|Definition:||Lecithin is a vital compound necessary to maintain the health of cell
membranes which largely regulate life preserving processes on a cellular
level. It is comprised of choline, a B vitamin and also contains inositol,
choline and linoleic acid. While it is technically a fatty substance,
lecithin works to emulsify fats, an important factor in preventing
arteriosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. It also contributes to better
brain function. Lecithin expedites the removal of fats like cholesterol.
Most lecithin is commercially extracted from soybeans or egg sources.
|Applications:||AIDS, herpes, chronic fatigue, arteriosclerosis, high cholesterol, heart
disease, high blood pressure and obesity.
|Recommendations:||Lecithin is commonly sold in granule form or as a capsulized substance
either alone or in combination with other nutrients like glucomannan.|
