Phospholipids or phosphatides are an integral part of biological membranes, and they tend to decrease as we age. They are critical for cell and mitochondrial membrane shape, repair and growth. Proper cell membrane function facilitates healthy cell signaling, which is important for energy production, immune function and regulating inflammatory cascades. Additionally, Fundamental PC + leverages the benefits of a full-spectrum phosphatide blend to help process fats and balance the nervous system to support better focus, brain health and cognitive function. This high-concentration phosphatide blend is naturally bioavailable and rapidly absorbed.
Phosphatides and the Mitochondrial-Immune Interface
While phosphatides make up a large portion of the lipids comprising cellular and intracellular membranes, it is their metabolism that creates a tightly controlled cell signaling network essential for a healthy innate immune response.
Oral phosphatides can be used to help modify mitochondrial signals and promote healthy inner mitochondrial membrane potential, thereby improving electron transport chain function, ATP synthesis (including perceived energy, mood and cognition) and overall immune-health balance.
Phosphatides and the Gut-Immune Interface
In a healthy gastrointestinal tract, the presence of phosphatidylcholine (PC) in the mucosal secretion mucus creates a hydrophobic surface layer that safeguards the intestinal tissues and modulates mucosal signaling.
PC represents more than 90% of the phospholipids comprising intestinal mucus, which serves as a primary component of the intestinal barrier creating a protectant shield against GI-related immune challenges by binding foreign matter.
