PC Liver and Brain Granules provides a unique ultra-concentrated source of four essential phospholipids with exceptionally high levels of phosphatidyl choline (PC), which is the most abundant and important phospholipid in the body – particularly in the liver and brain. Phospholipids are vital to the structure of all cell membranes, and phosphatidyl choline is an essential building block of both liver and brain cells. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration now recognizes choline as essential because its content in our diet is inadequate and choline plays such a vital role in so many processes throughout the body, including the liver, nervous and cardiovascular systems, as well as the integrity of all cell membranes, the metabolism of fat and the growth of healthy hair. PC is a necessary raw material for the production of two vital components of the nervous system, acetylcholine, which is the primary neurotransmitter that allows all our nerve cells to communicate, as well as sphingomyelin, which forms the sheath that protects nerve cells. Both are absolutely essential for the normal, healthy functioning of the nervous system and brain – particularly as we age. In addition to providing extremely high levels of phosphatidyl choline (1,000 mg per tsp), our special PC Liver and Brain Granules provide almost 600 mg of phosphatidyl inositol (PI) and phosphatidyl ethanolamine (PE), as well as 10 mg of all-important phosphatidyl serine (PS). PC and PS are the most concentrated and critical phospholipids in the brain and both have been observed to help with the mild memory problems associated with the normal aging process. PS also supports our body’s healthy response to stress while supporting mental clarity, memory and cognitive function. The liver is perhaps the hardest working organ in our body and is comprised of more than 355,000 square feet of membrane surface area. PC makes up almost two-thirds of the more than 8 acres (about 8 football fields) of that hard-working membrane surface area within the liver. PC is essential to the liver’s vital role of cleansing the body’s internal environment and processing waste products, including virtually all medicines and alcohol. It is also required for the transport and metabolism of fat, protein and cholesterol within the body. PC is absolutely unique in its predominance in both the brain and liver, as well as the critical role it plays in the healthy function of these two vital organs. Given our concerns about fat and cholesterol metabolism, along with our society’s increasing consumption of medicines and alcohol, PC and PS just make sense and our PC Liver and Brain Granules is our most concentrated, comprehensive and economical way of delivering these essential nutrients.

Works for me
After 3 years of care-giving two disabled parents, my brain was exhausted. A couple months ago I had begun using this daily and no joke, it has seemed to help me maintain more focus. Not a miracle cure just seems better overall for my focus.
Kind of expensive, not sure why it is never offered as a Todays Special. I keep buying in the smallest size to save some money especially when buying many items at the same time. I would certainly like to see it as a special.

In 2015 I had a heart attack it left my kidneys almost non-functioning. They were slowly coming back when I tried the PC LIVER AND BRAIN GRANULES. It helped my kidneys to recover faster. I leave the seal on and only pull it back half way to use it and leave it on under the lid, that way it keeps it from clumping.

Surprised at the difference it makes
I started taking this to see if it would rid me of my "fuzziness" and help me increase my focus and I am pleased to say that it does! I put it in my (Secure) protein shake in the morning so I don't notice the taste. I notice that I feel better overall so while I haven't had my liver tested, I notice that I have been very healthy since I began taking this over a year ago. Mentally, I feel better than I ever have and I don't feel a need for coffee in the AM to wake me up either!

I FEEL THERE IS A DIFFERENCE WITH THIS PRODUCT
I have also tried the capsule form which I believe we were told it is not absorbed to the extent of the granule form. I can tell when I am taking the granule product in that my system makes me "tinkle or urinate" more. I am not tuned to the complexity of the double structure in phospholipids, explaining that this molecule is a fluid fence, very important in the construction of cell membranes, and not a true fat but is a source of acetylcholine an important neurotransmitter and helps with the transduction of biological signals across the membrane. As I can tell with healthy hair and nails when I have taken the product, so it is also with this granule formulation. I am 66 and still have to work and feel this has helped me. For me the taste is not great but it is NOT OFFENSIVE,AWFUL and I find taking the teaspoonful is easy. You have to be careful when you serve the dosing that no moisture on the spoon is present as this will start the clumping of the product. I also place this in the refrigerator.
