful mineral is responsible for the construction of every cell membrane in the human body, we begin to really see its importance. So where do we get it from?
The human body is capable of synthesising Choline in very small amounts, although in order to remain in rude health, we must also all consume a substantial amount in our everyday diets. It is telling then that, according to The 2005 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a paltry 2% of postmenopausal women were getting enough Choline in their diets.
The majority of Choline in the human body is stored in fat molecules known as phospholipids and perhaps the most common of those is PhosphatidylCholine. By binding the Choline with the phospholipid, Swanson have created the most bioavailable form of Choline on the market today. meaning that you won't have to worry about getting enough to protect your heart, liver and brain.
As a naturally occurring phospholipid molecule, PhosphatidylCholine is actually the the major lipid, or fat, of all our blood proteins and cell membranes. Which is why it is our body's major and central source of Choline.
So what does Choline really do for us? First and foremost it plays an essential role in the protection of our livers. It does that by being a crucial component of some extremely low density lipoproteins which are responsible for carrying good fats and cholesterol from our liver to other parts of the body which have use for them. Combine this with Swanson PhosphatidylCholine's ability to repair and build cell membranes in an environment where cell damage is frequent and high and you begin to see its value.
But Swanson PhosphatidylCholine is so much more than just a hepatoprotective. By working as an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant it can also deliver heart health too. But the real excitement behind Swanson PhosphatidylCholine lies in its ability to heal our minds.
Recent studies have shown impressive improvement in certain people suffering from neurological disorders. By bolstering your Choline supply you could help stave off these conditions before they manifest.
