Lecithin health benefits
is named after the Greek word that means the yolk, and it is a fatty
substance from the group of phospholipids. It consists of glycerol,
phosphoric acid, choline and the two types of fatty acids, linolenic and
inositol, and contains iron, iodine, calcium and
. It is produced by the liver but may be found in certain types of food are
yolk and soy.
Why do we need
Lecithin is necessary to each cell of the human body, because the cell
membranes are mainly composed from lecithin. They allow the passage of
nutrients into cells and exhaust of harmful substances out from cells.
Without lecithin, the membranes would be hardened, and processes disabled.
Lecithin protects cells from oxidation, which also refers to the brain
membrane also made of lecithin. It is used by the muscles and nerves.
Lecithin is used for the prevention of atherosclerosis, as it has the
ability to turn fat into emulsion, which protects from cardiovascular
diseases, improves brain function, increases energy level, repairs damage
caused by alcoholism, helps digestion and absorption of vitamins soluble in
fat. Lecithin also has anti-aging effect, corrects disorders of the immune
system, and relieves symptoms of AIDS, herpes and chronic malnutrition.
This substance is very useful in treating infectious as well as alcoholic
hepatitis and the liver cirrhosis. Lecithin is used to reduce triglycerides
to prevent narrowing of blood vessels and the development of myocardial
infarction and stroke. It is applied as auxiliary remedy for Alzheimer's
disease, bipolar uis disorder, dyskinesia (tremors). Lecithin seems to
stimulate the memory centers, as one of its component Inositol participates
in the brain cells. Lecithin is able to reduce or completely remove the
pain in the joints, where it can be used in much higher doses. Lack of
lecithin leads to forgetfulness, it can cause digestive problems,
intolerance to fats, nausea, elevated blood pressure, problems with joints
Since many people do not feed properly, and the body uses a lot of
lecithin, it does not hurt to take it as a dietary supplement. Of course it
could be in the natural form, such as eating eggs, or by taking capsules of
lecithin. It is used for the regulation of fat in the blood in doses of
500-1000mg daily. For neurological disorders uses 5g of lecithin or more
per day. Lecithin capsules should take with food.
The most of the lecithin positive effects stem from the fact that it is the
main source of choline, which helps digest fat, and it is believed that it
helps the body to burn calories so lecithin is a good support to weight
loss. It, along with it, lowers blood cholesterol.
Choline is part of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which is the reason
why lecithin entering improves mental function.
