Heart Health IV

The main ingredient in our Heart Health IV drip is Phosphatidylcholine, called PC for short, is simply one of the main components of lecithin a micronutrient you’ve probably seen listed in various places, such as the label of your favorite multivitamin. PC is found in every cell membrane in your body. It’s called a phospholipid, and it’s made up of phosphorus, glycerol, and fatty acids. In the diet, it can be found naturally in foods like soybeans, nuts, seeds, egg yolks, and liver.

How Does the Heart Health IV Work?

Just about anyone with age-related or chronic health issues can benefit from IV phosphatidylcholine.

That’s because age and chronic illness affect the functional integrity of cell membranes, which has a major impact on the vascular and neurological systems. By replenishing the supply of phosphatidylcholine to cells with an IV infusion, you can improve cellular function.

Phosphatidylcholine supplementation through IV infusion is highly effective for improving mitochondrial function and allowing toxins such as chemicals, heavy metals, and organic pollutants to be exported more efficiently. Phosphatidylcholine plays a key role in the metabolism of cholesterol and has an anti-inflammatory effect on the digestive system.

Maintains Cell Integrity

All of the cells in the human body are encapsulated with a membrane that’s made up of a double layer of phospholipids. Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is the most essential phospholipid and it’s found in young, healthy cellular membranes. Unfortunately, when we’re ill or aging, the amount of PC in the cellular membranes decreases. It is replaced with less efficient phospholipids that can trap and retain common toxic compounds like heavy metals and pesticides. These toxic substances compromise the cell membrane and inhibit effective communication between the cells. They can also impair cellular function at the mitochondrial level, which is the energy center of each cell. By making phosphatidylcholine available to the cells again, we can restore the cellular membranes to their former integrity. This improves the cells’ ability to eliminate toxins across the membrane and transport nutrients more efficiently.

Removes Excess Fats

In the body, lecithin works as an emulsifier. That means it suspends oils and fats to prevent them from mixing with other substances.  The human body can produce a small amount of lecithin in the liver, but not enough to meet the body’s requirements. The rest must come from food or supplements. Those who follow a plant-based diet are at higher risk of being deficient in lecithin (and phosphatidylcholine) because they don’t eat meat or eggs. Deficiencies may lead to poor liver and brain function, fatigue, a higher risk of blood clots, and more.

Improves Memory

Phosphatidylcholine is also a good source of choline. Choline is the main substance used to produce acetylcholine, which is a crucial neurotransmitter for memory and cognitive function.
