Essential Phospholipids in ESENTIN
Supplementation with essential phospholipids has important clinical benefits
Phospholipids are essential for high purity extracts containing from 76% to 94% phosphatidylcholine, four to five times more than lecithin.
Essential phospholipids have a high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (linoleic acid and choline).
Once ingested and digested, EPs are distributed throughout the body where their effects vary with the location. A partial list of these effects includes:
- Supporting cellular regeneration. EPs supply the basic structural elements of every cell membrane in the body.
- Neurotransmitter production. PC is an excellent source of choline for the neurotransmitter synthesis.
- Energy production.The body oxidizes (literally, burns) fatty acids and glycerol to produce energy.
- Energy storage.Fatty acids and glycerol may be stored as fat. Stored body fats provide a ready source of potential energy.
- Prostaglandin production.The body uses linoleic acid, one of the fatty acids in EPs, to make prostaglandins, a valuable family of biochemical.
- Improving digestion.In the GI tract, EPs aid digestion by facilitating fats absorption.
- Aid in blood clotting.EPs help modulate the aggregation of red blood cells and clotting agents called
- Increasing cholesterolBy increasing the solubility of cholesterol, EPs decrease cholesterol’s propensity to damage blood vessels.
- Antioxidant PC has potent antioxidant activity, which can protect against one of the most important factors promoting body aging – oxygen free radical damage.
