The human body is made up of more than 70 billion cells, all responsible for very different functions in our body. The functionality of these cells is maintained, among other things, by the action of phosphatidylcholine. Choline plays an essential role in hepatoprotection or antihepatotoxicity, the ability of a chemical substance to prevent damage to the liver. Phosphatidylcholine is the main component of the external layer of hepatocyte membranes and of the phospholipid layer of lipoproteins.
Phosphatidylcholine is an important source of choline for the liver, which can support the breakdown of fats. Because the liver cannot bind free choline, choline must be taken in with food. If it is not, then the body can develop a so-called fatty liver (steatosis). By synthesizing bile salts, phosphatidylcholine helps to improve digestion in the gut, remove fat from the liver, and thus prevent the onset of steatosis. It is common to take supplements in the form of choline salts, but their action is less effective than that of phosphatidylcholine.
