Lecithin is a natural substance produced by the human body and found in many foods. It is a natural emulsifier, which means that it allows oil or fat to mix together with water in a smooth blend. It is so effective for this purpose that it is widely used by the candy and baking industries to blend fats and oils into water. The human body uses it to allow fats and oils to dissolve in the blood and cells, which are mostly water.
Of major importance is its ability to convert cholesterol from a dangerous solid, to a soluble substance that can easily pass through the blood, and in and out of the cells. Lecithin supplements have been found effective in reducing cholesterol deposits on arterial walls, lower its presence in the blood, and to prevent, reduce and remove gallstones.
Lecithin is also a rich source of sphingomyelin and cephalin, which are two very important components of the linings of the brain and nervous tissues. It is also a rich source of phosphatidyl choline, which in conjunction with pantothenic acid, becomes acetylcholine, the brain’s most important neurotransmitter of thought and memory.
Conditions often associated with low blood levels of lecithin are: tardive dyskinesia, Huntington’s disease, Gilles de la Touretta syndrome, Alzheimer’s disease, memory loss, high blood cholesterol, antherosclerosis and gallstones.
Depending upon its source, lecithin may contain either saturated or unsaturated fatty acids. Lecithin derived from Soya beans have unsaturated fatty acids and is considered the best form of lecithin in the control of cholesterol, bile flow and gallstones.
