Micellized Pure PC by Quicksilver Scientific is a dietary supplement which contains 700 mg of phosphatidylcholine in one serving. The product is a source of valuable phospholipids which positively affect i.a. the nervous and cardiovascular systems, liver and cholesterol balance in blood.
Lecithin belongs to phospholipids (complex fats) which support the cardiovascular system, regulate blood lipid profile and fat metabolism. As phosphatidylcholine is a precursor to a neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, it has also a positive influence on the functioning of brain and nervous system; it promotes concentration, memorising and cognitive functions. The compounds forming lecithin (i.a. phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol or phosphatidylserine) are main components of cell membranes and other cell organelles; moreover, lecithin protects them from the harmful effects of free radicals. Unsaturated fatty acids contained in lecithin have positive impact on the regulation of lipid levels in blood, which reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
Positive influence on the nervous system and sexual functions
As it is the main structural element of nerve cells (it is a part of myelin sheath), phosphatidylcholine is essential for the proper functioning of the human brain. It is a mechanical protection and electrical insulation of axons as well as it increases the effectiveness of nerve conduction between particular cells.
Choline contained in lecithin is used by the body system to production of the main neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, which is responsible for the conduction of signals between neurons and participates in the process of muscle contraction – it plays a role of a nerve impulse transmitter. Supplementation with lecithin positively affects cognitive processes and functions, concentration and memorising. It is worth noting that the demand for this substance increases as a result of body system exposition to prolonged stress or intellectual effort. Its deficiency can lead to severe diseases of the nervous system, including Alzheimer’s disease.
Few people are aware of the fact that choline is necessary for the production of thyroxine (T4), a hormone produced in the thyroid gland which affects metabolism and sex drive.
Support for the cardiovascular system
The core factor is the presence of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the lecithin molecule, which bind with cholesterol facilitating its transport and removal from the body system. It directly results in the regulation of lipid levels in blood and improvement in relation between the “bad” LDL cholesterol and the “healthy” HDL. Lecithin has emulgating influence on fats and cholesterol (it breaks them down), which is why it prevents them from accumulating on the walls of blood vessels and blood platelets. This reduces the risk of various cardiovascular diseases, such as atherosclerosis, hypertension or coronary disease.
Positive influence on liver functions
The above mentioned ability of lecithin to break down lipids (coagulation) has also beneficial influence on the liver functions. Choline prevents formation of gallstones and excessive accumulation of lipids in the liver. Moreover, phosphatidylcholine builds into damaged cell membranes of the liver and into hepatocytes, which regenerates them, protects and supports the proper functioning. Supplementation with lecithin is then recommended for people with alcohol problems or exposed to prolonged influence of hepatotoxic agents
Benefits for the health of the respiratory system
This property is attributed to the one of lecithin forms (DPPC, dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine), an important component of surfactant. It is a factor which occurs on the internal surface of alveoli, responsible for reduction of their surface tension. DPPC contributes to reduction of elastic resistance during respiration, which is why it is an important substance preventing asthma and other diseases of the respiratory system.
Phosphatidylinositol improves functions of hormones and neurotransmitters
Phosphatidylinositol is a precursor to secondary transmitters (signalling molecules present inside the cells), such as DAG (diacylglycerols) and IP3 (inositol triphosphate), which participate in signal transmission by GnRH (gonadoliberin). GnRH is a hormone which stimulates secretion of gonadotropins (LH and FSH) and TSH (thyrotropin, a hormone stimulating the thyroid gland to production of T3 and T4) in the pituitary gland. This is why inositol positively affects production of testosterone and sperm cells as well has a positive influence on metabolism, which is determined by the proper functioning of the thyroid gland.
Apart from that, it is worth to notice the influence of inositol on the reduction in LDL cholesterol level and nutrition of cells of the central nervous system. It is then an important factor reducing lipid level in blood and showing tranquilizing properties.
To sum it all up, Micellized Pure PC is a product intended for people who need support for the functioning of the nervous and circulatory systems and those taking care of the proper cholesterol level in blood. Lecithin comprehensively supports the body system; it helps to reduce problems with concentration and memory and enhances the prevention of the diseases of the liver, cardiovascular system and other diseases of affluence.
The supplement is recommended for people exposed to prolonged stress or intensive intellectual effort (pupils, students preparing for exams, white-collar workers in responsible positions), to improve regeneration and restore the proper condition of tired nervous system.
Because of its positive influence on the brain and nervous system, lecithin is highly recommended to elderly people, as it contributes to the slow down of neurodegenerative processes. Supplementation should be also considered by people being at risk of cardiovascular diseases. Benefits from lecithin use are visible by regular supplementation of 500–2,000 g daily.
To maximise the effects of phosphatidylcholine use, it is worth to combine its supplementation with choline, NADH (nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide), B-vitamin complex, calcium and magnesium. These substances show synergy of action in supporting the nervous system and the proper functioning of the cardiovascular system.
Quicksilver Scientific is a brand which, apart from manufacturing of nutraceuticals and active selling of dietary supplements, specialises in liposomes, heavy metals blood testing and regulating the body’s detoxification process.
Dr Christopher Shade, the founder and CEO of the company, patented an innovative method for analysing the extent to which our body counteracts toxic effects of mercury. In addition, he designed unique products based on properties of liposomes which are absorbed quickly and their special structure and size protect them and their contents from damage by digestive processes.
To sum up, the main goal of the company is to ensure the best non-invasive support for functioning of the natural detoxification process and effective regeneration of the body by means of advanced and safe manufacturing methods.

Choline belongs to the soluble in liquids group of B vitamins. It is an organic nitrogen base containing lecithin, and acetylcholine. Together with inositol is involved in the metabolism of fats and cholesterol metabolism, preventing its accumulation on the walls of arteries and deposits in the gallbladder. With the penetration of the brain, contained lecithin improves its action and improves memory. Used in the treatment of age-related diseases (Alzheimer's). It occurs in plant foods: yeast, wheat germ, lecithin, green leafy vegetables and egg yolks.
Lecithin is part of the phospholipids (lipid complex), beneficial for the function of the cardiovascular system and blood lipid profile and fat metabolism. It is a source of choline which is a precursor of acetylcholine (neurotransmitter) that affects the nervous system, including inositol (stabilizer of the copper and zinc balance in the body). It improves concentration, cognition and memory. Forms a colloidal suspension of a liquid in the fat (emulsification) allowing for their use in the food industry. It is a component of dietary supplements supporting the work of the central nervous system, blood circulation, accelerating weight loss and in protein, carbohydrate-protein supplement as an emulsifier, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
