Lecithin

Lecithin Information

Lecithin contains compounds that are responsible for maintaining the health of cell membranes. With insufficient lecithin, the cell wall may harden, thus limiting the flow of nutrients in or wastes out of the cell. This situation contributes to premature aging of the cells. Lecithinís components are also involved in other crucial cell functions. Lecithin is a mixture of phospholipids that is composed of fatty acids, glycerol, phosphorus, and choline or inositol. All living membranes in the body are composed of lecithin. Although Lecithin is a lipid, it is partly soluble in water and thus acts as an emulsifying agent. This is why many processed foods contain lecithin. Lecithin would be a wise addition to any diet. It is especially valuable for older adults.
