Phosphatidylcholine IV/Push

This is a therapy used to support cell membrane health. Every cell in your body is encapsulated by a membrane composed of a double layer of phospholipids and the most abundant phospholipid is Phosphatidylcholine. Phosphatidylcholine gets incorporated into the cell membrane and improves its integrity and serves to improve the transport of nutrients and export toxins across the cell membrane. Chronic illness is associated with poor cell membrane health.

What is Phosphatidylcholine?

Every cell in your body is encapsulated by a membrane composed of a double layer of phospholipids and the most abundant phospholipid is Phosphatidylcholine (PC).  Phosphatidylcholine is the pivotal phospholipid that is prevalent in healthy young cell membranes and as we get older and/or ill this phospholipid gets replaced with less beneficial phospholipids and this lipid layer can trap and store many toxins.  These toxins can impact cell membrane and mitochondrial function (cells energy production) as well as cellular communication.  Phosphatidylcholine gets incorporated into the cell membrane and improves its integrity and serves to improve the transport of nutrients and export toxins across the cell membrane. 

Phosphatidylcholine is also a good source of choline, which is the main substrate for the production of the memory enhancing neurotransmitter, acetylcholine.  Phosphatidylcholine is also an excellent fat emulsifier and thus is helpful to improve serum lipid profiles. 

 

Who should receive Phosphatidylcholine IV?

Chronic illness is associated with poor cell membrane health.  This impacts conditions such as vascular (blood flow to heart, brain and extremities) disease, high cholesterol, liver disease, autoimmune disease, mood disorders, migraines and multiple neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia & memory loss.  By replenishing your cell membranes with healthy phospholipids, you can expect to improve overall cellular function as well as improve transport of important nutrients into the cell and export common toxic compounds such as heavy metals, organic pollutants and chemicals like PCB’s and pesticides from the cell.

 

Side Effects?

The only relatively common side effect is lowering of the blood pressure and associated lightheadedness.  This is not a dangerous situation and not a reason to discontinue the treatment. Another side effect might be loose stools.  Occasionally even in good veins there can be some irritation which can be avoided with adding it to additional fluids.
