The liver is a large organ that performs many of your body’s vital functions and keeps it clean of harmful substances. It is also responsible for processing vitamins and nutrients into a form that can be used by the body. Modern living imposes a heavy load on the liver. Thus, maintaining its health becomes more crucial than ever. Endogenous phospholipid is an integral part of all cell membranes and essential for their structural and functional integrity. The chemical structure of a soybean extract, called PPC(polyenylphosphatidylcholine), corresponds to that of endogenous phospholipid. It integrates in the cell membrane and becomes the cell’s constitutive element. PPC has antioxidant, cytoprotective and fluid-regulating effects and has been shown to enhance cell membrane function throughout the body.
It is believed that PPC’s beneficial effect is based on its ability to be incorporated into liver cell membranes to restore its structure. This results in an increase in membrane fluidity and transport activity across the membrane. PPC is also incorporated into blood lipoproteins, helping to extend its benefits beyond the liver, to promote arterial health. Mounting evidence suggests that its supplementation beneficially supports the critical process of reverse cholesterol transport. This process is a well-documented function of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), that involves the transport of cholesterol from the arterial walls to the liver for processing. Research also supports PPC’s critical role in helping to reduce LDL oxidation. In fact, a growing body of research shows that PPC can help maintain healthy lipoprotein profiles.
