Phosphatidyl Choline (PC) an Anti-Aging Wonder Pill

You’ve likely read or heard about phosphatidyl choline somewhere, maybe online or on a bottle in a supplement aisle. Perhaps, like many of us, you could barely pronounce it and therefore disregarded it completely. It’s a good rule not to swallow anything you can’t pronounce unless someone reasonably knowledgeable and credible explains why you should.

Phosphatidyl choline (fahs-fah-tide-all koline, PC for short) is the nutritional source for one of the several types of fats, called phospholipids, required by our bodies for healthy structure and function of the outer surface of our cells–the cellular membrane.

Our cell membranes are designed to allow nutrients into the cell itself, keep out toxins, and flush away waste products of metabolism. But as we age the membranes grow less and less efficient, both at filtering and detoxifying. In a nutshell, PC strengthens cell membranes.

Interestingly, PC is also involved in the manufacturing of acetylcholine, a brain neurotransmitter involved in clear thought and memory.

Phospholipid membrane deterioration is a major component of virtually all chronic illnesses as well as premature aging. Diseases well-known to be linked to membrane deterioration include all the chronic inflammatory and autoimmune disorders– Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, chronic Lyme and mold biotoxin illnesses, and multiple sclerosis.

Trigger Point Therapy at WholeHealth Chicago

How Are Trigger Points Related To Fibromyalgia And Chronic Pain Or Muscle Problems??

By themselves, myofascial trigger points are a very common cause of pain and usually localized to one or two areas of the body. They have an interesting property in that they can refer pain to an area not necessarily where they are located, a trigger point in your neck can refer pain all the way down your arm or to your upper back. Picture Myofascial Trigger Points as a tight, highly contracted area in your muscles and fascia stuck in a feedback loop of pain which tries to protect itself by more tightness, the result being more pain.

As you can imagine, Trigger Points are not only painful, but the efficiency of muscles nearby are impaired. A golfer notices a change in his swing, a dentist has difficulty using her hand, a professional violinist starts worrying about his career. The list goes on and on, and the pain can be every day. Just to clarify; “myo” means muscle, and “fascia” is the three-dimensional connective tissue matrix that surrounds and interpenetrates all soft tissue areas of the body. This modality is not myofascial release per se. This modality addresses the fascia as well as the muscle. The two cannot ever be separated nor can one be treated without the other, thus the name Myofascial Trigger Point Therapy.

Mysofascial Trigger Points are also a message from the rest of your body that something's not quite right. Learn More...

Featured Supplement: Choline for Optimal Cell Function

Citicoline CDP Choline 

Citicoline [stabilized CDP Choline (cytidine 5’- diphosphocholine)] is a naturally-occurring intermediate involved in the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, a major constituent of the grey matter of brain tissue (30%).* Citicoline consumption promotes brain metabolism by supporting the synthesis of acetylcholine and restoring phospholipid content in the brain, both of which positively affect memory and other brain activity.*
