Phosphatidylcholine- IM or SUBQ for cholesterol health

  1. Phosphatidylcholine- IM or SUBQ for cholesterol health

    This was recommended to me and was wondering what the opinions are on this. Not sure if this is the right section, as this is a supp, but just not swallowed...

  2. Sure you can't take it orally?
    There are several forms of phosphatidylcholine supplements. Typical commercial lecithin supplements contain 20 to 30% phosphatidylcholine. Softgel capsules containing 55% and 90% phosphatidylcholine are available. Liquid concentrates containing 3 grams of phosphatidylcholine per 5 milliliters (one teaspoon) are also available.

    Recommended doses range from 3 to 9 grams of phosphatidylcholine daily in divided doses.


    Phosphatidylcholine has been used to lower serum cholesterol levels, based on the premise that lecithin cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activity has an important role in the removal of cholesterol from tissues. A few studies have shown reduction in serum cholesterol with phosphatidylcholine intake. The results were quite modest, and most studies have not shown any significant cholesterol-lowering activity.
