The human brain is nearly 60 percent fat. We’ve learned in recent years that fatty acids are among the most crucial molecules that determine your brain’s integrity and ability to perform.
A fatty tissue called the myelin sheath protects nerve cells. This sheath is much like insulation around an electrical wire. Neurological diseases occur when this protective myelin sheath is damaged and nerve cells are exposed and malfunctioning, or not communicating the way they should.
Healthy fat is essential in keeping our brain and nervous system functioning well not only now, but as we age. Eating essential fatty acids and omega fats is crucial in assisting in the natural repair functions for nearly every one of us, and especially those patients with neurological conditions such as MS, ALS, and Parkinson’s.
Fat is also an essential component to improving cellular uptake of other nutrients as well as detox cells of unwanted substances.
Phosphatidylcholines (PC) are a class of phospholipids (lipid = fatty acid), which are incorporated into cell membranes, and improves its integrity and serves to improve the transport of nutrients and export toxins across the cell membrane. It is also a precursor to acetylcholine, a major neurotransmitter, via its intermediary choline.
The “PK Protocol” named after originator Patricia Kane PhD, involves IV push of lower doses of stabilized PC known as Essentiale–N, and this is something what we provide at our clinic.
Essentiale-N has been applied clinically for neurodetoxification and neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s, MS, and ALS, as well as Lymes, CFIDS, fibromyalgia, autism, hepatitis, and mood disorders.
Yet on another level, Essentiale-N can also be given as a “precursor” to any other nutrient IVs in order to help the cellular absorption of those specific nutrients such as Vitamin C, minerals, curcumin, and B vitamins.
Used as an anti-aging strategy, this potent substance can slow down the degenerative process on many levels and keep our most precious assets, our brains and nerves, from degrading and leading to unwanted devastating disorders. Consider Essentiale-N as one of your regular IV choices for anti-aging.
