Lecithin is High in Essential Fatty Acids (EFA)

Lecithin was discovered in 1850.  Lecithin is a naturally occurring fatty substance which is found in certain foods like soybeans, whole grains, and egg yolks. Lecithin is a type of lipid needed in every living cell.  It is broken down into choline, phosphate, glycerol, and fatty acids. Choline levels may be low in many individuals, particularly as the American diet includes fewer dairy products, meats, and eggs.

Research has shown that choline is the key element in lecithin. Choline is essential for cardiovascular health, brain function, and cellular membrane composition and repair.

Essential fatty acids, or EFA's, are found in every cell of the body and are necessary for proper growth and functioning of cells, muscles, nerves, and organs. EFA's produce prostaglandins, which are the key to many functions of the body. Inconclusive, yet supportive, research shows that consuming EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids can help to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

Lecithin is a rich source of essential fatty acids. Lecithin is very important because it helps the body utilize vitamins A, B, E, and K. It also naturally breaks down fat and cholesterol into smaller pieces, which will help keep cholesterol from collecting on artery walls.  Lecithin will also help keep food moving through the body efficiently. Lecithin aids in the absorption of thiamine by the liver and vitamin A by the intestine.

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 end result. Chemicals from environmental pollutants will cause hardening of the cellular membrane. Therefore, increasing your Lecithin intake is a wise choice in our world today.

While lecithin is an especially good dietary supplement for the elderly, it is a great addition to anyone’s diet. Vitabase's softgel capsule is a convenient, easy way to get you the lecithin your body needs.
