Quick Overview

Solgar Lecithin 95 Granules (8oz) 227g

Product Description

Solgar Lecithin 95 Granules contain a minimum of 95% phosphatides.

Lecithin is used in foods as a fat emulsifier. As a nutritional supplement, it is a natural source of many nutrients including phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylinositol, phosphatidylserine and other phosphatides. Lecithin's most important physiological function may be its role in the biochemical processes of cell membranes, mitochondria and plasma.

Phospholipids are important compounds found in the structure of all cell membranes. Lecithin, an important source of phospholipids, is needed by every living cell in the human body. Cell membranes that regulate which nutrients may leave or enter a cell are largely composed of lecithin. Without lecithin, a cell membrane would harden. The cell's membrane offers protection from damage by oxidation. The protective sheaths surrounding the brain and nerve cells contain phospholipids as found in lecithin. Additionally, muscles and nerve cells also contain this essential fatty substance.

Lecithin is rich in the B vitamins, especially choline, and although lecithin is a fatty substance, it acts as an emulsifying agent, assisting in the breakdown of fats/cholesterol. It enables fats such as cholesterol and other lipids to be dispersed in water and removed from the body. The vital organs and arteries are protected from fatty build-up with the inclusion of lecithin in the diet.
