What are the exact ingredients in BodyBio PC?
Phophatidylcholine, Phophatidylethanolamine (minor phospholipids & glycolipids), 4:1 essential fatty acids, and ethanol.
Why is Ethanol in BodyBio PC?
Ethanol is used to extract the phospholipids from the soy concentrate. The ethanol is then removed by vacuum distillation; however there is a small amount that is left 2.
What is a Phospholipid?
Chemically speaking, phospholipids are the active component in lecithin. Compared to a typical fat or triglyceride (Tri meaning three fatty acids attached) phospholipids normally contain two fatty acids and in place of the third fatty acid they have a phosphorous containing head group. A phospholipid is unique because its fatty acid tails like oil and its head group likes water. When a phospholipid comes in contact with water, it spontaneously forms what is commonly referred to as a bilayer structure. The bilayer functions as the skin or membrane of living cells and organelles.
Another crucial component of a phospholipid is the type of fatty acids attached to it. A phospholipid such as soy-derived polyenylphosphatidylcholine is rich in linoleic and linolenic acid, and polyunsaturated fatty acids that provide fluidity to the cell membrane. Maintaining membrane fluidity is crucial, as the membrane is central to the majority of cellular activities.
What is the difference/benefit of taking capsules over liquid or vice versa?
None, only convenience and personal preference.
