Lecithin Info

Lecithin is a naturally occurring compound in many plant foods and some animal foods. The liver continually produces lecithin, and its primary role in the body is the breakdown of excess cholesterol and other fats, helping the body maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

Lecithin contains a collection of lipids including two phospholipids that are essential for the health of every tissue in the body. Phosphatidyl choline is an important component of cell membranes and a restorative nutrient for the liver. Phosphatidyl serine helps improve memory, learning, concentration, mood swings and stress response. It has an anti-aging effect on the brain.

Lecithin Benefits

The nervous system, heart and kidney tissues all need lecithin to maintain healthy function. Lecithin is indicated for high cholesterol, gallstones and liver disease. It can help treat liver damage from alcoholism, toxic chemicals, drug use and viral infections, and provide protection from many liver toxins.

Lecithin improves circulation by reducing cholesterol and fats in the bloodstream. It is indicated for treating heart disease, atherosclerosis and hyperlipidaemia.

Lecithin Side Effects

Lecithin is safe to use as directed.

  • Great Value

    star

    Because I love cream & whole milk I've taken Lecithin for years now to keep my cholesterol in check. The Swisse one is particularly good value.
    Have also bought from Healthpost for years because their service is 2nd to none.

    I have only had Lecithin for a week or two and have really only just started to try it out. I am hoping Lecithin might help me with trying to lose weight which does not seem to want to shift, and maybe lives up to it's name it is supposwed to be good for weight loss.
