5 Reasons Why You Should Be Taking PC During Pregnancy

There’s A LOT of complicated biology that goes into creating your baby’s brain — and all of that hard work requires quality nutrition. But even the best diets (or prenatal vitamins!) rarely have enough nutrients to support rapid fetal growth - and no prenatals have healthy fats aka phospholipids that are SO crucial to healthy fetal development.

That's why we're here to guide you through understanding how supplementing with phospholipids namely phosphatidylcholine can play a pivotal role in supporting this journey.

Let's dive into the top 5 reasons why phosphatidylcholine should be a part of your prenatal care routine.

1. Phospholipids Build Brain Cells

A high-quality phospholipid complex is absolutely essential for fetal brain development. Phospholipids (like phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylserine) are the main building blocks of your baby’s brain, as well as all of their cell membranes. 

 We can’t get enough of these phospholipids through diet alone, and they are so critical to fetal development. So it’s important to supplement! Plus, phosphatidylcholine, the main phospholipid in BodyBio PC, plays a crucial role in maintaining cell structure and function. It is especially abundant in the liver, brain, and nervous tissues - pretty important organs for our developing babies 😉

“I think I would be a brain fog mess if it weren't for BodyBio PC. I also attribute my healthy pregnancies and healthy babies to this supplement. Phospholipids are so important to healthy fetal development, and unfortunately, we do not get enough from our food alone.”

2. Nurturing the Nervous System

The development of your baby's nervous system is intricate and crucial. Phosphatidylcholine contributes to this developmental milestone by being involved in the synthesis of acetylcholine, a key neurotransmitter. This ensures that your baby's nervous system develops correctly, supporting everything from movement to memory.

3. Protecting Liver Health

Pregnancy puts extra demands on the liver, and phosphatidylcholine steps in as a liver's ally. It helps transport fats and cholesterol, safeguarding the liver against accumulated fat and promoting overall liver health. This is especially important during pregnancy when your body is working overtime for the well-being of two.

4. Supporting Placental Function

The placenta is your baby's lifeline during pregnancy, and phosphatidylcholine supports its vital functions. By contributing to the structural integrity of cell membranes, it ensures that the placenta can efficiently supply oxygen and nutrients to your growing baby, supporting a healthy pregnancy.
