Phosphatidylcholine (PC) IV Therapy
Often referred to as the “Miracle Molecule”, Phosphatidylcholine (PC for short) is an integral component of every cell and is the most abundant phospholipid in the human body. Every cell in our body is encased in a double layer of fat or phospholipids. Phosphatidylcholine is an important phospholipid that is very prevalent in young and healthy cell membranes. When we age or become ill, our cell membranes become damaged by toxins, heavy metals, pesticides, smoking, and even stress. As we get older, our body is unable to produce enough PC to repair this damage and keep our cells healthy and functioning optimally. When PC decreases, toxins actually get trapped within these fatty cell membranes.
Because our brain is 60% fatty tissue, our brain cells are particularly susceptible to trapping toxins when Phosphatidylcholine is not prevalent. These toxins can impact cell membrane and mitochondrial function (cells energy production) as well as cellular communication. Phosphatidylcholine also synthesizes an important brain chemical called acetylcholine. This chemical is pivotal for memory and other brain functions. Much recent research has been looking at PC therapy for conditions and diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and even behavioural problems in children.
It is a very promising area of research in anti-aging medicine because many studies have found Phosphatidylcholine supplements can improve learning, aid your memory, and even help to promote healthy skin elasticity. That’s right…brains AND beauty.
PC IVs act more as an overhaul of your cells. Intense intravenous PC therapy might be more appropriate with some people with chronic disease or metal toxicity. Chronic illness is linked to poor cell membrane health. By replenishing your cell membranes with healthy phospholipids, your cellular function will increase and toxic compounds can be transported from your body, which promotes intestinal, liver and skin health, improves memory, heightens energy levels/reduces fatigue and boosts brain function.
