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.
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.
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 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.
