Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does ch-OSA® provide any other health benefits?
A: Yes. The choline portion of the ch-OSA matrix gives you two major benefits.
One, it helps prevent the natural breakdown of collagen in your body. Both the new collagen that ch-OSA generates as well as your existing collagen.
You see, inside your body, you have a naturally-occurring substance known as homocysteine. Homocysteine “corrodes” collagen, weakening it, leading to unwanted breakdown of collagen throughout your body. The choline portion converts damaging homocysteine into vital health-promoting methionine. What does methionine do?
Methionine is an amino acid with powerful antioxidant properties, protecting you – and your collagen – from free radicals. In addition, methionine plays a significant role in the healthy lipid metabolism which in turn may help prevent plaque formation.
Two, choline helps build healthy cell membranes as it is the essential precursor of phospholipids.
