    LECITHIN DESCRIPTION

    CHOLINE PRECURSOR

    Lecithin comes from the Greek word for egg yolk, "leci-thos". It is a fatty substance which is made internally by the liver and is also present in certain foods. Lecithin is a precursor source of choline, which is needed to make acetylcholine - which is a neurotransmitter essential to normal brain function.

    Lecithin is a type of lipid that is needed by every living cell in the human body. Cell membranes, which regulate the passage of nutrients into and out of the cells, are largely composed of lecithin. The protective sheaths surrounding the brain are composed of lecithin, and the muscles and nerve cells also contain this essential fatty substance. Lecithin consists mostly of B vitamin choline, and also contains linoleic acid and inositol. Although lecithin is a lipid, it is partly soluble in water and thus acts as an emulsiying agent. This is why many processed foods contain lecithin.





    LECITHIN USES, HEALTH BENEFITS & SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE

    LECITHIN MEDICAL & NUTRITIONAL USES

    Lecithin is a nutrient that helps to prevent arteriosclerosis, protects against cardiovascular disease, improves brain function, and aids in the absorption of thiamine by the liver and vitamin A by the intestine. It is also known to promote energy and is needed to help repair damage in the liver caused by alcoholism. Lecithin enables fats, such as cholesterol and other lipids, to be dispersed in water and removed from the body. The vital organs and arteries are thus protected from fatty buildup.

    Lecithin has been used to lower high blood lipid levels, and prevent gallstones. Some studies have shown Lecithin to be somewhat effective in treating senile dementia. Early research suggests some patients with Tardive dyskinesia have had positive results from taking large levels of either Lecithin or choline, which has spurred further testing. It is possible that Lecithin or choline supplements may also help to slow the deterioration of the nerve coverings, which would be beneficial to those with Multiple sclerosis.





    LECITHIN DOSAGE INFORMATION

    SUPPLEMENTS

    Lecithin would be a wise addition to anyone's diet. It is especially valuable for elderly people. Anyone who is taking niacin for high serum cholesterol and triglycerides should also include lecithin in his or her program.

    Two tablespoons of lecithin granules can be sprinkled on cereals and soups or added to juices or breads.
    Lecithin also comes in capsule form. Taking one 1,200 mg capsule before each meal helps in the digestion of fats and the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins.

    Lecithin does not have any reported side effects at levels up to 100 grams per day for up to four months.
    As with any product, read label directions before using.

    Most lecithin is derived from soybeans, but recently egg lecithin has become popular. This type of lecithin is extracted from the yolks of fresh eggs. Egg lecithin may hold promise for those suffering from AIDS, herpes, chronic fatigue syndrome, and immune disorders associated with aging. Studies have shown that it works better for people with these disorders than soy lecithin does. Other sources of lecithin include brewer's yeast, grains, legumes, fish, and wheat germ.





    LECITHIN SAFETY, CAUTIONS, & INTERACTIONS

    SAFETY CONCERNS

    Excessive dosages may cause minor abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, and nausea.

    Safety in young children, pregnant or nursing women, and patients with severe liver or kidney disease is not known.
