Soy Phosphatidylcholine (PC)

Native lecithin consists for three major phospholipids Phosphatidylcholine (PC), Phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) and Phosphatidylinositol (PI). When lecithin is fractionated the predominant and widely used phospholipid is Phosphatidylcholine, which can help provide an important dietary source of choline, an essential nutrient that has several potential health benefits. Within the body, choline serves as a central nutrient for cellular integrity and metabolism.

The FDA permits a product to be labeled an "excellent source of choline" if a serving contains more than 110 mg of choline and as a "good source of choline" if a serving contains more than 55 mg of choline.

Common sources: A primary source of choline in our diet is derived from consuming lecithin, which is common in beef liver, chicken liver, eggs, wheat germ, bacon, dried soybeans and pork.

Children 0 – 6 months 125 mg/day
