Lecithin Mega PC-35 120 softgels - phosphatidylcholine from lecithin | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas Mega PC-35 contains soybean lecithin, concentrated to the level of 35% PC (phosphatidylcholine).
Phosphatidylcholine (lecithin) is an excellent source of choline, a B vitamin. Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is a main component of cell membranes and is critical for brain and liver function. In the brain, PC is the precursor to acetylcholine, an important neuro-transmitter involved in cognition and motor coordination. In digestion, PC is part of the bile complex that emulsifies fats to facilitate the absorption of fats and fat-soluble nutrients.

Are eggs good or bad for diabetes?
Outside COVID-19 very little health news catches the attention of newspapers, unless it is something out of the ordinary.
One such news item was the result from an observational study among Chinese citizens of whom it was reported how those eating more eggs had a higher risk of diabetes 2.
Oh boy, here we go again was my first thought. First eggs were vilified due to their cholesterol content, and now that nonsense has been put to rest [link], they try to come up with another BS research. Yes, calling it BS.
Imagine, you are a notorious smoker and decide to give up smoking because your lungs are suffering and have developed COPD. Yet, it is too late and a lung tumour has been detected. Guess what? The clickbait headlines would go like "people that give up smoking, will develop lung cancer!".
That's how it works! Time and again we have to repeat: correlation is NOT the same as causation. This was an observational study, in which people were asked about their habits.
A much better research method is a clinical study in which people are meticulously followed after treatment.
Or a meta study in which several studies are lumped together and analysed.
What causes gall stones and how to get rid of them?Many people suffer from gallstones. While it's possible to have gallstones and not know it, severe cases can lead to rupturing of the gallbladder and even death. Understanding your gallbladder and naturally supporting it with the right nutrition is imperative for good health.
Six reasons why eggs are awesome superfoodsEggs are so nutritious they can be nicknamed nature's oldest superfood.
Eggs are abundant in essential vitamins and minerals as well as unique antioxidants and brain nutrients many people are lacking in their nutrition when they don't eat eggs regularly.
Here is a breakdown of the six reasons why eggs are such an awesome food choice
Phospholipids as the foundation of a healthy mindThere are many components of brain health. That is why there is such a wide range of brain supplements, which run from amino acids like acetyl-L-carnitine or herbs such as Ginkgo biloba or Bacopa monniera to fish oil and omega-3 fatty acid DHA specifically, up to to vitamin B12, and vinpocetine.
Some cognitive supplements target stress and mood.
Others power brain cells with amino acids like acetyl-L-carnitine and glutamine.
Botanicals like ginkgo biloba and vinpocetine help promote circulation in the brain.
Still other cognitive supplements like curcumin or green tea address oxidation and inflammation.
Obviously, the brain’s structural health is key to such functions as memory and cognition, including mental energy, focus, and concentration. Maintaining structural integrity includes keeping brain cells healthy: ensuring cell walls remain fluid so that they can effectively regulate nutrients coming in and waste going out, and supporting signal-transmitting chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters.
Lipids and more specifically phospholipids, are especially crucial to the health of both cell membranes and neurotransmitters.
Uridine for a healthy brain and liverUridine supports formation of brain synapses and neuronal membranes
Uridine is a nucleotide that acts as a precursor of brain synapses and membrane phospholipids in conjunction with the omega-3 fatty acid docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and choline sources. It may enhance some brain cholinergic functions.
Uridine also supports the health and function of liver mitochondria.
