Lecithin for the Heart
Lecithin is a phospholipid,
which is a group of fatty materials that form a major component
of all biological materials. Lecithin for human consumption can
be isolated from egg yolk or even created in a laboratory. Because
lecithin can be fully metabolized by humans, it is completely non-toxic
and we can take advantage of its various health benefits. Lecithin
can also be used to treat high cholesterol.
Thus far, major studies on lecithin and high cholesterol levels
have used soy-derived lecithin. From soy, the main phospholipids
in it are phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylethanolamine,
and phosphatidic acid. Not only does soy-based lecithin reduce cholesterol
and triglyceride levels, it also increases good cholesterol levels,
also known as HDL.
Since maintaining a healthy heart is one
of the most proactive measures you can take in leading a long, healthy
life, it is a good idea and simple process to incorporate lecithin
into your life. As with any supplement, it is important that you
consult with a doctor before combining anything with current medications
you may have. If you have any questions about lecithin or any other
supplement we have to offer, please do not hesitate to contact us.
