How Phosphatidyl Works

Phosphatidylcholine is a natural compound and is able to mimic the lipid layer surrounding cells, which enables the skin to accept it as its own for better penetration. Phosphatidylcholine is distinguished from other phospholipids by several characteristics, such as the choline head and the polyunsaturated essential fatty acid chains that make up its tail.

Essential fatty acids are fats that humans need, but cannot create themselves. The two families of essential fatty acids are Omega-3 and Omega-6. Because essential fatty acids are not made by the body, they need to be obtained through food and supplements.



Foods that contain choline include:

  • Vegetables (especially cauliflower and lettuce)
  • Whole grains
  • Liver
  • Soy

Foods that contain lecithin (containing 10-20% phosphatidylcholine):

  • Grains
  • Legumes
  • Meat
  • Egg yolks


Benefits of Phosphatidyl

The benefits of Phosphatidylcholine allow it to be used to treat a variety of conditions.

These conditions include:

  • Liver problems
  • Bipolar depression
  • Dementia
  • High Cholesterol
  • High blood pressure

It is the structure of Phosphatidylcholine, the choline head and essential fatty acids tail, that makes it so beneficial to health. Choline is required for the proper metabolism of fats, and it facilitates the movement of fats in and out of cells. In the liver, choline keeps fat and bile from becoming trapped and developing into more serious health concerns, such as cirrhosis. Choline is also essential for the creation of acetylcholine, which is important for several brain functions, including memory. This is the reason why it has been thought to help with dementia conditions such as Alzheimers.

Phosphatidylcholine itself increases the solubility (i.e. absorption) of cholesterol, which is important for lowering cholesterol levels in the body. It does this by removing cholesterol from tissue deposits and by stopping the clumping together of platelets in the blood.

Dr. Perricone understands the wide array of benefits Phosphatidyl brings to anti-aging treatments, and has included it as a key science in many of his products including the NV Perricone MD Intensive Moisture Therapy.
