The beneficial effects are likely due primarily to the essential fatty acid components of phosphatidylcholine and lecithin preparations. Many find it calming and relaxing for the nerves. As essential nutrient choline is a building block in cell membranes and is involved in many processes including the transport of fat from the liver to the blood stream and overall liver function. It takes part in a variety of biochemical reactions that generate single carbon units called methyl groups that in turn are important in the synthesis and repair of DNA and the use of vitamin B12 folic acid the amino acid methionine and the antioxidant "protector" glutathione.
Therefore a deficiency of choline can affect many body functions. Phosphatidyl choline is the nutrient precursor to acetylcholine an important brain chemical (neurotransmitter) involved in both memory and thought. In healthy people phosphatidyl choline can enhance mental function and is needed to build cell membranes improve nerve cell efficiency and repair neurons. Phosphatidylcholine is also a superb daily addition to the diet of anyone seeking safe nutritional support for healthy liver function.
