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.
Fat has become one of the dirtiest words in the English language with good reason. The accumulation of excess fat can pose a serious threat to both mental and physical health. Ironically, we need fat in our diets and must have it daily so it is important to consume good quality fat.
Although lecithin can be found in egg yolks, corn, and soybeans, Soy derived lecithin is the richest cholesterol-free source of lecithin.
Lecithin aids in maintaining our overall health and is utilised by every cell in our bodies. Of its many benefits, lecithin has been proven to decrease cholesterol, promote cardiovascular health, restore damaged livers and improve the brain's memory function.
One way lecithin aids in preventing or reversing certain diseases and conditions is that since it is predominately comprised of fat itself, it adheres to our cell and nerve linings, forming a sheath, and prevents cholesterol and other fats from sticking. By doing this, in the case of patients with high cholesterol, it decreases the body's ability to absorb cholesterol across the intestinal wall, thus lowering total cholesterol.
Lecithin intervenes with the body's ability to form fat deposits and has aided in reversing the damage caused by coronary artery disease. By creating a slippery lining, it prevents large fat deposits from accumulating, allowing the blood to flow more smoothly when it once was clogged with fat deposits that would lead to blood clots. When it breaks down the body fat, not only does it prevent the fat from collecting in large deposits in our bodies, it then transports it to the liver and converts it into usable energy.
Lecithin is also known to repair livers that have been damaged by abuse such as too much alcohol consumption.
