Food for Heart and Brain Support
Lecithin is a fat-like substance called a phospholipid. It is produced daily by the liver, if the diet is adequate. Lecithin is needed by every cell in the body and largely makes up cell membranes; without it, they would harden. This makes it ideal in preventing arteriosclerosis and assisting in protecting against cardiovascular disease.
Lecithin protects cells from oxidation, and helps make up the protective sheaths surrounding the brain. Using lecithin can improve brain function and has also been known to promote energy.
It is composed largely of B vitamins, phosphoric acid, choline, linoleic acid and inositol. Lecithin aids in the absorption of thiamine by the liver and is needed to help repair the damage to the liver caused by alcoholism.
Although it is a fatty substance, it is also a fat emulsifier—lecithin enables fats, such as cholesterol, to be dispersed in water and removed from the body. Hence, it also supports the circulatory system by preventing fatty buildup in the arteries and vital organs.

How Does it Work?
Lecithin is a fat-like substance often referred to as a phospholipid. If the diet is adequate, lecithin is produced daily by the liver. It is needed by every cell in the body and is a key building block of cell membranes. Although it is a fatty substance, it is also a fat emulsifier. Emulsifiers in the body play an important role in fat digestion and circulatory health. The nervous system may benefit from the choline portion of the lecithin molecule.
Several studies link choline (a key component of lecithin) with learning and memory.
