    True, the body can easily make that amount. Eating lots of coconut oil to make DAG for PC synthesis via the Kennedy pathway will provide the lauric acid. Any idea how much PC can synthesize a day?

    That's a question for @Terma.

    I believe it's several grams, but I read those studies 2 years ago or so and I can't remember where what was. All I can remember clearly is being put off from consuming lecithin because you'd need too much to make a dent (phospholipids were heavily promoted for ME/CFS, but the products created were all soy lipids and revolting). This is the only thing Recoll can find in my PDFs at the moment: Dietary Phospholipids and Intestinal Cholesterol Absorption
    So the PC synthesis is some fraction of 10-20g. But PC is the biggest fraction, PE second. I'll have to continue this some other day, you might find it before that. I thought I read a maximum of 8g somewhere but my memory is probably wrong, it seems too high.

    This was the product heavily promoted for ME/CFS, I bought it, it was in powder form and I ended up throwing it out: http://ntfactor.com

    [It wasn't nearly as bad as trying to gulp down spoonfuls of "liquid" lecithin, but still... don't buy this unless you're staring down a barrel]

    Guru,
    - Is it feasible to sell a version with only the cheaper stearic acid form for those that are after choline? Tocopherols would be dispensable. Not sure if there are others interested on this.
    - How much gets absorbed intact on average when ingested? How much the composition of a meal can interfere on how it's incorporated?
    - What happens if someone insists on taking a single form? Is it saturable?

    For anyone wondering, I think Mitolipin has a strong effect on gut barrier integrity, which has been one of my main problems.

    For this use are you using it internally?

    No, topically.

    Some of the studies haidut originally posted are about PC helping intestinal barrier integrity. Over a long period of time I've come to associate many of my issues with endotoxin/gut barrier, and response to certain substances. It feels like the PC is helping it a lot, likely the Vitamin E too, though to really address my symptoms I'm having to also take a lot of Tocovit (and antibiotics, Mg, B vitamins, protein, etc....). The Mitolipin feels more thyromimetic, it warms my ears up nicely and reliably.
