What Is PPC Therapy?

PPC is a mixture of essential phospholipids (lecithin and phosphatidylcholine) made from soybeans.

Developed in Europe for atherosclerosis PPC is primarily used to remove the deposits of fatty plaque in arteries and other blood vessels. The most important effect of PPC is its remarkable ability to reduce plaque deposits in the artery wall. PPC therapy increases the heart’s ability to withstand stress and is valuable for individuals who have suffered a heart attack or other heart injury.

PPC is also known as phoshatidylcholine or polyenylphosphatidylcholine. In various countries PPC is also known and sold as Plaquex and Lipostabil.


PPC aids in the removal of cholesterol deposits from cell membranes, arteries, fat cells, muscles, and connective tissue.

This excess cholesterol is then transported to the liver for excretion. PPC also lowers the level of lipoprotein A, a critical factor in the formation of blood clots during heart attacks or stroke. It cleanses the fat from the arteries in the body, and improves circulation to the heart, brain, and other vital organs. In some patients it can also improve cognitive function (memory) and a return of sexual potency.

Atherosclerotic plaque



The use of PPC over the years by chelation doctors worldwide has proven that PPC is extremely useful in helping patients avoid By-Pass surgery, angioplasty, amputations (especially in diabetics) and strokes.

PPC's main therapeutic uses are:

  • Reduces angina (heart pain)
  • Lowers high blood pressure
  • Decreases LDL (bad cholesterol)
  • Increases HDL (good cholesterol)
  • Lowers Lipoprotein A
  • Improves sexual potency
  • Protects damaged heart muscles
  • Reduces homocysteine levels
  • Improves kidney function
  • Improves cognitive function (memory)
