Phospholipids (PC) are involved in how our genes are expressed. It is not genetics that determines how genes are expressed but epigenetics. Phosphatidylcholine is needed for the formation of those phospholipids. Pollution, toxins, many medication, aging, stress, bad diets, consuming non organic foods can all and chronic illness cause phosphatidyl choline deficiency. A deficiency in phosphotidylcholine causes sphingomyelin to build up and LDL levels to increase which causes liver, kidney , neurological and brain damage. PC is needed to transport waste out of cells and nutrients into cells. So it is needed for cellular health. Phosphotidylcholine is not the same as choline. Though phosphatidylcholine can increase choline and acetycholine levels. The body uses choline to produce many other things.
Posphatidylcholine improves brain function and prevents neurological damage. It improves memory and helps prevent dementia. Phosphatidylcholine may increase life span. Phosphatidylcholine helps prevent diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and many metabolic disorders. Cholesterol is needed by almost every cell in the body and is needed for proper function of the brain. If phosphatidylcholine is low then many processes in the body becomes inhibited and brain damage and reduces function of the brain occurs. PEMT overexpression combined with phosphatidylcholine deficiency can cause obesity. CDP-choline deficiency can cause muscular dystrophy, fatty liver disease, neurological and brain damage, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, reduces fertility, and causes miscarriages.
CDP-choline is needed for liver regeneration. CDP-choline deficiency makes the lungs prone to infection and injury.
Low levels of CDP-choline causes ulcerative colitis and inhibits nutrient absorption. Low CDP-choline levels can cause muscle fatigue and muscle loss. Because vaccines and glyphosate found in high levels in our foods can damage the metabolic pathways involved in the production of CDP-choline I would not doubt those getting infected by Covid and other contagious illnesses that damage the lungs are deficient in CDP-choline and have most likely been vaccine injured or injured from eating processed foods and GMOs. One thing that has me convinced of this is the fact that CDP-choline is also needed for good gut health and those prone to lung infection and injury usually have inflamed guts.
Foods high in CDP-choline are meat, sun flower seeds, eggs, fish, and oysters. If you supplement with it, liposomal CDP-choline would be the best to use. CDP-choline and alpha GPC seem to be the best options for supplementing phosphatidylcholine.
CDP-choline protect from cardiovascular disease and artherosclerosis. Low CDP-choline levels can cause high homocysteine levels which can damage organs, damage the brain and cause high histamine levels. CDP-choline prevents high homocysteine levels.
I believe CDP-choline would protect from herpes infections and Covid because they inhibit beta oxidation and CDP-choline prevents that from happening. Systemic inflammation inhibits beta oxidation. Vaccine manufacturers claim they need vaccines to stimulate inflammation in order for them to work. Most processed foods especially GMOs cause systemic inflammation. Drugs especially fluoroquinolones inhibit beta oxidation. Those prone to herpes virus infection and Corona have been found to have systemic inflammation.
Because proper PEMT function is important for the proper metabolism of phospholipids if you have PEMT issues I would recommend supporting sulfation and research the benefits of betaine. If you have sulfation issues or PEMT issues you may react to CDP-choline. Those should be addressed before taking it. Some side effects if a person takes too much is nausea, excess sweating, and diarrhea. It would be best if someone took it with food.
