Pure Source Nutrition Lecithin
Lecithin is a fat, namely a phospholipid, and is found in every cell in the body. If phospholipids are not present in sufficient amounts to maintain the cell membrane structure, the membrane loses its ability to protect and nourish the cell.
Lecithin cannot be manufactured by the body, but is essential for health. Therefore, adequate amounts must be provided in the diet.
What Are The Benefits of Lecithin
Even though lecithin is largely composed of the B vitamin choline, it also contains linoleic acid and inositol. It has been nicknamed "nature's emulsifier" because of its detergent-like effect on fat, keeping it suspended in the bloodstream and preventing it from settling on membrane walls. Lecithin acts as a solvent for cholesterol, triglycerides, and other fats. Therefore, it helps to prevent such ailments as high blood pressure, stroke, heart disease, hardening of the arteries, etc.*
Dieters love lecithin because of its emulsifying effect on fat. Accompanied by an appropriate exercise program, Lecithin helps burn fat more quickly. Best results occur with 4,000+ mg daily accompanied with exercise.*
Lecithin plays a vital role in the absorption of nutrients out of the blood stream into the cells. Without adequate Lecithin, our cell membranes harden and malabsorption is the end result. Chemicals from environmental pollutants, heavy metals, drugs, food additives, pesticides, etc., cause hardening of the cellular membrane. Therefore, increasing your Lecithin intake is a wise choice in our world today.*
Lecithin helps reduce or prevent cirrhosis of the liver, because it helps to soften the hardened liver tissue.*
Lecithin acts as a lubricant for the joints and aids maintenance or healing of pancreatic and kidney tissue as well as the bowel lining. The lining of the small intestines is one of the fastest growing tissues in the body, completely renewing itself in about 1 1/2 days. Therefore, additional Lecithin is very beneficial for sufferers of Crohn's Disease, Colitis, and irritable bowel syndrome.*
Lecithin, along with other substances, is used by the liver to make bile. Bile emulsifies fat and fat soluble nutrients like essential fatty acids along with vitamins A, D, E, and K. This emulsion facilitates the absorption of these nutrients into the body.*
Lecithin is also regarded as brain and nerve food. It helps the brain cells develop, is important in the transmission of nerve impulses in the brain, and plays a role in the neurotransmitters that govern short-term memory. Lecithin has been found beneficial in the reduction or prevention of senility and Alzheimer's disease. Some wellness consultants recommend up to 7,000 mg daily to help memory.*
