The liver is a large glandular organ, whose functions include decomposition of red blood cells, plasma protein synthesis, hormone production, secretion of bile, and conversion of sugars into glycogen, which it stores. The liver is also responsible for processing many vitamins and nutrients into a form that can be utilized by the body, as well as detoxification of various substances. Modern living involves daily exposure to substances that are toxic to our bodies, which imposes a heavy load on the liver. Therefore, a healthy liver is critical to well-being. Certain lifestyle risks and medical conditions make it all the more important to ensure that the liver is being maintained at its functional best.

Endogenous phospholipid is an integral part of all cell membranes and essential for their structural and functional integrity. The chemical structure of an extract from soybeans called PPC (polyenylphosphatidylcholine) corresponds to that of endogenous phospholipid and integrates in the cell membrane, becoming the cell’s constitutive element. PPC possesses functional superiority because of its content of unsaturated fatty acids.26 PPC has antioxidant, cytoprotective, and fluid-regulating effects and has been shown to enhance cell membrane function throughout the body.27

It is believed that PPC’s beneficial effect is based on its ability to be incorporated into liver cell membranes to help restore its structure and the functioning of corresponding enzymes.26,28 This results in an increase in membrane fluidity and transport activity across the membrane.

PPC also has strong antioxidant properties, which means it may reduce oxidative stress (cellular changes that generate free radicals), may help protect the liver by modulating its immune response.

PPC is also incorporated into blood lipoproteins, helping to extend its benefits beyond the liver to promote arterial health.

Mounting evidence suggests that PPC supplementation beneficially supports the critical process of reverse cholesterol transport. This process is a well-documented function of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) that involves the transport of cholesterol from the arterial walls to the liver for processing.27,29

Research also supports PPC’s critical role in helping to reduce LDL oxidation.30,31 In fact, a growing body of research shows that PPC can help maintain healthy lipoprotein profiles in those already within normal range.30

HepatoPro contains PPC (polyenylphosphatidylcholine). Each 900-mg PPC softgel is well-absorbed when taken orally and has no known contraindications, side effects, or drug interactions.

    HepatoPro and rejuvenated healthy liver

      Comments about Life Extension HepatoPro (Polyunsaturated Phosphatidylcholine), 900 mg 60 softgels:

      I began taking HepatoPro, along with 3 European Milk Thistle and 1 Selenium in 2007 when I was first diagnosed with Hep C. I had historically had very high (10-20x) liver enzyme readings from a previous auto-immune episode. A sonogram in 2007 revealed a slightly fatty liver. And blood tests revealed a moderate-high HCV viral load.

      I chose to try this alternative cocktail rather than voluntarily poison myself with the standard, unreliable HCV chemical regimen.

      I am also being treated for high lipids, so my liver has been under a lot of stress for a long time.

      Ever since 2007, I'm tested at least 2x yearly.
      1- my liver enzyme readings have dramatically dropped 80-90% to almost normal.
      2- periodic sonograms reveal a now normal, not fatty, liver.
      3- my HCV viral load has steadily dropped almost 95% into a very low concentration.
      4- my blood lipid levels are solidly normal

      Comments about Life Extension HepatoPro (Polyunsaturated Phosphatidylcholine), 900 mg 60 softgels:

      I have NAFLD (non alcholic fatty liver disease) This is one of the supplements I have been taking for a few months. I havn't had my enzymes tested as yet, so I don't know my results.

      I am also taking Omega 3, European Milk Thistle, Liver Efficiency Formula, vitamin E and TMG.

      LE Europe has an article:
      http://www.lefeurope.com/en/concerns/non-alcoholic-fatty-liver-disease

      That article also recommends SAMe, NAC, trans-resveratrol and a prescription drug. I'm not taking those others, at least so far. I have read that TMG is good in place of SAMe as the body uses TMG to make SAME and TMG is much cheaper. And is useful for high homocystine which I also have.

      The capsule is rather large. I used to have problems swallowing large pills, but, I have acclimated to it. But if you have problems with large pills, this might be a problem. It is a gelcap which is slipery so to speak, so, that helps. Its rock hard though, the hardest gelcap I've ever seen, if that means anything.

      There was another brand on the market of PPC which was only 450 mg. That company I think went out of business. But, they said they thought 900 mg was too high of a dose for most people and so they offerred it in 450 mg dose. I wish LE offerred the 450 mg dose as well. It is not a cheap supplement and 450 mg might be a good cost-effective doese.

              I use the product twice a day, However, you can take it up to three times per day. The capsules are large, but with plenty of liquid not a problem to swallow.
              I started taking this product when I found out that my liver enzymes were slightly elevated due to my weight. The product is effective, and I will continue to take it.

                In 2003 I was identified by a doctor as having liver problems, high enzymes. I saw a life extension magazine that had an article about this product. I began taking this product in 2003 by 2004 my liver was normal. I continue to take this product and swear I recovered because of this product. My liver gets tested every six months. To date my enzymes have all been normal.
