What is Lecithin?
Lecithin is a natural constituent of every cell of the human body and helps emulsify cholesterol in the body. It is high in phosphorous and unites with iron, iodine, and calcium to give power and vigour to the brain and aid in the digestion and absorption of fats.
What role does lecithin play in the body?
Lecithin may break up cholesterol and allow it to pass through arterial walls, helping prevent arteriosclerosis. It has also been found to increase immunity against viral infections and to prevent the formation of gallstones. Lecithin plays an important part in maintaining a healthy nervous system and is found naturally in the myelin sheath, a fatty protective covering for the nerves. Lecithin is needed by every cell of the body. Cell membranes, which regulate which nutrients may leave or enter the cell, are largely composed of lecithin. Without lecithin the cell membranes would harden. The protective sheaths surrounding the brain are composed of lecithin and the muscles and nerve cells also contain this essential fatty substance. Although Lecithin is a fatty substance, it acts as an emulsifying agent. Most lecithin is derived from soybeans. Lecithin is also available in egg yolk, liver, nuts, whole wheat, unrefined vegetable oils and corn.
