Phosphatidylcholine are phospholipids composed of choline and phosphate. They are a major component of cell membranes and are found in high amounts in egg yolks.

Several very small studies have found increased choline in the certain brain structures of CFS patients, suggesting a possible increased oxidation of the cell membranes of neurons in these regions.[1][2][3]
