Phosphatidylcholine

Commonly referred to as lecithin, a fatty substance widely distributed in plant and animal tissue. It is composed of phosphoric acid, choline, fatty acids, glycerol, glycolipids, triglycerides, and phospholipids.

Phosphatidylcholine is widely used in cell membranes and for the production of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. It is considered a nonessential nutrient as it can produced by human cellular metabolism.

Foods rich in phosphatidylcholine include egg yolk, fish, soybeans, the germ of wheat and other grains, legumes such as peanuts, and yeast.
