Phosphatidylcholine from a soy phosphatide complex containing phosphatidylcholine and other naturally occurring components, such as cephalin (phosphatidylethanolamine), phosphatidylinositol (phosphoinositides), and related phosphorus-containing lipids.
Phosphatidylcholine is a primary phospholipid in cell membranes. A source of choline and a major component of liver cell membranes, phosphatidylcholine has been shown in numerous studies to protect liver cells from damage from a variety of toxins, such as ethanol, carbon tetrachloride, trichloroethylene (used in dry cleaning and as a degreasing solvent), mushroom toxins, and others. Phosphatidylcholine provides significant protection for the liver, probably because good liver health requires substantial replacement of cell membranes.* The findings from eight double-blind trials and numerous other reports studying phosphatidylcholine indicate consistently significant benefit, including faster rebuilding of liver tissue and accelerated restoration of subjects' overall well-being.
In addition to cell membranes, phosphatidylcholine is an important component of circulating lipids in the bloodstream. It is also a major constituent of bile, necessary for metabolizingfats. Phosphatidylcholine has the potential to decrease absorption of dietary cholesterol, which helps maintain already normal levels of cholesterol by improving its metabolism and subsequent excretion from the body.

This is a good price for a great product - the purest version of PC I've found. My husband had seriously elevated liver enzymes and milk thistle alone didn't reduce them much. Adding this made all the difference.

Noticed an improvement with memory and cognition after taking this for a couple weeks. I will be buying this again.
Too early to tell

Can't really tell just yet. I did notice a headache on the day I took it but that could have been unrelated.

These softgels are too big for me to swallow. If I open the softgel, it has terrible taste and like the glue. But anyhow it's healthy if one can swallow them. Next time I try the sunflower lecithin, i hope that tastes better.
Finally Choline without porc or bovine gelatin!

I was looking for a choline without bovine or porc gelatin for a long time and I finally found this one by Thorne Research. After taking it for 2 weeks I have noticed an improvement in mental alertness, without gitters. It is a good product like all other by Thorne Research (one of my fav companies for purity and honesty).
