Essential phospholipids (EPL) are a combination of unsaturated fatty acid phospholipids from natural sources like soybean or sunflower.
Phospholipids contribute to the regulation of biological pathways, including cellular communication and synthesis of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Their clinical benefits are backed up by thorough research and published studies.
Lipid profile modifying abilities; Prevents platelet aggregation; Increases patient's physical working capacity
A superior protectant against liver damage; Against alcoholic & non alcoholic fatty liver; Against other liver toxins
Key donor of choline; For age-related cognitive decline and illnesses; Important during pregnancy & infancy
The infusion of lipid emulsions allows a high energy supply, facilitates the prevention of high glucose infusion rates and is indispensable for the supply with essential fatty acids. Egg phospholipids are used to emulsify 10-30% oil-in-water emulsions for parenteral nutrition. The major components of lipid emulsions are essential omega-3 fatty acids (alpha-linolenic acid, DHA, EPA) and omega-6 fatty acids (linoleic acid, arachidonic acid).
Active people require greater amounts and higher quality of protein than sedentary people. Regular physical training tends to reduce muscle protein breakdown and protein loss from the body. Proteins help for building muscle and improving muscle recovery after intense workouts.
The bio availability of egg yolk protein makes it a better source than whey protein.
Egg lipids not only mimic the human milk fatty acid composition, they also come naturally with choline (from the phospholipid phosphatidylcholine). They contain cholesterol, vitamin B7 (biotin) and carotenoids (lutein, zeaxanthin) – all fundamental nutrients in the early development of babies.
Studies also found that they protect the mucosa of intestinal tract against the adhesion of pathogenic bacteria, reducing the risk of severe diarrhoea.
Phospholipids derived from egg yolk have been determined to be Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for use as an ingredient in term and preterm infant formula
